Visions of Playoffs

NFL fans are looking at a few key matches this weekend as the regular season hits the home stretch.

As the NFL regular season winds down, a handful of tense matches dominate the news, as they will round out the playoff picture. The Falcons, Panthers and Saints are all in striking distance of playoff spots — and even the division title of the NFC South.  The most important game in the NFL this weekend will be the Saints hosting the Falcons.

Two teams fighting for a wild card spot — the Cowboys and Seahawks — will square off later Sunday afternoon.   

The Rams and Titans are two more playoff hopefuls clashing Sunday.  The Rams are in the lead for the NFC West division title, while the Titans need to keep winning to have a chance at the AFC South title or a wild card.  And the Bills vs. the Patriots also holds promise as a Christmas eve thriller, as the two division rivals both have playoff hopes.

It will be no surprise if some of these matchups are repeated in a few weeks.  But certainly that doesn't dampen the enthusiasm for the drama that is about to unfold, because the weekend's matches will determine who plays at home and who must travel.  In the NFC, the #1 and #2 seeds — and their one-game byes — are up for grabs.

Here are all the matches - and my picks:
