It's probably been active a few weeks but I'm old and I forget.

Here's my projection.  It's mostly pessimistic and includes the Patriots deliberately tanking in week 17 to help the Dolphins make the playoffs.

AFC

  1. Oakland Raiders (14-2)
  2. New England Patriots (13-3)
  3. Pittsburgh Steelers (11-5)
  4. Houston Texans (9-7)
  5. Miami Dolphins (10-6)
  6. Kansas City Chiefs (10-6)

NFC

  1. Dallas Cowboys (13-3)
  2. Seattle Seahawks (12-3-1)
  3. Atlanta Falcons (11-5)
  4. Detroit Lions (11-5)
  5. Washington Redskins (10-5-1)
  6. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (10-6)

AFC

  1.  Pats
  2.  Chiefs
  3.  Ravens
  4.  Houston
  5.  Raiders
  6.  Steelers
NFC
  1. Cowboys
  2. Seahawks
  3. Falcons (this assumes they win out vs SF/CAR/NO)
  4. Lions(assumes they lose to green bay)
  5. Redskins
  6. Bucs.  (bucks vs. Flacons! ack! )
Just as they say Packers can win out and miss the playoffs.
