The 2011 NFL Playoff Bracket is all set except for the NFC West winner. The Indianapolis Colts (10-6) defeated the Tennessee Titans on Sunday to win the AFC South, and the Green Bay Packers (10-6) won, 10-3, over the Chicago Bears. The only spot left open is for the NFC West winner, which comes down to the winner of Sunday night's Rams-Seahawks game. It's a winner-takes-all contest.
