NFL Week 16 Schedule with Week 16 Betting Lines
Saturday, December 23
The Ravens have arguably played against the easiest schedule in the NFL this season. It shouldn't be shocking that they've got the easiest schedule left the rest of the way, too, with games against the Colts and Bengals.
The Packers lost their playoff hopes in Week 15, and it's a wonder if Aaron Rodgers should even be risked at this point. The Vikes are two wins away from securing a first-round bye in the NFC playoffs.

The Bengals look like they've completely given up on the season, but their strengths play right into Detroit's weaknesses. The Lions have to have this game to stay alive in the NFC playoff picture.
The Bolts have to be down after losing to the Chiefs, but they're not out. If we had to guess, they'll get into the playoffs at 9-7, and they're going to be favorites to do just that.
Tennessee's ship is sinking late on for the second straight season. The Titans have already lost the AFC South, and they no longer control their own destiny for a Wild Card after losing their last two games. To drop from 8-4 to out of the playoffs in the weak AFC would be devastating.
The Bears have lost seven straight games in which they were favored. The Browns have lost all 14 games they've played this year. Something has to give in the Windy City.
Carolina still has some faint hopes at the No. 1 seed, but the bigger question is whether there is going to be any drama stemming from Jerry Richardson's sudden announcement that he's selling the Panthers at the end of the season.
This game could end up featuring one of the highest totals in NFL history. It's also a game that probably has to be won for either team to have a shot of winning the NFC South.
The Broncos are changing starting quarterbacks for the fourth time this season. John Elway is probably going to treat this game as a recruiting trip to try to get Kirk Cousins to Mile High next year.
Kansas City is one win away from locking up the AFC West, and this should be the game where the tumultuous job gets done. The Fins aren't technically dead yet, but they're flopping on land and merely need to be whacked by the oar.
The Patriots have only scored 29 points in their last three home games against the Bills. Buffalo could be a live underdog in its quest to get into the playoffs.
The Jags are picking the absolute worst time to run into the 49ers. Jimmy Garoppolo has won all three of his starts in San Fran. A win here would likely end Jacksonville's dream of a first-round bye in the AFC.
If this really is the end for Bruce Arians and/or Larry Fitzgerald in Arizona, don't be surprised if these two spend their last home game going out with a bang.
Surviving Sunday Night Football in Oakland has kept Dallas' season alive. This one isn't necessarily an elimination game, but it may as well be. Neither team is getting off of the mat in Week 17 if this game is lost.
Monday, December 25
The Steelers are giving 10 points on the road on Christmas Day, and they're doing so with Antonio Brown nursing a torn calf muscle. This feels like a trap game, especially off of the tough loss to New England.
The Raiders' playoff chances went down the tubes last Sunday. The best Christmas present the City of Brotherly Love could get is a win in this game and the No. 1 seed in the NFC playoffs.
