Here's a glimpse at the 10 teams that have made the playoffs.
Going wrong: Left tackle Mike Gandy is done for the season after undergoing surgery for a hernia. His replacement, Jeremy Bridges, has been inconsistent.
It's a wrap: Thanks to the Vikings' loss Monday, the Saints secured home-field advantage despite back-to-back losses. They finish at Carolina.
Going right: In his last three road games, Drew Brees has eight touchdown passes and one interception.
It's a wrap: The Eagles visit the Cowboys with the winner clinching the NFC East. An Eagles victory earns them the second seed.
Going right: During the course of their six-game winning streak, the Eagles have averaged 31.2 points and more than two takeaways.
Going wrong: The Eagles lost Jamaal Jackson, who hadn't missed a start since taking over at center in 2005, to a knee injury last Sunday.
It's a wrap: The Cowboys could wind up with the No. 2 seed. To get that, they would need a victory over the Eagles and losses by the Vikings and Cardinals.
Going right: In December 2008, Tony Romo had nine turnovers. This December? Just one.
It's a wrap: The Vikings have lost three of four but still can collect a first-round bye with a victory over the Giants and an Eagles loss.
Going right: According to Elias Sports Bureau, the Vikings are only the second NFL team to have six receivers with at least 40 catches.
Going wrong: Adrian Peterson's six fumbles are the most by any running back.
It's a wrap: The Packers finish against the Cardinals and could be right back in Arizona for a wild-card game next weekend.
Going right: Aaron Rodgers is the first quarterback to throw for 4,000 yards in each of his first two seasons as a starter.
Going wrong: The Packers are the league's most penalized team with 114 for 1,038 yards.
It's a wrap: The second-seeded Chargers have clinched their fourth consecutive AFC West title and a first-round bye.
Going wrong: Stopping the run is still a problem for the Chargers, ranked 23rd in that department.
Going right: Manning & Co. set an NFL record by winning seven games in which they trailed in the fourth quarter.
Going wrong: If karma matters, the Colts put themselves in a deep hole by tanking it last Sunday. When else has a 14-0 team been booed so roundly at home?
Going right: The Bengals are the AFC's best team against the run, allowing an average of 87.7 yards.
Going wrong: Eight snaps into last Sunday's game against the Chiefs, rookie linebacker Rey Maualuga heard another snap: his ankle. It's fractured, and he's done for the season.
Going right: Tom Brady said last Sunday's pounding of the Jaguars was "the best 60 minutes of football we've played all year."
Going wrong: If the Patriots win their postseason opener, they will play a divisional game on the road, where they are 1-5 this season.
