Saturday Football kicks off tonight at 4:30 p.m. ET as the Baltimore Ravens host the Pittsburgh Steelers at M&T Bank Stadium. The Steelers are 3.5-point favorites, according to our friends at DraftKings Sportsbook, and the total is set at 35 points.

And then! At 8:15 p.m. ET, the Indianapolis Colts host the Houston Texans at Lucas Oil Stadium. The Texans are 1.5-point favorites and the total is set at 47.5 points.

Saturday’s games will have a major impact on playoff seedings, especially for the AFC South. If Jacksonville wins at Tennessee on Sunday, the Jaguars will capture the division crown -- if not, the winner of Colts-Texans will earn the AFC South title.

Assuming the Jags fall short in their “win-and-in” Week 18 matchup, they’ll still have a chance to make the playoffs as a Wild Card team. The Steelers and Broncos would each have to lose this weekend in that scenario.

Here are our staff’s picks for tonight’s games.

This is now an open thread. Let us know your Saturday Football thoughts in the comments!
