It will drop to Week 17 for a number of NFL organizations as only seven of the 14 match teams officially have post-season sidewalks.
Here’s a look at the NFL tipping point after Sunday night’s game where the Green Bay Packers won a dominant Week 16 victory over the Tennessee Titans. (Notably, this does not clearly reflect the “Monday Night Football” between the post-season eliminated New England Patriots and East Asian champions the Buffalo Bills.)
Asian Football Confederation:
(* Teams that won the final place)
1. Kansas City Presidents 1-14 *
2 – Pittsburgh Steelers 12-3 *
3- Buffalo Bills 11-3 *
4. Tennessee Titans 10-5
5. Miami Dolphin 10-5
6. Baltimore Ravens 10-5
7. Cleveland Browns 10-5
In the chase:
8. Indianapolis Colts 10-5
The Chiefs grabbed the AFC number one and thus the field advantage at home with their Week 16 win over the Atlanta Falcons. The Steelers cut a three-game losing streak and North Asia won by beating the Colts. Pittsburgh currently ranks second, but Bills’ victory over the Patriots on Monday would return Pittsburgh to third.
It’s a very close race after that with five teams sitting in 10-5. The Titans still held an advantage in South Asia over ponies. If the Titans defeated the Houston Texans in Week 17, Tennessee would win by division and thus finish fourth.
The dolphins were the big weekend winners. Miami entered Week 16 as the No. 7 seed (third place for the wild cards) and jumped to the No. 5 (first away card spot) after defeating the Las Vegas Riders and losing both Brown and Molts. The crows, who were out just last week, defeated the New York Giants and, like the dolphins, took advantage of the Browns and Colts’ losses, as they clinched a tie on both. Baltimore will earn the play-offs by beating Cincinnati in Week 17.
Brown’s loss of the aircraft was damaged, but it did not eject. Cleveland can clinch a tipping point by A) beating the Steelers, B) losing the Colts or C) if the Titans lose and Ravens, Colts and Dolphins win.
Indianapolis still has a chance to win post-season entry, but the colts don’t have a tie-breaker against Brown or Ravens. First, it would require a victory over Jacksonville Jaguars and then a loss of the Titans, Ravens, Browns or the Dolphins. The Colts could still win the South Asia title and finish fourth with a win and a loss to Tennessee.
1. Green Bay Packers 12-3 *
2. New Orleans Saints 4-11 *
3 – Seattle Seahawks 4-11 *
4. Washington Soccer Team 6-9
5. Tampa Bay Buccaneers 5-10 *
6. Los Angeles Rams 9-6
7. Chicago Bears 8-7
In the chase:
8. Arizona Cardinals 8-7
11. The Dallas Cowboys 6-9
13. New York Giants 5-10
Sheaves is one game closer to the top seed and thus has a home field advantage. Green Bay wasn’t able to fully claim it on Sunday as the Saints and Seahawks both won the Week 16 games as well. The Packers will take first place with their Week 17 victory over the Bears or Seahawks against the San Francisco 49th team.
The Team of the Saints led by Alvin Camara officially won the NFC South title by beating the Minnesota Vikings at Christmas while Seattle won the NFC West title with their Week 16 win over the Los Angeles Rams. New Orleans could win number one by defeating the Carolina Panthers and Packers by losing the Bears in Week 17. Seattle will have to conquer the 49 and both the Packers and the Saints lose Week 17 in order to win first place. One seed, which is completely improbable.
Tom Brady’s Buccaneers claimed First comma berth since 2007 After a one-sided victory over the Detroit Lions on Saturday. However, since Tampa Bay swept across New Orleans this season, they wouldn’t be able to win the division and so would be on the way to the first round playing NFC Champion East, as long as they defeated the Atlanta Falcons Week 17.
The other three teams – Washington, Los Angeles and Chicago – will be decided in Week 17. Washington leads the NFC East, but neither the Cowboys nor the Giants have been eliminated. If Washington beats Philadelphia Week 17, the soccer team is in the post-season. If Washington loses to Philadelphia, the Cowboys’ winner will enter the playoffs.
The Rams will need to win or lose the Bears to win the post-season pavement while the Bears will need to either beat the Packers or lose the Cardinal to the Rams to reach the playoffs. Arizona can still return to the tipping point with the win over Rams and Chicago’s loss to Green Bay.
Got all this?
