There are a lot of games that are exciting, and some that could help or hurt the Minnesota Vikings.

The Rams are biting at the heels of the Vikings so a loss by them would help. The Packers have to beat the Bears and the Lions to win the division. So, if the Bears win, that puts Minnesota back in the hunt for the division.

Seattle is way ahead in the wild card race. A loss by them would put the Vikings closer to a better seed.

However, for the seeding, we should watch the SF and NO games close this week. The seeding could change again. I think Baltimore has a firm hold on the Number One spot for the AFC, but NE looks beatable, so it will be interesting how the seeding shapes up on that side.

Here are the picks.

New York Jets  Baltimore Ravens
Buffalo Bills Pittsburgh Steelers
Chicago Bears Green Bay Packers
Denver Broncos Kansas City Chiefs
Houston Texans Tennessee Titans
Miami Dolphins New York Giants
New England Patriots Cincinnati Bengals
Philadelphia Eagles Washington Redskins
Seattle Seahawks Carolina Panthers
Tampa Bay Buccaneers Detroit Lions
Cleveland Browns Arizona Cardinals
Jacksonville Jaguars Oakland Raiders
Atlanta Falcons San Francisco 49ers
Los Angeles Rams Dallas Cowboys
Minnesota Vikings Los Angeles Chargers
Indianapolis Colts New Orleans Saints
