For only 7 of the 14 playoff teams that have officially won the playoff spots, many NFL-organized games will be reduced to week 17.
This is a picture of the NFL playoffs after the game on Sunday night. The Green Bay Packers won the Tennessee Giants in Week 16. (It is worth noting that this obviously does not reflect the “Monday Night Football” between the New England Patriots eliminated in the playoffs and the AFC Eastern Conference champion Buffalo Bills.)
(*The team that won the playoffs)
1. Kansas City Chiefs 14-1*
2. Pittsburgh Steelers 12-3*
3. Buffalo Act 11-3 *
4. Tennessee Giants 10-5
5.Miami Dolphins 10-5
6. Baltimore Ravens 1
7. Cleveland Browns 10-5
On the hunt:
8. Indianapolis Colts 10-5
The Chiefs won the AFC No. 1 seed in the 16th week of defeating the Atlanta Falcons and thus gained home court advantage. After defeating the Colts, the Steelers scored a three-game losing streak and won the AFC North Division Championship. Pittsburgh is currently ranked second, but Bill’s defeat of the Patriots on Monday will drop Pittsburgh to third.
The subsequent games were very fierce, with five teams ranking 10-5. The Titans still maintain the advantage in the Colts’ AFC South. If the Titans defeated the Houston Texans in Week 17, Tennessee would win the division and rank fourth.
The dolphin can be said to be the biggest winner of the weekend. Miami entered the 16th week as the No. 7 seed (the third wild card point), and after defeating the Las Vegas Raiders, the Browns and the Colts, it became the No. 5 seed (the first wild card). Card point). The Ravens, who had just arrived outside last week, won the victory for the New York Giants. Like the Dolphins, they benefited from the losses of the Browns and Colts because they both won the tiebreaker. Baltimore will win a playoff spot in the 17th week against Cincinnati.
The Browns lost to the Jets were injured, but they did not knock them down. Cleveland can get a spot in the playoffs by: A) defeating the Steelers, B) losing the Colts, or C) if the Titans lose and the Ravens, Colts and Dolphins all win.
Indianapolis still has a chance to make the playoffs, but the Colts have no decisive game against Brown or the Ravens. First, it will beat the Jacksonville Jaguars, then the Titans, Ravens, Browns or Dolphins. The Colts can still win the AFC Southern Championship and finish fourth with victory and Tennessee loss.
1. Green Bay Packers 12-3 *
2. New Orleans Saints 11-4 *
3. Seattle Seahawks 11-4*
4. Washington football team 6-9
5. Tampa Bay Pirates 10-5*
6. Los Angeles Rams 9-6
7. Chicago Bears 8-7
On the hunt:
8.Arizona Cardinals 8-7
11. Dallas Cowboys 6-9
13. New York Giants 5-10
The Packers are a game closer to the first seed, so they have home court advantage. The Saints and Seahawks also won their 16th week, so Green Bay could not fully claim himself on Sunday. The Packers will defeat the Bears or the Seahawks to win the San Francisco 49ers in Week 17.
The Saints, led by Alvin Kamara, officially won the NFC Southern Championship in their defeat of the Minnesota Vikings at Christmas, while Seattle won in the 16th week of defeating the Los Angeles Rams. Won the NFC Western Championship. New Orleans can defeat the Carolina Panthers and Packers in Week 17 and lose to the Bears to win the No. 1 seed. Seattle needs to beat the 49ers, and both the Packers and Saints must lose the game within Week 17 to get first. One seed is unlikely.
The Pirates of Tom Brady announced their first playoff spot since 2007 after beating the Detroit Lions in a single game on Saturday. However, because Tampa Bay was swept by New Orleans this season, they could not win the division championship, so as long as they beat the Atlanta Falcons on Week 17, they will be the NFC Eastern Conference champion in the first round.
The other three teams-Washington, Los Angeles and Chicago-will determine their fate. Week 17. Washington led the NFC East, but neither the Cowboys nor the Giants were eliminated. If Washington beat Philadelphia in Week 17, the football team will enter the playoffs. If Washington loses to Philadelphia, then the winner of the Giant Cowboys will enter the playoffs.
The Rams need to win or lose the Bears to get a playoff spot, and the Bears need to beat the Packers or the Cardinals to lose to the Rams to enter the playoffs. After defeating the Rams and Chicago and losing to the Green Bay, Arizona can still return to the playoffs.
