Following Oakland's win on Sunday, the first overall pick is down to just two teams, but the order is far from settled with only one week to go.

Following Week 16, we are down to two teams in the running for the No. 1 pick in the 2015 NFL Draft. That would be the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Tennessee Titans, the only teams with two wins this season. Sure, they could both win next weekend and have the same number of wins as the Jacksonville Jaguars, New York Jets and Oakland Raiders, but strength of schedule tiebreakers will keep them ahead in the draft order.

Strength of schedule is the first tiebreaker for teams with the same record. Although Minnesota and Atlanta currently have the same record and strength of schedule, the Vikings have a worse conference record and get the higher pick.

The team to watch for Week 17 is Washington. If the Jaguars, Jets and Raiders happen to win albeit unlikely Washington could rise up to the third pick with a loss. Dont discount Tampa Bay being able to beat New Orleans next week, either. In Week 5, the two teams went to overtime in New Orleans before the Saints won, 37-31.

The Saints are one of five NFC teams with a 6-9 record. The draft order is far from settled.

A loss could push us as far as 6th and win could push us to a super bowl.

we cannot get to #6 as Redskins are at six with 4 wins. Bears are currently at #7 with 5 wins. If we lost and they won (both doubtful) we would move ahead of Bears to #7 because their SOS is harder than ours (assuming it stayed static).

Sunday shapes up as a "win/win" - either we make the playoffs or get a top 10 pick.

Truthfully, the only thing better than this scenario is having a bye. The situation we are in is much better than a team like the Eagles. It's better than battling for a wild card game where you have to go on the road in the playoffs for sure. That being said, being 6-9 doesn't feel all that great, lol.
