Week 17 NFL scores update: Vikings make playoff push in Minneapolis

USA TODAY Sports

The Minnesota Vikings and San Francisco 49ers have a lot in the balance

The late games have huge playoff implications in the NFC playoff picture, here are your score updates in the NFL's 4 p.m. slate of games.

Win and they're in -- the path is clear for the Minnesota Vikings as they look to eliminate their division rival Chicago Bears. A victory at home against the Green Bay Packers would set up a rematch as early as next week with the Packers, as the teams would meet in the Wild-Card round.

Over in the NFC West, the San Francisco 49ers are also pulling for Minnesota Vikings win, as it would ensure a first-week bye for the 49ers. Up by three touchdowns over the Arizona Cardinals, it doesn't look like the Seattle Seahawks will find a back door into winning the NFC West, as they needed a win today and a 49ers loss to capture the division.

Minnestota Vikings- 27 vs. Green Bay Packers- 24

San Francisco 49ers- 27 vs. Arizona Cardinals- 6

Seattle Seahawks- 13 vs. St. Louis Rams- 13

New England Patriots- 21 vs. Miami Dolphins- 0

Denver Broncos- 38 vs. Kansas City Chiefs- 3

San Diego Chargers- 24 vs. Oakland Raiders- 14
