Detroit is now tied with Green Bay for the lead in their division; four teams qualified for the postseason; and just two weeks remain to fill out the rest of the NFL playoffs field.

Here’s a recap of Week 15's action.

Detroit Lions One Win from Playoffs

The Detroit Lions control their own destiny to a playoff spot after winning in their last regular-season home game at Ford Field.

Matt Prater’s 33-yard field goal with 3 minutes, 38 seconds left gave host Detroit to a 16-14 win over the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday. The victory put the Lions into a first-place tie for the NFC North with Green Bay at 10-4.

Detroit trailed Minnesota 14-0 before rallying on the strength of two second-quarter interceptions and Prater's three field goals. Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford threw for 153 yards and a touchdown to Golden Tate.

Detroit has three in a row and can clinch a playoff spot with a win at Chicago next weekend.

Buffalo Bills Shock Green Bay Packers

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has played like Superman for the past two months, but he threw more like Clark Kent in a 21-13 road loss to the Bills on Sunday. Bacarri Rambo intercepted Rodgers on two straight second-half drives, and Buffalo (8-6) stayed in the AFC playoff hunt with a win over football’s hottest team.

Rodgers finished 17 of 42 for 185 yards and two interceptions. He had been picked off just three times this season coming into the game. Green Bay (10-4) had its five-game win streak snapped. The Packers fell out of first place when the Lions knocked off the Vikings later in the day.

Cincinnati Bengals Ruined Johnny Manziel’s First Start

Johnny Manziel's first game as the starter for the Browns was one he’d like to forget. The Bengals sacked “Johnny Football” three times en route to a 30-0 laugher over their AFC North/in-state rivals. Manziel finished 10 of 18 for an embarrassing 80 yards with two interceptions — and a third that was nullified because of a penalty.

Cincinnati (9-4-1) closed in on the division title, while Cleveland (7-7) suffered its fourth loss in five games. The Bengals defense pressured Manziel often and taunted him with his signature "money" gesture often. The Browns managed just 107 yards of offense in the game.

Dallas Cowboys Should Win The NFC East

The Cowboys tried to choke away another important game in December, but the Eagles found a better way to lose. After erasing a 21-0 deficit, Philly committed three second-half turnovers and lost 38-27. Dez Bryant caught three TD passes and Dallas (10-4) jumped ahead of Philadelphia (9-5) in the NFC East race with just two weeks to go in the regular season; the division title is now theirs to lose.

The Cowboy have a difficult home game against Indianapolis next Sunday, and they finish the season on the road against Washington. Since Dallas has lost a playoff spot on the last week of the season the past three years, most Cowboys' fans shouldn’t make any plans for January until they clinch.

Carolina Panthers Can Still Repeat In NFC South

Apparently no team wants to take charge of the NFC South race.

The Panthers remained alive to repeat as division champs when they knocked off the Buccaneers, 19-17. Carolina (5-8-1) won the game with backup quarterback Derek Anderson subbing in for Cam Newton, who was injured in a car crash earlier this week. Anderson beat Tampa Bay (2-12) for the second time this season.

If New Orleans (5-8) loses to Chicago on Monday night, the Panthers will take over sole possession of first place in the NFL’s weakest division, because Atlanta (5-9) lost to Pittsburgh (9-5) on Sunday.
