We are heading into Week 17 of the NFL season. This is the second-to-last week of the regular season and the final week of multiple primetime games. Monday Night Football has come to an end for this season, but there are still three primetime games this week, with a game on Saturday night replacing the Monday night contest.

Let’s take a look at the NFL primetime schedule for Week 17.

2023 NFL Primetime Schedule: Week 17

Thursday Night Football, Prime Video

New York Jets vs. Cleveland Browns

The Jets (6-9) go on the road to face the Browns (10-5). Cleveland is red hot right now and has won three in a row. Veteran quarterback Joe Flacco has experienced a career resurgence ahead of this revenge game against his former team. He has played in four games and has 1,307 yards with 10 touchdowns and seven interceptions. The Jets will likely go with Trevor Siemian again under center and are coming off a 30-28 win over the Washington Commanders.

The Browns are the seven-point favorites at DraftKings Sportsbook. Cleveland has -340 moneyline odds, while New York is installed as the +270 underdog. The point total is set at 34.

Detroit Lions vs. Dallas Cowboys

This is a huge game between the 11-4 Lions and the 10-5 Cowboys. Detroit has locked down its first division title in 30 years. Dallas lost a tough game to the Miami Dolphins and is now 10-5. While this still seems like a good record, the loss was enough to drop Dallas to second place in the NFC East. The Cowboys are guaranteed a playoff spot but need a win in this matchup to be back in play for the division title and a top-four seed. Detroit can’t afford to rest players as they are in contention for the overall 1-seed in the conference which would come with a first round bye.

The Cowboys are 5.5-point favorites at DraftKings Sportsbook. Dallas has -238 moneyline odds at home, while Detroit is the +200 underdog. The point total is set at 52.5.

Sunday Night Football, NBC

Green Bay Packers vs. Minnesota Vikings

The NFL had the option to flex a game into this spot but chose not to. It should be a competitive game, but a game between two 7-8 squads is far from the marquee matchup of the week. Still, the outcome of this game greatly impacts their respective playoff chances. Heading into the game, the Packers have a 29% chance of making the playoffs. A win increases that to 54%, while a loss drops it to less than 1%. Similarly, Minnesota has a 19% chance to make the playoffs currently, which improves to a 39% chance with a win and drops to a 2% chance with a loss.

The Vikings are one-point favorites at DraftKings Sportsbook. Minnesota has -115 moneyline odds, while Green Bay is installed as the narrow -105 underdog. The point total is set at 43.5.
