The regular season of the NFL year is coming to an end as Week 16 games continue today with seven former Kentucky players in action.

Pittsburgh Steelers vs. New York Jets (Benny Snell Jr., Bud Dupree)

The Steelers are hoping to get back on track this week as they must win to secure the sixth seed in the AFC playoffs. Bud Dupree should have a big day as the Jets offensive line is one of the worst units in football.

New Orleans Saints vs. Tenneesee Titans (Wesley Woodyard)

Without Derrick Henry the Titans face a tall task as Drew Brees brings the red-hot Saints into Nashville with playoff implications looming. Unfortunately, Larry Warford will miss today’s game as he recovers from a leg injury sustained on Monday Night Football.

Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Atlanta Falcons (Josh Allen)

In a game that does not mean much for either team, Josh Allen is hoping to continue an impressive rookie season that consists of 28 tackles, 10 sacks, and two forced fumbles.

 Arizona Cardinals vs. Seattle Seahawks (Corey Peters)

The Seahawks must win to keep pace with the 49ers in the race for the NFC West. In 14 games, Corey Peters has totaled 32 tackles and 2.5 sacks in his 9th year in the NFL.

Dallas Cowboys vs. Philadelphia Eagles (Randall Cobb)

A huge game for both teams as the NFC East is up for grabs in Philidelphia. Randall Cobb may play a big role as the Eagles secondary has been a weakness all season long.

Green Bay Packers vs. Minnesota Vikings (Za’Darius Smith)

Another important game for playoff seeding, the Packers are hoping to upset the Vikings as star running back Dalvin Cook is out with a chest injury. Za’Darius Smith could have a big day as the Vikings o-line struggles against pressure off the edge.
