Al Michaels, Cris Collinsworth and Bob Costas will have the opportunity to help broadcast a game with huge playoff implications.

The NFL wants the season to end on a high note. NBC has the privilege of ending the season with a game between two teams that are fighting for a division or a wild-card spot.

Following the results of some Week 16 games, the crew at NBC will quickly get together and decide which game they will broadcast for the 2011-2012 season finale. The decision may not look easy now, but after we learn which teams have clinched a playoff spot, the deciding factors will be easier to approach when it comes down to picking that final game.

In this slideshow, I will feature some games and tell you what needs to happen in order for that game to be featured on NBC's Sunday Night Football. I will also give you a quick rundown of each team and their seasons, giving you an idea of what you could expect.

As of now, there are five games in this season's Week 17 schedule that have a chance at getting flexed. Will your team make it to Sunday Night Football?
