The NFL decided to schedule an entire slew of games in the second time slot this week, compared to most of the rest of the season when there’s been less than a handful. And of course, playoff implications abound...
On the docket for this afternoon (all times ET):
Saints at Falcons - 4:25 p.m./Fox
Giants at Redskins - 4:25 p.m./Fox
Cardinals at Rams - 4:25 p.m./Fox
Raiders at Broncos - 4:25 p.m./CBS
Chiefs at Chargers - 4:25 p.m./CBS
Seahawks at 49ers - 4:25 p.m./Fox
If you’re wondering what playoff implications still exist, SB Nation has great description right here.
And of course, tonight will bring the battle between the Detroit Lions and Green Bay Packers for the NFL North title. We will have a separate thread for that one, as Sunday Night Football this year will close out with a bang.
This is your NFL Week 17 Second Shift Open Thread... Have fun!
