We don't get any "Winner Reaches the Playoffs" storylines in Week 17 this year, but we do have a lot of "One Team has Clinched, One is Still Alive" and "Playing for Pride," plus a couple of "Two Teams Hanging By a Thread" games. One of these years, there's actually going to be a tie in Week 17, so all those "need X or tie" playoff scenarios will actually mean something. Also this week: Everyone in San Francisco loves their balls!

Possibly the closest Super Bowl matchup in history also poses the question: how much does it mean when certain aspects of an NFL team improve dramatically in the second half of the season?
