I just take a quick look at the playoff picture on NFL.com. We all know that probably 5 of the 6 spots are talen (49ers, Packers, Bears, Giants and Falcons).
We are in a group of 5 for the last spots with: Vikes, Lions, Bucs and Cards.
Out of all the teams, I believe that we have the easiest schedule compare to the talent that we have on our team.
Here are the schedules for each of the team.
Seahawks: vs. Jets (3-5), at Dolphins (4-4), at Bears (7-1), vs. Cardinals (4-5), at Bills (3-5), vs. 49ers (6-2), vs. Rams (3-5)
Vikes: vs. Lions (4-4), at Bears (7-1), at Packers (6-3), vs. Bears (7-1), at Rams (3-5), at Texans (7-1), vs. Packers (6-3)
Lions: at Vikings (5-4), vs. Packers (6-3), vs. Texans (7-1), vs. Colts (5-3), at Packers (6-3), at Cardinals (4-5), vs. Falcons (8-0), vs. Bears (7-1)
Bucs: vs. Chargers (4-4), at Panthers (1-6), vs. Falcons (8-0), at Broncos (5-3), vs. Eagles (3-4), at Saints (2-5), vs. Rams (3-5), at Falcons (8-0)
Cards: at Falcons (8-0), vs. Rams (3-5), at Jets (3-5), at Seahawks (5-4), vs. Lions (4-4), vs. Bears (7-1), at 49ers (6-2)
With the schedule of the Vikes and Lions I count them out. For the Cards it will surprised me a lot if they can pull it back together. And for the Bucs facing twice the Falcons and once the Broncos could hurt them.
I believe that we are a good contender for the last spot if we finish with a record of 9-7
What do you guys think?

Seriously that Vikings schedule is just brutal in the second half. From what I saw yesterday, I think that I feel safe in saying the Vikings are out

We're a game back of them with a (lol) tie breaker.
any team that passes us from here on out will deserve it.
Vikings and Detroit have tougher schedules. I give them a disadvantage.
Seattle, Green Bay, Tampa. 3 teams fighting for 2 spots.
Chicago holds the key to the playoffs.
They, at 7-1, have played absolutely nobody. And they still have to play everyone in the playoff hunt.
vs Houston, @ San Fran, vs Minnesota, vs Seattle, @ Minnesota, vs Green Bay, @ Arizona, @ Detroit.

Badda Bing! However, if you look at the Lions schedule, it is "bad ass"!

Of the remaining games - Dolphins, Bears, Bills and Niners, it's not unfair to expect to split those to get to ten. Even if you win one of those four - nine wins might get you in.
