Indianapolis Colts at Baltimore Ravens (-13.5)

Baltimore (8-6) is playing for the postseason, and Indianapolis (3-11) is playing for the offseason. Chuck Pagano is more than ready to get canned.

Pick: Baltimore 24, Indianapolis 14

Minnesota Vikings (-9) at Green Bay Packers

Minnesota (11-3) wrapped up the NFC North last week with a win over the Bengals. Conversely, Green Bay (7-7) is officially eliminated from playoff contention and starting Brett Hundley. This shouldn’t be much of a contest.

Pick: Minnesota 27, Green Bay 16

Atlanta Falcons at New Orleans Saints (-5.5)

This is the best game of the holiday weekend. The Saints (10-4) can do anything from clinch the NFC South to fall into the sixth seed. Atlanta (9-5) will be very motivated, as a win would vault it over New Orleans and secure a playoff berth. Advantage? Home team.

Pick: New Orleans 34, Atlanta 31

Buffalo Bills at New England Patriots (-11.5)

New England (11-3) knows that home-field advantage is at stake, and Buffalo (8-6) isn’t getting in the way. The Bills will fight hard to stay in the playoff picture, but that won’t be enough.

Pick: New England 38, Buffalo 23

Cleveland Browns at Chicago Bears (-6.5)

If anybody subjects themselves to this on Christmas Eve, they have deep psychological issues.

Pick: Chicago 17, Cleveland 13
