Only one of these teams will prove us wrong.

N.F.L. Week 18 Picks Against the Spread

Division rivalries should decide playoff seeding as the Eagles host the Cowboys, the 49ers try to extend their win streak to six against the Rams, and the Chargers and Raiders play the weekend’s only true elimination game.

This Is the N.F.L. Season That Ran Too Long

The N.F.L.’s final-week schedule usually builds to a Sunday night crescendo. But with only one true elimination game, Week 18’s bloat should feel anticlimactic.

How Week 18 Could Shape the N.F.L. Playoff Picture

In the N.F.C., Green Bay has clinched the bye, but a divisional race and a wild-card spot are still up for grabs. In the A.F.C., things are messier.

Inside the Mind of Kyler Murray

He is the N.F.L.’s Gatsby, mysterious and magnetic, with a brain hard-wired to win. Ask him about the touchdown pass he meticulously mapped out in his mind five days before he threw it.

The Arizona Cardinals Have Another Hot Start. This One’s Different.

Kyler Murray is healthy and has the 4-0 Arizona Cardinals leading the N.F.L. in points and yards. By a few important measures, the team looks better suited to avoid last season’s collapse.
