Dallas (-3, 53.5) at Washington 1:00 PM EST on FOX
The Dallas Cowboys (7-7 SU, 8-6 ATS) will try to rebound from last Sunday’s disappointing loss against Green Bay as they take on the Washington Redskins (3–11 SU, 4–10 ATS). Dallas is fighting to stay in contention in the NFC East. They defeated the Redskins earlier in October 31–13.

Tampa Bay at St. Louis (-5.5, 43) 1:00 PM EST on FOX
The Tampa bay Buccaneers (4-10 SU, 6-8 ATS); winners of four of their last six games will travel St. Louis to take on the Rams. St. Louis (6-8 SU, 6-8 ATS) is coming off an upset win over New Orleans 27–16.

Cleveland at New York (A) (-2.5, 40.5) 1:00 PM EST on CBS
The Cleveland Browns (4–10 SU, 6–8–1 ATS), losers of five in a row will travel to MetLife stadium to take on the New York Jets. The Jets (6-8 SU, 8-6 ATS) were eliminated from playoff contention with a loss to Carolina last Sunday.

Indianapolis at Kansas City (-7, 44) 1:00 PM EST on CBS
The Indianapolis Colts (9-5 SU, 7-6-1 ATS) and Kansas City Chiefs (11–3 SU, 8–6 ATS) will both try to improve their playoff position when they meet in Arrowhead Stadium. The Kansas City offense has averaged just under 42 points per game and their last four outings.

Minnesota at Cincinnati (-7, 48) 1:00 PM EST on FOX
The Minnesota Vikings (4-9-1 SU, 8-6 ATS) haven’t played like a team that is been eliminated from the playoffs lately, that was shown in the 48–30 victory or Philadelphia last Sunday. They will travel to Cincinnati to take on the Bengals (9-5 SU, 8-5-1 ATS), who have a slim lead in the AFC North with Baltimore hot on their heels.

Denver (-10.5, 51.5) at Houston 1:00 PM EST on CBS
The Denver Broncos (11–3 SU, 8–6 ATS) will try to rebound from an upset loss against San Diego, and will look to keep their hold on the #1 seed in the AFC when they travel to Houston to take on the struggling Texans. The Texans (2–12 SU, 3–11 ATS) have lost 12 games in a row.

Tennessee (-5.5, 44) at Jacksonville 1:00 PM EST on CBS
The Tennessee Titans (5-9 SU, 6-5–3 ATS) will be looking for revenge as they travel to Jacksonville to take on the Jaguars. The Jaguars (4–10 SU, 5–9 ATS) upset Tennessee earlier this season 29–27.

Arizona at Seattle (-10.5, 44) 4:05 PM EST on FOX
The Arizona Cardinals (9-5 SU, 8-4-2 ATS) are one game out of the wild-card hunt and will look to pull off the upset when they travel to century link field to take on the Seattle Seahawks. Seattle (12-2 SU, 10-4 ATS) can clinch the NFC West and #1 seed with a victory.

New York (N) at Detroit (-9, 48.5) 4:05 PM EST on FOX
The Detroit Lions (7-7 SU, 6-8 ATS) will look to stay in contention in the NFC North when they host the New York Giants. The Giants (5–9 SU, 5–9 ATS) were eliminated from playoff contention two weeks ago. Detroit trails Chicago by one game and Green Bay by a half game in their division.

Pittsburgh at Green Bay (NL) 4:25 PM EST on CBS
The Pittsburgh Steelers (6-8 SU, 7-7 ATS) will look to keep their slim playoff hopes alive when they travel to Green Bay to take on the Packers. The Packers (7-6-1 SU, 5-9 ATS) are coming off a huge comeback victory, and may have Aaron Rodgers back at quarterback on Sunday. The Packers need to win out the rest of their games to win the NFC North.

Oakland at San Diego (-10, 50.5) 4:25 PM EST on CBS
The Oakland Raiders (4–10 SU, 8–6 ATS) will travel to San Diego to take on the Chargers in an AFC West tilt. The Raiders have been eliminated from playoff contention, however the Chargers (7-7 SU, 7-6-1 ATS) are still alive, but need some help from other teams.

New England at Baltimore (-2.5, 45) 4:25 PM EST on CBS
The New England Patriots (10–4 SU, 7-7 ATS) will look to clinch the AFC East when they travel to Baltimore to take on the Ravens. The Ravens (8-6 SU, 7-6-1 ATS) have won four games in a row and currently hold the #6 seed. Should Baltimore win out the rest of the way they can clinch the AFC North title. Baltimore has won the previous two meetings, including last season’s AFC championship game.

Chicago at Philadelphia (-3, 56) 8:30 PM EST on NBC
Two division leaders will meet on Sunday night as the Chicago Bears (8-6 SU, 4-8-2 ATS) take on the Philadelphia Eagles (8-6 SU, 7-6-1 ATS). Both teams hold slim leads in their respective divisions and need a win in order to hold their division leads.

2013 Week 16 Monday Night Football Game Line (12/23/2013)

Atlanta at San Francisco (-12, 45) 8:40 PM EST on ESPN
The Atlanta Falcons (4-10 SU, 5-9 ATS) will look to pull the upset as they take on the San Francisco 49ers. The 49ers (10–4 SU, 9–4-1 ATS) currently own the #6 seed in the playoffs, yet have the Arizona Cardinals hot on their heels for the final playoff spot. San Francisco will be traveling to Arizona next week, making this game all the more important.

A Full Listing Of the Week 16 NFL Odds Are Below

Russell Wilson SeahawksThere are just two weeks worth of games left on the NFL schedule, and that makes this week’s sets of NFL odds all the more important for the week to come. Join us for our quick discussion of the NFL Week 16 betting lines, and don’t miss all of the Week 16 odds that are at the bottom of this post.

There are a number of teams that are going to be playing for crucial playoff spots this week, and a lot of teams are playing those that are out of the race for the second season. As a result, there are a ton of games that are featuring just huge point spreads.

The biggest of the big pits the New England Patriots on the road against the Jacksonville Jaguars. There are nine games separating these two teams in the standings, and there are 14 points separating them on the NFL Week 16 odds with a game being played at EverBank Field. New England absolutely has to have these last two games if it wants any chance of getting a first round bye in the playoffs. The Jags probably need to lose these last two to have any chance to get the top pick in the NFL Draft.

The problem that the Pats have this week is that the two teams above them in the standings, the Houston Texans and Denver Broncos are huge favorites at home as well. The Broncos are hosting the Cleveland Browns and are favored by 13, while the Texans are laying 7.5 in the crucial game against the Minnesota Vikings, a game the Vikes have to have if they are going to stay on the right side of the playoff race in the NFC.

Meanwhile, over in the NFC, the Green Bay Packers can keep the pressure on by beating the Tennessee Titans this week as 12.5-point choices on the Week 16 betting lines. The other huge favorites this weeekend are the Carolina Panthers, who are -9 against the Oakland Raiders.

This week is also odd from the standpoint that there is no Monday Night Football game on Christmas Eve and no Thursday Night Football game either. There is though, a Saturday Night Football clash between the Atlanta Falcons and the Detroit Lions on ESPN. The Lions are coming off of the embarrassment of getting blown away by Arizona last weekend, and they are going to want to get back in the saddle against an Atlanta team that is still tenuously holding onto the top spot in the NFC playoffs. Atlanta can win the No. 1 seed and make sure that the road to the Super Bowl goes through the Georgia Dome with a victory, something that could be had as 3.5-point underdogs at Ford Field.

The only other division that still needs to be sorted out in the league is the NFC East. The Washington Redskins hold their own destiny right now, and they just need to win these final two games this year to lock up the division. They’re taking on the Philadelphia Eagles this weekend in the City of Brotherly Love, and they’re 5.5-point favorites to move within just one step. Meanwhile, both the Dallas Cowboys and New York Giants, who are both also at 8-6, are involved in very tough games this weekend. New York is on the road against the Baltimore Ravens, while the Cowboys are hosting the New Orleans Saints. Both teams are favored by 2.5-points.

Those Ravens have their work cut out for them if they plan on winning the AFC North. They are still in control of the division at the moment, but if they lose this one against the Giants, they’re going to probably be forced into a do-or-die game next week for at least the division, and maybe the playoffs all together against the Cincinnati Bengals. The Bengals meanwhile, can clinch a playoff spot if they can beat the Pittsburgh Steelers on the road this week. It’s a do or die game for the Steelers, who have to win at least this game, and likely the game next week against the Browns to get into the playoffs. They can still win the AFC North though, and that would go a long way towards getting back to the Super Bowl. The Steelers are -4 at Heinz Field, but a lot of betting in this game has actually gone on the Bengals, who have lost five in a row in this series.

The big game of the weekend is Sunday Night Football, though. The Seattle Seahawks are going to host the San Francisco 49ers. The 49ers will lock up the NFC West with a win, and they might ultimately clinch no worse than the No. 2 seed as well with some help. In all likelihood though, San Francisco is in some trouble if this game is lost. It will still control of its own destiny to win the division, and it likely won’t in Week 17 to get the No. 2 seed in the NFC. Seattle meanwhile, is just trying to get into the playoffs, and it will get in with a win and a heck of a lot of help. The easiest thing for the Seahawks to do is win twice to end the regular season, as if they don’t, they are leaving themselves open to be left out of the second season. After watching the Niners go to New England last week and win, the oddsmakers have lined them at a pick ’em at CenturyLink Field.

There are a few other games that we have yet to discuss that we are going to quickly gloss over. The Chicago Bears are laying five to the Arizona Cardinals on the road in a game that they have to win if they have any playoff aspirations left. The Miami Dolphins, who are technically still alive in the playoff race, are -4.5 against the Buffalo Bills at home. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are giving a field goal to the St. Louis Rams in a battle of two teams that have overachieved this year and have a lot to look forward to in the future. The Indianapolis Colts will clinch a playoff berth if they can beat the Kansas City Chiefs as 6.5-point favorites at Arrowhead Stadium, while another of the lousy teams in the AFC West, the San Diego Chargers, are +2.5 on the road against the New York Jets, who will be giving QB Greg McElroy his first career start.

In terms of ‘totals’, they are starting to trickle down just a bit this week as the weather gets colder. The only two games in the 50s, the New Orleans/Dallas game and the Atlanta/Detroit game are both played in domes. Both games feature numbers posted at 51. Chicago and Arizona have two of the best defenses in the game, but most importantly, they both have anemic offenses. That’s why that game is the lowest number on the board of the week at 36.5. The Seattle/San Fran game also only features a ‘total’ of 39, the second lowest ‘total’ of the week. Those two teams played a brutal 13-6 game when these two met two months ago, but Seattle has scored 108 points in the last two weeks, while the 49ers have scored 68 points in those same two weeks.

Week 16 of the 2010 NFL campaign is going to get underway this weekend and the . Below you will find the current list of 2010 Week 16 NFL lines and spreads along with a breakdown of the Week 16 NFL odds. Be sure to check out the free NFL picks from the expert handicappers at Bankroll Sports this weekend…

The playoff races can really get sorted out once and for all in Week 16, as virtually every single spot in the postseason can be clinched this week with the right results, while other teams are just narrowly hanging on for dear life for that last slender shot at capturing the Lombardi Trophy.

The weekend is going to kick off on Thursday night, as the Pittsburgh Steelers can help make the race in the AFC North a heck of a lot less interesting if they can beat the Carolina Panthers. Carolina showed its pulse last week by beating the Arizona Cardinals at home, but this is obviously a totally different situation, especially with the men in black and gold coming off of their loss to the New York Jets in Week 15. You’ll want to make sure you keep track of our NFL picks in this one, as Pittsburgh is being asked to lay a hefty 13.5 points. A win parlayed with a Baltimore Ravens loss wins the AFC North and clinches a first round bye in the playoffs in the AFC.

The New England Patriots are just one win away from snaring the No. 1 seed in the playoffs as well. The pressure is really off of QB Tom Brady and company in this one, as there are two chances to get the job done. You can bet that the Bills, who have been playing tough ball of late, are going to want to continue their streak of games having stuck within at least three points. New England is favored by 8.5 points on the NFL betting lines, though.

One of the most interesting games of the second to last Sunday of the regular season happens at the Edward Jones Dome, where the St. Louis Rams and San Francisco 49ers meet up. The Rams probably need to win both of their final two games to get into the playoffs this season, which would complete a remarkable turnaround from a season in which they went just 1-15. St. Louis might only be 6-8 this year, but it can ensure that next week’s game becomes a de facto NFC West title game against the Seattle Seahawks by putting San Fran out of its misery once and for all. Somehow, the 49ers just continue to stick around in this division race, and two wins will most likely win the division at 7-9. In this one though, they are 2.5 point underdogs.

The Tennessee Titans and Kansas City Chiefs put their playoff hopes on the line at Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday as well. The Titans need two wins paired with two losses by both the Jacksonville Jaguars and Indianapolis Colts to get into the playoffs, something that is going to be very difficult, yet at least potentially reasonable. KC wins the AFC West with a win and a loss by the San Diego Chargers in Week 16. Even though they are 6-0 at home this year, the Chiefs feel like they are getting disrespected on the opening Week 16 lines in this one, as they are favored by just five points over a team that is most likely finishing below .500.

As for the Colts as Jags, they’re both favored in their week 16 games. Jacksonville should have a significantly easier time against the Washington Redskins, where it is favored by 6.5 points, than Indy will against the Oakland Raiders, where it is a field goal choice of the oddsmakers. Indianapolis needs a combination of two wins or two Jacksonville losses to get into the playoffs by winning the AFC South.

Though the contest probably means very little, the Atlanta Falcons and New Orleans Saints will meet on Monday Night Football, the final one of the 2010 campaign. Atlanta wins the NFC South and the No. 1 seed in the playoffs with a win, but the exact same thing will be accomplished with a win next week against the Carolina Panthers at home. New Orleans can clinch a playoff berth with a win as well on Monday, though that spot might already be clinched with some help prior to this kickoff. The Falcons won the battle between these two teams at the Superdome in OT earlier this year, and they are 2.5 point favorites to pick up the season sweep on MNF.

Note: Below this post, there is a complete listing of all the NFL week 16 lines (sides & totals) from BetUS Sportsbook (100% signup bonus when you click here) if you would like to skip our weekly NFL lines breakdown.

Last week in the NFL, scoring returned in a big way. After a couple weeks of really low scoring, there were a ton of points score in week 15. In fact, six different games had more than 50 points scored while 3 of those contests combined for more than 65 total point a piece. As a result, the over totals held an 8-6 advantage over the under totals this past weekend. However, heading into week 16 there is not a single game with a total over 49 which should be something to keep an eye on if scoring surges again. Another popular trend last week was the number of impressive road performances. The road teams were 8-5 SU last week. As a whole, road teams were 8-4-1 ATS against the home field advantage. It was also the first week in the month of December where the favored teams did not hold the advantage over the underdogs. The underdogs were also 8-4-1 ATS and road underdogs were even more impressive going 6-2 ATS. In fact, road underdogs are the big trend when looking at the week 16 NFL lines. Road teams will be underdogs in 14 of 16 contests this weekend. The only games that will feature away teams that are favored will be Sunday and Monday night featured NFC battles. However, the more important factor that will continue to shape out this week will be the postseason race. The NFC picture is becoming clearer, but the AFC race is still wide open with 6 different teams at 7-7 trying to fight their way into a wildcard spot. Check out all of those important playoff games with their respected betting lines below as we continue to approach the end of the NFL regular season.

Last week a lot of NFL team’s postseason chances came to an end primarily in the NFC. However, the AFC wildcard race is still completely up for grabs with a host of teams lingering at the 7-7 mark on the season. Among those teams are the defending Super Bowl Champions in the Pittsburgh Steelers who kept their chances alive with a Ben Roethlisberger game winning touchdown pass as time expired in a big victory against the Green Bay Packers. However, the odds may be stacked against the Steelers to find a position in the playoffs. Find out the Steelers chances to make the playoffs along with all the other teams in the NFL as we continue to breakdown the postseason playoff picture.

NFC East

Philadelphia Eagles (10-4) – Philadelphia clinched a playoff berth with their 27-13 win over the 49ers this weekend. However, the Eagles can still do more damage. They currently sit a top the NFC East and could clinch the division with another win combined with a Dallas loss. The Eagles could also lose to the Broncos this week and still win the division with a victory against Dallas in the finale. Also, the Eagles could still get a first round bye in the playoffs with another Vikings loss as long as they continue to win.

Dallas Cowboys (9-5) – The Cowboys stunned the football world with a big victory over the previously unbeaten Saints last weekend. The milestone victory ended at ever going talk of the December slump and kept the Cowboys in the wildcard position for the playoffs. Dallas is currently in a race with the Giants for the final wildcard spot. The Giants would win the tie breaker due to the head to head sweep, but the Giants trial by one game currently. Dallas also has the same record as Green Bay meaning they could also guarantee a spot in the playoffs with one more victory if the Packers lost their remaining two. However, all those scenarios are given if the Cowboys lose another game but they still control their destiny if they continue to win. Also, if the Cowboys get by Washington this weekend they will have the chance to take down the division against the Eagles in week 17.

New York Giants (8-6) – The Giants just crushed Washington this past Monday 45-12 in an all around impressive effort. The Giants would currently be out of the playoffs if the season ended today, but they are also the only team still alive outside of the 6 teams that are currently in the playoffs. The Giants could close the door with another Dallas loss if they were to win out. Also, if the Packers lose their last two games the Giants could earn a spot with two more victories. If the Giants just split the last two games, they would need Dallas to lose both games.

Washington Redskins (4-10) – Out

NFC North

Minnesota Vikings (11-3) – Clinched Division

The Vikings loss to the Panthers opened the door for the Eagles to have a chance at taking their first round bye. Minnesota would lose the tie breaker for 2nd best record in the NFL with another loss (given the Eagles win) due to their conference record.

Green Bay Packers (9-5) – The Packers last second loss to the Steelers this week was a setback in regards to the postseason. However, the Packers still have a good chance to lock in a spot with just one more victory due to their head to head victory over Dallas and two game advantage over the Giants. However, if they lost their remaining two games they would need Dallas or New York to at least lose one game.

Chicago Bears (5-9) – Out

Detroit Lions (2-12) – Out

NFC South

New Orleans Saints (13-1) – Clinched Division and first round bye.  New Orleans pursuit of a perfect season ended last week to the Cowboys. However, they are still poised for a deep playoff run and another victory would wrap up home field advantage throughout the playoffs.

Atlanta Falcons (7-7) – Out

Carolina Panthers (6-8) – Out

Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2-12) – Out

NFC West

Arizona Cardinals (9-5) – Clinched Division

San Francisco 49ers (6-8) – Out

Seattle Seahawks (5-9) – Out

St. Louis Rams (1-13) – Out

AFC East

New England Patriots (9-5) – The Patriots definitely have not been the dominating New England team we are accustomed to this time a year. However, last week’s 17-10 victory over Buffalo puts the Patriots just one victory away from clinching the division. The Patriots could also clinch the division guaranteeing a postseason berth with another Miami loss.

Miami Dolphins (7-7) – The Dolphins are just one of six teams currently sitting at 7-7. The Dolphins could still advance if a few scenarios play out. One of course would be if the Patriots lost their last two and the Dolphins win out to steal the division title. For Miami to capture a wildcard spot, they would need either Denver and/or Baltimore to lose their final two games while winning their last two games.

New York Jets (7-7) – The Jets are also at the 7-7 mark on the season after a 10-7 loss to the Falcons last week. The Jets can not win the division so their only option is to somehow win a wildcard position. The Jets absolutely have to win their remaining two games and hope for the following: Jacksonville loses to New England and Miami loses to Houston, plus either of the following: have Baltimore lose at Pittsburgh or Denver lose at Philadelphia.

Buffalo Bills (5-9) – Out

AFC North

Cincinnati Bengals (9-4) – The Bengals dropped their 2nd straight game last week in an emotional 27-24 loss to the Chargers keeping the door open in the division race. Cincinnati still needs one more victory to clinch the AFC North or a Baltimore loss.

Baltimore Ravens (8-6) – The Ravens blew out Chicago last week 31-7 to strengthen their playoff chances. Baltimore is also still alive in the division, but would need the Bengals to lose their remaining two games to reach that goal. The Ravens could clinch a playoff berth with a win this week with the following scenarios playing out: Jacksonville loss along with Jets or Broncos loss. Ravens could also earn a spot with losses by Jets, Broncos, and Dolphins this week as well.

Pittsburgh Steelers (7-7) – The Steelers kept their postseason chances alive last week with a clutch victory against the Packers. Pittsburgh still has an uphill battle to climb given their 4-6 conference record. There are tons of scenarios that could play out. One interesting scenarios would be if the Steelers win out they would need Houston, Jacksonville, Denver, and New York to lose at least one game. (All of those teams are underdogs for week 16) Of course there are many other scenarios given all the teams fighting for wildcard spot, but one thing is certain that is the Steelers must win.

Cleveland Browns (3-11) – Out

AFC South

Indianapolis Colts (13-0) – Clinched Division and home field advantage throughout.

Jacksonville Jaguars (7-7) – The Jaguars played really well against the Colts last week nearly ending their undefeated season. However, the loss put them right in the middle of a pack of 7-7 teams. Still, the Jaguars chances are pretty good or at least better than other teams with the same record. The Jaguars control their own destiny with another Denver or Baltimore loss.

Tennessee Titans (7-7) – The Titans kept their slim postseason chances alive with a 27-24 victory over Miami last Sunday. Tennessee must win their final two games of the season and get a lot of help. The Titans need both Denver and Baltimore to lose their final two games. Also, Tennessee would nearly need to finish ahead of all the current teams at 7-7 given they have the worse conference record of every team except Houston.

Houston Texans (7-7) – The Texans are also still alive for just one more week, but they need more help than anyone. Houston needs Denver and Baltimore to lose out. The Texans will also need the Jets to possibly lose out along with losses from both Pittsburgh and Jacksonville. All of those scenarios have to play out and the Texans must win their final two just to be eligible of a few of the tie breaker scenarios.

AFC West

San Diego Chargers (11-3) – Clinched Division

The Chargers may just be the hottest team in the AFC even with the Colts still undefeated. San Diego’s winning streak in December is now 17 straight games and they have also posted 9 straight wins currently. The Chargers are already in the postseason, but need just one more victory to capture a first round bye and home field advantage in their first playoff game.

Denver Broncos (8-6) – Denver’s postseason chances took a big hit with an unexpected loss to Oakland last week. The Broncos still currently own the final wildcard position and control their own destiny. However, they would lose tie breakers to Baltimore, Jacksonville, and Pittsburgh in the wildcard race meaning another loss would really devastate their chances. If the Broncos had to take a loss, they can not afford to lose to the Chiefs in the finale considering that would really damage their conference record. A win over Kansas City would increase their chances at 9-7, but there are too many scenarios that could play out if that happens. The main thing for Denver is to approach each game as a “must win.”

Oakland Raiders (5-9) – Out

Kansas City Chiefs (3-11) – Out

NFL Week 15 review and playoff outlook…

December 15th, 2008 by Travis Edwards (Bankroll Sports Contributor) | Posted in NFL Football   Comments Off on NFL Week 15 review and playoff outlook…

With only two weeks to go in the regular football season there are still a bunch of teams battling for playoff positions and games to watch going into week 16 in the NFL. Looking back it was definitely a wild week in professional football with a number of huge plays and unlikely winners. The Dallas Cowboys had a full week of controversy surrounding their offensive standouts. Star wide receiver Terrell Owens accused QB Tony Romo of throwing the ball to tight end Jason Witten too often and it lead to a media field day. However, the Cowboys dominated the New York Giants Sunday night to win 20-8. The Giants were a team many thought clearly to be the best in the NFC. The win put the Cowboys who seemed like a long shot for the playoffs back in the captain’s seat for a wildcard spot. The Giants on the other hand dropped two in a row and now will play in a huge game next week against the Carolina Panthers to determine who has home field advantage throughout the playoffs.

The Carolina Panthers on the other hand continue to prove why many are considering them favorites to represent the NFC in the Super Bowl. The Panthers trampled the Broncos 30-10 and improved their home record this season to 8-0. A win next week would make the Panthers very difficult to beat considering they would get the rest of their games at Bank of America Stadium. The Chicago Bears and the Minnesota Vikings both got wins in their quest to win the NFC North. Both teams records are likely not good enough to earn a wildcard position and they are battling it out to try and win the division. The Vikings need one more win to clinch the division, but they will take on two of the better teams in the NFC in the New York Giants and the Atlanta Falcons. The Bears must run the table against the Packers and Texans because a single loss would end their postseason hopes.

The Washington Redskins troubles continued as they fell victim to the Cincinnati Bengals 20-13. The Redskins have just been torn apart in recent weeks losing 5 of their last 6 games. Sunday’s loss to the Bengals officially eliminated Washington from the playoff picture. The Philadelphia Eagles are set to collide with the Cleveland Browns primetime on Monday night. The Eagles still have an outside shot at making the playoffs and must win their last 3 games. A single loss will eliminate the Eagles from contention. The Eagles have been playing well and if they could pull of the 3 wins, they still could quite possibly need some help to still make the playoffs. However, with absolutely nothing to lose you can expect Philadelphia to keep up their stellar of recent weeks.

One of the more anticipated match-ups heading into last week showcased the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Atlanta Falcons. The Falcons desperately needed a win and that is exactly what they got as they edged the Bucs out by a field goal in overtime 13-10. Both teams now stand at a season record of 9-5 with the Cowboys. The Buccaneers hold the tie-breaker over the Falcons, but with two games to go anything can happen. Especially considering how well the Falcons are playing and the Buccaneers have now lost two straight. The Falcons really need to win their last two games because one loss simply does not look like it will get the job done. The Arizona Cardinals have already clinched the NFC West, but have now lost 3 of their last 4 games including a blowout loss to the Vikings Sunday 35-14. The Cardinals must get the offense back to playing as they did early in the season. The Cardinals looked like a team that could possibly surprise a few teams a few weeks ago and now look like they could be a cake walk in the first round.

In the AFC, the Baltimore Ravens and the Pittsburgh Steelers held a classic grudge match between their two stellar defenses. The Ravens lead nearly the entire game, but the Steelers would stage a comeback in the 4th quarter for the 2nd time in two weeks to clinch the AFC North. Pittsburgh now has the opportunity in a big game against the Tennessee Titans this week to earn the chance at home field advantage throughout the playoffs. The Titans and the Steelers both have already earned first round byes, but are now fighting for the home field and whoever wins this weekend will claim the home turf. On the other hand, the Ravens are now in a 4 way tie for the final wildcard spot and cannot afford a single loss. The AFC is as tough this year as it has been in the last decade and if a quality caliber team like the Ravens misses the playoffs this season that will say a lot for how strong the AFC has played this season.

The Indianapolis Colts held off a valiant effort from the winless Detroit Lions this week to win 31-21. The Colts now have a record of 10-4 and are one win away from clinching a wildcard position because they would win all tie-breakers due to the fact they only have two losses in the AFC. The AFC East division is wild horse race with 3 teams tied at 9-5 including the New York Jets, Miami Dolphins, and New England Patriots. The Jets hold the tie-breaker as of now, but every team will need to win out. New York received a gift on one of the wildest plays of the weekend. Down by 3 points to the Bills with under 2 ½ minutes to go in the game, QB J.P Losman fumbled the football that led to a Jets recovery for a touchdown. The play was huge in keeping the Jets in playoff contention and an absolute nightmare for the Bills. Buffalo should have been running the ball, but tried to get fancy and it cost them big time. That single play had huge consequences for a number of team’s playoff chances and hopes.

The Miami Dolphins and New England Patriots both picked up wins this weekend keeping pace with the New York Jets. The Patriots may have a slight advantage considering Miami and New York will meet in the last game of the season. The Patriots blew out the Raiders 49-26 and will get two struggling teams in Arizona and Buffalo to close out the season. Miami held on to a defensive battle to beat the 49ers 14-9 as well Sunday. The Dolphins victory kept things on the right path and they will need two more wins for a chance at the playoffs. Baltimore, Miami, New England, and New York all stand at the 9-5 mark and one loss would be devastating for any of those teams. The Ravens have perhaps been the strongest of the 4 this season, but they will take on the Dallas Cowboys in what appears to be a tough game next week. Week 16 in the NFL season promises to be as exciting as this past week as these playoff contenders leave everything on the field in their quest to make the postseason.
