NFL Week 17 Schedule: Playoff Seeding, NFC West & Wild Card Up For Grabs

The final week of the NFL regular season is upon us, and there are several playoff berths and matchups yet to be decided. Today's slate of Week 17 games brings us (mostly) games with divisional and wild card implications, and is highlighted by the battle for the NFC West. Here are the full slate of games available on television in Los Angeles for NFL Week 17:

↵

10 a.m.: Pittsburgh Steelers at Cleveland Browns (CBS)

↵

The Steelers have already clinched a playoff berth, but can clinch the AFC North and a first-round playoff bye with a win against Cleveland (or a Baltimore loss to Cincinnati)

↵

10 a.m.: Tampa Bay Buccaneers at New Orleans Saints (Fox)

↵

The Saints are in the playoffs, but have an outside chance at a divisional title and a bye week if they win and Atlanta loses to lowly Carolina). Tampa Bay needs to not only win, but also get losses from the Giants and Packers to make the postseason.

↵

1 p.m.: Chicago Bears at Green Bay Packers (Fox)

↵

The Packers need to win to get in the playoffs (or both the Giants and Buccaneers can lose). The Bears already have a bye locked up, but can take the top overall seed in the NFC with a win and an Atlanta loss.

↵

1 p.m.: San Diego Chargers at Denver Broncos (CBS)

↵

This game is for pride only.

↵

5 p.m.: St. Louis Rams at Seattle Seahawks (NBC)

↵

This game is for the NFC West. If the Rams win, we get an 8-8 division champion, but if the Seahawks hold serve at home, the NFL gets to deal with all the questions and angst that comes with a 7-9 playoff team.
