The Jaguars v. Patriots, Texans v. Dolphins, and Ravens v. Steelers all feature early game match-ups with significant playoff implications. If the Jags or Steelers lose, they are pretty much out of it. The winner of the Texans v. Dolphins game is still in the mix, but the loser is just about out. So, expect some fierce competition. The Patriots are fighting to secure the #3 seed, and the Ravens very much need to beat the Steelers if they want to hold onto their current #5 spot in the playoffs.
