That Washington-Dallas matchup is interesting, because Washington is locked into the #4 seed and a guaranteed home game, so it can afford to rest some starters.

There are a lot of weird scenarios this week that create interesting incentives for teams.  I haven't looked at these closely yet, but at first glance..

- If the Packers lose, they play Washington, if they win, they play Seattle.

- If the Chiefs win, they're the 3 seed, but as the 5 seed they would get to play Houston.  However, they could drop to 6 if they lose.

- How hard will New England push for the 1 seed, with their team as injured as it is?  Will they rest some banged up players?
