It was a wild Week 10 and we saw some movement in the NFC playoff race. At the very top, nothing changed, as the Carolina Panthers stayed undefeated with a 27-10 win over the Tennessee Titans. But a huge upset by the Detroit Lions over the Green Bay Packers and a big NFC West win by the Arizona Cardinals in Seattle has shaken up the playoff picture.
Here are the current NFC standings:
The Cardinals all but locked up the NFC West on Sunday, knocking off the Seahawks in Seattle 39-32, giving them a three-game lead in the division with seven weeks to go. At 7-2, they are ahead of the Vikings because of a better record in the NFC. Arizona is 5-1 in the conference, while the Vikings are 4-1.
Such is also the case for the Packers over the Falcons. Green Bay is 4-2 in the NFC, while the Falcons are 4-3.
If the playoffs started today, the Panthers and Cardinals would have a bye. The Vikings would host the Falcons, and the Giants would host the Packers on Wild Card Weekend.
