Week 17 of the NFL season is upon us, and many teams are squarely in the hunt for a berth in the postseason.

Entering Week 17, 18 teams remain in contention for a trip to Super Bowl XLVIII at MetLife Stadium. The 18 such teams ties for the fourth-most in Super Bowl contention with one week to play in NFL history (22 in 1982).

With one week remaining in the 2013 regular season, it has already been assured that at least  three teams will advance to the playoffs after missing the postseason in 2012 – Carolina Panthers (11-4), Kansas City Chiefs (11-4) and the eventual NFC East champion, Dallas Cowboys (8-7) or Philadelphia Eagles (9-6).

Since the 12-team playoff format was adopted in 1990, at least four teams have qualified for the playoffs in every season that were not in the postseason the year before.

First off, here’s the full slate of Week 17 games:
