Alyssa Sconzo @alyssasconzo5 Updated at 12:35 p.m. ET Updated at 12:35 p.m. ET The NFL playoff schedule is set, but much of the bracket is still to be determined as the postseason picture crystallizes in Week 17. Heading into the final week of the season, almost every team in the AFC still has a scenario to clinch a playoff berth, while a few teams have an opportunity to claim the top seed. In the NFC, the matchups are more clear, but for some teams, Sunday is a must-win. Every game in Week 17 will be played on Sunday and any games that influence one another will be slated to start at the same time to avoid any team having a competitive edge in regards to knowing the outcome of any game. WEEK 17 PICKS: Straight up | Against the spread The Saints have clinched home-field advantage with their 13-2 record so far. The Patriots, Bears, Rams and Cowboys won their respective … [Read more...] about NFL playoff schedule: Dates, times, TV channels for every 2019 postseason game

Where every team could end up landing once the playoff picture shakes out by Will Brinson @WillBrinson moments ago • 9 min read The insanity of Week 17 is about to kick in with gusto -- the NFL likes to make sure no one has a competitive advantage in terms of knowing outcomes during the final week of the season, so the league schedules every single game on Sunday, making sure games that affect one another start at the same time. The result can be absolute chaos when it comes to the standings. To make sure you know what's going on, I broke down every possible seeding outcome for every single NFL team remaining in the playoff hunt. The AFC and NFC couldn't be more different right now -- in the AFC almost every team is still alive for a bye and several surprising teams are still alive for the top seed. The NFC is a little more cut and dry. Let's run through every single team, in their current playoff order ahead of Week 17, and look at … [Read more...] about NFL Playoff Picture Week 17 standings: Every single NFL team’s clinching and seeding scenarios
The Redskins and Cowboys will play again, while the Falcons and Saints will also square off by Will Brinson @WillBrinson 3m ago • 4 min read As usual, on Thanksgiving, the 2018 NFL schedule makes us thankful with a trio of fantastic games.All three of the matchups are division rivalry games, and all three of the games feature matchups from the NFC. Bears at Lions (12:30 p.m. ET, CBS)This has turned into a rematch of an ugly game from Week 10 -- the Bears mostly manhandled the Lions before Detroit made a late comeback to pull within 12 points. Matt Nagy has his team in great shape, sitting at 6-3 and in first in the NFC North. With two games remaining against the Vikings, Chicago doesn't have a whole lot of room for error if it wants to win the division, making this road trip to Detroit a pretty enormous matchup. The Lions, who are struggling badly this year and fell to 3-6 after losing to Chicago, have been impressive on … [Read more...] about 2018 NFL Thanksgiving Schedule, how to watch: Three great division rivalry games, Bears-Lions on CBS
A Yahoo Sports writer was triggered by the fact that some NFL teams will start ‘unreliable’ quarterbacks this weekend, while still ignoring former San Francisco 49er and national anthem protester Colin Kaepernick. In his October 31 Yahoo Sports op-ed, writer Chris Cwik was distraught over teams such as the Buffalo Bills, 49ers, and others, pursuing “unreliable quarterbacks instead of giving Colin Kaepernick a call.”“Kaepernick has remained unsigned since taking a knee in 2016. Since then, a number of other quarterbacks have been brought in over the 30-year-old Kaepernick. It’s gotten to a point where Kaepernick has filed a grievance against the NFL, alleging the league has colluded to keep him from being signed,’ Cwik wrote. The Yahoo columnist goes on to list all the “unreliable quarterbacks” that he feels are less able than Kaepernick including, Austin Davis, Mullens, Derek Anderson, Tom Savage, Matt Barkley, and Landry … [Read more...] about Yahoo Sports Triggered By NFL Teams Starting ‘Unreliable’ QB’s Instead of Kaepernick
In 2017, the Jacksonville Jaguars were three minutes away from their first Super Bowl appearance after arguably the best season in franchise history. In 2018, the club brought back nearly every important player from that AFC South championship team — and after Week 8’s loss, the Jaguars are on pace for a return to their 6-10 roots. Jacksonville isn’t the only NFL team that’s seen its postseason hopes suffer significant casualties over the first half of the year. 2017 contenders like the Falcons, Titans, Eagles, and Vikings would all miss the playoffs if the season ended after Week 8. Some of those teams are in better shape than others, but none can be happy with the way the first eight weeks of the season have played out. So what’s been the problem ailing these teams whose lofty preseason hopes have been torn apart and left to be reassembled like jigsaw puzzles with varying degrees of difficulty? Let’s take a look at five teams who’ve … [Read more...] about Is there still hope for these 5 disappointing NFL teams?
