Week 17 is all finished up in the NFL, and that means it’s officially playoff time around the league. The anticipation is high in advance of the first round, so with that in mind let’s check out some of the storylines going on around the league right now.

SNF Wrap-Up: The Steelers got the better of their bitter division rival Bengals last night in the regular-season finale on “Sunday Night Football,” taking a 27-17 victory at home.
Antonio Brown had a big evening, finishing with 212 all-purpose yards (and a punt return TD) and posted 129 total receptions on the season, which is second all-time in NFL history.
The Steelers will host Baltimore Saturday night, while the Bengals must travel to Indianapolis Sunday.

It’ll be interesting to see what happens to Eagles QB Mark Sanchez in the off-season. He’s set to become a free agent and likely won’t return to Philly. Sanchez posted 15 touchdowns and 14 turnovers and is fresh off his fifth win with the Eagles in relief of Nick Foles.

The Giants had a down-year in 2014, but they’ve got a few good things to build off of heading into next season. Reuben Randle is a member of what’s become a solid receiving corps in New York, and he was able to put up his second straight 100-yard performance in the finale.
Randle managed six grabs for 158 yards against the Eagles, giving him 12 catches for 290 yards in the final two games. He’ll be going into the last year of his contract in 2015.

Draft Order 2015: Let’s check out some of the top picks heading into the 2015 draft. The Buccaneers secured the No. 1 overall selection, followed by the Titans and the Jags rounding out the top three.
Oakland will take No. 4, while the Redskins, Jets and Bears will pick after that. The Giants get No. 8, while the Rams and Falcons round out the top 10.
