A playoff berth is at stake as AFC South rivals Indianapolis Colts and Tennessee Titans square off in the final game of the 2018 NFL regular season on “Sunday Night Football” (Dec. 30 at 8:20 p.m. ET on NBC). The Colts soundly defeated the Titans 38-10 in Indianapolis on Nov. 18 (Week 11), but the Titans enter this game on a four-game winning streak. If the Houston Texans lose to the Jacksonville Jaguars earlier in the day (Dec. 30 at 1:00 p.m. ET on CBS in Houston and Jacksonville), the Colts-Titans winner will vie for the AFC South division title and a home game in the playoffs. If the Texans win, Colts-Titans winner will vie for an AFC wild card spot. The loser of Colts-Titans will be eliminated from playoff contention.
Also on Dec. 30:
• The Minnesota Vikings clinch a playoff berth either if they defeat or tie the Chicago Bears (Dec. 30 at 4:25 p.m. ET on Fox in Chicago and Minnesota) or if the Philadelphia Eagles lose to the Washington Redskins (Dec. 30 at 4:25 p.m. ET on Fox in Philadelphia and Washington D.C.). Philadelphia can only enter the playoffs with a win plus a Vikings loss.
• The Baltimore Ravens clinch a playoff berth and the AFC North division title either if they defeat or tie the Cleveland Browns (Dec. 30 at 4:25 p.m. ET on CBS in Cleveland and Baltimore) or if the Pittsburgh Steelers lose to the Cincinnati Bengals (Dec. 30 at 4:25 p.m. ET on CBS in Pittsburgh and Cincinnati). Pittsburgh can only enter the playoffs with a win plus either a Ravens loss OR a Colts-Titans tie.
