Saints await winner of NFC West

The Saints are the #5 seed in the playoffs and will travel to play the winner of the Rams/Seahawks game.

The Rams (7-8) and Seattle (6-9) have both lost by large margins to the Saints this year (18, 15) but will win the NFC West division and clinch a home game in the wildcard playoffs.  Neither team will have a winning record when they host the Saints. They play in the final regular season game of the season tonight, a 7:20pm CT kickoff from Seattle.

The Falcons clinched the #1 seed and home field advantage with a blowout victory over the Panthers today.  The Bucs kept their hopes alive by beating the Saints.  Tampa will await two 3:15 kickoffs to learn their fate.
