The NFL landscape changed forever when the league decided to backload the schedule with divisional games. Because of that, Week 17 means much more than it used to, and fewer teams will be sitting their starters in an action-packed final slate of games.
The NFC East is still up for grabs, and the NFL flexed the final game between the Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys to Sunday night. The game will decide who goes to the playoffs. Adding to the intrigue, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that quarterback Tony Romo will be out for Dallas with a back injury.
The NFC North is still to be decided as well following a historic collapse by the Detroit Lions. The winner between the Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears heads to the playoffs.
The Baltimore Ravens and Miami Dolphins are both trying to sneak in the back door of the AFC playoffs, and they face off with the Cincinnati Bengals and New York Jets, respectively. The Arizona Cardinals are trying to get in, but they have to knock off the San Francisco 49ers while hoping the Tampa Bay Buccaneers best the New Orleans Saints.
