The Seattle Seahawks (7-3) beat the Arizona Cardinals on Thursday, boosting their chances of making the playoffs to 93 percent from 83 percent.

They are now in sole position of first place in the N.F.C. West. Given the expanded playoff picture this year, a playoff seed is more likely than not for the Seahawks, even if they finish the season 9-7, although everything is in the details.

The most important games for the Seahawks are their divisional ones. They have two remaining. If they win those, they can do no worse than 9-7, and that record is almost certain to give them a playoff berth — if the wins are against their divisional rivals, that is.

The No. 1 seed is not out of the question, but the Seahawks need the New Orleans Saints to start losing.
