It's Week 14 of the NFL season and the first playoff spot has been clinched. The Los Angeles Rams claimed their second straight NFC West title by virtue of last week's win in Detroit. What's more the Rams (11-1) are once again the overall top seed in the NFC following New Orleans' loss to Dallas last Thursday night.
The Saints (10-2) are still in excellent shape in the NFC South and can seal up the division title with a win over Tampa Bay or should Carolina lose to Cleveland. New Orleans also gets a shot at avenging its Week 1 home loss to the Buccaneers, who have won two in a row.
In the AFC, New England (9-3) can secure its 10th straight AFC East title with a win in Miami while Houston (9-3) can sew up the AFC South by beating Indianapolis at home and with a Tennessee loss to Jacksonville on Thursday night. Kansas City (10-2) can punch its postseason ticket with a victory over Baltimore (7-5), who currently holds the second wild-card spot in the conference. The Los Angeles Chargers (9-3), who will host Cincinnati, have the other.
Other games on the Week 14 slate with playoff ramifications include Philadelphia (6-6) in Dallas (7-5) with first place in the NFC East on the line, as well as a "Monday Night Football" matchup between the two teams that currently hold the two NFC Wild Card spots — Minnesota (6-5-1) and Seattle (7-5). Additionally, NFC North-leading Chicago (8-4) will look to bounce back after last week's loss to the Giants, as the Bears host the Rams for "Sunday Night Football."
And while both teams are likely out of the postseason chase, Atlanta vs. Green Bay should be an entertaining game and will be the Packers' first since parting ways with head coach Mike McCarthy.
