The Cardinals and Titans are the only NFL teams with a chance to clinch playoff spots in Week 12, according to information the league made available Tuesday.

Arizona would clinch the NFC West title with a victory over the Giants if the 49ers lost and the Seahawks lost or tied. Under that scenario, the Cardinals could do no worse than the No. 4 seed in the NFC playoffs. They are currently third in the NFC race.

In the AFC, the Titans can clinch a playoff spot by beating the Jets if the Dolphins and Ravens lose or tie, and if the Steelers also lose.

The Lions are the only team eliminated from playoff contention heading into Week 12.
