    Week 16 in the NFL offers several teams the opportunity to clinch playoff berths and division titles.

    Vikings-Packers on Saturday night is an intriguing NFC North battle even with Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers out: The Vikings can clinch a first-round bye in the playoffs with a win and a Panthers loss.

    Other clinching scenarios:

    The Rams can clinch the NFC West with a win over the Titans and a Seahawks loss or tie. The Titans, on the other hand, can clinch a playoff berth for the first time since 2008 with a win. In the NFC South, the Panthers can clinch a playoff berth with a win over the Buccaneers. The Saints can clinch the NFC South with a win over the Falcons and a Panthers loss. The Falcons can clinch a playoff berth by beating the Saints.

    In the AFC, home-field advantage is at stake for the Patriots in a home matchup with the Bills. The Pats will need losses by the Steelers and Jaguars to lock it up. The Steelers can clinch a first-round bye with a win and a Jaguars loss. The Chiefs can clinch the AFC West with a win over the Dolphins or a Chargers loss to the Jets.


    Dallas Cowboys, among others has been eliminated from the NFL playoffs
