The final week of the NFL season will begin Saturday with a doubleheader on the ESPN family of networks.

The Kansas City Chiefs will travel to the Las Vegas Raiders for the early game (4:30 p.m. ET, ESPN/ABC/ESPN+).

The Chiefs have won four straight and at 13-3 are in possession of the top seed in the AFC. If the Buffalo Bills beat the Cincinnati Bengals on Monday night (8:15 ET, ESPN/ABC/ESPN2/ESPN+), the Bills will reclaim the No. 1 seed with the ability to clinch it in Week 18. If the Bengals beat the Bills, the Chiefs keep the top seed, Cincinnati moves to No. 2 and Buffalo No. 3 entering Week 18.

The Jacksonville Jaguars host the Tennessee Titans with the AFC South title on the line Saturday night (8:15 ET, ESPN/ABC/ESPN+).

A win will give the Titans their third straight division title. The Jaguars are looking for their first AFC South title since 2017 and second since the division was formed in 2002.

The rest of the Week 18 schedule will be announced Monday night.
