NFL Playoffs: Week 15 Scenarios

We’ve got just three games left in the NFL season, and still a lot of playoff room still vacant. There are only four teams occupying the 12 available spots, and only the Atlanta Falcons are in on the NFC side of things. The room is a little tighter over in the AFC as two of the four divisions have been locked up with the other two possibly being clinched today.

Who’s looking to punch their postseason ticket today? Let’s take a look:
