NFL Week 16
Current Playoff Picture:
Projected Playoffs at end of season:
Once again, the 2, 3, and 4 seeds in the NFC are interchangeable. In the AFC, it doesn't really matter who gets the 6 seed, and Oakland and KC are competing for the 2 seed. Baltimore could potentially take the 3 seed from Pittsburgh but I doubt it.
Now we only have 2 weeks left, and there are no more "alternate" roads for some of the teams. Some of the games MUST go a certain way. These last 2 weeks are a prime opportunity to hit some big parlays.
Let's look at the schedule of the playoff contenders:
@ Oakland - W
vs Jacksonville - W
Indianapolis must win both of these games to make it to the playoffs.
vs Indianapolis - L
vs San Diego
Oakland must lose to Indianapolis. The SD game is irrelevant except for the Raiders playoff seeding.
vs Cincinnati - L
@ Tennessee - L
Houston must lose BOTH of these games for Indianapolis to make the playoffs. They just benched their starting QB so that will be the excuse for the collapse.
@ Jacksonville - L
vs Houston - W
Tennessee must lose to Jacksonville and beat Houston for Indianapolis to make the playoffs. Tennessee still has a small chance for the #6 wild card slot.
Kansas City (10-4)
@ San Diego
These games are irrelevant except for Kansas City's playoff seeding.
@ Kansas City
These games are irrelevant except for Denver trying to get the #6 wild card. They are not playing well lately, and most of that blame is on the offense.
Pittsburgh should have an easy win against Cleveland, and beating Baltimore would put the Ravens playoff hopes in bad shape.
These games are irrelevant except for Baltimore trying to get the #6 seed.
@ Green Bay - W
vs Chicago - W
Minnesota MUST win both of these games to make the playoffs as the #6 seed.
Tampa Bay (8-6):
@ New Orleans - L
vs Carolina - L
Tampa Bay MUST lose both of these games for Minnesota to make the playoffs.
vs New York Giants
Washington must lose at least 1 of these games for the Vikings to make the playoffs. I'm not sure which one they will lose. It is likely they beat the Bears to setup a more meaningful game against the Giants for drama, but it would be nice if they just lose to Chicago.
New York Giants (10-4):
New York is locked into the 5 seed and I wouldn't be surprised if they win both of these games. Either way it doesn't matter much.
@ Green Bay
Detroit must win 1 more game to capture the NFC North title. I suspect they will lose to Dallas to have them playing Green Bay for the division in Week 17. Detroit must win the division for Minnesota to make the playoffs. If they lose to Dallas they should be sure to beat Green Bay the next week.
Dallas has essentially locked up the 1 seed (Giants could still get it technically), but I think the Cowboys are safe to be #1. This will set them up to get upset in the playoffs.
vs New Orleans
Atlanta will either be the #3 or #4 seed.
@ San Francisco
Seattle will likely be the #2 seed. It is unlikely they lose to either of these teams.
Top Picks (5):
Indianapolis over Oakland, Jacksonville over Tennessee, Cincinnati over Houston
These 3 MUST happen for Indianapolis to make the playoffs.
Minnesota over Green Bay, New Orleans over Tampa Bay
These 2 MUST happen for Minnesota to make the playoffs as the #6 seed.
Likely to happen:
New England over New York Jets, San Diego over Cleveland, Seattle over Arizona, New York Giants over Philadelphia
