Looks like Green Bay will hold on to the number one spot for the playoffs, but the Vikings have to win out and hope the Cardinals and Bears lose.

There are other teams that need help this week. Baltimore is hanging on the edge and needs a couple of teams to lose. Las Vegas needs a miracle and win out. they are in the same seat as the Minnesota Vikings. For the Vikings they have to win out, the moons have to align, Venezuala has to have the Miss World winner, and Paul McCartney's album has to go to number one on the charts. Ok, so some of those things won't happen, or they might. What I'm trying to say is Minnesota needs a lot of help.

Pittsburgh lost for the first time and hasn't won since that game, they need to pull one out of their behinds and beat the Colts, or the Colts could move up in the standings. KC will most likely be the number one seed and is favored to go back to the Super Bowl.

I never thought I would say these two things, Cleveland can win and play their first game at home in the playoffs, and the Patriots are done for the season, but they can play spoiler for the Bills in the standings. Let the games begin!!!
