Two games today feature likely playoff-bound teams from opposite conferences squaring off in contests that could help decide seeding on both sides of the postseason bracket.The late afternoon game on CBS should be a fun one with some offensive fireworks as the Pittsburgh Steelers visit the Big Easy to play the New Orleans Saints. Pittsburgh needs a win to realistically solidify itself as a playoff team, while the Saints can clinch home-field advantage in the NFC playoffs with a victory.On Sunday Night Football, Kansas City and Seattle square off with critical seeding implications for them as well. A win will keep the Chiefs on pace for home-field in the AFC, while Seattle needs a victory to seal up a Wild Card spot in the NFC. Should Seattle lose, the opportunity may be open for an NFC East team to sneak into the playoffs instead.Tune in for the games throughout the day and follow along here.Early GamesAll games kick off at 1:00 PM EasternAtlanta Falcons at Carolina PanthersBank of America StadiumCharlotte, NCFOXCincinnati Bengals at Cleveland BrownsFirstEnergy StadiumCleveland, OHCBSTampa Bay Buccaneers at Dallas CowboysAT&T StadiumArlington, TXFOXMinnesota Vikings at Detroit LionsFord FieldDetroit [url=http://www.greenbaypackersteamonline.com/dexter-williams-jersey]Dexter Williams Jersey[/url] , MIFOXNew York Giants at Indianapolis ColtsLucas Oil StadiumIndianapolis, INCBSJacksonville Jaguars at Miami DolphinsHard Rock StadiumMiami, FLCBSBuffalo Bills at New England PatriotsGillette StadiumFoxboro, MACBSGreen Bay Packers at New York JetsMetLife StadiumEast Rutherford, NJFOXHouston Texans at Philadelphia EaglesLincoln Financial FieldPhiladelphia, PACBSAfternoon GamesLos Angeles Rams at Arizona Cardinals2:05 PM MT (4:05 PM ET)State Farm StadiumGlendale, AZFOXChicago Bears at San Francisco 49ers1:05 PM PT (4:05 PM ET)Levi’s StadiumSanta Clara, CAFOXPittsburgh Steelers at New Orleans Saints3:25 PM CT (4:25 PM ET)Mercedes-Benz SuperdomeNew Orleans [url=https://www.thepackersfanshop.com/Vince-Biegel-Jersey]Vince Biegel Color Rush Jersey[/url] , LACBSSunday Night FootballKansas City Chiefs at Seattle Seahawks5:20 PM CT (8:20 PM ET)CenturyLink FieldSeattle, WANBC In what was largely a must-win game for both teams, the Minnesota Vikings defeated the Green Bay Packers 24-17 on Sunday night to keep pace for a wildcard berth. With the loss, Green Bay’s already-slim hopes dwindled further with the Packers falling to 4-6-1. The Packers almost certainly will need to win out and receive help, as Aaron Rodgers said himself in the post-game press conference, to make the postseason.As for the Vikings, they were able to “limbo” to victory behind a time of possession victory and maintain control of a wildcard playoff spot. A brutal upcoming two-week schedule will test Minnesota in its stretch run, beginning this week. Meanwhile [url=https://www.thepackersfanshop.com/Antonio-Morrison-Jersey]https://www.thepackersfanshop.com/Antonio-Morrison-Jersey[/url] , Thanksgiving Day football left Chicago and Detroit heading in opposite directions. The Bears were able to win even without their starting quarterback, while the Lions lost one of their few remaining offensive weapons to injury.A look at what the Lions can achieve over the final few weeks of the season, as well as a few individual pieces coming together for the Bears, is in today’s NFC North rundown.Chicago Bears (8-3)Won 23-16 at Detroit; Next at New York GiantsChicago Bears: Aaron Rodgers provides bulletin board materialAbout those post-game comments from Rodgers...they could provide some motivation for the Bears in a few weeks when the Packers roll into Soldier Field.4 takeaways from Bears’ Thanksgiving win over LionsMitchell Trubisky’s fill-in was one of a number of things that went Chicago’s way in a tough Thanksgiving win in Detroit.DL Hicks a cornerstone of Chicago Bears defenseKhalil Mack, Kyle Fuller, and Eddie Jackson receive many headlines from week to week, but another defensive star is flying under the radar, much like Mike Daniels in Green Bay.Minnesota Vikings (6-4-1)Won 24-17 vs. Green Bay; Next at New England3 Stats That Stood Out: Packers at VikingsA wide gap in time of possession was one of three instrumental keys to Minnesota’s win over Green Bay.The Vikings weren’t the first football team to do an innovative limbo touchdown celebrationThe most memorable celebration from Sunday night may have actually been seen before...in the CFL.Minnesota Vikings enter tough stretch with fuel from victory over Green Bay PackersWith matchups against New England and Seattle awaiting them [url=https://www.thepackersfanshop.com/Quinten-Rollins-Jersey]Quinten Rollins Jersey[/url] , the Vikings gained some momentum on Sunday as they avoided both a major injury and offensive turnovers.Detroit Lions (4-7)Lost 23-16 vs. Chicago; Next vs. Los Angeles RamsLions enter tough balance of playing in 2018 and for 2019For all intents and purposes, Detroit’s 2018 season is over. But here are three things that can help the Lions get ahead for the 2019 season by finishing out the current one.Detroit Lions put Marvin Jones on IR, leaving WR corps in shamblesThe Lions’ thin receiving corps after the trade of Golden Tate got thinner after their top receiver’s season came to a close on Monday.Matthew Stafford isn’t the problem for the Detroit LionsLike Rodgers, Stafford has received his fair share of the blame for the Lions’ underwhelming season. But offensive playcalling played a significant role in Detroit’s most recent loss.
