The playoffs have already begun for a number of teams.

With Christmas on Sunday, Dec. 25th, the NFL has 14 games to play on Saturday the 24th instead and many of the teams are in do-or-die mode.

The Jets "host" the Giants in a must-win game for both teams.

The Eagles to travel to Jerry World to take on the Cowboys in another must-win scenario.

The Broncos, Raiders, Bengals, Titans and even the Chargers, are all hanging on for dear life in the AFC.

Even the surging Arizona Cardinals aren't technically eliminated yet.

Plain and simple, there are a ton of scenarios alive and if we know anything about the last two weeks of the season, it is that anything and everything is possible.

Heck, last week the Kansas City Chiefs with an interim head coach and new starting quarterback did what no other team could do this season, they beat the Green Bay Packers.

In some ways it was probably good for Green Bay. They now avoid all the pressure of the undefeated benchmark and can simply focus on winning football games.

They might have wanted to be perfect, but in the end the only thing that matters is who is hoisting the Lombardi Trophy.

When the playoffs roll around, everyone from the potentially 15-1 Packers to the potentially 8-8 Chargers or Eagles (two big outside shots still alive in the playoff race) have an equal chance of winning the Super Bowl.

We still have two more weeks to go before that though, and this weekend is all about Christmas and football. What more could you possibly want?
