Week 16 of the NFL season kicks off tonight on Thursday Night Football as two playoff contenders face off in a game that could hold major playoff implications!
With the postseason inching closer and closer, every win counts as the playoff picture continues to fall into place. Five teams have already been eliminated from playoff contention and more are expected to join them in the week ahead as the postseason begins slipping away from many teams.
Tonight’s game won’t result in any playoff eliminations, but it could very well help to determine whether the two teams facing off will make it to the postseason. As such, fans should be in for an exciting game as both teams look to keep their playoff dreams alive by taking down their opponent tonight.
