The wild-card is still in play, though, as a look at the NFC playoff picture will tell you. With that in mind here are a couple of games of interest today.
Seattle Seahawks (6-7) at Chicago Bears (7-6), 1 p.m. -- The Bears are reeling without quarterback Caleb Hanie and running back Matt Forte. They have lost three straight and have scored only 13 total points the past two weeks. The Seahawks have actually won four of five and a victory today puts them in position to start thinking realistically about a wild-card berth. Go Seahawks! Line: Bears by 4
Detroit Lions (8-5) at Oakland Raiders (7-6), 4:05 p.m. -- The Lions are holding the second wild card spot right now, but are just 3-5 since a 5-0 start. The Raiders, though, might not be much help. Oakland has given up 80 total points in losses to Miami and Green Bay the past two weeks. Line: Lions by 1.5
