The kickoff for the Miami Dolphins' pivotal regular-season finale against the rival New York Jets remains at 1 p.m. Sunday at Sun Life Stadium.
Besides the Dolphins' kickoff time being unchanged, so was the Baltimore Ravens' 1 p.m. road game against the Cincinnati Bengals. The San Diego Chargers play the Kansas City Chiefs at 4:25 p.m.
Under the simplest of NFL playoff tiebreaker scenarios, the Dolphins need to defeat the Jets combined with either a Ravens loss or a Chargers win to earn the sixth and final playoff berth in the AFC.
If there's a three-way tie between the teams to finish the season, the Dolphins hold the edge because of their 7-4 conference record over the Ravens' 6-5 conference record and the Chargers' 5-6 mark.
If the Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Cleveland Browns next week and the Dolphins, Ravens and Chargers all lose, the Steelers would earn the final playoff spot.
The Bengals have already clinched the AFC North, but still have something to play for against the Ravens. They have a shot at becoming the second seed in the AFC and earning a first-round bye if they defeat the Ravens and the New England Patriots lose to the Buffalo Bills.
Under the NFL's flex scheduling for the final weekend of the regular season, the Dallas Cowboys-Philadelphia Eagles game will be played at 8:30 p.m. on NBC.
