Former NFL Scout Matt Manocherian of Sports Info Solutions and football analytics pioneer Aaron Schatz of Football Outsiders take a look at how the playoff picture is shaping up in both conferences through the lens of DVOA (1:00). Then, they break down the key Week 17 games from each conference. In the NFC, Seattle needs a win against Arizona to keep their playoff hopes alive, while Atlanta’s divisional matchup against Carolina has implications for both teams (15:15). In the AFC, the Chargers need to take care of business against the Raiders to keep the pressure on the Titans, who with a win could earn a return trip to Jacksonville in the Wild Card round (23:45).
