Week 15 NFL Picks: Playoff Races Down To The Wire

New, comments

Playoff races are heating up as 26 teams remain in contention for the Super Bowl. We pick the winners and losers for the weekend.

Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports

As unlikely as it sounds, with three weeks left in the season, only six teams have been officially eliminated from the playoffs, three in each conference.

In the NFC, Los Angeles, Chicago, and San Francisco are out. In the AFC, Cleveland, Jacksonville, and New York are done.

That still leaves 26 teams, of which only one team, the Dallas Cowboys, has clinched a playoff spot. 25 teams are still battling to keep their playoff chances alive or to clinch a postseason berth. Should make for interesting games this weekend.

Except our writers don't think so. 11 of the 16 games this weekend are unanimous picks. We'll see how that turns out.
