There’s still a lot to be determined regarding the NFL playoff picture in Week 17 of the 2017 NFL season. Three of the four wild-card berths have yet to be clinched, and six teams are fighting for those spots.

The Atlanta Falcons, Baltimore Ravens and Tennessee Titans all control their own destiny Sunday afternoon. Each team will reach the playoffs with a win. The Seattle Seahawks, Los Angeles Chargers and Buffalo Bills need to win and get some help in order to reach the postseason because of tiebreaker scenarios.

It’s pretty simple over in the NFC. The Falcons are the No.6 seed with a win. The Seahawks get in with a victory and a loss by Atlanta. The two teams share the same 9-6 record, but Atlanta owns the tiebreaker because they defeated Seattle last month.

The AFC is a little more complicated. If either the No.5 seed Ravens or No.6 seed Titans lose, it will open up the opportunity for the Chargers or Bills to reach the playoffs.

There are a few scenarios that get L.A. in the playoffs with a win over the Oakland Raiders. Losses by both the Titans and Bills would do it, as would a Tennessee loss or tie and a Baltimore win or tie.

For Buffalo, a win over the Miami Dolphins and a loss by Baltimore would get them in the playoffs. A Bills’ victory would also get them a wild-card spot if the Chargers and Titans both lose or tie. If Buffalo ties Miami, they need L.A. and Tennessee to both lose.

If the Ravens lose, they are in with a loss or tie by either the Bills or Titans. If Tennessee loses to Jacksonville, they need losses by both Buffalo and L.A.

The NFC North is the only division that still hasn’t been clinched. The New Orleans Saints and Carolina Panthers have the same record entering Week 17, though New Orleans owns the tiebreaker.

That means the Panthers need a win over the Falcons and either a loss or a tie by the Saints to win the division. If Carolina wins, they can potentially earn the NFC’s No.2 seed, though that would still be difficult. The Minnesota Vikings will clinch the No.2 seed with a win or tie, a Carolina loss or tie, a New Orleans win or a victory by the L.A. Rams.

The Philadelphia Eagles have clinched home-field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs. The New England Patriots and Pittsburgh Steelers are tied for the AFC’s best record in Week 17, though the defending champs own the tiebreaker.

The Jaguars and Chiefs have nothing on the line in Week 17. The Rams will either get the No.3 or No.4 seed, depending upon Sunday's results.
