The Minnesota Vikings eliminated themselves by winning their third game, 33-26 at Washington. Because their schedule was stronger than either the Colts or the Rams played, the Vikings can't select first even if all three teams finish 3-13.

The Colts remain the front-runners, and if they lose at Jacksonville (4-11) next Sunday, they will have the No. 1 pick. The Rams would land the No. 1 spot if Indianapolis wins and they lose at home to the San Francisco 49ers.
