Analysis: Sunday's stacked lineup of games could have playoff ramifications for several teams

A stacked lineup of games Sunday could determine plenty come January. The action kicks off at 9:30 a.m. ET with a marquee matchup between the defending Super Bowl champion Chiefs and Dolphins in the NFL’s first game in Frankfurt, Germany. It’s a potential preview of the AFC championship game. The conference is wide open as the Chiefs, Dolphins, Ravens and Jaguars each have the same record at the season’s midpoint. The Bills and Bengals are also in the mix. They meet Sunday night in Cincinnati so the stakes are high in that playoff rematch. The road to the Super Bowl has gone through Kansas City the last five years.
