USA TODAY Sports Week 18 NFL picks: Los Angeles Chargers or Las Vegas Raiders with wild card at stake? – USA TODAY


The NFL’s first 17-game regular season concludes this weekend, the final game quite the cherry on top as the Los Angeles Chargers take on the Raiders in Las Vegas for what may very well be the final playoff spot in the 14-team field. Regardless of whatever else happens this weekend, the Bolts or Silver and Black can guarantee themselves postseason entry with a win Sunday night. 

Elsewhere, the AFC’s No. 1 seed, two division titles (AFC East, NFC West) and seeding have yet to be determined.

Beyond that? Good luck picking a lot of these games. Resting players, season-ending injuries and COVID-19 will likely all conspire to create some unexpected outcomes as 18 teams prepare to head into the offseason.
