NFL playoff picture Week 14: Eagles, Vikings lead NFC, Bills pass Chiefs in AFC

Who will be the top seeds in the NFL playoffs?

We're almost 13 complete weeks into the season and some teams have given themselves a chance to be the No. 1 seed in their respective conferences for the NFL playoffs.

In the NFC, the Philadelphia Eagles are 11-1 and atop the conference, but the 10-2 Minnesota Vikings aren't far behind, with the 9-3 Dallas Cowboys still in striking distance.

The AFC is even tighter with the 9-3 Buffalo Bills currently holding a tiebreaker over the 9-3 Kansas City Chiefs for the top seed in that conference.

The Baltimore Ravens, Cincinnati Bengals and Miami Dolphins are all 8-4, right on Buffalo and Kansas City's heels.

NFL Week 14 odds: Raiders vs. Rams | Jets vs. Bills | Browns vs. Bengals | Texans vs. Cowboys | Vikings vs. Lions | Eagles vs. Giants | Ravens vs. Steelers | Jaguars vs. Titans | Chiefs vs. Broncos | Panthers vs. Seahawks | Buccaneers vs. 49ers | Dolphins vs. Chargers | Patriots vs. Cardinals

The top seed in each conference gets a bye in the wild card round of the NFL postseason and the other division winners get the No. 2 through No. 4 seeds.

The No. 5, No. 6 and No. 7 seeds go to the non-division winners with the best records.

Here's how the NFC and AFC playoffs would look if the postseason began after NFL Week 13.
