Week 16: NFC far from settled
Five teams still in hunt for playoff spots; Bengals complete AFC picture
Two nights before Christmas, the AFC playoff berths were wrapped up like a neat present. The NFC, however, needs one more week to figure out a couple of spots.
The bow was wrapped around the AFC postseason roster when the Cincinnati Bengals eliminated the Pittsburgh Steelers and clinched the No. 6 seed. That win, along with the Baltimore Ravens' victory over the New York Giants, enabled the Ravens to clinch the AFC North, so all four divisions are clinched.
