The Minnesota Vikings and San Francisco 49ers have a lot in the balance
The late games have huge playoff implications in the NFC playoff picture, here are your score updates in the NFL's 4 p.m. slate of games.
Win and they're in -- the path is clear for the Minnesota Vikings as they look to eliminate their division rival Chicago Bears. A victory at home against the Green Bay Packers would set up a rematch as early as next week with the Packers, as the teams would meet in the Wild-Card round.
Over in the NFC West, the San Francisco 49ers are also pulling for Minnesota Vikings win, as it would ensure a first-week bye for the 49ers. Up by three touchdowns over the Arizona Cardinals, it doesn't look like the Seattle Seahawks will find a back door into winning the NFC West, as they needed a win today and a 49ers loss to capture the division.
Minnestota Vikings- 27 vs. Green Bay Packers- 24
San Francisco 49ers- 27 vs. Arizona Cardinals- 6
Seattle Seahawks- 13 vs. St. Louis Rams- 13
