NFL Playoff Picture 2018 – Week 17 Scenarios
The Patriots seem to have an advantage in the playoffs which means they have a chance of coming first in the NFL. They will be going against the Jets on Sunday, who are also good at their game. However, it is not clear whether the Jets will be able to handle the Patriots this time since their quarterback, John McCown injured his hand earlier and will not be able to participate in the upcoming game. The thought of Bryce Petty from Jets going against the Patriots’ Tom Brady is disturbing. Honestly, the Jets may not be able to last as soon as the game begins.
In the end, the Falcons victory over the Panthers not only punched their playoff ticket, but also ensured a division title for New Orleans.
Super Bowl 52 kicks off on Sunday, Feb. 4 at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.

Super Bowl 52
Sunday, Feb. 4
The main threat to the Patriots is the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Patriots will meet the Steelers if they beat the Jets. On the other hand, the Steelers will have a significant advantage if the Patriots lose to the jets which are unlikely. Nevertheless, the results show that the Steelers are likely to become first or second if worse, so they are safe. The Jacksonville Jaguars have been brilliant throughout the season, and they are the 3rd in the least. They, however, can be beaten by the Kansas City Chiefs if they do not win the upcoming match. The Kansas City Chiefs will either maintain their third position or lock at the fourth spot if things go unexpectedly for them. The Philadelphia Eagles and the Minnesota Vikings are the two most unbeatable teams. The Eagles have acquired position 1. Seed while the Vikings are close to getting No. 2 Seed if they manage to win against the Chicago Bears at Home.
Who can make the playoffs in Week 17 and why
Reliable sources of analysis have the opinion that Los Angeles is likely to win the playoffs as compared to any other team. At the beginning of the season, LA Chargers recorded a poor run but, as time continued to go by, they were able to master the momentum that came with beating their very own derby enemies. On the other hand, as Titans proceeded to secure a more promising win, it is likely that in the final victory, LA Chargers might win and the Titans lose or come to a draw. Ideally, suppose this prediction does not come to pass, it will merely mean that the Chargers will have to travel to Jacksonville to take part in the wild-card event. What the good thing about LA winning is that when Titans lose, they will be pushed out of their current third position and then Chargers will use this loss to make a win. In the real sense, there is a high likelihood that now that the Jaguars will be locked into the position three seed, they will be facing Titans which goes without saying that all of their primary players will have to be on the field. When these two giants meet up and battle until the very end of time in Jacksonville hosted by Tenessee, it will favor the odds of Chargers winning. Another reason is that as soon as the Bills lose to the Dolphins, Buffalo will be headed to Miami. When Dolphins, Ravens, and Jaguars secure this win, it is likely that the playoffs will be taken by LA.
