After the San Francisco 49ers failed to close Thursday night’s game against the Tennessee Titans, the latter now has the chance to clinch the division with a Colts’ loss on Saturday night.
With three games remaining, here is your rooting guide for Week 16:
Cleveland Browns at Green Bay Packers
Who to root for: Packers
The Browns aren’t currently a major threat to the Colts in the wild-card race but clearing up the picture always helps. Plus, it’s an easy choice when it comes to NFC teams vs. AFC teams.
Baltimore Ravens at Cincinnati Bengals
Who to root for: Bengals
This one is a big matchup because the Ravens are currently on the outside looking in. If the Bengals, win, the Colts will still have the tiebreaker over the Ravens because of their conference record being superior.
Los Angeles Chargers at Houston Texans
Who to root for: Texans
“Don’t let your dreams be dreams.” – Shia LeBeouf
Buffalo Bills at New England Patriots
Who to root for: Bills
Not much changes here if the Patriots or Bills win. The Colts hold the head-to-head tiebreaker over both teams.
Pittsburgh Steelers at Kansas City Chiefs
Who to root for: Chiefs
It’s unlikely the Steelers would be much of a problem for the Colts in the wild-card race, and Indy has the better conference record than both teams.
Denver Broncos at Las Vegas Raiders
Who to root for: Broncos
The playoff chances for the Colts increases slightly with a Broncos win. The Colts get the Raiders in Week 17 so having them come off a loss wouldn’t hurt.
Miami Dolphins at New Orleans Saints
Who to root for: Saints
Somehow, the Dolphins are still in the race. Taking the Saints here is an easy choice even if it’s unlikely Ian Book leads them to glory.
