    Collapse as in lose their last two games giving a plus one game to Dallas and Chicago which will help their playoff chances.

    They won like 7 straight then lost to the Vikings last week, so if they lose out , to me that's collapsing.

      The NFL has done a great job in making these late games relevant. I can remember, not so long ago, the last couple of weeks were worse than pre-season.

        There were always some games at the end of the year that were relevant to playoff seeding at least, before the divisional games in week 17 started. 08 was pretty good with that, and 06. 09 wasn't so great, but the only really bad year was 07.

        Week 17 you had almost every playoff team not caring about their game. I think Tennessee was the only team that even had anything to play for aside from pride and they got to play Indy resting their starters.

          For my playoff picture I got

          NFC

          1 Seahawks 14 2 1 more win and they wrap it up, 2 home games versus teams they already beat on the road
          2 Panthers 12 4 likely to win out, they get NO but at home then ATL
          3 Packers 9 6 1 Rodgers should be back by CHI game, they win it and I think they beat PIT even w/Flynn
          4 Cowboys 9 7 Cowboys finally get a playoff game, win out sweep division
          5 49ers 12 4 should win versus Atlanta and maybe lose at AZ but I think they get that win
          6 Saints 11 5 their fate was pretty much sealed with the loss @the Rams. Many people think NO is in another class but the real story is they are not very good on the road, and will likely lose to CAR, which puts CAR in the driver seat for the division

          AFC'

          1 Chiefs 13 3 Easy schedule helps them get the division, despite the sweep
          2 Patriots 12 4 Win in BAL and versus Buffalo
          3 Bengals 11 5 Win their last 2 at home
          4 Colts 10 6 Lose to Chiefs, but get 4 seed anyway, division clinched
          5 Broncos 12 4 Lose upset in Houston, win versus Oakland
          6 Ravens 8 8 Despite losing out, tiebreaker gets them in over MIA who also loses out despite easier schedule.

          WILDCARD

          Bengals over Ravens
          Colts over Broncos
          49ers over Cowboys
          Packers over Saints

          DIVISIONAL

          Patriots over Bengals
          Colts over Chiefs
          Seahawks over 49ers
          Panthers over Packers

          CHAMPIONSHIP

          Seahawks over Panthers
          Patriots over Colts

          SUPERBOWL

          Seahawks over Patriots

            Colts and at SD is EASY?

              I meant their season schedule is easier than Denver's is. Playing BUF instead of NE and what not.
              But I do think they'll get the win in SD. They look good now but SD is not consistent. Indy seems not to be playing as well now that they've clinched the division, so I do think they win out.

                Chuck Pagano said he doesn't have the philosophy of resting when locking up the division and that they will play just as they normally do. We shall see how they do. Let's go Colts.

                  Colts still have a shot at a bye.

                  I think if its a 3-way tie with Indy/NE/Cin at 11-5, they'd get the 2 seed.

                      Its possible, anything can happen but KC isnt beating Indy and SD back to back unless both rest some players.

                      SD already beat them in KC, and are playing really good football right now.

                      Probably wont make the playoffs but they can play for pride, and Rivers is a competitor.

                          Yeah anything can happen in any game but that would be a choke of massive proportions. Houston look terrible.

                          Too many people over-react because of the SD game. Lots of teams have looked bad on Thursday night because of the short week

                              They really don't look that bad in most games, they just lose close a lot. They lost by 1 to KC, in OT to SEA, 3 to AZ, 3 to IND and 3 to NE.

                              They can upset anyone it seems especially at home, they just haven't yet.

                                In the last three homes games they have lost to the Jags and Raiders.

                                Anyone can win on any given week but this game and the Raiders one should not cause many problems.
