Of the most meaningful games in this, the final week of the regular season: if the New York Jets defeat the Buffalo Bills and their ex-coach Rex Ryan, they automatically clinch a playoff spot; the Pittsburgh Steelers will be rooting for the Bills to win and they hope to defeat the Browns in Cleveland to earn playoff entry; if the Houston Texans defeat the Jacksonville Jaguars, they win the AFC South and get a home game in the following week’s wild card playoffs; or, if the Indianapolis Colts beat the Tennessee Titans, they’ll be rooting for the Jaguars and hoping for extra help with several other scenarios for them to win the AFC South over Houston.
On NBC’s “Sunday Night Football”, the NFC North division lead will be up for grabs as the Minnesota Vikings head into Green Bay to face the Packers.
