Twelve teams remain after 17 weeks of action. The Patriots, Steelers, Bears, Falcons, Ravens, Colts, Jets, Chiefs, Packers, Saints, Seahawks and Eagles have all made it to the big dance, while 20 other teams sit back and watch while figuring out if they need a corner or a running back. 

Five teams that made the playoffs last season are part of the group that sits at home (AZ, MINN, DAL, CIN, SD). How many teams that made the playoffs this year won't make it next year? Just wait, I'm gonna tell you.

NFC North: Green Bay Packers

NFC South: Tampa Bay Buccaneers

NFC East: Philadelphia Eagles

NFC West: St. Louis Rams

WC(s): New York Giants, Chicago Bears


AFC North: Pittsburgh Steelers

AFC South: Tennessee Titans

AFC East: New England Patriots

AFC West: Oakland Raiders

WC(s): San Diego Chargers, Baltimore Ravens



The playoffs are here, 

Oh the playoffs are here, 

Which happens to be, 

My favorite time of year.

That may or may not be a poem. I don't know.
