NFL Week 18 schedule: Lions vs Packers gets Sunday Night Football slot

Fansided

The final NFL Week 18 schedule and times have been released and it’ll be the Lions and Packers on Sunday Night Football to end the regular season.

It’s rare that so much is left undecided heading into the final week of the regular season, but that’s where we are. Because of that, everyone was waiting for the NFL Week 18 schedule to be released. We got our wish on Monday.

Though the Bengals and Bills are yet to play on Monday Night Football in Week 17, which will decide when Cincinnati plays in the finale, we have the full slate for the last games of the regular season. And as you’d expect, the Detroit Lions going to Lambeau Field to face the rival Green Bay Packers is the headliner on Sunday Night Football with both teams still alive for the postseason and needing a win to get in.

There is much more at stake than just that, though, as the Cowboys, Eagles and 49ers can all take the No. 1 seed in the NFC, the Chiefs and Bills can be the No. 1 seed in the AFC, and playoff spots still hang in the balance.

With that, here’s what we have for the NFL Week 18 schedule.

It’s no shock that the two primetime games are as close to win-or-go-home games as we have. That’s basically what’s on the line between the Jaguars and Titans (though there is a crazy scenario in which both teams could get in). And though the Lions do also need a Seahawks loss, the Packers need a win to complete a massive turnaround and make the playoffs.

We absolutely need to buckle up for a wild Week 18, though. Virtually nothing is decided for the playoff race and the stakes will be high.
