Call it Super Sunday on the NFL schedule. There are several meetings of teams playoff bound or fighting for postseason berths in Week 15. Here are the five best:
5. Giants at Falcons, 1 p.m. » This is one of three games Sunday pitting division leaders. Atlanta (11-2) is closing in on the top seed in the NFC, while New York (8-5) is protecting a slim lead in the NFC East over Dallas (7-6) and Washington (7-6).
4. Packers at Bears, 1 p.m. » Cloudy and cold is the appropriate forecast for this battle of NFC North rivals. Thanks to an earlier win over Chicago (8-5), Green Bay (9-4) can clinch the division with a victory.
3. Steelers at Cowboys, 4:25 ?p.m. » No teams have won more Super Bowls than the Steelers (six) and Cowboys (five). This isn't a playoff elimination game yet for Pittsburgh (7-6) and Dallas, but the loser will have a more difficult path to the postseason.
2. Colts at Texans, 1 p.m. » Andrew Luck and Indianapolis (9-4) will take on Houston (11-2) twice in the last three weeks with a chance to win the AFC South. To make the second meeting relevant for the division, the Colts have to win here.
1. 49ers at Patriots, 8:20 p.m. ?» This one is intriguing because of the contrast in the teams and the personalities of the coaches. San Francisco (9-3-1) is trying to hold off Seattle (8-5) in the NFC West. New England (10-3) is battling for the top seed in the AFC.
