NFL Playoff Possibilities

 

NFC East

1. The Winner of the Dallas-Washington game wins the division.  If the game ends in a tie, Washington wins the division.

 

2. Washington can earn a wildcard spot it they lose and then Minnesota and Chicago both lose.

 

3. Dallas cannot be a wildcard if they lose; they are out of the playoffs with a loss or tie.

 

4. The New York Giants have a slim Wildcard chance.  They must beat Philadelphia, and then Dalllas, Minnesota, and Chicago must all lose.

 

NFC North

1. Green Bay has won the division.  If the Packers beat Minnesota, they earn the number two seed and a bye.  They can still earn this if they lose while San Francisco and Seattle both lose.

 

2. Minnesota will earn a wildcard spot with a win over Green Bay.  If they lose, then the Vikings need Chicago, Dallas, and the Giants to all lose.

 

3. Chicago can earn a wildcard spot if they beat Detroit and Minnesota loses to Green Bay.

 

NFC South

1. Atlanta has secured the number one seed and a bye

 

NFC West

1. San Francisco will win the division with a win or tie against Arizona

 

2. The 49ers can clinch a bye with a win and a Packer loss to Minnesota

 

3. Seattle will win the division if the 49ers lose, and they beat St. Louis.  If Green Bay also loses, then Seattle could earn a first round bye as well.

 

A F C

All six playoff spots have been decided.  New England won the East, Baltimore won the North, Houston won the South, and Denver won the West.  Cincinnati and Indianapolis are the two wildcards.  Playoff seeding is still undecided.

 

1. Houston controls their own fate.  If they beat Indianapolis, they are the number one seed and earn a bye.  They can still earn the top seed if they lose while New England and Denver both lose.

 

2. If Houston loses, they can still earn a bye if either New England or Denver loses.

 

3. If Houston loses and both New England and Denver win, then the Texans must play in the Wildcard Round.

 

4. Denver has the next best chance of becoming the top seed.  If the Broncos win and the Texans lose, Denver is the top seed and earns a bye.

 

5. If Denver wins and Houston wins, the Broncos earn a first-round bye as the number two seed.

 

6. If Denver loses, they can still clinch the number two seed and a bye if New England loses.

 

7. If Denver loses and New England wins, the Broncos will play in the Wildcard Round.

 

8. New England can only earn the top seed if they beat Miami and both Denver and Houston lose.

 

9. New England will be the number two seed and earn a bye if they win and either Denver or Houston loses but not both.

 

10. Baltimore is the number four seed regardless of what happens this week.

 

11. Indianapolis is the number five seed regardless of what happens this week.

 

12. Cincinnati is the number six seed regardless of what happens this week.
