Week 15 of the NFL season wasn't special until the San Francisco 49ers and New England Patriots tangled on Sunday Night Football.
The early games featured blowouts across the board, while the only decent late game pitted the Dallas Cowboys against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Tony Romo and company came out ahead in overtime, setting up a three-way tie for first in the NFC East.
Meanwhile, the Baltimore Ravens earned a playoff spot despite a third consecutive loss. They sit just one game up on the suddenly streaking Cincinnati Bengals in the AFC North.
The Seattle Seahawks inched closer to a postseason spot after destroying the Buffalo Bills 50-17 in Toronto. Needless to say, it seems that the two hottest teams in the NFC are out west in the form of Seattle and San Francisco, who go up against one another next week.
Speaking of the 49ers, they blew a 31-3 lead before coming back and winning 41-34 over New England at Gillette Stadium. This was a huge loss for New England, who fell behind the Denver Broncos for the No. 2 overall seed in the AFC. San Francisco clinched a playoff spot with the win.
With only a handful of teams officially eliminated from playoff contention, the final two weeks of the season promise to be full of drama.
