Now that the New Orleans Saints have secured the No. 1 overall seed in the NFC, the next question is...

Whom might they face in the divisional (second) round of the playoffs?

Because New Orleans is the NFC's No. 1 seed, it will have a bye week in the Wild Card (first) round of the playoffs. When the Saints play their first playoff game (the weekend of Jan. 12-13) they'll face the lowest-seeded team who won in the first round.

Here's a look at potential seeds and matchups:

1. Saints (13-2): Clinched first-round bye + home-field advantage throughout the playoffs.

Game to watch:

Carolina at New Orleans (noon; note this game wI'll be shown on FOX locally in south Louisiana)

2. Rams (12-3) OR Bears (11-4): If Los Angeles wins its season finale against the 49ers (4-11), the Rams will earn the No. 2 seed. If the Rams lose and Chicago beats Minnesota, the Bears will earn the No. 2 seed.

Games to watch:

San Francisco vs. LA (3:25 p.m.; note that's game won't be aired on FOX locally in south Louisiana)

Chicago vs Minnesota (3:25 p.m.; note this game will be aired on FOX locally in south Louisiana)

3. Either Rams or Bears ... this team will host the No. 6 seed in a first-round playoff game.

4. Cowboys (9-6): Dallas is locked into the No. 4 seed after winning the NFC East and having the worst record of the four division champions. Dallas will host the No. 5 seed in the first round of the playoffs.

Game to watch:

Dallas at New York Giants (noon; note that this game will not be shown on FOX locally in south Louisiana)

5. Seahawks (9-6): Seattle has clinched either the No. 5 or No. 6 seed after defeating Kansas City on Sunday night. Seattle hosts lowly Arizona in the final week of the regular season. If Seattle beats the Cardinals, it'll retain the No. 5 seed.

Game to watch:

Arizona at Seattle (3:25 p.m.; note this game will not be shown on FOX locally in south Louisiana)

6. Vikings (8-6-1): Minnesota isn't in the playoffs yet. It plays at Chicago in the regular season finale. The Bears themselves have much to play for -- a possible No. 2 seed if Los Angeles slips up in its final regular season game. If the Vikings win, they're in.

Still in the hunt: Eagles (8-7) ... The defending Super Bowl champs aren't out of it. Philadelphia plays at Washington (7-8), who's been eliminated from the playoffs. The Eagles can sneak into the playoffs with a win vs. Washington and a loss by the Vikings.

Game to watch:

Philadelphia at Washington (3:25 p.m.; note this game will not be shown on FOX locally in south Louisiana)

For New Orleans, its divisional round opponent could be Dallas, Seattle, Minnesota or Philadelphia. The Saints lost at Dallas this season and won at home vs. Philadelphia and at Minnesota.
