Seven divisions still up for grabs
With three weeks left in this unpredictable NFL season, the playoff picture is still extremely blurry.
New England's snowy win over Miami was enormous, since it means the Pats can do no worse than 11-5 and the Dolphins can do no better than 11-5. And because New England won both head-to-head meetings with Miami, it will be the division champ. Miami now must battle at least Tennessee and Denver for one of the two wild-card spots. Buffalo and the Jets are still alive, barely, but most likely will fill the role of spoiler as they each play Miami and New England in the season's final two weeks.
