If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 13

Just one short month remains in the season, and still, no team has clinched a playoff berth. That’s not a surprise in the NFC West, where it’s still quite possible the division winner will have a losing record. Only in the AFC West does the division leader have a lead more than one game. And […]
