With the Green Bay Packers now eliminated from the
playoffs , it’s time we turn our attention to playoff races across the NFL. Saturday’s games in week 16 will have a massive impact on the seedings, particularly in the AFC where one of the top teams and two more franchises fighting for Wild Card positioning are in action.First, we have an inter-conference matchup, with Washington — still alive in the NFC Wild Card race — traveling to play the 8-6 Tennessee Titans. Tennessee is currently tied with two other teams in the AFC with that record, but the Baltimore Ravens currently hold the tiebreaker over them and the Indianapolis Colts.After that game, said Ravens will play at the Los Angeles Chargers, who currently sit in 5th position despite being tied with the Kansas City Chiefs for the best record in the conference. KC holds the divisional tiebreaker, however, which kicks the Chargers back down into the Wild Card range.LA can put some pressure on KC with a win tonight, though, and the Chiefs have a tough matchup at Seattle on Sunday night this week. Philip Rivers and company might be sitting in the top seed at the end of the weekend if things break their way.Tune in for today’s games throughout the afternoon and evening and enjoy here with your APC community.Washington (7-7) vs. Tennessee Titans (8-6)3:30 PM Central Time (4:30 Eastern)Nissan StadiumNashville Elgton Jenkins Jersey , TennesseeTV Broadcast: NFL NetworkCommentators: Curt Menefee, Nate Burleson, Steve Mariucci, Melissa StarkBaltimore Ravens (8-6) vs. Los Angeles Chargers (11-3)5:20 PM Pacific Time (8:20 Eastern)StubHub CenterCarson, CaliforniaTV Broadcast: NFL NetworkCommentators: Mike Tirico, Kurt Warner, Peter Schrager Quarterback Aaron Rodgers and wide receiver Davante Adams were named to the Pro Bowl on Tuesday, just a few days after the Green Bay Packers were officially eliminated from playoff contention.More Packers coverageBucks’ Wes Matthews loves Wisconsin, is a Vikings fanPreview: Packers look to slow Vikings’ revitalized run gameTop Tweets: Yelich thanks fans for support after season-ending injuryAmos sparks rebuilt Packers defense in debutPackers to be tested again by familiar foe in Zimmer, VikingsPro Bowl nods are nothing new for Rodgers, who has now been selected seven times , while Adams, who was an injury replacement last season, is set to make his second appearance.The Packers have struggled this season, but the connection between Rodgers and his top target has only improved.Adams ranks fourth in the league with 1,315 receiving yards and second with 12 touchdown receptions, both career highs.Rodgers ranks sixth in the league with 3,974 passing yards and has 23 touchdown passes against just two interceptions.The veteran quarterback NFL-record streak of 402 consecutive pass attempt without an interception ended Sunday in the Packers’ 24-17 loss to the Chicago Bears.Left tackle David Bakhtiari, defensive lineman Kenny Clark and center Corey Linsley were named alternates.
