Unbelievably, there are just four more whole weekends of NFL activity before the playoffs start.
Who is to say which teams are actually in the running and which are not?
The Vikings are attempting to bounce back after an upset loss to the Lions, who are still in the running for an NFC playoff spot.
In the AFC East, the Jets and Patriots are still scuffling.
The phrase “any given Sunday” is more relevant than ever, as the stakes of the postseason increase with each game.
Which teams are worth supporting in reality?

Lamar Jackson won’t be playing for the Ravens, but will Tyler Huntley, who sustained a concussion last week, be available?
Or perhaps Anthony Brown, a rookie?
This is a game for pride as the Browns are over.
It’s concerning that Deshaun Watson hasn’t been that effective.
It’s challenging for the Ravens because they have back-to-back away games.
Although it’s close, they will win it thanks to their defense.
Bills at Dolphins
Time: Saturday at 8:15 p.m. ET (NFL Network); live stream available on fuboTV (try for free)
Open: 7.5 Bills
Bills currently: 7
Has the NFL developed a strategy to thwart the Dolphins’ offense?
Looks like it, for sure.
Miami’s offense has been restrained over the past two weeks as a result of defenses pressing receivers before dropping back into a zone with two high safety and no blitz.
The Dolphins currently have the lowest completion rate in the NFL (46%), and their yards-per-attempt average has fallen from 9.0 to 7.2.
Given that the Bills play press coverage at the second-highest percentage in the NFL (80%), that game plan works nicely for them.
In this game, the weather is also anticipated to play a role.
Early forecasts predict a 28 degree temperature and 16 mph winds.
Tua Tagovailoa has never competed in an NFL game in subzero conditions.
