About time to start counting magic and tragic numbers now, right? I do believe that this past weekend's results have officially eliminated KC from the playoffs. With 5 games left, their maximum point total is 11+15=26, which would put them in a three-way-tie with the current totals of WAS and HOU for the sixth and final playoff spot - but keeping both WAS and HOU on 26 points means WAS loses a future match to NJY, putting NJY on 28pts and officially blocking KC out of the playoffs. LOU is far from eliminated, even after losing to HOU this weekend, but they have been eliminated from a first-round bye. With the middle of the table as crammed as it is, there's no way to tell who else on track for a first-round home match or not, but it's worth starting to consider how close POR (and RGN) are to clinching at least 4th and maybe even at least 2nd. I believe I heard talk that POR could have clinched a top 4 spot this past weekend, but CHI thankfully put a short pause on that. POR has at least already clinched a playoff spot, and RGN's magic number is 2 I believe.
