Updating NFC South playoff picture

The NFL just sent out the updated and official list of postseason-clinching scenarios for this weekend’s games and we’ve got several things to look at from an NFC South perspective.

Let’s start with the Atlanta Falcons, who already have clinched a playoff berth. But there is one very clear scenario in which the Falcons can clinch the NFC South title and home-field advantage.

They can do it by winning against the New Orleans Saints on Monday night. One other way, they can do the same thing: Tie with New Orleans on Monday night.

Now, let’s move over to the Saints. There are a couple of ways they can clinch a playoff berth this weekend and it could already be taken care of before the Monday night game. That would happen if Tampa Bay loses to or ties with Seattle on Sunday afternoon.

The other way the Saints can clinch a playoff berth is to win or tie against the Falcons. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers (8-6) still have a mathematical shot at a playoff berth. But there are no scenarios in which the Bucs can clinch anything (other than a winning season) this weekend.
