The NFL has moved two pivotal Week 18 games to next Saturday.
Following the Baltimore Ravens-Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday night game, the NFL announced that the Kansas City Chiefs and Las Vegas Raiders will play at 4:30 p.m. EST on Saturday. Then at 8:15 p.m. EST, the Jacksonville Jaguars and Tennessee Titans will square off for the AFC South division title.
In the final weeks of the regular season, the NFL will often shift some games over to Saturdays. For the final week of every regular season, the league will also change game times depending on which ones carry major playoff implications.
On Monday night, the Cincinnati Bengals will host the Buffalo Bills. If the Bengals win, they’ll clinch the AFC North for a second straight year. Otherwise, their Week 18 showdown with the Baltimore Ravens will determine the division winner, with the loser being a wild card team.
The Green Bay Packers and Detroit Lions will meet at Lambeau Field on Sunday in a game that also holds giant playoff implications. If the Packers win, they’ll make the playoffs. Detroit needs a win and a Seattle Seahawks loss to end its six-year postseason drought.
Elsewhere, the Miami Dolphins, New England Patriots and Pittsburgh Steelers all enter Week 18 with identical 8-8 records. Those three will vie for the final AFC wild card berth. The Patriots control their own destiny, needing only a win to sneak in.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
