Around the NFC South: Everyone but the Bucs are in the playoffs right now, with the Saints hosting the Panthers in Week 13. Coincidentally, the Saints would host the Panthers if the playoffs were to start today. Meanwhile, the Falcons host the Vikings.

Matchups to watch: The Saints are going to have to get some major help if they have any hopes of getting a first round bye. The Rams face the Cardinals, while the Eagles travel to Seattle to take on the Seahawks.

For those interested, the only thing that could help move New Orleans up would be a Rams loss. Of course, we’re assuming the Saints win.
