The month of December is upon us. And with it is the month of judgement in the National Football League.
For teams that are 6-5, 5-6 or even 4-7 (N.Y. Jets this means you), it is now or never time. To paraphrase a quote from NFL Network’s Scott Hansen, this is time of the year when “losses become wins, and wins become losses.”
In other words, who is going to step up and make that six week push toward the postseason? Is there a team we aren’t talking about right now that makes the playoffs? Will someone choke away a playoff spot that seemed destined weeks ago? We will begin to find out.
