For many NFL teams, the 2022 playoff race has already begun to heat up. For others, though, it’s largely time to look ahead to the 2023 offseason.

Of course, even teams with no shot at the playoffs this year still have to finish out the 2022 schedule. Some will undoubtedly be jockeying for draft positioning, but some of them will relish the chance to play spoiler.

We saw the Indianapolis Colts and Houston Texans nearly pull it off over the weekend, and the Jacksonville Jaguars did spoil things for the Dallas Cowboys with a stunning overtime victory on Sunday. Dallas will have to wait another week to secure a postseason ticket.

As of Sunday, the San Francisco 49ers, Philadelphia Eagles, Buffalo Bills, Kansas City Chiefs and Minnesota Vikings have clinched playoff berths. However, multiple postseason spots are up for grabs, and both the AFC and NFC No. 1 seeds are up for grabs. Those spots won’t be decided by the teams vying for them alone. The opposition—regardless of its record—can still throw a proverbial wrench into playoff hopefuls’ plans.

Here, we’ll examine seven teams that are poised to play the role of spoiler over the final three weeks. We’ll dive into why they can pull off a surprising upset or two and which games they should be circling for that spoiler opportunity.

Teams are listed in alphabetical order.

Atlanta Falcons

Technically, the Atlanta Falcons remain in play for the NFC South title. However, Atlanta’s decision to turn to rookie quarterback Desmond Ridder—a decision that was announced before previous starter Marcus Mariota decided to undergo season-ending surgery—suggests that Atlanta is looking ahead.

However, this doesn’t mean that the Falcons won’t wreck the playoff plans of the Baltimore Ravens and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Baltimore is on the schedule for Week 16, while the Buccaneers will visit Atlanta for the season finale.

The Falcons can potentially beat both playoff hopefuls by utilizing their creative and physical running attack. Atlanta’s ability to move the ball on the ground—it came into Week 15 ranked fourth in rushing and fifth in yards per carry—has confounded several opponents this season.

Atlanta beat the Seattle Seahawks, who are clinging on to fading playoff hopes, back in Week 3. In Week 6, the Falcons rocked the newly crowned NFC West champion San Francisco 49ers in a 28-14 blowout.

Ridder, who threw for 97 yards and logged 38 rushing yards in Sunday’s loss to the New Orleans Saints, can play the same game manager role that Mariota did during Atlanta’s earlier upset victories.

With the tandem of Cordarrelle Patterson and Tyler Allgeier capable of chewing up yards on the ground—the Falcons have topped 100 rushing yards in every game but one this season—no team is truly safe from the upset against Atlanta.
