NFL Week 16 picks: Playoff race will largely be decided Sunday

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sport

The Steelers' minute playoff hopes could be vanquished by the time they kick off against Green Bay, but all that matters is winning and losing.

No more Thursday Night Football. That's a good thing.

Leave all the action for Sunday, where it belongs.

The Steelers' faint flicker of a gimmer of postseason hope resides on Miami losing to Buffalo during the early games, as well as Baltimore losing to New England in the later slate. A Dolphins or Ravens win ends it for the Steelers. Obviously, a loss at Green Bay does the same.

Aaron Rodgers not playing would probably help the Steelers' chances. Little else will, however, but come kickoff, it's simply about winning and losing.
