The Pittsburgh Steelers and the Philadelphia Eagles both clinched NFL division titles on Sunday and moved a step closer to gaining homefield advantage in the playoffs.
But the Eagles may have to play the postseason without their starting quarterback Carson Wentz.
Philadelphia's star QB Wentz injured his left knee late in the third quarter of the Eagles' 43-35 win over the Los Angeles Rams amid fears he may have a torn anterior cruciate ligament.
Wentz, who is among the leading NFL MVP candidates, will have an MRI on Monday.
The win over the Rams (9-4) clinched the NFC East for the Eagles (11-2). Philadelphia would have clinched the division title with a Dallas Cowboys loss, but they rolled to a 30-10 win over the New York Giants.
The Steelers, already without leading tackler Ryan Shazier, held off the Baltimore Ravens to wrap up the AFC North with a 39-38 win.
Pittsburgh (11-2) are the AFC's top seed and can move toward securing homefield advantage throughout the AFC playoffs with a win next week over the New England Patriots (10-2). Reigning Super Bowl champions New England have already clinched the AFC East and can keep pace with the Steelers by beating the Miami Dolphins on Monday.
The Steelers could have clinched a playoff berth earlier in the day with a Buffalo Bills loss, but the latter outlasted the Indianapolis Colts in a blizzard for a 13-7 overtime win.
The Steelers and the Eagles were two of seven teams that could have clinched a playoff berth in week 14, but the only two that did.
The Minnesota Vikings (10-3) were denied the NFC North for at least a week with a 31-24 loss to the Carolina Panthers (9-4). Minnesota also could have clinched the division with losses by the Green Bay Packers and the Detroit Lions, but they both won on the road.
FITZGERALD CELEBRATES NFL MILESTONE
Arizona Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald is now third all time in receiving yards. He caught five passes for 44 yards on Sunday in a 12-7 win over the Tennessee Titans to pass Randy Moss.
Fitzgerald trails only Jerry Rice and Terrell Owens for most receiving yards in NFL history.
PANTHERS BREACH VIKINGS
The longest run the Vikings defense had allowed all season was 37 yards. Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart broke off a 60-yard scamper to get Carolina on the board first in Sunday's win at Bank of America Stadium.
Cleveland Browns receiver Josh Gordon scored his first touchdown in four years on Cleveland's opening drive of Sunday's 27-21 overtime loss to the Packers.
While Gordon got things going early, it was Davante Adams who closed it out late with a 25-yard catch and run in overtime.
Also going to overtime was the Snow Bowl in Buffalo as the Bills beat the Colts on LeSean McCoy's 21-yard touchdown run.
CARR HONEST AFTER RAIDERS LOSS
Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr on the 26-15 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs: "There is no easy way to put this one. We sucked."
Packers quarterback Brett Hundley on the number of Green Bay fans in Cleveland: "It was unreal, felt like a home game. It was crazy to run out and hear the fans chanting 'Go Pack, go.'"
