Although the Green Bay Packers are out of the playoff race, fans of the Green and Gold can still find some fun in some excellent matchups across the NFL today as the 2018 season draws near a close. Two games today feature likely playoff-bound teams from opposite conferences squaring off in contests that could help decide seeding on both sides of the postseason bracket.

The late afternoon game on CBS should be a fun one with some offensive fireworks as the Pittsburgh Steelers visit the Big Easy to play the New Orleans Saints. Pittsburgh needs a win to realistically solidify itself as a playoff team, while the Saints can clinch home-field advantage in the NFC playoffs with a victory.

On Sunday Night Football, Kansas City and Seattle square off with critical seeding implications for them as well. A win will keep the Chiefs on pace for home-field in the AFC, while Seattle needs a victory to seal up a Wild Card spot in the NFC. Should Seattle lose, the opportunity may be open for an NFC East team to sneak into the playoffs instead.

Tune in for the games throughout the day and follow along here.
