The Redskins lost to the Titans yesterday 25-16, dropping their record to 7-8, behind the Eagles in both the NFC East and wild card playoff races.

Here’s how the NFC postseason race looks this morning:

y — 1. New Orleans Saints (12-2): NFC South champions. Need one more win to claim home-field advantage. They’d also get it if Rams and Bears both lose.

y — 2. Los Angeles Rams (11-3): NFC West champions. They’re now 3-3 after that 8-0 start. But a win over Arizona combined with a Chicago loss would give L.A. a first-round bye.

y — 3. Chicago Bears (10-4): NFC North champions. Division champs and playoff bound for first time since 2010. Bears’ turnaround means for 15th time in past 16 NFL seasons, at least one team has gone from worst to first after a last-place finish in previous year. Earlier victory over Rams gives them decent shot of getting a bye. Win this week would guarantee they can’t finish with seed worse than No. 3.

4. Dallas Cowboys (8-6): NFC East leader. Division is theirs with one more win. A loss by the Eagles would also clinch it.

5. Seattle Seahawks (8-6): Wild card No. 1. Washington’s loss means win-and-in scenario for Seahawks against Kansas City.

6. Minnesota Vikings (7-6-1): Wild card No. 2. If they topple Detroit, and Philly loses, then Minnesota clinches a wild card.

7. EAGLES (7-7): Don’t qualify for postseason at this point.
8. Washington Redskins (7-8): Don’t qualify for postseason at this point.
9. Carolina Panthers (6-8): Don’t qualify for postseason at this point.

x — clinched playoff berth
y — clinched division
