Playoff Picture: Around the League


For the Bills, the playoffs is just a dream as it has been for the past 13 years.  Yes it can be frustrating and it is frustrating year after year to see a losing team and the best being a .500 record in some cases.  For other teams though there is still hope to make the playoffs.

For the AFC teams, the playoffs have been decided.  Everyone has clinched and is in there is no one else still in the hunt.  For the NFC however, today is a day that teams will be watching other games and hoping for some help.  The teams that still have wildcard shots are the Bears, Cowboys, VIkings and the Giants.

For the Bears 2 options are possible, the need a Win + a Minnesota Loss or tie.  The second is a Chi Tie and a Min loss.  For the Cowboys it is simple…WIN. With a win they will clinch the Cowboys will clinch the NFC East.  They play the Redskins this week.  For the Giants it is a little more complicated and there is only one scenario, the Giants must win and look for a Dallas loss or tie as well as a Chicago loss and a Minnesota Loss.  The VIkings are the final team that has a shot at the playoff berth.  They have three scenarios that they can move on with.  The first is a win from them.  The second is a Viking tie and a Chi loss or tie.  The third is a Dal loss or tie, NYG loss or tie, and a Chi loss
