NFL Week 15 - NFL Playoff Scenarios After Sunday

The NFL Playoff Picture is coming into focus with two more teams punching their tickets to the postseason party.  The Atlanta Falcons and Pittsburgh Steelers have joined the New England Patriots as locks for the NFL Playoffs after yesterday's action.  The Chicago Bears face Minnesota tonight with a chance to get closer to the playoffs themselves.

As for the Browns, they were eliminated a couple weeks ago but had the opportunity to play spoilers.  With home games against the Ravens and Steelers to come, the Browns could have thrown a money wrench into the playoff hopes of both teams - as well as the AFC North title hopes of both.  After losses to Buffalo and Cincinnati, it doesn't look like the Browns will put up much of a fight at all.

As is stands, here is what the playoffs would look like if they started today - with one game to go this week, of course:

AFC:

#1 Seed - New England Patriots

#2 Seed - Pittsburgh Steelers

Wild-Card Games:

#6 Seed - New York Jets @ #3 Seed - Kansas City Chiefs

#5 Seed - Baltimore Ravens @ #4 Seed - Indianapolis Colts

NFC:

#1 Seed - Atlanta Falcons

#2 Seed - Philadelphia Eagles

Wild-Card Games:

#6 Seed - New York Giants @ #3 Seed - Chicago Bears

#5 Seed - New Orleans Saints @ #4 Seed - St. Louis Rams
