The Dolphins are currently 9-3 and need a win to keep the No. 1 seed in their race with the Baltimore Ravens, who are now 10-3 and have overtaken the top seed for now. That top seed has become a two-horse race for now, as the rest of the pack is sitting between 8-5 and 7-6.
Miami has been one of the hottest teams this season behind quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, who has been running head coach Mike McDaniel’s offense to near perfection this season. It has been a huge season for wide receiver Tyreek Hill, who will likely cross the 1,500-yard mark on the night.
The Titans are, unfortunately, closer to being eliminated from the playoff race than reaching the Wild Card race. They are getting an extended look at rookie quarterback Will Levis. We have seen some flashes from him, but otherwise, he has been a young quarterback on a team that is reliant on getting running back Derrick Henry going. Not the most sustainable for a young quarterback in today’s NFL.
The other game features the Packers trying to remain on the inside of the Wild Card race in the NFC. They are coming off the high of defeating the Kansas City Chiefs. Quarterback Jordan Love and his young wide receivers are hitting their stride at the right time. He has been on fire since Week 11, tossing eight touchdowns without an interception.
The Giants are trying to stay out of the basement of the NFC East with the Washington Commanders, who are (4-9). The offensive line has held this team back in a major way. They already lost Daniel Jones, and backup quarterback Tommy DeVito has been sacked 26 times in the last four games. For them to score the upset, they’ll need to do much better.
Here are our staff picks for tonight.
