The NFL kicked off Week 17 with a Thursday night battle between the New York Jets and Cleveland Browns. Then—because of the College Football Playoff games on Monday—the NFL moved their typical Monday night game to Saturday night, which featured the Detroit Lions and Dallas Cowboys.
Now, with 14 games still on the Week 17 docket, the NFL will play their remaining games all on Sunday. Here’s a look at which of those games will be on TV for the local Detroit audience.
In the 1 p.m. ET viewing timeslot, CBS will feature a battle between the top two teams in the AFC when the Miami Dolphins take on the Baltimore Ravens in Maryland. If the Ravens (12-3) win, they’ll lock up the No. 1 seed in the AFC, but if the Dolphins (11-4) get the victory, they’ll force seeding to be determined in Week 18.
In the 4 p.m. ET timeslot, FOX will have the Pittsburgh Steelers taking on the Seattle Seahawks in a matchup where both teams will be fighting for a spot in the postseason in their respective conferences. Currently, Seattle is in the No. 7 slot in the NFC while the Steelers are on the outside looking in, and need a win to stay in the hunt.
The second half of CBS’s doubleheader kicks off at 4:25 p.m. ET with the Cincinnati Bengals taking on the Kansas City Chiefs. If the Chiefs win, they’ll lock up the AFC West division, while the Bengals are fighting for their postseason lives.
The week wraps up on Sunday night when NFC North rivals Green Bay Packers and Minnesota Vikings square off in a battle where the loser is likely eliminated from the playoffs and the winner keeps their postseason hopes alive a bit longer.
