With the Cowboys' win over the Eagles and the Packers' win over the Cardinals, the NFC playoff picture is all set:

The New Orleans Saints and the Minnesota Vikings own the top two seeds. They'll get byes in the first round and host games in the divisional round. The Saints get the lower-seeded winner from wild-card weekend, and the Vikings get the other team.

Wild-card matchups for next weekend:

No. 3 Dallas vs. No. 6 Philadelphia (Saturday, 8 p.m. on NBC)

If the Eagles can beat the Cowboys, they will travel to New Orleans to take on the Saints in the divisional round.

Under no circumstances can the Eagles host a playoff game. They've played their last football at the Linc this season.
