NFL Week 17 schedule: 5 best games to watch

The NFL Week 17 schedule is fantastic, and these five games are the best of the bunch this weekend.

5. Miami Dolphins at Tennessee Titans (-3.5)

The Titans are trying to lock up the AFC South for the second consecutive season, and a win over the Dolphins would do it. However, Miami isn’t going to be an easy out, riding a seven-game winning streak. After starting 1-7, Miami is now 8-7 and sitting in the AFC’s final playoff spot. If the Dolphins win, they’ll only need to beat the New England Patriots in Week 18 to make the playoffs.

4. Los Angeles Rams (-3.5) at Baltimore Ravens

A huge game for both sides, especially the Ravens. Should Baltimore lose, it would effectively knock it out of the playoff race barring a miracle. The Ravens, which were 7-2 only a few months ago, have been racked by injuries and a horrid defense, putting them at 8-7 and on the outside of the playoff bubble. As for the Rams, they’re trying to move one step closer to winning the NFC West, which they hold a one-game lead in over the skidding Arizona Cardinals.

3. Cleveland Browns (-3) at Pittsburgh Steelers

The AFC North could be finished off if the Bengals beat the Chiefs on Sunday. However, should Cincinnati lose to Kansas City, the division remains open to whoever wins this Monday night affair. If the Browns win, they’ll be playing for the division title in Week 18 at home against the Bengals. If the Steelers win, they’ll need to beat the Ravens in Baltimore while the Bengals fall to Cleveland.

2. Arizona Cardinals at Dallas Cowboys (-5.5)

This is a picture of two teams going in the opposite direction. The Cowboys are 11-4 and playing great defense while the offense, led by quarterback Dak Prescott, is starting to figure things out after a bit of a rough patch. Meanwhile, the Cardinals were the league’s last unbeaten team this year but things have gone completely sideways, with Arizona losing three straight and now looking like a wild card team. However, if Kyler Murray and Co. step up, they make the NFC take notice once again.

1. Kansas City Chiefs (-5) at Cincinnati Bengals

For Kansas City, the AFC West is already wrapped. The Chiefs are trying to win their final two games and make sure they’re the top seed in the conference for a second straight year. As for the Bengals, they’re trying to win the AFC North for the first time since 2015. Huge, huge games between two contenders in the AFC.
