The Seattle Seahawks (7-7) are firmly in the hunt as the NFC playoff picture but need a win in Week 16 against the Tennessee Titans (5-9) to help their chances of securing one of the four remaining seeds. After activating Geno Smith prior to kick-off last week, the Seahawks gave Drew Lock the start, who delivered a late fourth-quarter scoring drive en route to the win.
The Indianapolis Colts (8-6) continue their late-season push for the AFC South title as they face the Atlanta Falcons (6-8). QB Gardner Minshew threw for three touchdowns in a win over the Pittsburgh Steelers last week, and star RB Jonathan Taylor will be pushing to make his return from a three-week absence after undergoing thumb surgery.
The Falcons look to rebound quickly after losing to the lowly Carolina Panthers last time out. QB Desmond Ridder was only able to throw for 152 yards last week, and has been benched for this Sunday's game. QB Taylor Heinicke will look to right the ship and keep the Falcons’ playoff hopes alive vs. Indianapolis.
The afternoon slate begins with the Jacksonville Jaguars (8-6) hosting the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (7-7). The Jaguars placed QB Trevor Lawrence in concussion protocol after losing in Week 15, making his status uncertain in the midst of a three-game losing streak.
The Buccaneers look to make it four victories in a row as their race for the NFC South title continues.
While the Patriots were eliminated from playoff contention earlier this month, they still get the chance to play spoiler to the Broncos in their push for a playoff berth.
Meanwhile, the Broncos look to get things back on track after getting blown out by the Detroit Lions last week.

The Giants were on a three-game win streak with QB Tommy DeVito before a 24-6 loss to New Orleans in Week 15. A loss against the Eagles would all but end their diminishing playoff hopes.
