With the completion of the 15th week of the 2013 NFL season there are just two weeks remaining in the season, meaning it is time for the annual “If the Playoffs Began Today” matchups.
With the “potential matchups” out of the way, I would be very interested in seeing the Chiefs and Colts game in the playoffs, and in the NFC I would be excited to watch a Panthers and Bears matchup.
The Packers and Cowboys control their own destinies because if they were to win their final two games they would win their divisions and make the playoffs. So, those two teams are must watch football the final two weeks of the season.
My guess for the AFC … the Ravens won’t make the playoffs and the Dolphins will.
Miami has the Buffalo Bills and New York Jets remaining on their schedule (very winnable games), while the Bengals and Ravens play each other in the final game of the regular season, with more than likely the division title up for grabs.
In Week 16 the Bengals host the Minnesota Vikings and the Ravens host the Patriots. I’m picking the Patriots in that game. (I wouldn’t want to face an upset Tom Brady next week.)
In the NFC, I’m predicting the Cardinals won’t make the playoffs and the Bears will hold on to win the NFC North. That basically means I don’t see any changes in the NFC the final two weeks of the season.
I can’t predict the Cowboys to win any games in December that actually matter, but I predict they win next week against the Washington Redskins and lose to the Eagles in the season finale, costing them a division title and a playoff spot for the third consecutive season with a Week 17 loss.
The next two weeks should be exciting to see what occurs
I can’t wait.
