Week 16 of the 2020 NFL regular season continues with six games on the morning slate.

The best of the bunch features two AFC teams destined for the playoffs. The 10-4 Indianapolis Colts will take on the suddenly-struggling 11-3 Pittsburgh Steelers. The Colts have won five out of their previous six games as they continue their march to the postseason.

After starting the season 11-0, the Steelers have dropped three in a row, including an upset loss to the lowly Cincinnati Bengals last week.

There are three games on the schedule that could end up the San Francisco 49ers’ draft positioning.

The 5-9 New York Giants are on the road to take on Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens, while the 4-10 Houston Texans will host the Bengals.

Elsewhere, the Kansas City Chiefs can lock down the No. 1 seed in the AFC if they can beat the visiting Atlanta Falcons, who are 4-10 on the season.

And the 1-13 New York Jets will go for their second win in a row when they host Nick Chubb and the Cleveland Browns.

What are your predictions for the morning games?
