NFL Contenders and Pretenders Heading into Week 14

Josh ZerkleChief Writer IIIApril 18, 2015

The NFL is heading into the last quartile or so of its season. With each of the league's 32 teams heading down the homestretch, which ones have a legitimate shot at playoff glory? And which don't?

The Indianapolis Colts have surprised most of us, as has Andrew Luck's rookie season, which somehow is living up to the hype. The Colts are 8-4. Also working his own rookie magic is Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III, who led his team to an impressive Monday night win at home against the Giants. 

Are the Dallas Cowboys finally out of it? They played well in their big game against Philly on Sunday night, but they have a tougher row to hoe than some other teams in the NFC.  Other teams like Griffin's Redskins, to say nothing of the Bears, Seahawks and even the Rams will have something to say about that.

To see all of our contenders and pretenders for Week 14, check out the video above, as NFL Lead Blogger Aaron Nagler joins me to discuss this week's contenders and pretenders. And leave your own contenders and pretenders in the comments below. As always, thanks for watching.
