The NFL playoff picture is set.

NFC

Seattle (13-3) is the No. 1 seed and Carolina (12-4) is seeded second. Both get first-round byes and Seattle has home-field advantage throughout the playoffs.

In wild-card weekend, Saturday’s late game has New Orleans, the No. 6 seed, visiting No. 3 Philadelphia. Kickoff for that matchup is slated for 8:10 p.m. on NBC. Wild-card weekend wraps up on Sunday with the NFC’s other matchup: No. 5 San Francisco travels to Lambeau Field to square off against No. 4 Green Bay at 4:40 p.m. on Fox.
