Both week 17 AFC North finales — the Baltimore Ravens at Cincinnati Bengals and Pittsburgh Steelers at Cleveland Browns — carry serious playoff ramifications.

So it should come as no surprise as to why the NFL decided to move the kickoff times from 1 p.m. ET to 4:15 p.m.

That being said, by around 7:30 p.m. next Sunday night, we should know whether the Ravens (11-4) or Steelers (11-4) are the AFC North champions and whether or not the Bengals (9-6) clinched the conference’s final wildcard spot.
