remaining playoff spots in the National Football Conference looks too complicated to figure look at it this way most of the confusion could be cleared up before Sunday by the Los Angeles Rams and New York To the naked things look hopelessly particularly in the NFC where the Washington Redskins lead with a 105 record and the Dallas Cowboys and Louis Cardinals are a game behind at 9 Along with the who are they will get the NFCs three remaining playoff berths along with San Francisco and champions of the West and But the Rams and Giants can make things The Rams play at San Francisco Friday night in a game to be televised nationally by ABC and can clinch a wildcard spot if they If that the 96 Giants can win the other NFC wildcard berth if they beat the New Orleans Saints on leaving only the NFC East title to be decided in Sundays game in Washington between the Redskins and the the winner of that game would be the division the loser would be out of the The AFC is Miami is the East champion Pittsburgh or Cincinnati will win the and either Seattle or Denver will win the West with the loser joining the Los Angeles Raiders as a wildcard But the NFC is so muddled that nearly 24 hours after Sundays the league office still was trying to confirm all the possibilities involving the Cowboys and Heres the breakdown NFC The San Francisco have clinched the West title and any homefield advantage for the The Chicago are the Central Division champions and but cannot get a homefield The other three playoff berths will be decided among four NFC East teams and the The best way to sort them out is ST 96 If the Cardinals beat the Redskins theyre the NFC East champion based on a 62 division record if they theyre out because theyre 105 The Redskins edged the Cowboys 3028 Sunday to take over the division If they beat the Cards they win the division based on their 11 5 Even with a loss to the the Redskins could still be a wild Should the Giants Washington earns a If the Giants the Redskins would still make the playoffs if Dallas loses to NEW 96 The who lost to the Cardinals 3121 cannot win the But they can get a wildcard berth by beating New Orleans if the Rams beat the 49ers or if the Cardinals and Cowboys both The Giants could also lose and get the wild card if Dallas and Louis lose because if all three are 97 the Giants have the best combined record against the other 96 Like the the Cowboys cant win the division But they can earn a wildcard if they beat Miami and the Rams lose to San If that Motta calls for testing of all NBA staff they eliminate the Giants regardless of thi outcome of their game with New Of If the Rams beat the the Cowboys caw still get a wild card if they beat the Dolphins and the Giants and Cardinals LOS 105 The Rams can clinch the wild card and the homefield fof the playoff game by beating the 49ers Friday If they they can still eafn the wild card if either Dallas or Louis AFC Both Denver and Seattle are 123 and the winner of their game at Seattle Sunday wins the AFC If the Broncos are the wild theyll be at home against the Raiders if its the theyll play at Los Angeles unless the Raiders lose one of their two remaining Monday night at Detroit or Sunday at home against If beats Buffalo at home and the 87 Steelers lose to the then Cincinnati wins the Central Division because it has the better intradivision If Pittsburgh wins or or both teams then Pittsburgh is the DALLAS AP Dick head coach of the Dallas has called on the National Basketball Association to stiffen its drug policy by allowing teams to make random spotchecks that would reveal if players are using The only way a kid can be tested now is to almost be Motta If I go to the and I say I suspect a player has a they Do you have any proof I just
