As week 15 of the NFL season gets started there are 12 teams fighting for 5 playoff spots. The only team that has clinched a spot are the Atlanta Falcons with an 11-2 record. Even though the Falcons have clinched the NFC South; the overall top seed is still up for grabs.
So far this season the Falcons are the only team in the NFC to win more than 10 games. The next closest team to them are the San Francisco 49ers(9-3-1) and the Green Bay Packers(9-4). All the other teams fighting for playoff spots are doing all it takes to stay above .500.
With all the divisions up for grabs excluding the south; week 15 should be interesting with all teams on a must win basis. With a couple of key wins; divisions could start looking more clear and teams will start to fall. As last season showed with the Giants; its not the team with the best record that finds success, it's the team with the hottest hand. See how I rank my top 6 teams fighting for playoff position.
