The Sports Kings NFL Weekly Countdown Show New Years Day 1/1/17


Happy New Year!!!!!!!!!

Special Guest- Former Defensive end and 2-time Super Bowl Champion Jim Jeffcoat join the Sports Kings to talk Dallas Cowboys

It’s the final push for NFL teams as the regular season ends on Sunday, January 1. All 16 games are division contests. And with one week to go, there are still 14 teams in contention for a trip to Super Bowl LI. 

The schedule is set for Week 17, culminating with the final game of the 2016 regular season (#Game256) to determine th​e NFC North winner. On Sunday night in primetime (8:30 PM ET, NBC), the Detroit Lions (9-6) will host the Green Bay Packers (9-6) at Ford Field with the division title on the line. And, depending on the results of Sunday’s earlier games, the loser of this contest could be out of the playoff picture entirely.

The playoff teams in the AFC are locked in – New England (13-2), Oakland (12-3), Kansas City (11-4), Pittsburgh (10-5), Miami (10-5) and Houston (9-6) – although there’s still plenty to play for in Week 17.

In the NFC, three of the four NFC division winners have been determined: Dallas (NFC East), Atlanta (NFC South) and Seattle (NFC West). The Cowboys (13-2) have secured home-field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs. The Falcons (10-5) can earn the No. 2 seed and a first-round bye with a win or losses by both Seattle and Detroit. The Seahawks (9-5-1) can lock up the No. 2 seed and a first-round bye with a win and an Atlanta loss.

The Sports Kings NFL Weekly Countdown Show hosted by MeanGene "The Sports Machine" airs Sunday's at 6am (est) on and SiriusXM Channel 93
