words_Brandon Richard

With just one week left in the NFL regular season, the playoff teams are finally starting to separate themselves from the pack. Teams clinching playoff spots this weekend were the Pittsburgh Steelers, Baltimore Ravens, New York Jets, Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles. The Chiefs and Eagles were able to lock up their divisions, while Pittsburgh and Baltimore will play for the AFC North and a Bye Week in separate games next weekend. The New England Patriots continued to roll, locking up the #1 spot in the AFC with a blowout win over the Bills. Still in the hunt for the remaining four spots are the Indianapolis Colts, Jacksonville Jaguars, New York Giants, Green Bay Packers, New Orleans Saints, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, St. Louis Rams and Seattle Seahawks. The Saints can clinch tomorrow night with a win over the Atlanta Falcons.
