The end of the New England Patriots’ seven-game winning streak tells us at least one thing about the wild AFC playoff race: We’ll depart Week 15 with a different AFC leader than we began it with. Their lead in the AFC North is down to one game, and while the FPI is still bullish on their playoff chances, it sure doesn’t feel like the Ravens are a playoff team at the moment. Buffalo Bills
In a matter of weeks, the Bills have gone from the top of the AFC East to barely clinging to a playoff spot. Los Angeles Rams
The Rams are now within one game of the NFC West lead. The Cardinals are still the heavy favorite, as the Rams have a 10.3% chance to capture the division, per the FPI, but the win increased Los Angeles’ chances of making the playoffs to nearly 99%. The Rams’ remaining schedule is tough and includes three opponents who are pushing for playoff spots, but Monday night’s effort showed they are up to the challenge.
