Carolina and possibly the Pats. Indy and Seattle look pretty safe to me.
How does Seattle look "safe"? While I think that they are a decent team, I don't think they are as good as their record.They played 4 games against playoff bound teams. They lost to Washington and Jacksonville. They beat the Giants by 3 in OT and beat the Colts in week 16 at home when Dungy wasn't even there to coach, Manning threw 19 less passes than Sorgi, Harrison didn't play and Wayne had 2 of the team's 31 receptions. Seattle, however, played their starters the entire game.

So basically Seattle played only 3 real games against playoff teams and lost 2 of them and only won the Giants game because Jay Feely missed 3 game winning FGs, one at the end of regulation and 2 in OT. That means that if Jay Feely doesn't have his worst game of the year (all other games he missed 0 or 1 FG), the Seahawks are 0-3 in real games against playoff teams.

Seattle also didn't beat a team with a winning record by more than 3 points, aside from the game against Indy's backups when Seattle played all of their starters. They played 10 of 16 games against teams with 6-10 or worse records. 5 of the 10 games were against teams that were 4-12 or worse.

The Seahawks may be the favorites in the NFC, but that is solely because of the bye and the home field.

Thats my opinion as well. I can see the Skins and Steelers keeping it close, particularly the Steelers. But I'd expect a Seahawk blowout win as slightly more probable than a close game.

See my post above as to why that is more improbable than probable. While it may happen, the Seahawks needed 3 missed game winning FGs to beat the only fully manned playoff team that they did beat and the best winning margin against a team with a .500 or better winning percentage was 3 points (taking out the Indy game).That and the fact that Washington already beat them, I would say that this will be a close game and that it could go either way. It wouldn't surprise me at all if 1 or 2 big plays/turnovers decides the game.
