The last week of the regular season and the final play-off spots will be decided ahead of the post-season in the new year
Indianapolis Colts at Tennessee Titans
With the winner of this game making the play offs as the number six seed this is an effective play off game between two NFC South teams with a 9-6 record. It should be a close game with the Colts one of the most improved teams in the league especially at offensive line which helps make their offense tick. The Titans have an injury doubt about quarterback Mariota and their offensive scheme is quite humdrum but of course they have home advantage here. I do like the Colts to cover +7 at 10/11 with SkyBet though.
Cleveland Browns at Baltimore Ravens
Thanks to their victory at the Chargers behind their league leading defense the Ravens now are in control of their play-off destiny thanks also to the Steelers loss at the Saints.The Browns are much improved since their coaching changes winning 5 of 6 behind rookie quarterback Mayfield and have a chance of a turn around to a winning season if they win here and they are +5.5 on the point spread. Obviously facing the Ravens defense is a huge challenge but i like them to keep it close and will take them with the points
Chicago Bears at Minnesota Vikings
In the NFC North the Bears have locked up the number three seed in the conference play offs as divisional winners and the Vikings are in a three way battle for two wild card places with the Seahawks and Eagles. The Vikings are much improved on offenses since the change of co-ordinator led to a re-focussing on the run game and that, coupled with the fact that the Bears may rest players, accounts for them being installed as seven point favourites here at 10/11 with Skybet, which they could cover
