Should Dallas rest its players and just head to Tampa next week? They were embarrassed in Week 1 by the Bucs 19-3 in one of the more inexplicable results of the season, in hindsight.
Vikings at Bears
The Vikings are incentivized to lose this game and get the three seed so they can play the Giants next week.
Ravens at Bengals
The Bengals can win this game and have to play the Ravens again next week. They could also lose this game and play the AFC South winner on the road. Realistically though, if the Bengals lose to the Bills, then the winner of this game will host the loser in the playoffs. Right now, the Bengals Super Bowl futures odds are +800 and the Ravens are +2700.
Chargers at Broncos
Chargers-Jaguars would actually be a sneaky good first round game.
Chiefs at Raiders
Feels like the Raiders have been playing harder than the Chiefs these past few weeks.
Browns at Steelers
The Steelers need to win this game (likely), and they need the Patriots to lose to the Bills (very possible) and the Dolphins to lose to the Jets (not happening even if Skylar Thompson starts).
Giants at Eagles
A Giants-Cowboys playoff game would be a delight. There’s never been a bigger lock for the Sunday late game on Wild Card weekend. The Eagles are a whopping -13.5 point favorites over the Giants, who are locked into the sixth seed.
Rams at Seahawks
The Seahawks will complain if the Packers-Lions game is on Sunday night, which would mean the Lions are eliminated if the Seahawks win earlier that day. Simple solution: no one tell Dan Campbell.
Jets at Dolphins
It’s easy to hate on the Dolphins, but other than the 49ers, who can win with a third string QB? Save your hate for the Jets who gave up on the season three weeks ago.
Patriots at Bills
If New England wins, this game could be a playoff preview.
Titans at Jaguars
The Titans are so bad the league refused to flex this game despite it being the obvious choice as a win-and-in game.
