NFL scores and results: Playoff spots up for grabs in Week 16
A ton of teams can cement their spot in the postseason on Sunday.
So much football, so many playoff implications.
Nearly every game on Sunday will affect the postseason, but perhaps the most significant is the Sunday night showdown between the Cardinals and Seahawks. Arizona clinches the NFC West with a win, but a Seattle victory keeps the door open for the defending champs to nab it.
It’s also a big day for the tightly-contested AFC North. The Bengals are clinging to a half-game lead over both the Ravens (who play Texans) and Steelers (who play the Chiefs), so a win from either would put immense pressure on Cincy to beat the Broncos on Monday night.
The awful NFC South race could come to a close if the Saints can down the Falcons in New Orleans and the Panthers fall to Johnny Manziel and the Browns.
Later in the afternoon, the Cowboys have a chance to wrap up the NFC East with a win over the Colts. Thanks to an Eagles loss on Saturday, Dallas can still afford a loss as long as they follow it up with a win over Washington in Week 17.
