Richard Sherman isn't universally loved, especially after his now-infamous postgame tirade against Michael Crabtree and the San Francisco 49ers. But that doesn't mean he's without his fans; quite the opposite, in fact, as the Seattle Seahawks cornerback ranked 10th on the NFL's list of most-bought jerseys. Two of Sherman's teammates, Russell Wilson (second) and Marshawn Lynch (sixth) also made the list. No. 1? Their opponent's quarterback in Super Bowl XLVIII, Peyton Manning.

Who wins NFC East? NFC North?

It's all down to the final Sunday for the NFC East and NFC North. But more than that, the losers of these two big games -- Philadelphia Eagles at Dallas Cowboys and Green Bay Packers at Chicago Bears -- will see their seasons end. As if that's not enough, major quarterback intrigue surrounds the matchups; the Cowboys are waiting to see if Tony Romo will be healthy enough to play while the Packers on Thursday announced Aaron Rodgers will return. How will it all play out?

NFL Week 15 -- Packers at Cowboys

The fight for the playoffs continues in the Northeast quadrant of the NFC, with the Green Bay Packers and Dallas Cowboys both looking up at their respective division rivals. This means Sunday's game between the two feels almost like a playoff contest. Adding to the intrigue: questions surrounding Aaron Rodgers' return; he experienced pain in his most recent practice session, making Matt Flynn the likely starter Sunday. Which team will keep a division title in sight?

NFC North outlook still muddy

What an odd week for the NFC North. Perhaps the NFL's most competitive division title race stayed that way, but not thanks to great play from any of its contenders. The first-place Detroit Lions lost a turnover-riddled game at home to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers -- they of zero wins three weeks ago. The Chicago Bears lost 42-21 at the previously 4-6 St. Louis Rams. And the Aaron Rodgers-less Green Bay Packers? They replaced struggling quarterback Scott Tolzien with Matt Flynn ... then proceeded to force a tie with the Minnesota Vikings. That leaves the first two at 6-5 and the last at 5-5-1. How will the rest of the season play out?
