ON FOOTBALL: Predicting the NFL is a fool’s game
Plus, the West-winning Broncos finish with home games against weaklings Cleveland and Kansas City.
New England’s strange loss to the 49ers puts it in a precarious position for a club that certainly looked like the league’s best before Sunday. If it beats Jacksonville and Miami, it will finish 12-4, but that might get only the third seed and no bye for the East champ.
It also could mean a trip to the Mile High City in the divisional round.
The North has three teams struggling to reach the finish line. Baltimore (9-5) has lost three in a row, yet secured a playoff berth Sunday. It leads Cincinnati by one game and finishes with the Bengals after meeting the Giants next weekend.
Cincinnati and the Steelers (7-7) face off next week at Pittsburgh. A loss pretty much eliminated the Steelers.
The Colts (9-5) have the best shot at a wild card and a win at Kansas City next week should do it.
Not that we’re predicting any such thing these days.
