There’s no Thursday NFL game in Week 16, but two games Saturday and two more Monday can firm up the playoff race.


That’s a theme in Week 16: games affecting the playoff picture. All but three — Sunday’s Browns-Bears, Broncos-Redskins and Giants-Cardinals games — have an impact on the playoff picture.

The Ravens (8-6) can take a step closer to claiming a postseason berth Saturday with a win over the Colts (3-11) in Baltimore (4:30 p.m. ET, NFL Network). That game is followed by an NFC North tilt at Lambeau Field between the Vikings and Packers (8:30 p.m. ET, NBC). The Vikings (11-3) have clinched the NFC North and could clinch a first-round bye with a win and a loss by the Panthers (10-4) to the Buccaneers (4-10).

The Packers (7-7) will be without Aaron Rodgers. The MVP quarterback was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, a day after the Packers were eliminated from postseason contention.

Rodgers’ absence could help the Lions get into the playoffs as well. The Lions (8-6) are in the seventh position, needing to beat the Bengals (5-9) and Packers and have the Falcons (9-5) slip up against the Saints (10-4) and Panthers to punch their ticket to the tournament.
