N.F.L. Divisional Round: Our Picks Against the Spread

Green Bay and Tennessee will have the benefit of a week’s rest against San Francisco and Cincinnati. Buffalo and Kansas City will provide tougher tests for each other after coasting last week. The Bucs and the Rams’ veteran quarterbacks will take center stage.

What We Learned in the N.F.L.’s Wild-Card Round

The 49ers and Jimmy Garoppolo managed their game plan just well enough to upset the Cowboys, but blowouts in the rest of the wild-card matchups showed the folly of playoff expansion.

How Sunday’s Games Affect the NFL Playoff Picture

The Eagles ran up against the Buccaneers’ fearsome defense. Now the 49ers and Cowboys will square off ahead of the Steelers and Kansas City in prime time.

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.

What We Learned From Week 17 in the N.F.L.

A Tom Brady-Bill Belichick Super Bowl? It’s Inevitable.

Thanks to the New England Patriots’ six-game win streak and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ light schedule, the pair seem to be on a collision course.
