Yes I know but the Packers could still miss the playoffs. It's a possibility.

True, too, because their record could eliminate them from the wildcard.

I will believe it from the Lions and Falcons when I see it....I cant remember the last time either of those teams have won a "big" game when they needed to outside of Ryan vs Seattle when the Seahawks were decimated by injuries for that game. Both teams look "soft" to me....The Lions better hope the last game of the season doesn't have meaning because if its for the division against GB, I could see like a 38-10 win for the Packers

This is going to be an interesting end of season for the NFC. Teams that are getting healthy, key players back, could be the difference maker. Teams with prior playoff experience, Giants for example, get dangerous.

Veteran players keep the rookies focused, Lions might have a tough time with the Giants. They can't count on come from behind wins all the time and Bears giving them trouble says something. Bears were without their WR Jeffer. He'll be back for the Packers!

I'll make this thread a *sticky* until the Super Bowl. This thread will apply for both the AFC and NFC.

The only scenario where KC can be number 1 seed is if NE loses 2 out of the last 3 games and KC wins all 3

Highly unlikely....Pats could definitely lose this weekend but they aren't losing to the dumpster fire that is the Jets and now that Tannehill is out I doubt they lose to Matt Moore....BB won't make the same mistake this year of letting up in the last game of the season and losing out on homefield advantage, cost them a SB last year

If they finish with the same record NE wins on tiebreaker for number 1 seed...

NE usually splits with MIA and NYJ. This NYJ team may be bad enough to be an aberration, but the NE game is their super bowl.

The game out in Denver is going to be very tough. Historically, New England is 7-8 in their last 15 games down in Miami. It's just been a tough place for them to play. Even with Tanehill presumably out I still would not consider that a definite win for the Patriots. I think they'll win at least 12 games.

KC does have Denver at home and then at San Diego. It's going to be a fun finish to the AFC West and the #1 seed in the AFC.

So you are saying after losing only 2 out of their first 13 games they are now going to lose 2 out of their last 3?

That isn't going to happen....
