We've almost got an official NFL playoffs schedule.
With Week 17 wins by the Packers and Colts, only one playoff spot remains up for grabs, and it will be decided when the Rams and Seahawks clash in Seattle for the NFC West.
We won't get that official NFL playoffs schedule until after that game is decided, but we can project the 2011 NFL playoffs schedule based on the standings as they are: the NFL playoff picture came into sharp focus just moments ago.
