NFL playoff chances: Steelers, Panthers sliding; Cowboys, Seahawks climbing | NFL

Only four weeks remain in the 2018 NFL regular season, and the playoff race is getting hotter, especially the last wild card spot in the AFC.

Right now Baltimore has the strongest grip with its 7-5 record and with home games remaining against Cleveland and Tampa Bay. Denver also has a favorable schedule, but due to an early loss to Baltimore, the Broncos need to run the table. Indianapolis, Miami and Tennessee need to win at least three games and get help from others.

In the NFC, Philadelphia, Minnesota and spiraling Carolina are in the mix for the last playoff spot. Dallas has played well recently and is on its way to the NFC East title.

AccuScore has used data from the first 13 weeks of the 2018 season and simulated every remaining game. Updated playoff chances are below.
