The NFL Playoff picture is getting interesting as we approach the part of the season where the best players rise to the occasion and force their teams over the line – both literally and figuratively. Fortunately for NFL hardcore fans and casuals alike, we have listed all you need to know about many of these players – indeed the top 50 in the NFL today – in Issue 2 of Touchdown magazine, available now.

Some of the players who may well prove pivotal in the NFL Playoff picture include:

Aaron Rodgers (Quarterback, Green Bay Packers)

Despite a slow start, Rodgers has hauled perennial contenders Green Bay into Playoff contention once again – they currently occupy one of the Wildcard spots in the highly competitive NFC after four straight victories. Rodgers is one of the best in the game right now and of all-time.

Odell Beckham Jr (Wide receiver, New York Giants)

One of the form teams in the NFL, the Giants occupy the other NFC Wildcard slot after winning eight of their last nine games and taking a repeat triumph over the Cowboys, who may be heading for the top seed in the conference. Beckham is their star player on offence and capable of magical plays – we interview him in Touchdown 2.

Ndamukong Suh (Defensive tackle, Miami Dolphins)

A rock-hard defender, Suh is a key part of a Miami Dolphins teams who are heading towards their first ‘winning’ season since 2008. Recently selected for his fifth Pro Bowl, Suh is on course to record his most tackles in a season and may have further cause for celebration if the ‘Fins navigate their way into the Playoffs – they sit just outside at time of writing.
