State of the Race: Eastern Conference

The playoff picture may start becoming clear this weekend. Toronto is up for elimination. Old Glory cannot be eliminated since they have a bye, but they’re also too far out to have a realistic shot. Both RUNY and ATL could take big steps toward the postseason. The RATLers could clinch next as early as next week if they pick up all 5 points this weekend and other results go their way. RUNY would need at least three weeks, but carry a game in hand over everyone except NOLA. For the Gold, this week is about putting pressure on the two teams at the top. New England has a week to get healthy and prep for their stretch run.
