And down the stretch they come.The Cowboys already are in the playoffs. The Patriots and Seahawks almost certainly will qualify soon, too. Believe it or not, Raiders fans, your team is about to end its 13-season drought.As for the rest, well, the scramble is on. Heres whats ahead in the frantic final four weeks of an already unpredictable season:AFCIt would seem that the wild cards will come out of the West, by far the best division in football. Whether its Denver, Kansas City or Oakland, those teams will provide quite a test for the North or South winner in the first round of the postseason.Whoever wins the West almost certainly will have a first-round bye, too. After the Chiefs win Thursday night and their sweep of Oakland -- plus a win over Denver in their pocket -- they hold most of the cards in the division.It just shows how good our division is, Raiders quarterback Derek Carr says. I think its a cool thing, to be honest. I think its awesome. Competition brings the best out of everybody. Its been like that all year. Weve all been right there with each other and weve all been pushing each other. Its fun, man.Defending Super Bowl champ Denver (8-4) has the toughest road with games against Tennessee, New England, Kansas City and Oakland.The other bye figures to go to the Patriots -- no surprise there. It would be the seventh straight year New England was off for the first weekend of the playoffs.The other two divisions are murky, with the South a tossup.Houston has led the division all season, but is in the midst of a major swoon, its offense unreliable, its defense banged-up. Indianapolis has Andrew Luck back, and he could be a difference maker, but losing its best defender, linebacker DQwell Jackson to a four-game suspension, is damaging to a mediocre unit.Tennessee, a team to watch out for in 2017, must play Denver and Kansas City before finishing with the Jaguars and Texans.This is a four-game playoff to get to the playoffs, Texans coach Bill OBrien says.Houston, Indy and Tennessee all are 6-6. Will 8-8 be good enough to sneak off with the South -- and then get hammered by a wild-card team?As for dropping the hammer, thats the operating standard for the North, best personified by the Ravens and Steelers. Both are 7-5, both are hitting stride, and both face off Christmas night. Cant wait.NFCDallas has so separated itself from the rest of the conference that not only can it secure the East title with a win at the Giants on Sunday night, it also can nail down home-field advantage throughout the playoffs if Detroit and Seattle lose.Well let other people talk about those kinds of things, coach Jason Garrett says. The best thing this team has done is focus. We focus on one opponent at a time. We focus on one days preparation at a time. Well continue to do that.Lets pencil in the Cowboys as the top seed, then sit back and watch an intriguing race for the other bye between the Seahawks and Lions.Detroit (8-4) almost is as much a surprise as Dallas, but it hasnt yet convinced folks it will win the North. Its final three games are at the Giants and Cowboys, then hosting the Packers (6-6) on New Years Day. Green Bay won the first meeting, and Aaron Rodgers has been playing lights-out football for weeks.But give Detroit its due: No team has been more impressive in close games, Matthew Stafford is having his best season, and its plus-6 turnover margin is among the NFL leaders.The Packers, who must navigate through three divisional games to finish the schedule after hosting Seattle on Sunday, look more like a wild-card chaser.Seattle (8-3-1) might have the leagues most talented roster when everyone is healthy. Thats hardly the case now, and losing perennial All-Pro safety Earl Thomas for the rest of the season is damaging.The good news for the Seahawks is their offense, while streaky, has playmakers such as Russell Wilson -- also in the midst of an MVP-caliber year -- Jimmy Graham and Doug Baldwin, plus, at last, a threat at running back with Thomas Rawls return to the lineup.And the Seahawks have little reason to look behind them in the West.Atlanta (7-5) hadnt been looking in the rearview mirror since it took hold of the South at 4-1. Now it has been caught by Tampa Bay, and the Falcons have thrown away some games, making everyone wonder how much staying power they have.They do, however, have a huge edge in the remaining schedule. While they face the Rams, 49ers, Panthers and Saints (total record: 14-34), Tampa gets New Orleans twice, Carolina -- and Dallas.The wild-card race is such a jumble that diving deep into tiebreakers on Jan. 1 might be needed to settle things. The Giants (8-4) have the inside track, but also a difficult schedule (Cowboys, Lions, Redskins, Eagles) and a major injury with Jason Pierre-Paul done for 2016.Its possible the runner-up in the North and South, perhaps even the Cardinals or Vikings if they ever get things straightened out, will be alive beyond Christmas.The NFL sure must like a the more the merrier idea.---AP Sports Writer Schuyler Dixon contributed.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Vapormax Off White Noir . "I dont know that were close," said general manager Alex Anthopoulos. "I just think, right now, the acquisition cost just doesnt work for us right now. I dont know if I can quantify how far off or things like that that they might be but I would say we continue to have dialogue. Nike Vapormax Promo . "Hes going to have hip surgery on Jan. 7, and hell be expected to rehabilitate for four to six months beyond that," Canucks general manager Mike Gillis said Friday in an interview. http://www.vapormaxpluspascher.fr/vapormax-noir-pas-cher.html .com) - The red-hot Los Angeles Kings will try to extend their winning streak to a season-high seven games when they visit the Edmonton Oilers for Sundays clash at Rexall Place. Vapormax Plus Blanche Homme . Self was acquired from the Buffalo Bandits in a trade for Alex Hill midway through last season, and made his debut in Rochester on March 16, 2013. Acheter Vapormax Plus . Brandon Morrow allowed five runs on six hits over three innings. He struck out two, walked one and hit a batter. Edwin Encarnacion had a two-out, bases loaded two-RBI double in the third inning. Hawthorn coach Alastair Clarkson learnt the hard way in 2012 that an AFL sides form throughout the season counts for little in September.So Clarkson isnt fretting the Hawks have a few problems they must fix to contend for a record-equalling fourth consecutive premiership.Hawthorn dropped two of their final four games of the regular season, while they would have finished outside the top four if not for a one-point win over Collingwood in the last round.I refer back to 2012 and we played some of our best football that year that weve ever played (but it was) in home and away, Clarkson said on Tuesday.We got rolled in a grand final ... its important that youre playing your best footy at the right time of the year.Theres plenty of people lining up to write the Hawks off but we set ourselves a goal at the start of the year to win as many games as we could and get ourselves into the top four.Weve won 17 games this year, which is one more than year.Thats not to say Clarkson is in denial about on-field woes ahead of next Fridays qualifying final against Geelong at the MCG.We know what we need to do, at different stages we havent been pleased ... wed like to perform a little bit better than we have, he said.Well keep those internal but wwe got a lot of areas of our game (to work on).ddddddddddddWed like to think weve got some improvement in the way that we play all facets of the game.The return of injured big men Ben McEvoy and Ben Stratton should help in that regard.Ruckman McEvoy missed the Hawks final-round win over Collingwood because of a sore back.Hes still doing some recovery ... we expect hed be available to play, Clarkson said.But well just have to wait and see.Hopefully that settles well and he can get himself into the full program by early next week.Defender Stratton hasnt played since tearing his left pectoral muscle in the round-20 loss to Melbourne.We thought it was about a three-week injury. Hes missed those three so unless theres a hiccup wed expect him to play, Clarkson said.Skipper Luke Hodge declared his sides status as triple reigning premiers was irrelevant.The reason were back here is because every year we regroup, Hodge said.Weve put ourselves into another position to have a red-hot crack this year.Collingwood are the only club in VFL/AFL history to win four consecutive flags, a feat they achieved in 1927-30.
