Expectations for Week 16 in the NFL

​WHAT TO LOOK FOR – WEEK 16

TERRIFIC TURNAROUNDS: The PHILADELPHIA EAGLES (NFC East, first-round bye), MINNESOTA VIKINGS (NFC North) and JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS (playoff berth) have clinched at least a playoff berth. All three teams finished in either third or fourth place in their divisions last year and missed the postseason.

Entering Week 16, five of the eight divisions have a team either in or tied for first place that finished in third or fourth place in the division last season.

This weekend, four clubs – the CAROLINA PANTHERSLOS ANGELES RAMSNEW ORLEANS SAINTS and TENNESSEE TITANS – have a chance to join Philadelphia, Minnesota and Jacksonville as teams who clinched a playoff spot after not qualifying for the postseason in 2016.

Since the 12-team playoff format was adopted in 1990, at least four teams have qualified for the playoffs in every season that were not in the postseason the year before.

Jacksonville can secure the AFC South division this weekend with a win or a Tennessee loss and join Philadelphia as teams to go from “worst-to-first” this season.

The teams to go from “worst-to-first” in their division since 2003:
