NFL Playoff Schedule: NFC Bracket Breakdown Leaves Possibility Of Seattle NFC Championship Open

Take a look at the NFC playoff bracket this morning. Step one to world domination was the Green Bay Packers’ win over the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday. That now opens the possibility that the Seahawks could, conceivably, host the NFC Championship Game, should the cards fall right. First up, of course, is the NFL playoff schedule this weekend, with the Seahawks traveling to Chicago to face the Bears.

Here’s how it all shakes out right now.

NFC
No. 1 Atlanta Falcons vs. No. 6 Green Bay Packers at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta, Saturday at 5 p.m. on FOX.
No. 2 Chicago Bears vs. No. 4 Seattle Seahawks at Soldier Field in Chicago, Sunday at 10 a.m. on FOX.

See how it would all work? A Seahawks win, coupled with a Packers win, leaves Seattle as the highest-seed left in the NFC. At that point, our lowly Seahawks, of a 7-9 regular season record, would return to Qwest Field to give the 12th man one final show. As we saw against the New Orleans Saints, anything can happen when the 12th man is involved. Even a small earthquake.

First things first, the Seahawks have to take care of business this week in Chicago. It all kicks off Sunday morning at 10 a.m. on Fox. Stay with our StoryStream for more on the NFL playoff schedule and brackets ahead of this weekend’s games.
