We’ll start in the NFC North, where the Chicago Bears need to beat the Lions in Detroit at 1:00PM ET on Sunday and have the Green Bay Packers beat the Minnesota Vikings at 4:25PM ET in order to make the playoffs. If the Vikings beat the Packers, then they’re in the playoffs and the Bears will be eliminated. And according to oddsmakers from online sports book, The Bears have opened as 4-point favorites over the Lions while the Packers, who will clinch the No. 2 seed in the NFC with a victory, are 3.5-point favorites versus the Vikings.

If the Packers lose to the Vikings, they can still clinch the No. 2 seed if the Arizona Cardinals were somehow to beat the San Francisco 49ers at 4:25PM ET. But considering San Fran has opened as a 14.5-point favorite versus Arizona, it’s doubtful that the Niners would slip up versus the lowly Cards.

In the NFC East, the Washington Redskins and Dallas Cowboys will play for the division crown at 8:20PM ET on Sunday Night Football. If the Redskins win, they’ll win the NFC East and host a playoff game next weekend. If the Cowboys win, they’ll become division champs. It’s that simple. Washington has opened as a 5-point favorite and the over/under is currently sitting at 50 points.

Other games with playoff implications including the Bengals vs. Ravens, who are 4-point road underdogs, and the Colts versus the Texans, who are 4-point road favorites. The Giants, who need a victory and help to make the postseason, are 9-point favorites versus the Eagles this Sunday.
