Playoff places are on the line as the NFL regular season concludes live on Sky Sports this weekend

The New England Patriots need to win to ensure a playoff place in the AFC as they travel to the Buffalo Bills on Sunday, one of the Week 18 games to be shown live on Sky Sports.

The game will be the Bills’ first following the cardiac arrest suffered by Damar Hamlin on the field during their Monday night game at the Cincinnati Bengals. Hamlin remains in a critical condition in hospital but is showing “signs of improvement.”

The NFL has since announced that the postponed Bills-Bengals game will not be resumed or replayed, meaning that both teams – already assured of their playoff places – will have their seedings determined based on win percentage.

Following the action in Buffalo (kick-off, 6pm), we head to Philadelphia for the Eagles’ season-ender against the New York Giants (kick-off, 9.25pm). The home side need to win to wrap up the No 1 seed, a first-round bye and home-advantage through the playoffs. The Giants, meanwhile, are already assured of the No 6 seed in the NFC.

Can the Philadelphia Eagles clinch the No 1 seed in the NFC with a victory at home over the New York Giants?

Should the Eagles lose a third straight, then it opens the door for the San Francisco 49ers to claim the top seed in the conference, or the Dallas Cowboys, who would also pinch the NFC East division from the Eagles with a win and a Philadelphia loss.

As well as the live action over on Sky Sports NFL and Main Event, you can keep up-to-date with the events in all of the other games via NFL RedZone on Sky Sports Mix (from 6pm) as playoff places are won and lost on the final day of the regular season.

Rounding off the Sunday evening triple-header, we join our friends at NBC for Football Night in America and a massive game at Lambeau Field as the Green Bay Packers host the Detroit Lions (kick-off, 1.20am, Monday). The Packers clinch a playoff spot with a win, while a Lions victory would see them claim the last remaining wild card place in the NFC, provided the Seattle Seahawks lose their earlier game to the Los Angeles Rams.
