NFL, Essentially AFC Update

December 29, 2020

Three quarters of the 16 final regular season week NFL games have meaning with half of the 14 playoff spots and the lone NFC first/wild card round bye to be determined.

Last week, the defending champion K.C. Chiefs again won but did not cover (0-6-1) vs the spread in 7 straight victories) edging Atlanta, to clinch the AFC one seed and the aforementioned first round bye.

Elsewhere in the AFC, (12-3) Buffalo, after its rout Monday night win vs (6-9) New England, needs either a win vs “win and they are in the ‘offs,” (10-5) Miami or a (12-3) Pittsburgh loss vs “win and they are in, also (10-5) Cleveland, to gain the once important, perhaps still, “2” seed.

In addition to Miami and Cleveland, three other AFC teams are (10-5) and one of the 5 (10-5) teams will not make the ‘offs, perhaps with an (11-5) record, (in that case it would be the Colts, who dissipated a (24-7) second half lead at Pittsburgh last week), while in the NFC, the NFC East winner will qualify and host a few if any fans first round tilt, with at best a (7-9) record and maybe even (Giants fans hope so or do they as they could get the third draft pick in one scenario, certainly involving a loss vs Dallas) a (6-10) mark.

Both Baltimore and Tennessee, last year’s slot 2 opponents are in with a win, while the Colts need to win and for one of the other current (10-5) teams to lose, otherwise be out of the ‘offs.

Later this week, more on the ‘offs possibilities with notes you will, very likely, only find/read here.
