I've tried the usual methods, google and all the rest.

Just need/want to know which team(s) can win their last two games and get into the NFL playoffs. No reliance on others losing or winning, just "win and in". I heard orally the Ravens but have not been able to confirm it or any others. Thanks for saving me a long struggle to get some facts. Happy Holidays as well.

Chiefs are in with a win, since they have the tiebreaker over the Chargers.
Chiefs are also in if the Chargers and Raiders both lose.

Saints and Panthers clinch at least a wild card with a win.

Rams are in with a win or a Seahawks loss.

I think that's it - the wild card races are too close for anyone to clinch this week other than Saints/Panthers.

...I stand corrected; Atlanta does clinch a wild card with a win, since even if they end up 10-6 and both New Orleans and Carolina end up 11-5, the only other possible wild cards that can reach 10-6 are Seattle, Dallas, and Detroit, and Atlanta beat all three this season, so the Falcons would win any tiebreaker.

Yes...That in fact was the first link to the inquiry. It doesn't answer my question which actually remains unanswered..

Which team(s) can win their last two games and get into the playoffs irregardless of who else wins/loses?

Thanks and kind regards.

Thanks for your kind attempt. I'm still not at the end of my search and question. I'd swear I heard the Ravens could win both of their last two games and get in no matter what, but it was talk. This is what started my interest(along with making betting decisions and travel plans). Happy Holidays.

Thanks for your kind reply. That's a start however it seems to imply winning this weekend vs needing to win both this and next as well as some conditional outcomes of other teams. What I thought was an easy question has turned into a bloody mess. If so much money wasn't on the line I wouldn't care, but I have to fly to the sportsbook, get a room, and avoid prostitutes in the bars.

It is easy to figure out. Take the playoff spots available, then take the top wild card teams and there you have it. If they are listed as a wild card right now that means they control their own destiny. It is possibe for lower ranked teams to make it but it means they win out and then get others to lose.
