Week 16

Saints vs. Vikings

I’m sure Saints fans will be nervous about this game given their recent playoff record against the Minnesota Vikings, but they are the better team here. There’s a good chance Drew Brees will be back in time for this game even if he doesn’t play against the Chiefs. That’s bad news for the Vikings, who could have their own playoff ambitions ended in this game. Winner: New Orleans

Seahawks vs. Rams

This is a big one for the NFC West race. The winner of this could go onto host a playoff game and potentially even get the top seed, while the loser could end up as a wild-card team. The Rams were impressive in their victory over the Seahawks earlier this season but I’m going with Seattle to get even in this game. Winner: Seattle

Packers vs. Titans

Easily the toughest remaining game on the schedule for Green Bay comes in Week 15. While Derrick Henry should concern the Packers, the Tennessee Titans’ fourth-worst pass defense should not. This could be another MVP performance by Aaron Rodgers as he lights up a struggling Titans defense. With a win here and the other results going the team’s way, the number one seed would be the Packers’ with a game to go. Winner: Green Bay
