Well, since it's the last week, you can get this at NFL.com, but here's the scenarios. This is my own figuring, and any mistakes are entirely my own.

Washington controls their own destiny, and are in the playoffs with a win or losses by Minnesota and New Orleans. Their game is against Dallas, but Dallas has clinched the #1 seed, so who knows how hard they'll be trying.
Minnesota is in the playoffs with a win and a Washington loss.
New Orleans is in the playoffs with a win, a Minnesota loss, and a Washington loss.

In Tennessee vs. Cleveland, there's this weird situation where the team that wins the tiebreaker is dependent on whether they're tied at 9-7 or at 10-6. If they finish at 10-6, then they're tied at 7-5 in conference, and Tennessee takes it by virtue of their 4-1 record in common games (Cleveland was 3-2 vs the Jets, Bengals, Texans, and Raiders, the common teams in question). If they both finish 9-7, then Cleveland gets the tiebreaker with their 7-5 conference record (Tennessee would have a 6-6 conference record in this case).
So it's Tennessee who controls their own destiny, needing a win to take the last playoff spot. If they lose, however, then Cleveland takes the spot. Baring a tie, Cleveland's last game against San Francisco is irrelevant.

CURRENT 1ST ROUND DRAFT ORDER (as always, remember that the order for playoff teams can and will change depending on how they do in the post-season, In fact, this exact order is impossible as the NFC Super Bowl representative will be either #31 or #32. This number may differ from some sources, as it includes all 16 games. Some sources only count SOS for games that have already been played.)
#1: Miami (1-14)
#2: St. Louis (3-12, 123 SOS)
#3: New York Jets (3-12, 126 SOS)
#4: Atlanta (3-12, 127 SOS)
#5: Kansas City (4-11, 122 SOS)
#6: Oakland (4-11, 123 SOS)
#7: Baltimore (4-11, 124 SOS)
#8: San Francisco (5-10) New England
#9: Cincinnati (6-9, 110 SOS)
#10: Denver (6-9, 126 SOS)
#11: Carolina (6-9, 128 SOS)
#12: Chicago (6-9, 133 SOS)
#13: Arizona (7-8, 105 SOS)
#14: New Orleans (7-8, 114 SOS)
#15: Buffalo (7-8, 122 SOS)
#16: Houston (7-8, 125 SOS)
#17: Detroit (7-8, 130 SOS)
#18: Philadelphia (7-8, 138 SOS)

Well, you already mentioned the Cards and the Bears. There's also Minnesota, who will be fresh off ending the Favre experiment for good. I remember McNabb being on the table for the Vikes a few years ago before Chilly made the drive to the airport.
