NFL Week 15 Sunday Schedule: Five teams can clinch playoff berths today

The Packers are one of them, needing a bit of help to do it.

NFL: Pittsburgh Steelers at Buffalo Bills Kevin Hoffman-USA TODAY Sports

Three teams are already locked in to playoff spots across the NFL. The Baltimore Ravens have secured at least a playoff berth, while the Kansas City Chiefs and New Orleans Saints clinched the AFC West and NFC South division titles, respectively. Now, with three weeks remaining in the regular season, several other teams across the league have a chance to lock in their own postseason dreams.

The most critical to us here at Acme Packing Company is the Green Bay Packers. Matt LaFleur can send his team to the postseason in his first year as head coach with a win over the Chicago Bears and a loss by the Los Angeles Rams, who play in Dallas this afternoon.

Meanwhile, a pair of NFC West teams can lock up spots as well. The San Francisco 49ers will be in with either a win, a Rams loss, or losses by the Packers and Vikings. The Seattle Seahawks need a bit of help as well, but they will be in with a victory and a loss by either the Rams or Vikings.

In the AFC, two contests are win-and-you’re-in games for a pair of AFC East teams. The surprising Buffalo Bills will clinch at least a Wild Card spot if they can beat the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday Night, while the Patriots will lock up the same with a win over the 1-12 Cincinnati Bengals.

Tune in for all of today’s games and discuss here as we follow along with the hunt for the playoffs!
