    I don't think Saquon Barkley is anything special..........Infact, he reminds me of Trent Richardson.

    Coming down to the wire (AFC)

    Things are a bit more complicated in the AFC as we have 9 teams still vying for the five playoff spots. Again, there are teams that have most of their games in while a few teams are lagging. That being said, here we go. AFC EAST - The East is the best race in the league so far with NO, MIA and DAL still alive for the division title. NO has had a phenomenal season (9-2, 114 pt diff) with one of the worst rosters in the league, but they have MIA on the tails with two head to head match-ups left. I expect MIA to take both of those games, which will be the last two games that NO lose, finishing 12-4, while MIA finishes the season 5-1 and takes the division at 13-3. DAL will win two of their last three and finish up at a disappointing 9-7, while competing for the final playoff spot. CENTRAL - GIA are in commanding position over in the Central and I expect them to wrap up the division with a couple more wins (BUF and SEA) while splitting the last two and finishing at 12-4. ATL is still competing for a WC spot, but suffered a tough loss to WAS in week 15, which might play a major part in the WC selections. Their week 16 game vs GIA will depend on what NY has to play for, otherwise, ATL might finish up 9-7 and possibly miss the playoffs for third consecutive season. The Jets are the real mystery here. Sitting at 7-5 through 12 games they have 3 games that they should win and a toss up vs HOU, which should land them at 10-6 at worst and a very good chance for a playoff spot for the first time in team history. HOU has one hell of a schedule remaining, and will finish 8-8 at best, leaving the defending champs out of a chance to defend their title. WEST - AFC West roughly translates to mediocrity. The Chiefs have been a disappointment to say the least, and are going to have a difficult time clinching the division with DAL, PHI and PIT left on their schedule. At 7-6, I expect them to finish 9-7 as they concentrate on controlling the clock with a healthy Bo. PIT has a chance to steal the division away from KC as they have a favorable schedule remaining, as CHI, NE and the KC finale will all be tough, but winnable games. I don't see PIT winning out, and they'll finish up 8-8, just missing the playoffs. WILD CARD - There are a lot of possibilities here, but barring a complete collapse or major injury, I just can't see JETS not grabbing one of the final playoff spots. After that, it's a real toss up with HOU, DAL, ATL and PIT all alive. Being that DAL holds the tie breaker over ATL, I see them traveling to NY in the cold to begin the AFC playoffs.

    Coming down to the wire (NFC)

    With week 15 released things are starting to shape up across the league. Most teams have around 12 games in thus far with a few outliers each way (nice job @Prime). That being said, you can look at each team's body of work to this point and have a pretty good clue as to how they will finish the season. NFC: EAST - The East is Oakland's to lose. They lead the league in total D and are third in defense PPG while managing an above average offense, which has led to a 9-4 record thus far with PHI, SEA and CHI left. They should go 2-1 and finish up 11-5, finishing ahead of LA and CHI, who will fight for second place and a possible wild card slot. I see RAMS finishing 9-7 and CHI 8-8. CENTRAL - WAS should be in the drivers seat, but two tough losses (late fumble with the lead vs GB/last second JJ bomb loss vs OAK) have left them vulnerable. A tough win vs ATL in week 15 put them at 8 wins and a game and half up on GB and NE. WAS will finish anywhere from 2-1 to 0-3 (19-9 remaining opponent record). The division is still very much up in the air at this point. I see GB finishing up 2-2 and their final record ending at .500, while NE finishes 3-3 and also finishes .500. As long as WAS doesn't go winless the rest of the way, I think the division is theirs, as they currently own tie breakers over both chasers. WEST - SF looks like they're running away with the division at this point, but they have a date with PHI looming that could tie them in the loss column. That being said, SF should win the other three remaining games and finish 14-2 at worst, while PHI has some formidable opponents remaining (only one team left with a losing record as of this post). Honestly, I don't think SF will have to sweat much as they will take care of business in week 8 and put PHI two losses behind them while coasting the rest of the way to the #1 seed in the NFC. PHI will clinch a playoff spot for the 4th consecutive season after finishing 5-2 the rest of the way. WILD CARD - After all of that, we'll have one WC slot left (PHI at 12-4 takes the 4 seed). This is where it gets tricky. There are several scenarios here, but at this point, I see RAMS making their first playoff appearance since the '88 season. A lot will be riding on the GB/RAMS game that takes place in week 9. If LA wins that one, they should beat CLE and BUF to clinch the final playoff spot.

    You bet. The talks right now, pending my phone call to the tourney site here in a couple minutes, is a possible RBI Baseball tourney/open Nintendo night on Friday night before Midwest. Stay tuned for more announcements.
