Who is the team that you hope to see in the playoffs? There are still a number to choose from right now who still have a shot, and also many who no longer stand a chance of reaching this next level for the current season. If your favorite team has already been eliminated from the chance to reach this level then you can always cheer on one of those who still have a chance. The Arizona Cardinals will not make it to the last games of the season and they have been eliminated. The Atlanta Falcons are one of the top picks expected to make it, and they rank far above the Baltimore Ravens where the odds are concerned.
The Buffalo Bills and the Carolina Panthers are both in the elimination list, but the Chicago Bears and the Cincinnati Bengals both have a chance while there are still two match ups left in the regular season. Th Cleveland Browns will not be seen during the final events and neither will the Detroit Lions. If your favorite is the Dallas Cowboys, the Denver Broncos, or the Green Bay Packers then there is still a reason to hope. The same is true with the Houston Texans and the Indianapolis Colts.
If you are a fan of the Jacksonville Jaguars or the Kansas City Chiefs you will be disappointed because these are not names that will be seen in any playoff schedule. You could choose to follow the Miami Dolphins, the Minnesota Vikings, or the New England Patriots instead. They all have a decent shot so far but this could change quickly. The New Orleans Saints and the New York Giants are still holding their own and have a chance at one of the final games of the current year as well.
Some of the names that the schedule will not show include the New York Jets, the Oakland Raiders, and the Philadelphia Eagles. You will also not find the San Diego Chargers, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, or the Tennessee Titans. All of them have already been knocked out of the competition for the playoff slots available. The Saint Louis Rams are a long shot but they have not been eliminated just yet, while the San Francisco 49ers are a team that has a lot of support and backing in the world of sports. You could also choose to root for the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Seattle Seahawks, or the Washington Redskins.
Whether you are hoping for your favorite to win or you choose another team due to your top pick being eliminated this is a great time of year for football enthusiasts. The final events and matches before the Super Bowl are some of the most watched all year long, and they can draw in millions of viewers from around the world. Anyone who enjoys this sport usually has a favorite that they want to go all the way. If this is not possible because of elimination then you can always decide on another group of players to support until the new season starts.
