I would love to see San Diego & Green Bay make the playoffs (playoffs?), but I really don't think it's going to happen this year...:(

I wouldn't rule out San Diego. They are only 2 games behind a very weak division leader. Even KC is still technically alive at 1-10 in that division. Also Green Bay is only 1 game behind in another weak division with a tiebreaker over the other 2 right now.

You're right. I just think neither will pull it out with five weeks left. It's gut check time & I don't think they have the guts....:(

I might have to take New Orleans and Houston off the Toast List. They both still have a chance, especially New Orleans...:)

New York (Jets), Miami, New England, and Baltimore. Only two will make the playoffs (playoffs?) Which two will it be?...:right:

My guess is New York and New England...:)

I can't wait to see how the AFC East finishes up. Jets, Dolphins, and Patriots all at 8-5.

Never would have thought the Falcons and Dolphins would both be 8-5 after the year they had last year.

Houston is mathematically eliminated. New Orleans is last place in a division 2 games behind the leaders. One of the leaders will win tonight so they would be 3 games back with 3 to play. Unlikely. They are one game back of a wildcard with 4 teams between them and Dallas. You would have to break out the supercomputer and look at tiebreakers.

I think Indy and Baltimore will be the wildcards. One of the Jets, Miami and NE will make the playoffs as AFC east Champ.

Can someone explain to my why the NYG have clinched the division? Dallas could run the table and finish 11-5. This would involve a split in the season series with NYG and tied at 11-5 they would have identical division and conference record. Why is the division clinched?

They may not be going to the playoffs, but I've been very impressed with this team lately. Going into Green Bay in December and getting a win is not easy. Houston started off 0-4 and they've gone 6-3 since. They have the same record as Buffalo (6-7), who started the season 4-0.

I'm very encouraged about this team going into next season. Of course, I said that last year too after they finished 8-8. So who knows.

Blyons...next week's game versus Tennessee should be a good one.

I believe it's because New York beat Pittsburgh, so that's your tiebreaker.

Should be a good one. Tennessee still has homefield advantage to play for, so Tennessee will not lay down. Houston sure isn't gonna lay down either. Watch them turnovers though, Tennessee will kill you if you turn it over.
