    It’s week 17 and half of the NFL playoff spots have been secured.

    Much remains to be determined: The NFC East and AFC South will crown their winners on Sunday, while five wild cards remain up for grabs. but there are some teams whose fate will not change depending on the end of the season.

    Reading: Are the saints resting starters

    the chiefs of kansas city are the leaders of the afc. 1 seed and the Buffalo Bills and Pittsburgh Steelers will finish as 2 or 3 seeds. And the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have already punched their postseason ticket, but they can’t win their division.

    Those are the four contenders most likely to bench their starters this week, but other teams could also decide to sit players, so we’ll follow their decisions below and highlight any relevant news in the meantime.



    tickets resting? qb patrick mahomes, wr tyreek hill, wr sammy watkins, rb clyde edwards-helaire

    the chiefs have nothing to play for in week 17. kansas city will have home court advantage and a bye in the first round of the afc. Earlier in the week, Andy Reid said that Chad Henne would make an appearance, but confirmed on Wednesday that Patrick Mahomes would not play at all. henne is the starter for kansas city in week 17.

    mahomes is not the only headline. top weapon tyreek hill is out, as is sammy watkins and clyde edwards-helaire.

    gerry dulac of the pittsburgh post-gazette reported Thursday that three more starters will not participate on Sunday: pouncey, watt and heyward.


    tickets resting? tre’davious white, jerry hughes, cole beasley and mario addison. possibly josh allen.

    Head coach Sean Mcdermott wasn’t ready to commit one way or another following Buffalo’s win over the Patriots on Monday Night Football.

    buffalo may be the no. 2 or not. 3 in the conference, but with the Steelers sitting on Roethlisberger, it’s theoretically easier to rest Josh Allen. the decision matters for the dolphins who play the accounts fighting for a place in the playoffs.

    The betting market may believe that bills will give their holders a rest. Buffalo opened at -4.5 but was steamed on Tuesday.

    That continued on Sunday morning, with news going back and forth on Allen’s status and bill holders. at one point the line was removed from the board and reopened at -3 bills. but then a report about matt barkley moved the line back to the -3 dolphins.

    head coach bruce arians announced the team will play to win in week 17 at home against the falcons.

    “We are going to play to win,” Arians told reporters. “let’s practice and pretend everything depends on it.”

    Actually, a lot depends on it, at least in terms of playoff opponent. A Tampa Bay win means a first-round matchup against any team coming out of the NFC East instead of potentially facing the Seahawks or Saints.
