The New Orleans Saints handled their business on Sunday dismantling the Carolina Panthers 42-10 but couldn't get any help from other playoff teams.

The Detroit Lions choked their game away against the Green Bay Packers as Aaron Rodgers erased a 14-point halftime deficit so the one seed was out of reach.

Next, a first-round bye evaporated as Russell Wilson couldn't complete the Seattle comeback and the 49ers defeated the Seahawks 26-21.

Therefore, New Orleans settles on the #3 seed in the NFC Playoffs.

The Saints will face the 6 seeded Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, January 5th at 12:05 p.m. at home in the Super Dome.

Here's how the remaining match-ups shake out.
