The playoff race is heating up. With three weeks remaining on the schedule, the race towards Super Bowl LI is as tight as it’s been in years:

  1. Dallas Cowboys– The Cowboys had been the hottest team this season, even after a tough loss ending their eleven-game win streak you cannot fault the season they’ve had thus far. They will be the NFC’s number one seed.
  2. New England Patriots– After a strong showing on Monday Night against a formidable Ravens team, Tom Brady does his best work December-January. They have their eyes on that home field advantage.
  3. KC Chiefs– The Chiefs looked good against the Raiders and have a good shot at winning the AFC West. if they can get that number one seed Andy Reid’s squad could make a legit run to the Super Bowl.
  4. Detroit Lions– The Lions are quietly looking like the second best team in the NFC. Their offense has always been good and the defense is playing up to par.
  5.  NY Giants– New York somehow still have a chance at the NFC East crown. This Giants team is very dangerous and getting hot at the right time. If they make the post-season, they’ll be a tough out.
  6.  Oakland Raiders– The Raiders will be a playoff team. They may actually be a better road team anyway and still can score withy any team.
  7.  Atlanta Falcons– The Falcons defense has played great. They need to get healthy on offense and have a chance to win the NFC South and get a playoff home game.
  8. Pittsburgh Steelers– Big Ben and the Steelers have a great chance to clinch the division heading into the post season. The ability to give the ball to Bell and throw to AB make their offense virtually unstoppable.
  9. Tampa Bay Buccaneers– The Bucs have been great as of late. Over the past five weeks, their defense has been the best in the NFL and Winston has matured as a young QB.
  10. Denver Broncos– Denver cannot afford another loss. The running game has to make itself visible or they will miss the postseason. They have a tough three game schedule to finish the season.
