Advocate Staff Report

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): first-round bye + home-field advantage throughout the playoffs.
