Couple things that stuck out to me

Packers and Vikings had to play 6 road games and 9 games total against > 500 teams because Vikings, Bears, Packers, Seahawks, 49ers, Texans and Colts finished above 500 in their divisional schedules ( Packers also played the Giants, Vikings the Redskins in their crossovers, neither played Atlanta )

No team was better than .500 on the road in these match-ups except..

Atlanta is secretly undefeated in these match-ups this year, though 2 of those were against the Broncos and Redskins figuring themselves out early in the season. ( The 3rd the curb stomping of the Giants of course )

Other than Atlanta, the teams with the best home records are wildcards and either can't play at home, or can't play at home unless 5vs6 in the championship.

The Seahawks of course, 4-0 at home with the comebacks against the Pats and Packers and the stomping of the 49ers and that kind of "blah" mid season match up against the Vikings in which both teams called it must win and made it anyway. The Packers win is of course the Packers game, but it is what it is. Worse calls have happened in the past before replay.

Side note, the Giants were 1-3 last year. All in the 2nd half of the season including losses to the Packers and 49ers, 1-2 on the road, before going 4-0 in the playoffs beating the Packers and 49ers and the Patriots again.

IE, any of the 5 teams no the Vikings in whomever prevails from the series of coin flip games we will call the NFC playoffs.
