Here’s a look at the NFL’s playoff picture headed into the final week:

AFC
1. New England Patriots (13-2) — I’m betting Bill Belichick plays his starters in meaningless finale.
2. Pittsburgh Steelers (11-4) — Need a win over Cleveland or a Baltimore loss to wrap up No. 2 spot.
3. Kansas City Chiefs (10-5) — Expected to play starters against Raiders; might need win for No. 3 spot.
4. Indianapolis Colts (9-6) — Need a win over Tennessee or a Jacksonville loss to clinch division.
5. Baltimore Ravens (11-4) — Locked in the No. 5 spot unless they beat Cincinnati and get help.
6. New York Jets (10-5) — Locked in the No. 6 spot, regardless of what happens vs. Bills.
——————————————————————————————
7. Jacksonville Jaguars (8-7) — Need to beat the Texans and cheer for the Titans in Indy.

NFC
1. Atlanta Falcons (12-3) — Just need to beat Carolina to wrap it up.
2. Chicago Bears (11-4) — Realistically nothing to play for Sunday in Green Bay.
3. Philadelphia Eagles (10-5) — Locked into this spot after a shocking loss to Minnesota.
4. St. Louis Rams (7-8) — Win in Seattle clinches a home playoff game.
5. New Orleans Saints (11-4) — No. 1 seed is still within their distant reach against Bucs.
6. Green Bay Packers (9-6) — Beat Chicago and they’re in.
——————————————————————————————
7. New York Giants (9-6) — Beat Washington and get a Green Bay loss and they’re in.
8. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (9-6) — Beat New Orleans and get losses from Packers and Giants and they’re in.
9. Seattle Seahawks (6-9) — Do-or-die against the Rams, amazingly.
