Who’ll claim the final two playoff spots?

Ten of the 12 postseason berths have been claimed. Two remain. Three, as a practical matter, are in contention for the final available spots, which come from the NFC North champion and the second wild card in the NFC.

The possible permutations are Packers and Washington (with wins by Green Bay and Washington), Packers and Lions (with a loss by Washington), and Lions and Washington (with wins by Detroit and Washington). The Buccaneers also are technically alive, but they need a variety of things to fall their way, including a tie in the Giants-Washington game.

So which teams will make it? That’s our PFT Live question of the day.

Answer it, comment, and then tune in for a show that includes visits from Falcons Pro Bowl linebacker Vic Beasley and Cowboys defensive end David Irving.

  1. The name of the team is the Redskins. And although you didn’t want to write an article on the last court ruling out of embarrassment about your predictions, they will not lose their trademark.

  2. WTF? Do you mean to tell me that the Vikings wouldn’t repeat as NFC Champs? I’ve been reading for the past 6 months that they are Superbowl bound.

    Maybe they are as I am sure Houston will need some more ushers to help the fans find their seats.

  3. I believe Washington is going to lose to the Giants leaving Green Bay as division winner beating the Lions and the Lions being the last wildcard team.

  4. As a Lions fan, I’ll be on pins and needles till the end of the game Sunday. And yes, I’ll be pulling for the Lions even though Green Bay is playing very well.

  5. When Stafford and Cousins dash the Slackers post season hopes, i will laugh and laugh and laugh….worst fan base in the nation and they deserve the next decade of losing seasons.

    You again? You have never had any of your toothless predictions come true. Ever.

    Maybe you should be following women’s volleyball.

  7. What is the passing yards record in a single game? Stafford might break it against the joke of a defense called Green Bay. If not Stafford, Dak, Eli, Matty Ice or Russell….embarassment to the NFC North.

    Lions will get one of them. They have won their prior six home games. A chance for the division title for the first time in 23 years? Ford Field will be incredibly loud this Sunday!

    I think both the Packers and Lions get in with the Packers taking the North Division. In case you haven’t been paying attention, only Dak and Cousins beat the Pack by more than 1 point. The Packers soundly beat Eli, Stafford, and Russell.
