NEW YORK (AP) - The Arizona Cardinals (11-3) can clinch the NFC West and home-field advantage throughout the conference playoffs with a win over division rival Seattle on Sunday night.

New England and Denver (both 11-3) can lock up first-round byes with victories in the second-to-last week of the regular season. The Patriots would secure home-field advantage if they beat the Jets and the Broncos lose at Cincinnati on Monday night.

The Bengals (9-4-1), Steelers (9-5) and Lions (10-4) can earn a playoff spot with victories. Because of tiebreakers, the Seahawks (10-4), Packers (10-4), Cowboys (10-4) and Ravens (9-5) need help to wrap up postseason berths even if they win.

The Saints can clinch the NFC South with a 7-8 record with a victory over Atlanta and a loss by Carolina.
