The article focuses on contest among football teams for playoff spots. Even with the Indianapolis Colts locking up home-field advantage in the AFC, the Seattle Seahawks closing in on a No. 1 seed in the NFC and the New England Patriots and the Cincinnati Bengals in control in weak divisions, there are some popular races for playoff spots. After falling hard at Pittsburgh, the Chicago Bears have to deal with Michael Vick next week and then the archrival Green Bay Packers at Lambeau. The wildcards are the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Dallas Cowboys.
