In order for the Saints (9-3) to claim a postseason date, they must first beat the Falcons (7-5) on Thursday (8:25 p.m. ET, NBC, NFL Network, Amazon Prime).

A Saints victory, coupled with losses by the Panthers (vs. Vikings) and Cowboys (vs. Giants) would have New Orleans in the playoffs for the first time since 2013. Thanks to the NFL’s third-ranked rush offense and an improved defense, the Saints are in a position to win the NFC South for the first time since 2011.

A loss by the Cowboys (6-6) also would clinch the NFC East for the Eagles (10-2), who could also wrap up a division title by beating the Rams (9-3) no matter what Dallas does. The Rams could punch their ticket to the playoffs for the first time since 2004 with a win and losses by five other teams.

Vikings (10-2) at Panthers (8-4)

1 p.m. ET, Sunday (CBS)

Vikings quarterback Case Keenum is an unlikely MVP candidate and can help the Vikings clinch the NFC North by outdueling 2015 NFL MVP Cam Newton. Points could be at a premium with two of the NFL’s top six defenses squaring off at Bank of America Stadium.

Whichever team can sustain drives and win time of possession to wear down the other defense late will likely emerge as the winner. The Vikings have the NFL's best third-down offense and third-down defense.

Ravens (7-5) at Steelers (10-2)

8:30 p.m., Sunday (NBC)

A win by the Steelers would give them the AFC North for the third time in four years. What the Steelers cannot afford to do is look ahead to next week’s game against the Patriots.

The Steelers have squeaked by the Packers and Bengals the past two weeks. They won’t have wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster (suspended) this week against a Ravens defense already with three shutouts this season.

The Ravens are also an opportunistic defense and lead the NFL with 20 interceptions. Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has been careless with the football at times, including a five-interception game at home against the Jaguars.

Patriots (10-2) at Dolphins (5-7)

The Patriots have won the AFC East eight straight seasons and can make it nine by beating the Dolphins.

The Dolphins have been one of the NFL’s most inconsistent teams but are coming off their best game — a 35-9 win over the Broncos.

Last week’s performance against the hapless Broncos likely won’t matter much against a Patriots team that trounced the Dolphins in Week 12.
