One step closer to the end of the season means teams are one step closer to having their playoff futures finalised. The Green Bay Packers will win the NFC North if they beat the Chicago Bears, who will (at best) have a less-than-100% Jay Cutler, on Sunday evening (1800 – Sky Sports). Next up are 2 teams, both at 7-6, scrabbling around trying to secure one of the 2 wild-card spots in their respective conferences, as the Pittsburgh Steelers take on the Dallas Cowboys (2125 – Sky Sports). With the New England Patriots having already won their division, the San Francisco 49ers will be eying a win to secure themselves a berth, and with a Seahawks loss, their division as well (0120 Mon am – C4) – could this be a Superbowl preview? The NY Jets have managed to claw themselves to 6-7, and with one of the easiest run-ins, are lining themselves up to sneak a wild-card spot; they take on the Tennessee Titans on Monday night (0130 Tues am – BBC).
