After Sunday’s NFL action, four more teams clinched playoff spots, so with 18 games left on the schedule eight of the 12 playoff spots are spoken for. The Eagles had their Sunday night game pushed back two days, but clinched the NFC East when the Giants lost badly at the Packers. The Chiefs easily dispatched the Titans on Sunday, then clinched the AFC West when the Bengals upset the Chargers.

The Ravens clinched their playoff spot by beating the Browns, and still have a chance at winning the AFC North and getting a first-round bye. For that to happen, the Ravens need the Steelers to lose next Sunday at the Browns and to beat the Bengals; otherwise the Ravens will be the No. 5 seed in the AFC and the Steelers would win the division and get the No.2 seed.

The Jets lost a shootout to the Chicago Bears, but clinched a wild card with Jacksonville losing in overtime to the Redskins. The Patriots wrapped up the AFC East and the AFC’s No. 1 seed with a win over the Bills, so the Jets will be the AFC’s No. 6 seed no matter what happens next week.

If the Chiefs beat the Raiders at home next week, they’ll be the No. 3 seed and host the Jets next week. If the Chiefs lose and the Colts beat the Titans, the Colts would be the No. 3 seed and the Chiefs would fall to No. 4. The only other team with a chance at the AFC’s final spot is the Jaguars, who would win the AFC South and be the No. 4 seed if they beat the Texans and the Colts lose.

In the NFC, the Falcons are in and will win the NFC South and the NFC’s No. 1 seed with wins in one of their last two games. The Bears have already clinched the NFC North and would get the No. 2 seed with a win or an Eagles loss. The winner of next week’s Rams at Seahawks game will win the NFC West and get the No. 4 seed.

The Saints would claim one of the two wild cards with a win in one of their last two games. The Packers are in with a win over the Bears next Sunday or with losses by the Giants and Buccaneers. The Giants, who have been outscored 73-17 in their last 69 minutes of football, could still sneak in if they can beat the Redskins next week and the Packers lose. The Buccaneers need a win over the Saints next week and losses by the Packers and Giants.
