Another year, another NFL season with the Rams watching the playoffs at home. It's set up for an interesting postseason for the NFC West, though.

The Seahawks rebounded after starting their season 2-4 to grab the last seed in the conference and are playing some of the best football in the league. In fact, the Seahawks capped their regular season with a 36-6 demolition of the NFC #2 seed Arizona Cardinals. With Carson Palmer healthy for this year's run, it's a huge opportunity for Arizona HC Bruce Arians to establish himself as one of the best coaches in the league after turning the Cardinals franchise around.
