Get your playoff teams right here
Question of the Day
Get your playoff teams right here!
Eight weeks to go, and the playoff picture is starting to take shape. Except, of course, in the NFC Least, uh, East, where anyone has a shot, even though only Dallas owns a winning record.
When New Year’s rolls around, this is how each division will look.
The Patriots (7-2) always win it and will do so again, despite being undermanned on both sides of the ball. Tom Brady and Bill Belichick are simply that good, and they’ll find a way to get four or five more wins.
If the season ended today, the Jets (5-4) would get a wild-card berth, a mammoth achievement for coach Rex Ryan, whose offense wouldn’t impress Pac-12 opponents. If New York continues its alternate wins and losses through December, that’s 8-8, very impressive for this roster, but not good enough for the postseason.
Streaky Miami (4-4) also will wind up around .500, and Buffalo (3-5) will scare some teams, but will not qualify for the 14th straight season.
Unless the defending Super Bowl champion Ravens (3-5) find an offense, particularly a running game, very soon, they are toast. Quite possibly they are anyway with Cincinnati (6-3) a better all-around team, although losing star DT Geno Atkins hurts. This week’s matchup at Baltimore will tell a lot.
Cleveland (4-5) has a solid defense and the most hope in years that a turnaround is coming despite uncertainty at quarterback.
Pittsburgh (2-6) is a shell of the contending Steelers teams, but can still be troublesome to division opponents.
