The results of NFL championships are not clear yet

Looking forward to the penultimate week 16 of the regular NFL season, there is still plenty of room to win for the NFL Playoffs.

While the three teams have won their divisions and the other five are certain that they will make it to the playoffs, four more points remain and the ability to take a little break in the final round makes it more palatable.

At AFC, Baltimore Ravens won the leadership positions in the North and Kansas City in the West. Buffalo Bills and New England Patriots defended their playoffs but still had to fight for the final spot in AFC East when they faced Gillette Stadium.

Patriots now have a victory first, so if they don’t lose to Bills, the reigning champions will win their share. Elsewhere in the AFC, Houston Texans are joining AFC South with a victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on the road.

NFC has only one established split winner and it’s Drew Brees leading New Orleans Saints, who has won NFC South with a wide margin.

However, the four teams in NFC have the same 11-3 record so the battle for the first round is goodbye. Green Bay Packers are one of those four teams and they can guarantee their division by defeating rival Minnesota Vikings, who can then secure a playoff berth by not losing that match.

The difficult 7-7 situation in NFC East could be over, if the Dallas Cowboys beat rivals Philadelphia Eagles in the City of Brotherly Love – both teams 7-7 with Dallas currently own a break-break due to Win the first encounter. Winning the cowboy means they can advance to the playoffs with a score of 8-8.

While a lot of teams are facing the opportunity to take their places and ease the pressure until the final week, there are five teams fighting for two play-off positions at AFC and four teams in NFC.

Houston Texans and Pittsburgh Steelers are the most likely candidates to proceed at the AFC but the challengers of Tennessee Titans and even Cleveland Browns and Oakland Raiders are still alive – almost none, but still alive. In NFC, it belongs to the Dallas and Philadelphia battles, while the Los Angeles Rams remain absent from NFC West and the Minnesota Vikings are still unsure.

Kirk Cousins ​​is said to sit for Vikings vs Bears in NFC

The Vikings locked into No. 6 seed in the NFC play-off round next week, knocked out of math from the NFC North division title after losing to Green Bay Packer last week Nothing to play in Week 17, Minnesota has the elegance of a beginner to enter the card game.

Minnesota will rest most of its beginners for Sunday’s game against Chicago Bear, by ESPN’s Courtney Cronin. One of the starters will be Kirk’s cousin midfielder, who will end his regular season with a 10-5 record, completing 69.1% of his passes in 3,603 yards, 26 times. touch the ball and six interceptions to assess 107.4 passers-by (a high career). The cousin has started 79 games in a row since the beginning of the 2015 season, the third longest running series in the NFL.

Not playing Cousins ​​could be a problem for the Vikings, who played one of the worst games of their year in the 23-10 defeat to Packers. The Viking attack was fought without Dalvin Cook, with 139 low-season yards and only 87 yards in failure.

Minnesota Vikings only went 4 for 15 on the third down and got the ball just 22 hours 28 minutes. Perhaps playing the beginners in a pointless game will get the Vikings into the rhythm of the playoffs, where they will face Packers, New Orleans Saints or Seattle Seahawks on the road If the Packers defeat the Lion Detroit, the Vikings will play the Seahawks if Seattle upsets the 49ers Sunday.

Starting on behalf of a cousin will be Sean Mannion, who threw just 53 passes in the NFL, completing 62.3% of them for 253 yards and one interception. He has only played five snaps for the Vikings this year because Sunday will be his first NFL since 2017.

Cook is listed as out and rookie Alexander Mattison is questioned by rule for Sunday’s game, which could lead to the Vikings starting Mike Boone for the second straight week. Boone had 11 bearing in 28 yards in his first career last week.

With all the Vikings’ injuries, resting might be the best way to get ready for the playoffs … whatever Minnesota looks like the last time Cousins ​​and the startups get on the pitch.
