The NFC playoff picture didn't stop when the 49ers, Saints, and Cowboys lost games in Week 10, but it did open the door for major changes if teams failed to return.  The Sunday games are all in the books and everyone is back on track. All six teams that opened the weekend at the playoffs are finishing it in the same places they occupied that time last week. The status quo actually extended all the way to the Beijing Order, with the only change being that the Falcons were already one place in front of the Bookers instead of behind them.
Here's how everything looks in NFC after week 11.  Leaders
1. 49ers (9-1) It wasn't the strongest effort in 60 minutes, but the 49ers came up big against Arizona when it counted.
2. The Packers (8-2) They have a bye week to prepare for their swing at first place in Santa Clara next Sunday night.
3. Saints (8-2) Commander-in-Chief in the southern NFC means that the Saints can focus on trying to win a bye.
4. Cowboys (6-4) They put a little space between them and the Eagles, but the division title can still be reduced to their 16th week rematch.
5. Seahawks (8-2) The following Seahawks weekends can help themselves and the Cowboys in Fili.
6. Vikings (8-3) A 20-point rebound during halftime kept the Vikings' Wild Card offer in good shape.
EXTERNAL VIEW IN
7. Aries (6-4) They got the necessary win on Sunday night and will need another against the Ravens hot team in Week 12. 8.
8. Eagles (5-5) The offense seized by the patriots and eagles, he can't afford too many days like this.
9. Panthers (5-5) When one of your players calls your performance a "horror football comedy," things don't go in the right direction.
10. Bears (4-6) A terrible night against the Rams leaves the Bears without error.
11. The Lions (3-6-1) Sunday began with the word of Matthew Stafford, who probably missed the rest of the season and didn't get better from there.
12. Cardinals (3-7-1) Kukerback freshman Keeler Murray will be the key to the rest of the Arizona season.
13. Falcons (3-7) Where were those falcons in the first half of the season?
14. Buccaneers (3-7) Good feelings for James Winston from last week were replaced by four interceptions this week.
15. Giants (2-8) It's been a rare week without losing to the Giants, but they'll have to take the field next weekend.
16. Washington (1-9) They pulled off a difficult feat on Sunday, making the Jets look like a powerful football team.
