NFC again goes through Seattle; Packers, Panthers clinch

Last updated: Dec 28, 2014 9:56 PM

Over in the NFC, Seattle clinched homefield advantage for the second straight year with a 20-6 win over St. Louis.

Green Bay will have the other NFC bye, thanks to their 30-20 win over Detroit, during which Aaron Rodgers returned from an aggravation of his calf injury. The Lions will play at Dallas in the wild card round, but it remains to be seen whether they'll have Ndamukong Suh at their disposal, as he stomped on Rodgers' injured calf and could face suspension.

The final NFC berth goes to the Panthers, who blew out Atlanta 34-3 and will host a game despite being one of the worst ever teams to reach the postseason (statistically speaking).
