We’re having a bit of an adjusted review and preview this week since we have important matters to discuss: the playoffs. The playoffs are upon us!!!
It’s so bittersweet.
There are teams that are definitely out, teams that are definitely in, and teams that have to jump through 150 hoops but still have a chance to get in. Let’s chat.
Teams that are OUT
Jets, Titans, Bills, Raiders, Jaguars, Browns, Texans
Lions, Rams, Giants, Vikings, Falcons, Bucs, Redskins
Teams that are IN
Broncos, Patriots, Bengals, Colts, Chiefs
Seahawks, Panthers, 49ers
So you’re sayin’ there’s a chance
Dolphins, Ravens, Chargers, Steelers
Eagles, Bears, Saints, Cardinals, Cowboys, Packers
It’s a “win and they’re in” situation for two of the NFC games – Cowboys vs. Eagles and Bears vs. Packers. For everyone else, the playoffs are a tangled web we weave. There are multiple scenarios in which the remaining on-the-fence teams could be in or out. I would spell them all out, but it turns my brain into spaghetti. So I’ll leave it to the pros: the NFL has the full list playoff scenarios that could result from this weekend’s outcomes.
One thing is for sure: it’s going to be a great weekend of football.
