Week #14 – Crucial Games in the AFC Conference

1 – JFF Pittsburgh Steelers AT JFF Cincinnati Bengals 3.0 Stars

What’s at stake for the JFF Steelers: DMan and his JFF Pittsburgh Steelers need to win one of their three human user vs. human user contests to guarantee themselves a playoff berth in the AFC Conference playoffs. Also, if Pittsburgh can split with Cincinnati, they could possibly steal away the AFC North Division title from Cincinnati.

What’s at stake for the JFF Bengals: Right now, Shane’s JFF Cincinnati Bengals occupy the #1 Seed in the AFC Conference playoff seeding, and if they win both of their games against Pittsburgh as well as knock off Kory G’s JFF Denver Broncos in Week Sixteen, they will guarantee themselves the #1 Seed and home-field advantage throughout the AFC Conference playoffs.

2 – JFF Buffalo Bills AT JFF Denver Broncos 2.5 Stars

What’s at stake for the JFF Bills: This game is very, very crucial to the AFC East Division title hopes and overall playoff hopes for Air Attack’s JFF Buffalo Bills. The JFF Bills must win at least two of their last three human user vs. human user games to ensure themselves a chance at the AFC East Division title and the #3 Seed or #4 Seed in the AFC Conference playoffs. If they lose all three of their remaining human vs. human games, Buffalo could actually be eliminated from JFF playoffs contention altogether.

What’s at stake for the JFF Broncos: Kory G’s JFF Denver Broncos only have two human user vs. human user games remaining: vs. Buffalo (Week Fourteen) and AT Cincinnati (Week Sixteen). Denver’s chances of winning the AFC West Division title are slim and none, but by winning against both Buffalo and Cincinnati, they would solidify their chances of earning the #5 Seed in the AFC Conference playoffs. Even if Denver loses both of their human games, they are guaranteed to earn no lower than the #6 Seed in the AFC Conference playoffs due to their victories over Indianapolis and New England.

Week #15 – Crucial Games in the AFC Conference

JFF Houston Texans AT JFF Indianapolis Colts 4.5 stars

What’s at stake for the JFF Texans: If there are two teams in the AFC Conference that need each and every win that they can possibly earn, it is Houston and New England – because currently, they are the only two teams in the AFC Conference that have as many as five losses. Deuce’s JFF Houston Texans absolutely, positively need to defeat Champ’s JFF Indianapolis Colts in their rematch game to maintain at least an outside chance of earning the #6 Seed in the AFC Conference playoffs. If Houston loses to Indianapolis, they will be eliminated from JFF playoffs contention.

What’s at stake for the JFF Colts: Champ’s JFF Indianapolis Colts want to earn no lower than the #3 Seed in the AFC Conference playoffs, and possibly move up to as high as the #2 Seed in the Conference if Cincinnati and/or Kansas City stumble in their last couple of human user vs. human user contests. If Indianapolis loses to Houston, and they lose to Dallas in Week Sixteen, then the JFF Colts could drop down to the #4 Seed in the AFC Conference Playoffs.

Week #14 – Crucial Games in the NFC Conference

1 – JFF Dallas Cowboys AT JFF Chicago Bears 4.0 Stars

What’s at stake for the JFF Cowboys: Three of the last four Regular Season games for Cliff’s JFF Dallas Cowboys are human user vs. human user games; Dallas must win two of those three games in order to clinch the NFC East Division and earn no lower than the #4 Seed in the NFC Conference playoffs.

What’s at stake for the JFF Bears: Que’s JFF Chicago Bears absolutely, positively need to win this match-up with the JFF Dallas Cowboys if they want to stay ahead of the JFF Washington Redskins for the #5 or #6 Seed in the NFC Conference playoffs.

Week #14 – Important Inter-Conference Games

JFF Arizona Cardinals AT JFF Kansas City Chiefs 2.5 Stars

What’s at stake for the JFF Cardinals: This is a HUGE inter-conference match-up for Damian’s JFF Arizona Cardinals if they hope to lay claim to the NFC West Division title. If the JFF Cardinals lose this game, they are still guaranteed no lower than the #5 Seed in the NFC Conference playoffs, but they would all but lose their chance at stealing away the NFC West Division title from Cadillac’s JFF Seattle Seahawks.

What’s at stake for the JFF Chiefs: Because of their huge victory over Kory G’s JFF Denver Broncos in Week Thirteen, Shady’s JFF Kansas City Chiefs have pretty much clinched the AFC West Division title and no lower than the #3 Seed in the AFC Conference playoffs. Kansas City needs to win this game to keep their hopes alive of moving from the #2 Seed to the #1 Seed in the AFC.

Week #15 – Important Inter-Conference Games

JFF Green Bay Packers AT JFF Buffalo Bills 2.0 Stars

What’s at stake for the JFF Packers: Tim Dog’s JFF Green Bay Packers have already clinched the NFC North Division title, and are currently the only undefeated team in the league. If they defeat Buffalo in Week Fifteen and Tampa Bay in Week Sixteen, they would clinch the #1 Seed in the NFC Conference playoffs and earn home-field advantage throughout the NFC Conference playoffs.

What’s at stake for the JFF Bills: This is almost a “must win” contest for Air and his JFF Buffalo Bills, especially if they want to end the season as AFC East Division Champions rather than a #5 Seed or #6 Seed Wild-Card team. Buffalo has to win at least two of their last three human user vs. human user games in order to capture the AFC East title, and they have to win at least one of their last three human user vs. human user games in order to claim a definite Wild-Card spot.
