The NFL kicks off its final full month of the 2020 regular season on Sunday, and we could have the first three playoff berths clinched by the end of Sunday. We have already seen the Jets and Jaguars eliminated from playoff contention, and Sunday could see two more teams eliminated. Scenarios below come courtesy of @NFLScenarios via Reddit.

Cincinnati Bengals

The Bengals would be eliminated with a loss to the Dolphins.

Upsets happen, but as 11.5-point underdogs, the Bengals would have to spring the biggest upset of the season to avoid elimination.

Los Angeles Chargers

The Chargers would be eliminated with a loss and Colts win or a loss and wins by the Raiders and Dolphins.

The Chargers are hosting the Patriots in Week 13 and are a one-point favorite in this one. The Colts are 3.5-point road favorites against the Texans, the Raiders are 8.5-point road favorites against the Jets, and as mentioned above, the Dolphins are huge favorites against the Bengals.
