Every Week 17 NFC Playoff Scenario

Kevin Seifert at ESPN.com has a handy chart explaining which team will get which playoff seed in the NFC depending on how Week 17 shakes out, and assuming there are no ties.

It's almost guaranteed that the Cardinals and Packers will meet in Week 17 and then have a rematch in the Wild Card round one week later. Less likely, but possible, that the Eagles and Cowboys will do the same.

Browns Put Brady Quinn On IR

Quinn injured his foot late in last week's win over Kansas City.

Note to Eric Mangini: Please, please go with Josh Cribbs at quarterback full-time. It's probably your best chance to win, it's for sure your most entertaining option, and it's not like you're going to be back next year one way or the other.

Here's An Injury That Nearly Caused Mora To Snap

As noted in Audibles, Seahawks coach Jim Mora was forced to use 170-pound backup cornerback Kelly Jennings as a long snapper against Tampa Bay yesterday. Mora takes a subtle shot at outgoing general manager Tim Ruskell for not putting a backup long snapper on the team, but that doesn't explain why he was holding tryouts on the sideline -- you've been coaching this team all year and you never had a Plan B for this scenario?
