Down to the Wire - Close Races

As we enter the final week of the regular season, 72 of 196 division races are still not settled.  Many of these pennant races are very tight - 3 games or less - and we highlight them below.

 

Entering Week 25, the teams have just 6 division games left to play - and teams must make a late move now.

 

If any divisions end in a tie - there is a 1-game playoff to determine the winner.
