How the Playoff picture look after Week 14

NFL Playoff Scenarios - Week 15

A lot of scenarios had developed after a couple of UPSETS in the NFL after Week 14.

The Baltimore Ravens just needed one more win to capture the division, but it didn’t happen (they lost to the Redskins in OT 28-31).  The Cincinnati Bengals needed a win to knockout most of the AFC teams that are on life support, but they didn’t (lost to the Cowboys 20-19).  The Atlanta Falcons would’ve solidified a first-round bye with a win over the Carolina Panthers, but they didn’t with a 30-20 loss (I picked that upset – I’m just saying).

So here is how it is shaping up in Week 15.
