What to Look For - Week 17



WHAT TO LOOK FORWEEK 17

 

STAYIN’ ALIVE: Entering Week 17, 18 teams remain in contention for a trip to Super Bowl XLVIII at MetLife Stadium. The 18 such teams ties for the fourth-most in Super Bowl contention with one week to play in NFL history (22 in 1982).

 

The seasons with the most teams in Super Bowl contention with one week to play:

UNPREDICTABLE NFL: With one week remaining in the 2013 regular season, it has already been assured that at least three teams will advance to the playoffs after missing the postseason in 2012 – CAROLINA (11-4), KANSAS CITY (11-4) and the eventual NFC East champion, DALLAS (8-7) or PHILADELPHIA (9-6). Since the 12-team playoff format was adopted in 1990, at least four teams have qualified for the playoffs in every season that were not in the postseason the year before.

 

Six additional teams that missed the playoffs last season are still in contention for a trip to Super Bowl XLVIII – ARIZONA (10-5), CHICAGO (8-7), MIAMI (8-7), NEW ORLEANS (10-5), PITTSBURGH (7-8) and SAN DIEGO (8-7).

 

The teams since 1990 to make the playoffs a season after failing to qualify:
