Dec. 19, 2018

Only two weeks remain in the regular season for the NFL, but there is still plenty of things to be decided when it comes to seeding and clinching playoff spots. Only seven total teams remain in the hunt between the AFC and NFC, but only five teams have clinched spots in the playoffs which means another seven are still up for grabs. While some teams are on the verge of elimination, others are still right in the thick of things. So like last week, we will take a look at what each team currently holding a playoff spot can clinch this weekend as well as the remaining schedules for those teams and the teams still in the hunt so let us get started right away.
