With all of the Week 17 results confirmed, the NFL Week 18 schedule has been revealed. The Seattle Seahawks’ loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers has put them out of a playoff spot, and they will need a win against the Arizona Cardinals plus a Green Bay Packers loss or tie versus the Chicago Bears in order to reach the postseason.

Seattle’s trip to Arizona has been announced for 1:25 PM PT on FOX, while the Packers and Bears will be the lead late game on CBS at the opposing time. It’s a simultaneous kickoff situation, so there will be no controversy like last season when the Packers played on Sunday Night Football against an already eliminated Detroit Lions squad, while the Seahawks had a 1:25 PM PT kick against the Los Angeles Rams.

The Buffalo Bills and Miami Dolphins will be Game 272 on Sunday night. Winner takes the AFC East and the No. 2 seed, but because of that Pittsburgh win, the Bills could be anywhere from the No. 2 seed to out of the playoffs completely if they lose and the Steelers defeat the Ravens, who have locked up the No. 1 seed.
