With just three games left in the 2015 regular season, NFL fans everywhere are starting to gear-up for the playoffs in full force. Several of Week 15’s contests have potentially major postseason implications, so without further ado, here are the top five games you need to catch.
I’ll be at this one, trying to root my boys in blue to a win, but I’m not sure how much faith I have in an injured Hasselbeck (or, worse, Charlie Whitehurst) if Luck can’t go. This game is huge in the AFC South division race. If Houston wins, Indianapolis could lose the division crown and miss the playoffs for the first time since 2011. It’s a terrifying time to be a fan of the horseshoe.
The Broncos lost a tough one to the Oakland Raiders last week and the Steelers got a huge win over the banged-up Cincinnati Bengals. If Denver loses this game, they’re basically out of contention for the No. 1 seed in the AFC. If Pittsburgh loses, they don’t have much of a chance of stealing the AFC North away from the Queen City. This one ought to be a battle.
It’s asking a lot of Eli Manning and Odell Beckham Jr. to finally knock-off the undefeated Panthers. They could, at least in theory, though, manage it. Manning is a two-time Super Bowl champion still fighting to take the wide open NFC East and OBJ is, well, OBJ. I’m not saying Carolina will finally add a 1 to their loss column this week, but it’s well worth watching to find out.
The Cardinals are still fighting for the No. 1 seed in the NFC and the Eagles are looking to win the aforementioned disaster that is the NFC East. Chip Kelly’s team beat the Patriots and seems to be surging at a great time. I think this one could be tougher than Cards Nation is expecting.
PSA: This is a Saturday night game, so don’t forget to set your DVR if you actually have a life. The Jets are currently fighting with the Kansas City Chiefs and the Pittsburgh Steelers for two AFC wildcard spots. The ‘Boys, meanwhile, are just two games back in the NFC East, which still puts them (somehow) in contention.
