NFL Schedule, Week 16: NFL playoff picture should clarify today

Use this as your open thread for today's 1 p.m. games.

John Rieger-USA TODAY Sports

Week 16 of the 2014 NFL season has an excellent slate of games. Almost all of the games this week have some bearing on the post season.

A half-dozen teams could be eliminated from playoff contention in the 1 p.m. ET games alone. Even a game between a 5-9 team and a 6-8 team has legitimate play-off implications.

The Giants don't play until 4:05, so let's take a look at what's on until then.

Teams: Baltimore Ravens (9-5) at  Houtston Texans (7-7)


Odds: Baltimore -3.5

Teams: Detroit Lions (10-5) at Chicago Bears (5-9)

TV: Fox

Odds: Detroit -4.5

Teams: Kansas City Chiefs (9-5) at Pittsburgh Steelers (9-5)


Odds: Pittsburgh -3.0

Teams: New England Patriots (11-3) at New York Jets (3-11)


Odds: New England -10

Teams: Atlanta Falcons (5-9) at New Orleans Saints (6-8)

TV: Fox

Odds: New Orleans -6.5

Teams: Minnesota Vikings (6-8) at Miami Dolphins (7-7)

TV: Fox

Odds: Miami -6.5

Teams: Green Bay Packers (10-4) at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2-11)

TV: Fox

Odds: Green Bay -10

Teams: Cleveland Browns (7-7) at Carolina Panthers (5-8-1)
