Two weeks remain in this NFL season, and seven teams remain outside the playoffs with a mathematical chance of still getting in. SB Nation broke down the scenarios that would get each playoff hopeful into the postseason. In the AFC, the Ravens, currently in seventh place, can get into the playoffs simply by winning out against the Colts and Bengals. The Chargers could take multiple difficult paths to the playoffs, but the most straightforward one would be for the Chargers to finish 2-0 and the Chief to finish 0-2. The Raiders and Dolphins need miracles to secure a first-round birth. In the NFC, the Lions have the best shot, needing to win out and for the Falcons to lose out. The Seahawks and Cowboys both need the Panthers and the Saints to lose all of their remaining games.
