It surprised me how plausible the scenario is for the Seahawks to end up with the #2 seed, guaranteeing a first round bye and a playoff home game.
Here's one incredibly realistic scenario:
1. Seahawks win out
2. 49ers lose at the Patriots (week 15)
3. Giants lose at the Ravens (week 16)
4. Packers lose at the Bears (week 15) OR at the Vikings (week 17)
