As we count down the final weeks of the NFL season, the playoff picture continues to take shape. With teams like the Pittsburgh Steelers officially eliminated while teams like the New York Giants on the brink of missing the postseason, we are reminded once again that no team is guaranteed a spot in the playoffs from year to year. The final week of the season features some incredibly competitive games with a lot on the line, including matchups between the Green Bay Packers and Minnesota Vikings, Washington Redskins and Dallas Cowboys, and others.
