The San Francisco 49ers are the lone team that has clinched a spot in the playoffs, but all of that could change in Week 15 of the 2023 NFL season. There are a handful of teams across the league that could clinch a postseason berth with a full slate of games on deck.

The 49ers are in contention to go even further with a victory over the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. If San Francisco secures the win or ties, they will have clinched the NFC West division title and a home playoff game. They will also clinch the division title with a Los Angeles Rams loss or tie.

The Baltimore Ravens, Dallas Cowboys, Detroit Lions and Philadelphia Eagles could all be in the postseason by the end of Monday. Here are the clinching scenarios for each team, per the NFL.
