NFL Playoff Picture for the NFC Going Into Week 18

The final week of the NFL season is here. Contrary to the jumbled mess that is the AFC, the NFL playoff picture for the NFC is almost complete.

Updates from last week include another team punching their ticket and the Green Bay Packers locking up the No. 1 seed. Six teams have clinched a playoff spot leaving just one remaining seat at the table. Only two teams remain in contention to land that final postseason berth. Who has punched their ticket into the playoffs? Who is still fighting for their chance? The following is the fully updated NFL playoff picture for the NFC heading into Week 18.
