Week 16 of the regular  season is upon us, and many teams are squarely in the hunt for a berth in the NFL playoffs this week. The Miami Dolphins, Baltimore Ravens and San Diego Chargers are all fighting for the No. 6 seed in the AFC, while the Cincinnati Bengals and New England Patriots are fighting for the No. 2 seed and a critical first-round bye.

The playoffs are beginning to take shape with three teams having clinched playoff berths with three weeks remaining. Week 15 will provide several other teams with opportunities to clinch playoff berths, including the Bengals, who will be looking to accomplish that feat at hove vs. the Minnesota Vikings.

But they’ll need the Dolphins to lose to the Buffalo Bills clinch a playoff berth, and the Ravens need to lose to the Patriots for them to clinch the AFC North.

There’s still a lot to be determined as far as playoff matchups and who even makes it to the postseason to compete for the Super Bowl. Here’s the full schedule for Week 16 with the games bolded that will impact the NFL playoffs
