NFL Playoffs In Sharper Focus

By on December 23rd, 2013

The NFL playoffs are just about set but the seeding is still very much up in the air with one week to go in the regular season.

It was not a good day for Florida NFL teams as all of them lost in Week 15.   The biggest blow came to the Miami Dolphins who were blanked 19-0 at Buffalo.   The loss does not eliminate Miami from playoff contention but it must beat the New York Jets next week and have either Cincinnati or San Diego to qualify.

Tampa Bay lost to St.Louis 23-13 and Jacksonville squandered an early lead in a 20-16 loss at home to Tennessee.

In the AFC, Denver has clinched the AFC West, with New England, Cincinnati and Indianapolis also clinching division titles.   Kansas City has clinched one playoff spot with Miami, Baltimore, San Diego and Pittsburgh trying for the last spot.

In the NFC, no one has clinched a division title but Seattle and Carolina have clinched playoff spots.  Philadelphia and Dallas meet next week to decide the NFC East while Carolina is at Atlanta and New Orleans hosts Tampa Bay as the NFC Central title will be decided and Seattle hosts St.Louis and San Francisco is at Arizona to decide the NFC West.

Green Bay plays at Chicago to decide the NFC Central winner as well.
