This week in: American Football – Week 15

With just three weeks remaining in the regular season, the playoff picture is starting to become clearer in the NFL.  This is how things stand:

NFC

In: Packers, 49ers

Almost in: Saints

Fighting for the East: Cowboys/Giants

Wild Card:  Two from Falcons/Lions/Bears/Team that does not win the East

AFC

In: Texans

Almost in: Patriots, Ravens/Steelers (one as Wild Card)

Fighting for the West: Denver Tebows/Raiders

Wild Card: One from Jets/Titans/Bengals

This weekend should go someway to settling some of the outstanding issues: Green Bay can lock up the number 1 seed in the NFC with a win in Kansas City; New Orleans can clinch their division by defeating Minnesota; and the Giants can ensure that a last day win over the Cowboys will win them the NFC East, if they are victorious at home against the Redskins.  Tim Tebow, 7-1 as a starter, faces his biggest challenge so far with a visit of Tom Brady and the Patriots to play the Broncos; the Lions and Raiders will try to keep up their battle for Wild Card spots in their matchup in Oakland, and the Colts will try to gain their first win of the season, for the fourteenth time, when they take on the Titans in Indianapolis.
