6. Pit (6-4)  Pit (6-5)  Pit (7-5)  Pit (7-6)  Cin (8-6)  Cin (9-6)
------------  ---------  ---------  ---------  ---------
7. Cin (5-5)  Cin (6-5)  Cin (7-5)  Cin (7-6)  Pit (7-7)

Tiebreakers: In the NFC, Minnesota's divisional record of 3-2 is a game better than the Bears and hence the Vikings currently have that last playoff spot (the teams split their two meetings). The same story applies to Dallas and New York, who have a very small chance of getting that last playoff spot (they need to win; Dallas, Chicago, and Minnesota all need to lose).

In the AFC, all six spots are clinched. Houston maintain top spot due to their win over Denver back in week 3.

Best,

Sean
