For some teams, the Week 18 NFL schedule means nothing in terms of making the postseason. For others, this week is already like the playoff game with a “win and get in” scenario in front of them.

In fact, some need to win and some help from other teams. If you are confused about the playoff scenarios, don’t worry. We have them all broken down below.
