Three weeks to go, and the playoff picture is starting to take shape. The Packers have home field in the NFC essentially locked up, and New Orleans and San Francisco are both in as well. The final three spots in the conference will go to the East winner (either the Giants, Cowboys, or Eagles—yup, they've got a shot), with Detroit and Atlanta controlling their own destinies for the wild cards.
In the AFC, Houston's in for sure, while New England and Baltimore can wrap up spots with wins this weekend. If Denver wins out they'll be AFC West champs, while the Steelers and Jets will be playing in January if they go undefeated, too (the Steelers could even lose a couple). Not that there's plenty of time for more intrigue though...
