Week 16 in the NFL got extended a bit after the Vikings-Eagles Sunday night game was snowed-out until Tuesday, but the stage is now set for the final week of action.

There is only one playoff spot up for grabs in the AFC with Indianapolis and Jacksonville still battling it out for the South Division title while over in the NFC, a wildcard spot and the West Division is still on the line.

The following is a brief look at each matchup in the final week of the NFL regular season along with the current pointspread as supplied by Sportsinteraction.com.

Sunday, Jan. 02

1:00 P.M. Carolina at Atlanta (-9)
Over/Under: 41 ½

The Panthers clinched the No. 1 pick in next spring’s draft with last Thursday night’s loss to Pittsburgh as even with a win in this game they would still finish with the outright worst record in the league.

The 12-3 Falcons will still clinch the NFC South and the number one seed in the conference with a win, despite losing to New Orleans on Monday night.

Tennessee at Indianapolis (-9 ½)
Over/Under: 48

This could very possible be Jeff Fisher’s last game as the longest tenured head coach in the NFL after the Titan’s took a step another backwards in 2010.

The Colts need a win in this game to guarantee another AFC South Division title. If they do clinch the division it would their ninth straight appearance in the postseason.

Pittsburgh (-6) at Cleveland
Over/Under: 37 ½

The Steelers will clinch the AFC North and a first-round bye as the second seed in the conference with a win regardless of the outcome of Baltimore’s game.

A loss by the Browns would give them an identical overall record (5-11), division record (1-5) and home record (3-5) as last year.

Minnesota at Detroit (-7)
Over/Under: 43

The Vikings extended stay in Philadelphia leaves them with a short week to try and get ready for this game. A win would avoid a tie with Detroit for last-place in the division.

A Lions win would be their fourth in row and give them a total of six wins for the season after winning a combined three games the last two years.

Chicago at Green Bay (-6)
Over/Under: 44 ½

The Bears already clinched a first round bye with Philadelphia’s loss to Minnesota but could still be the number one seed with a win in this game and an Atlanta loss.

A Packer’s win secures a spot in the playoffs regardless of what any other team does. A win could also set up a rematch with Philadelphia in next week’s Wildcard Round after beating the Eagles 27-20 in Week 1.

Oakland at Kansas City (-4 ½)
Over/Under: 42

Despite a disappointing loss last week to Indianapolis that ended their playoff chances, the Raiders have to be happy with their best finish since 2002.

The Chiefs clinched the AFC West with last week’s win over Tennessee and are guaranteed the best single-season turnaround in franchise history after finishing 4-12 last season.

Miami at New England (-3 ½)
Over/Under: 42

This could be the end of Tony Sparano’s three year run as the Dolphins head coach after losses to Cleveland, Buffalo, and Detroit in their last four games completely derailed their season.

The Patriots have already locked-up the number one seed in the AFC, but do not expect head coach Bill Belichick to call off the dogs in this game.

Tampa Bay at New Orleans (-7 ½)
Over/Under: 48

Buccaneers’ win over Seattle last week was their ninth of the season, ensuring that they will have a winning season after going just 3-13 last year.

The Saints victory on Monday night ensures they will have a chance to defend their Super Bowl title by locking up a spot in this year’s postseason.

Buffalo at N.Y. Jets (-3)
Over/Under: 35 ½

The Bills are going home for the season regardless of this game’s outcome, but they can take some measure of pride in finishing the season with five wins in their last eight games with a win in this one.

The Jets backed into the playoffs for the second straight season after Jacksonville’s overtime loss last week to Washington allowed them to clinch a wildcard spot despite losing to Chicago.

Cincinnati at Baltimore (-10)
Over/Under: 43

A loss to the Ravens would give the Bengals a bookend 2-1 start and finish to the 2010 season with 10 straight losses sandwiched in between. NFL Betting

The Ravens clinched a wildcard spot with their win last week over Cleveland but can still clinch the AFC North with a win this week and a Pittsburgh loss.

Dallas at Philadelphia (-12)
Over/Under: 48

The Cowboys loss to Arizona last week could have dealt a death blow to Jason Garrett’s chances of being named the permanent head coach for next season.

The Eagles’ shocking loss to Minnesota  on Tuesday night ensures they will be the third seed in the playoffs regardless of what happens this Sunday against Dallas.

Jacksonville (-2 ½) at Houston
Over/Under: 49

The Jaguars can still clinch the AFC South with a win and a loss by Indianapolis despite last week’s overtime loss to Washington.

Head coach Gary Kubiak will most likely be out of a job regardless of the outcome of this game after the Texans took a huge step backwards this season.

N.Y. Giants (-4) at Washington
Over/Under: 44 ½

Back-to-back losses to Philadelphia and Green Bay may have not only ended the Giants’ playoff chances, but Tom Coughlin’s seven year run as the head coach.

Donovan McNabb’s brief career in Washington as its starting quarterback will most likely end with him on the bench; sitting out his third straight game in favor of Rex Grossman.

4:15 P.M. San Diego (-3 ½) at Denver
Over/Under: 47 ½

Another late season run by the Chargers came up short after last week’s loss to Cincinnati officially eliminated them from the playoffs making this final game completely meaningless in the standings.

The Broncos will continue to give rookie quarterback Tim Tebow a chance to audition for next season’s starting job in this game even though Kyle Orton has been cleared to play.

Arizona at San Francisco (-6 ½)
Over/Under: 38

The 5-10 Cardinals can actually finish just one game out of first place in their division with a win coupled with a Seattle win over St. Louis. This would also put an exclamation point of the futility of the NFC West this season.

Interim head coach Jim Tomsula takes over for this game after 49ers Team President Jed York decided to fire Mike Singletary after Sunday’s loss to St. Louis.

Sunday Night Football

St. Louis (-1) at Seattle
Over/Under: 43

The NFC West comes down to one final game as the winner wins the division and advances to the playoffs. The Rams can at least get there with a record of 8-8.

The Seahawks would be the first team to make the playoffs with a losing record should they win this game. Charlie Whitehurst is expected to get the start at quarterback for the injured Matt Hasselbeck.
