    Only one word can describe the NFC this season and that's chaos. With the exception of the Rams at 12-2, no team has clinched a playoff berth with 2 weeks remaining with 8 teams fighting for 5 spots. The Cowboys lead the NFC East at 9-5 but are trailed by the Redskins and Giants both at 8-6. The Cowboys can wrap up the division by winning 1 of their last 2 but also have a shot at the #2 seed in the NFC if they win out. The Vikings and Bears are tied atop the NFC North at 8-6 with a huge meeting coming in week 16. If the Vikings win they clinch the division but a loss opens up a chance the Bears may be able to steal the division away. The NFC South is led by the Bucs at 9-5 but closely followed by the Panthers at 8-6. The Bucs need to avoid any slipups or the Panthers will be walking away with the division. If the current standings hold, that would leave the Redskins, Giants, Bears, Panthers and 49ers all fighting for 2 wildcard spots. Who will step up and who will wilt under the pressure? One thing is certain this will be an exciting and intense 2 weeks for these teams as the playoff race shakes out.

    nice read curtis and very true. The AFC seems quite jumbled as well but unlike the NFC 3/4 divisions have already been clinched and mainly its just a fight for that last wildcard spot and the AFC North seems like a tossup right now between the Browns and Ravens.
