NFL Playoff Predictions: Who's in? Who's Out?

The NFL Playoffs will commence in just 38 short days.

Predicting which teams will be the final 12 standing varies on a week-to-week basis.

The AFC picture is relatively clear. But there are still a few teams on the outside looking in that have a chance to make some noise in December.

Particularly in the AFC South, where two teams are tied for first at 6-5 and the other two trail by just one game.

But in the NFC, things are a lot murkier. Philadelphia, New York, Green Bay and Tampa Bay are all 7-4, but only two will likely make the postseason.

It's conceivable that a 10-win team could miss the playoffs while a seven-win team from the NFC West wins their division.

As of Dec. 1 only one team has been mathematically eliminated from playoff contention: the Carolina Panthers.

The Lions, Bills, and Bengals cannot win their respective divisions. But theoretically, they have an outside chance of winning out and getting a wild card spot.

For purposes of this slide show, we're assuming that there won't be an extraordinary number of ties and bad losses down the stretch by the league's top teams. So apologies to Lions, Bills, Bengals, Broncos, Cowboys, Cardinals and Browns fans, but you guys will be excluded from this list.

Let's take a look at the other 24 teams in the league. Check out their remaining schedule, and see if they'll be playing football come Jan. 8.
