Both the Packers and Vikings have clinched a playoff berth but the NFC North is still up for grabs, along with a home game during wild card weekend. Unfortunately for the Vikings, they will likely need to beat the Packers, then the Bears and have the Packers lose again next week to Detroit. If the Packers win, they wrap up the NFC North.

The Cowboys or Eagles will take the fourth seed and host the sixth-seed which will likely be one of these two teams. Minnesota and Green Bay are both winning a bunch of games but have had trouble with strong opponents. This will be a good test for both as they prepare for the playoffs.
