NFL game tonight: How many games are on the line?
If you think you know the most important NFL game of the year, you are wrong.
A new study by Sports Illustrated found that a game between the Seattle Seahawks and Cleveland Browns could determine who ends up hosting the Super Bowl, but there are many more games to come.
Here are 10 games that will be decided by 10 to 1.
New England Patriots vs. Denver Broncos, Sunday, Jan. 9, 7 p.m.
ET: The Patriots have a chance to become the first team to win five straight games.
If they can beat the Broncos in the first game of this weekend’s slate, they could make the Superdome their home.
The Broncos won the first two meetings between the teams in Denver, including an AFC Championship Game win in the 2006 season.
They haven’t won the last three meetings.
The Patriots won the division last season, and they could be looking for a fourth straight win in this series.
The Denver defense has allowed at least 40 points in three of the past four games, but the Patriots are coming off a dominant performance against the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday night.
Denver quarterback Brock Osweiler is completing 65.7 percent of his passes with four touchdown passes and no interceptions.
His 16 touchdown passes have tied for the most in the league.
Oakland Raiders vs. Tennessee Titans, Sunday: The Raiders are in first place in the AFC West, but they need to get their season back on track if they are to make the playoffs.
The Titans have been one of the league’s better defenses, holding quarterbacks to a combined 40 points and allowing a league-low 23.5 points per game.
That has led to Tennessee’s first win since the All-Pro season of 2016, when the Titans defeated the Los Angeles Rams 34-23.
Tennessee was one of five teams that were outscored 41-0 in a Week 1 win at Indianapolis.
Cleveland Browns vs. New Orleans Saints, Sunday.
The Browns have a bye in Week 2, but it’s a bye week.
They host the New Orleans Pelicans in Week 3.
The Saints haven’t played in the NFL since losing to the Cleveland Browns in Week 6 of last season.
The matchup between the Browns and Saints was one they could not have anticipated.
The two teams have played one another a combined 30 times in their history, including a 38-24 home victory in 2012.
This is the first meeting between the two teams in New Orleans since the 2009 season.
Detroit Lions vs. Miami Dolphins, Sunday.: The Lions are playing in their first Super Bowl since 2008.
It’s an amazing turnaround from a 4-12 season to a 9-6 season in 2015.
The Dolphins are looking to build on their 2015 season by finishing with the best record in the NFC South and making the playoffs for the first time since 2006.
The Lions have had to overcome injuries to starters Calvin Johnson and Ndamukong Suh, but rookie running back Leonard Fournette has been outstanding.
He rushed for 1,722 yards with 21 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.
The defense is giving up just 6.5 yards per play.
Green Bay Packers vs. Arizona Cardinals, Sunday (ESPN/NFL Network): The Packers and Cardinals have played each other six times since 2007.
The Packers won the series in 2013 and 2014, and the Cardinals won in 2012, but these teams haven’t met since 2010.
The game is a rematch of the NFC Championship Game, when Rodgers threw for a season-high four touchdowns and threw for 1
