Week 14 NFL Picks: NFL Enters Final Quarter

New, comments

The mathematicians at NFL headquarters inform us that technically, 29 teams remain in contention for a trip to Super Bowl XLVII, and 22 teams are either in or within two games of a playoff spot. We look at which teams our panel of writers think will get one step closer to a playoff spot in Week 14.

Thomas Campbell-US PRESSWIRE

Only four games remain to decide which teams advance to the playoffs. And among many teams who've barely managed to win two successive games this season, talk has turned to how they can win the next four games en route to a playoff spot. Good luck with that.

Four teams have already clinched their postseason spots: The Falcons, Broncos, Patriots and Texans can start preparing for the playoffs, the Ravens and 49ers could also clinch this week.

For many of the remaining teams, the season could be over after this week, which makes this another potentially exciting weekend. Our panel this week is not unanimous in picking the Cowboys, but has them winning in Cincinnati. At the same time, fellow playoff contenders Washington and Minnesota are projected by our panel to fall off the pace this weekend, while Tampa Bay, Seattle and the Giants are all projected for wins. We'll see how that goes.

And without further ado, here are our picks for Week 14, 2012.
