  • If the Cards had won, the Rams could have made the playoffs, but they'd have become the seven-seed. Instead, the Rams are now locked to the Madden nfl 21 coins six-spot, so when the playoffs start next week they will be facing the Seahawks for the third time this season.

    The Bears did not beat the Packers on Sunday, but in the end that didn't matter, since they were able to backdoor their way into the postseason. Although the teams tied for the final playoff spot, the Bears get the nod because of the fact that they won the best winning percentage in common games tiebreaker.

    The Bills are the team no one, such as the Chiefs wants to see in the playoffs, also Week 17 insider notes

    Each year about this time we talk about the group you don't wish to confront the playoffs. You never include the No. 1 seed because, well, of course. And typically you pick the fifth or sixth seed because they got their wild-card place by playing well in December. The group you do not need to play January is the Buffalo Bills.

    With all due regard to the Packers, the AFC's No. 2 overall seed may just be the second-best group from the NFL. The Bills defeated the Dolphins 56-26 in a game Miami needed for their playoff hopes. And we didn't see a 30-point win coming, but it's in line with what the Bills have been doing to teams lately.

    Buffalo has had a top-five grading defense because Week 12. Otherwise to the Hail Murray they would have finished on a 10-game win streak dating back to before Halloween.

    And then there's Josh Allen. The third-year franchise quarterback has, in consecutive weeks, set the Bills single-season records for passing touchdowns and passing yards.

    What I love about the Bills is they aren't even letting teams hang around. Since that Week 10 loss to the Cardinals, not one team has finished within a possession of their Bills.

    I go back to that Week 6 loss to the Chiefs. Head coach Sean McDermott chose his poison and allow the Chiefs' run game defeat them up to ensure Patrick Mahomes wouldn't. Kansas City rushed for 245 yards and Mahomes passed for 225 yards. But with approximately 5 minutes left in the match and down 23-17, the Bills compelled a Clyde Edwards-Helaire fumble that could have given the Bills the ball in the Kansas City 31.

    They would have had a chance to take the lead from the Chiefs there. But instead, the playoffs revealed Edwards-Helaire's knee was down before the cheap Madden 21 coins ball came out. Mahomes took the Chiefs down to the field goal and provided the last margin of victory.
