NFL playoff implications
The Rams have been eliminated from playoff contention. The Seahawks head into Week 18 holding the final playoff berth, but they do not control their own destiny. If Seattle loses, they’re out. If they win and the Packers beat the Lions, Seattle is out due to the conference record tiebreaker. If the Seahawks win and the Lions beat the Packers, Seattle gets the final wild card berth due to holding the head-to-head tiebreaker over Detroit. The Lions-Packers game is not airing until Sunday Night Football, so we’ll know heading into that game if Detroit has anything to play for.
