The NFC’s No. 2 seed went to Tampa Bay and neglected to score a touchdown, which means the Seattle Seahawks are currently looking behind them instead of before them, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are in this thing.
The AFC’s No. 1 seed blew a 17-direct lead at home toward a dead-looking Carolina group, saw its establishment quarterback leave the diversion for a moment with his pinkie indicating the wrong path, returned win it toward the end and still in some way or another dropped into the No. 2 spot.
The AFC’s No. 2 seed needed to return the final quarter to beat the Jets, and accordingly turned into the No. 1 seed once more. So with two amusements left in Week 12 and five more weeks to pursue this present one’s over, here’s a gander at a NFL playoff picture ensured to do a great deal of changing – both in the transient and the long.
Most grounded: Those Buccaneers have won three in succession – the last two against Kansas City and Seattle – and five out of their last seven. One diversion behind Atlanta in the NFC South, they’ve effectively part the season arrangement with the Falcons, and their division record (2-1) is just a half-amusement more terrible than Atlanta’s (3-1). They’re likewise ideal on Washington’s tail. Furthermore, yes, three of their last five recreations are street diversions, however the Bucs are 4-1 out and about. This isn’t as insane as it sounds.
Weakest: The Arizona Cardinals (4-6-1) have won just a single of their last five amusements and sit two diversions behind the second trump card spot and three recreations behind division-driving Seattle. On the off chance that this was your preseason pick to win the Super Bowl, this is a hard ad spot to peruse. On the other hand sort, all things considered.
Side note: The Green Bay Packers (4-6) require a triumph Monday Night in Philadelphia to remain on the edges of their division race and the special case race. Green Bay has made the playoffs each of the previous seven seasons, which is tied with New England for the longest dynamic streak in the NFL.
