Playoff Hopefuls NFC With the regular season winding down, teams are competing for playoff position and the chance to compete for the Lombardi trophy. This year in the NFC most of the teams to get into the playoffs have been decided due to the separation in record from the top 7 teams to the bottom 9 teams barring a late season collapse. But the top seeds are still up for grabs and no one knows how the seeding will end up. Let's take a look at the teams hoping to gain playoff position as the season comes to an end. 1. Detroit Lions- The Lions have the most potent offense in the NFL led by Matt Stafford and Calvin Johnson aka Megatron. They have put up a league high 459 points and are currently on a six game win streak. They are neck and neck with the Vikings for the NFC North lead and have split both games with the Vikings. No one wants to face this offense right now. 2. Arizona Cardinals- The Cardinals have the second highest scoring offense in the NFL behind the legs of Daryl Richardson and Ryan Williams. With both backs producing it makes it tough on opposing defenses to defend when a fresh running back can come in while the other is resting. They are currently tied with San Francisco, who they split both games with, for the NFC West lead and it looks like this race will come down to week 17.
