assures them of their fourth straight non-winning record. Chicago (3-8) will miss the postseason for the 10th Womens Zach Parise Jersey time in 11 years, and is 12-31 under John Fox. The Bears aren't going anywhere. That's a running theme in Chicago. -- Jeff Dickerson
The postseason is still the goal for the Lions, sitting at 6-5 with five games remaining. The Thanksgiving loss to Minnesota squandered most realistic chances at a division title, but a wild-card berth is still possible.
To do that, Detroit has to go no worse than 4-1 down the stretch and potentially get some help. The benefit for Detroit is none of the teams left on the schedule are dominant by any means and this is a possibility to happen, but a lot will be known within the next two weeks as trips to Baltimore and Tampa Bay await. -- Michael Rothstein
The Packers are playing for the chance to make it worthwhile for Rodgers to come back following collarbone surgery and play in the final two or three weeks. In order for that to happen, they're probably going to have win at least two of the next three games. Otherwise, they'll be out of they playoff picture and there would be no reason to put Rodgers in harm's way until next season. -- Rob Demovsky
Minnesota (9-2) is in contention for the No. 2 seed in the NFC and already has wins over the Rams and Saints, which could play an important role if there ends up being a three-way tie between those teams. The Vikings furthered their grip on the division after beating the Lions on Thanksgiving to give themselves a three-game lead in the NFC North. If they keep winning -- they have an upcoming stretch that includes Atlanta, Carolina and Green Bay on the road -- they'll lock up ideal positioning for the postseason. -- Courtney Cronin
The 7-4 Falcons and riding a three-game winning streak, have plenty of time to make a push for a good playoff seed and possibly even the NFC South title. They're right behind New Orleans and Carolina in the division race, and they could make up a lot of ground by defeating the Saints in Weeks 14 and 16. Although the Falcons play their next two games at home, facing the Vikings and Saints back to back won't be an easy task. But the Falcons are definitely back in the type of offensive groove that carried them all the way to the Chris Jones Authentic Jersey Super Bowl last season. -- Vaughn McClure
The Panthers have a lot to play for over the final five games, beginning with next Sunday's game against New Orleans for the NFC South lead. Win that game and then win out, and Carolina has a chance to win the division for the fourth time in five years. It'll be hard to catch Philadelphia for the top seed in the NFC, particularly since the Eagles beat Carolina earlier this year. But the No. 2 seed definitely is in play. -- David Newton
You'd think the Saints could have gained some separation with their eight-game win streak that was snapped in Sunday's 26-20 loss at the Rams. Instead, they're currently stuck behind the pack as the No. 4 seed in the NFC. And the top three teams Authentic Mike Remmers Jersey in the NFC South are separated by one game -- 8-3 Saints, 8-3 Panthers and 7-4 Falcons. The Saints won at Carolina in Week 3, which is huge. But they've got to host the Panthers again this week, then play Atlanta twice in Weeks 14 and 16. In other words, the season is just getting started. -- Mike Triplett
At this point, the 4-7 Bucs -- who are 0-3 in the NFC South -- are playing for pride and the jobs of Koetter and his staff. General manager Jason Licht and the front office also feel the effects of a season that has been one of the biggest disappointments in years. Then there's the situation with Jameis Winston. With so much uncertainty surrounding an investigation that's expected to drag on into next year, the snaps for veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick mean a lot more. He contemplated retiring this offseason and he's currently on a one-year deal. If players continue to fight and are able to salvage some level of respectability this season, it could convince Fitzpatrick to keep playing, something the Bucs sure could use next year. -- Jenna Laine
It might be a long shot for the 5-6 Cardinals, but the postseason is still a possibility. They just have to keep winning. A lot. Winning their division might be out of the question considering the Rams are 8-3 and don't look like they're slowing down. But a combination of wins and losses by a few teams ahead of them in the race for the wild card could shift the playoff landscape in favor of the Cardinals. They're current two games back from the last wild-card spot, presently occupied by the Falcons, who own the tiebreaker over the Seahawks. -- Josh Weinfuss
