Every week in the NFL is a playoff game.  There are only 16 precious games per season for teams to position themselves to win their division, if not somehow find a way with help from others to secure a Wild-Card spot.  For all the one or two win teams time is running out, but mathematically they still have a chance.  Below are the NFL standings by division within both conferences.
