NFL Week 16
The playoff seeds filled in a little better on Saturday. The Chargers saw their bid to make the playoffs get stuck in the mud in Kansas City, while the Redskins moved one step closer to a guaranteed wild card and the possibility of a divisional title.
#1--Indianapolis (locked in)
#2--Denver (locked in)
#3--Cincinnati (could drop to #4 with a loss at KC and two wins by New England)
#4--New England (cannot drop)
#5--Jacksonville (locked in)
#6--Pittsburgh (not locked in but would need to lose to Detroit at home and Kansas City to win at home against Cincinnati to miss the playoffs)
#1--Seattle (locked in)
#2--Chicago (not locked in, but need only a win in the next two games, against Green Bay or Minnesota in the final game)
It's still something of a jumble from here, with the Giants, Cowboys, Redskins, Bucs, Panthers and Vikings duking it out for the final four spots. Tampa Bay looks in the best spot, needing only to win at home against the New Orleans Saints, while Dallas and Minnesota need to win and get lots of help from other teams.
