A Brief “If The Season Ended Today” Look At The NFL Season

In light of Matt Schaub’s apparent season-ending foot injury, it’s time to get real and begin a flash-forward to the NFL playoffs.

Actually, I want to use this opportunity to continue my unwavering mission to figure out what teams will be playing during NBC’s Wild Card Saturday. I have some sort of sickness I believe.

Alas, IF THE SEASON ENDED TODAY…it would look something like this:


#1 – Houston Texans (AFC South champion, bye)

#2 – Pittsburgh Steelers (AFC North champion, bye)

#3 – New England Patriots (AFC East champion)

#4 – Oakland Raiders (AFC West champion)

#5  – Baltimore Ravens (Wild Card)

#6 – Cincinnati Bengals (Wild Card)


#1 – Green Bay Packers (NFC North champion, bye)

#2 – San Francisco 49ers (NFC West champion, bye)

#3 – New Orleans Saints (NFC South champion)

#4 – New York Giants (NFC East champion)

#5 – Detroit Lions (Wild Card)

#6 – Chicago Bears (Wild Card)


SATURDAY, JANUARY 7 @ 4:30PM – #5 Oakland at #4 Baltimore (NBC)*

SATURDAY, JANUARY 7 @ 8:00PM – #5 Detroit at #4 New York (NBC)

SUNDAY, JANUARY 8 @ 1:00PM – #6 Chicago at #3 New Orleans (FOX)

SUNDAY, JANUARY 8 @ 4:30PM – #6 Cincinnati at #3 New England (CBS)

*Also known as the “Brad Nessler or Tom Hammond Game.”
