The Final NFL Playoff Picture, schedule, clinching and seed scenarios is here for Week 17 of 2019. There’s just one week left in the NFL regular season and only one team has locked into its seed and spot in the NFC Playoff race. Seeds #1, #2, #3, #4 and #5 are all still up for grabs. In the AFC, five spots are locked up as the Ravens have clinched the #1 overall seed in the AFC and the Patriots, Chiefs, Texans and Bills have all clinched playoff spots as well. The Titans, Steelers and Raiders are fighting for the #6 seed in the AFC.
The NFC Playoff Picture is tight right now, with the San Francisco 49ers, Green Bay Packers, New Orleans Saints and Seattle Seahawks are still in the mix for the #1 seed and home field advantage. That means there are numerous clinching scenarios for all of those teams.
The Patriots and Chiefs are still jockeying for the #2 seed in the AFC. New England clinches it with a win or a Chiefs loss in Week 17. Kansas City will be the #2 seed with a win and a Patriots loss. The Texans clinched the AFC South in Week 16 and will either be the #3 or #4 seed. The Bills are the #5 seed no matter what happens this week. Tennessee will earn the #6 seed in the AFC with a win in Week 17 or a loss from the Steelers. Pittsburgh will be the #6 seed with a win and a Titans loss. The Oakland Raiders need to beat the Broncos and get tons of help to secure the final playoff spot in the AFC.
The Dallas Cowboys, strangely enough, are still alive in the NFC East hunt. But they need help, namely the Eagles losing to the Giants. So should Cowboys fans even hope to beat the Redskins?
The 49ers can finish in one of two places: #1 or #5. That’s it and their spot will be determined on Monday Night Football against the Seattle Seahawks, who just brought back Marshawn Lynch. Crazy, right?
The Saints and Packers are likely fighting for the #2 or #3 seed and neither can finish any lower than that. But both teams have something to play for in the final week of the season, unlike the Vikings. They are locked into the #6 spot.
