Here are the Week 9 the playoff seedings. Tiebreakers only done for the top 10 teams in each conference.
The bottom six for each conference is not in any order, other than record, then conference record. Doing detailed tie-breakers at this point in the season would be silly.

I have added how many games back the bottom 10 teams are from the last wild card slot.


AFC
1. Pittsburgh Steelers 7-1 (Beat NE head-to-head) AFC North Leader
2. New England Patriots 7-1 AFC East Leader
3. Denver Broncos 6-3 AFC West Leader
4. Jacksonville Jaguars 5-3 AFC South Leader
5. New York Jets 6-2 Wildcard
6. San Diego Chargers 6-3 Wildcard (Lost to Denver head-to-head)


7. Baltimore Ravens 5-3 (4-2 in AFC) (0.5 GB)
8. Indianapolis Colts 5-3 (3-3 in AFC) (0.5 GB)

9. Houston Texans 4-4 (4-2 in AFC) (1.5 GB)

10. Cleveland Browns 3-5 (2-2 in AFC) (2.5 GB)
11. Kansas City Chiefs 3-5 (2-3 in AFC) (2.5 GB)
12. Tennessee Titans 3-5 (2-4 in AFC) (2.5 GB)
13t. Buffalo Bills 3-5 (2-5 in AFC) (2.5 GB)
13t. Cincinnati Bengals 3-5 (2-5 in AFC) (2.5 GB)

15. Oakland Raiders 3-6 (1-5 in AFC) (3 GB)
16. Miami Dolphins 1-8 (5 GB with 6 to play)

Wildcard Weekend
#6 Chargers @ #3 Broncos
#5 Jets @ #4 Jags
Divisional games
#3 Broncos or Winner of Jets-Jags @ #2 Patriots
Winner of Jets-Jags or #6 Chargers @ #1 Steelers

NFC
1. Philadelphia Eagles 7-1 NFC East Leader
2. Atlanta Falcons 6-2 NFC South Leader
3. Seattle Seahawks 5-3 (5-2 in NFC) NFC West Leader
4. Minnesota Vikings 5-3 (3-2 in NFC) NFC North Leader
5. New York Giants 5-3 Wildcard
6. St. Louis Rams 4-4 (4-2 in NFC, No common games with Packers, 12-20 SoV) Wildcard


7. Green Bay Packers 4-4 (4-2 in NFC, No common games with Rams, 11-21 SoV) (0.5 GB due to Tie-breaker)
8. Detroit Lions 4-4 (3-4 in NFC) (0.5 GB due loss to Packers)

9. Dallas Cowboys 3-5 (2-3 in NFC, beat Was Head-to-head, unknown common games with TB & AZ) (1 GB)
10. Tampa Bay Buccaneers 3-5 (2-3 in NFC, beat NO Head-to-head, unknown common games with Dal & AZ) (1 GB)
11. Arizona Cardinals 3-5 (2-3 in NFC, unknown common games with Dal & TB) (1 GB)
12. Chicago Bears 3-5 (3-5 in NFC) (1 GB)
13. Washington Redskins 3-5 (3-3 in NFC, Lost to Dallas, Beat TB & Chi head-to-head) (1 GB)
14. New Orleans Saints 3-5 (2-4 in NFC, Lost to TB Head-to-head) (1 GB)

15. San Francisco 49ers 1-7, 1-6 in NFC (3 GB)
16. Carolina Panthers 1-7, 0-4 in NFC (3 GB)

Nit-picking, I think, but shouldn't the three-way tie among St. Louis, Detroit and Green Bay first be broken on Conference record (4-2, 3-4, 4-2), then whatever tiebreaker would take care of StL/GB?

First tie-breaker is always head to head.

The Rams have not played the Lions nor Packers.
The Lions beat the Packers, so the Pac are eliminated.

Tie-breaker #2 is best winning % in the conference.
The Rams 4-2 beats the Lions 3-4

EDIT - Yep, you were right, even after I said otherwise for a second time.

It doesn't seem like ti's gonna be one of those years where it comes down to five teams for one or two spots at the end of the season with a bunch of crazy tiebreakers. That's disappointing. Whatever happened to parity? Well, as long as the Ravens move up from number 7, I'll be a happy camper.

Plus according to NFL.com, when there are three teams tied and two of those teams share a division, you do the division tiebreaker to pare those teams down to one before you start breaking ties among teams who don't share the same division. In other words...

RANKING THE 9-14 NFC TEAMS:

DIVISION TIEBREAKERS
NFC EAST: Dallas > Washington (9/27 - DAL 21, WAS 18)
NFC SOUTH: Tampa Bay > New Orleans (10/10 - TB 20, NO 17)

SEEDS 9-12: Dallas, Tampa Bay, Chicago, Arizona
SEEDS 13-14: New Orleans, Washington

9. DALLAS (NFC win pct. = .400, Strength of victory = .417)
10. TAMPA BAY (NFC win pct. = .400, Strength of victory = .375)
11. ARIZONA (NFC win pct. = .400, Strength of victory = .360)
12. CHICAGO (NFC win pct. = .375)
------------------------------------------------------------
13. WASHINGTON (NFC win pct. = .500)
14. NEW ORLEANS (NFC win pct. = .333)

Well. I just fucked this one up. I was thinking of Chicago...

Well, it's now updated through MNF, and I added yours and JJD's corrections.

Also from ESPN.COM:
With the Dolphins off to the worst start in their 39-year history, Dave Wannstedt will resign Tuesday, the Miami Herald reported. Defensive coordinator Jim Bates is expected to be named interim head coach.

Since the Wannstedt resignation ended up here, there's also a mess of injuries from this week. Michael Strahan, Byron Leftwich, Chad Pennington will all be out for at least a few weeks, just to name a few off the top of my head. For the Browns, they loast OL Kelvin Garmon for the rest of the year (knee) and special teamer / backup DB Leigh Bodden for the rest of the year (torn pectoral muscle).
