After Monday night's game between Carolina and Washington, there are now two games left in the regular season for every NFL team.
So far we've got four teams already in the postseason and plenty more who need the final two weeks to make or break their season. Here's where we stand at the moment.

AFC #1 seed: New England Patriots (12-2)
The Patriots clinched their eighth straight AFC East title and a first-round bye with a 16-3 win over Denver on Sunday.

AFC #2 seed: Oakland Raiders (11-3)
The Raiders are back in the playoffs for the first time in 14 years. Oakland's 19-16 win over San Diego clinched a postseason berth for the team, which will spend the next two weeks trying to lock down an AFC West title, a first-round bye and -- if the Patriots slip up -- maybe even home-field advantage for the playoffs.
AFC #3 seed: Pittsburgh Steelers (9-5)
It wasn't their best showing, but the Steelers did enough in the second half to maintain their one-game lead in the AFC North with a 24-20 win over the Bengals.
Next up? A potential battle for the AFC North crown on Christmas Day versus Baltimore.
AFC #4 seed: Houston Texans (8-6)
On one hand, Texans QB Brock Osweiler finally played so terribly that the team had no choice but to bench him. On the other, the Texans still managed to beat the Jaguars and hold a slight tiebreaker in the AFC South over the fellow 8-6 Tennessee Titans.
Who would have imagined that the most exciting Week 17 game might end up being a winner-take-all battle for the AFC South title between Houston and Tennessee?

AFC #5 seed: Kansas City Chiefs (10-4)
The Chiefs gave away the division advantage they earned last week vs. Oakland with a 19-17 loss to the upstart Titans. The Chiefs are still in a good spot to make the playoffs, but it's not looking as certain that they'll get any of those postseason games at Arrowhead.

AFC #6 seed: Miami Dolphins (9-5)
The Dolphins didn't miss Ryan Tannehill as Matt Moore threw four touchdown passes in a 34-13 win over the Jets on Saturday night.
Miami now owns sole control of the final AFC wild-card spot with matchups against Buffalo and New England still on the schedule.
AFC #7 seed: Baltimore Ravens (8-6)
The Ravens held off a last-second two-point conversion attempt to pull out a tight win over the Eagles and stay in the hunt for both the AFC North title and final AFC wild-card spot.
They'll likely need a crucial win over Pittsburgh on Christmas Day to keep their chances for both alive.
AFC #8 seed: Tennessee Titans (8-6)
The Titans hold a head-to-head tiebreaker over the fellow 8-6 Denver Broncos in the wild-card chase. Thanks to an earlier loss to the fellow 8-6 Texans, the Titans will likely see their Week 17 rematch decide the AFC South title.
NFC #1 seed: Dallas Cowboys (12-2)
With a 26-20 win over Tampa Bay Sunday night, the only way the Cowboys won't own home-field advantage in the NFC playoffs will be for them to lose their final two games while the Giants win both of theirs.
NFC #2 seed: Seattle Seahawks (9-4-1)
The Seahawks' 24-3 win over the Rams on Thursday night clinched their third NFC West title in four seasons. Now the only mystery over the next two weeks will be whether they can earn a first-round bye in the NFC playoffs.

NFC #3 seed: Atlanta Falcons (9-5)
The Falcons hold a tiebreaker over the Lions in win percentage in common games, vaulting them to the three seed at the moment.
While that placement is nice, getting a little breathing room in the NFC South thanks to Dallas' 26-20 win over the Bucs is an even better development to come out of Week 15 for Atlanta.
NFC #4 seed: Detroit Lions (9-5)
Sweating yet, Lions fans? Detroit now leads Green Bay in the NFC North by only one game and faces a tough matchup in Dallas next Monday night before a Week 17 rematch with the Packers.
NFC #5 seed: New York Giants (10-4)
The Giants keep on rolling, knocking off eight wins in their last nine games. They might not be the most exciting team (outside of Odell Beckham, Jr.), but they're starting to look like one you wouldn't want to face in January.

NFC #6 seed: Tampa Bay Buccaneers (8-6)
The Bucs gave Dallas a tough go Sunday night but still came up short. Fortunately, they jumped back into the final NFC wild-card position just 24 hours later when Carolina beat Washington on Monday night.
NFC #7 seed: Green Bay Packers (8-6)
The Packers now find themselves very much in the hunt for an NFC wild-card spot and the NFC North title. Wins against Minnesota and Detroit the next two weeks would give them the latter.
NFC #8 seed: Washington Redskins (7-6-1)
Monday's loss to the Panthers means the Redskins weren't able to hold on to their half-game lead for the final NFC wild-card spot. They'll likely need to win out and get some help along the way over the next two weeks to get it back.
