The NFC-leading Dallas Cowboys are definitely heading to the playoffs after clinching at least a wild-card spot Sunday. The other 11 slots?
Here's who would claim them (and which two teams in each conference would just miss out) if the NFL regular season ended today.
AFC #1 seed: Oakland Raiders (10-2)
The Raiders are back in the AFC driver's seat after their 38-24 win over Buffalo gave Oakland a better winning percentage over common opponents than the Patriots. Their conference and division lead will be heavily tested in a Thursday matchup with the Chiefs in Arrowhead.
AFC #2 seed: New England Patriots (10-2)
The Pats lost Rob Gronkowski for the season but gained one game Sunday on both the Dolphins and Bills in the AFC East.
AFC #3 seed: Baltimore Ravens (7-5)
Before a potential AFC North-deciding Christmas Day showdown with the Steelers, the Ravens get to play the Patriots in Foxborough next Monday night.
AFC #4 seed: Houston Texans (6-6)
The Texans currently hold a tiebreaker over fellow .500 division foes Tennessee and Indianapolis after Sunday's loss in Green Bay.
AFC #5 seed: Kansas City Chiefs (9-3)
An Eric Berry "pick-two" sealed a win over the Falcons on Sunday and kept the Chiefs a game ahead in the race for the first AFC wild-card spot.
AFC #6 seed: Denver Broncos (8-4)
Nothing like a trip to Jacksonville to get a team back into the playoff picture. They'll head to Tennessee on Sunday before a brutal final three games versus New England, Kansas City and Oakland.
AFC #7 seed: Miami Dolphins (7-5)
After reeling off six straight wins, it took a 38-6 beating from the Ravens on Sunday to put the Dolphins on the outside of the playoff picture yet again.
AFC #8 seed: Pittsburgh Steelers (7-5)
Head-to-head tiebreakers are currently keeping the Steelers just outside of the AFC North lead and just behind the Dolphins for the first wild-card runner-up spot. If Pittsburgh keeps playing like it did Sunday against the Giants, that won't be the case by the end of the season.
The Falcons hold the tiebreaker in the NFC South over the Bucs due to a better division record. They've already finished their head-to-head season series, but the Falcons have only two NFC South games remaining while the Bucs finish with three of their last four in the division.
NFC #5 seed: New York Giants (8-4)
The Giants struggled in their Sunday loss to the Steelers, but their grip on the first NFC wild-card spot didn't suffer much.
NFC #6 seed: Tampa Bay Buccaneers (7-5)
The Bucs have ridden four straight wins into the final NFC wild-card spot. Will they be able to maintain that momentum for another four weeks?
NFC #7 seed: Washington Redskins (6-5-1)
A 31-23 loss to Arizona on Sunday dropped the Redskins out of the playoff picture for the time being. I'm sure head coach Jay Gruden didn't voice any concern about that after the game, right?
NFC #8 seed: Minnesota Vikings (6-6)
The Vikings still hold a head to head tiebreaker over the fellow 6-6 Packers, but neither team's chances of clinching a wild card spot or NFC North title is looking particularly great at the moment.
