The NFL is past its midway point for the 2018 season and there are a number of teams still battling for a playoff spot. While the Bears, Cowboys, and Saints all kept ahold of or moved into spots this past Thursday, other teams will try to do the same on Sunday. Here are five games to watch with possible playoff implications.

1

Seahawks at Panthers (1 p.m. ET, FOX)

As of this report, the Carolina Panthers are clinging to the fifth seed in the NFC Playoff Picture with their 6-4 record. However, if the Seattle Seahawks win, they'll both have 6-5 records. It would mean there are four teams with that record, as the Dallas Cowboys and Washington Redskins are also both 6-5 at the moment.
