More to Unwrap

Hope everyone had a great holiday.

I watched the Green Bay-Minnesota game on Christmas Eve but passed on the two games yesterday. I guess Oakland-Kansas City was exciting, but neither team is making the playoffs. Denver's win last night was essential to keep them in the race, and they'll hope for some of the other 8-6 teams to slip this week. Hosting Indy next week will not be easy.

As for the playoff races, Green Bay not only locked up the division but also the 3rd seed in the NFC. Minnesota will likely end up as the 5th seed, which means that both teams will play fairly mediocre teams in the first round. The Packers will have a big edge playing at home, but it is conceivable that the Vikings will have a relatively easy game too, playing against the NFC West champ.

In the AFC, Denver's win means that Jacksonville cannot clinch today. The Jags had a pretty far-fetched scenario anyway... Lastly, the Jets now have just two scenarios left - win or tie against the Patriots, or hope that both Buffalo and Baltimore lose or tie.
