NFL Playoff Picture Bracket 2022-23 Following Week 17


The 2022 NFL Playoffs are quickly approaching and the battle for seeding is heating up. There have been tons of exciting games so far, including plenty of surprises. Now that we are through 17 weeks of the season, the playoff picture is really starting to take shape.

Things are a little different this week with the suspension of the Bills vs Bengals Week 17 game. There is no concrete plan to finish or make up the game yet, but it does hold potentially crucial playoff implications. The league will have to decide how that is all handled in the wake of the devastating Demar Hamlin injury. For now, Buffalo and the NFL world are focused on his health and recovery.

Obviously, a lot can happen in the last week of the season, but the picture is starting to become clearer.

Every week at The Duel we will update the playoff bracket to what it would look like if the season were to end that day.
