Following more highlights and exciting NFL finishes in Week 16, there has been another big shakeup in the latest odds to win Super Bowl LV.

The Kansas City Chiefs held off the Atlanta Falcon's last second missed field goal to win 20-17. Kansas City (14-1) is the top overall seed in the AFC and remains the prohibitive favorite at +190 odds to win Super Bowl LV according to the latest odds from FanDuel Sportsbook.

The Green Bay Packers pounded the Tennessee Titans 40-14 on Sunday Night Football as league MVP favorite Aaron Rodgers tossed 4 touchdown passes to give him a league-leading 44 on the season. Green Bay (+550) is the second choice to win the Super Bowl.

The Seattle Seahawks (11-4) won the NFC west with a 20-9 win over the Los Angeles Rams. Seattle's Super Bowl odds improved to +1100 while the Rams (9-6) dropped to +2200.

A bigger hit to the Rams Super Bowl hopes happened in the loss too, as QB Jared Goff suffered a dislocated right thumb and will miss the key Week 17 contest against the Cardinals (8-7), and potentially the playoffs if the Rams qualify. Los Angeles needs a victory at home over the Cardinals or a Bears loss to earn a postseason berth. The Rams hopes hinge on third-year QB John Wolford, who has never thrown an NFL pass.

The Indianapolis Colts are one of five AFC teams at 10-5 after blowing a 24-7 lead at Pittsburgh to lose 28-24. Indy can still win the AFC South but needs to beat the Jaguars at home and have the Titans lose to the Texans. The Colts could also miss the playoffs, and the Colts' Super Bowl odds are now +2800, while the AFC North champion Steelers (12-3) are at +2000. The Cleveland Browns' 23-16 loss to the New York Jets dropped Cleveland to 10-5 and its Super Bowl odds fell to +4400.

But on Saturday in Las Vegas, the Miami Dolphins (10-5) completed a Miami miracle with a last-second field goal to beat the Raiders 26-25 and keep their playoff hopes alive in a huge turnaround season from five wins last year. Miami's Super Bowl odds are still long at +6500, as the Dolphins travel to Buffalo to take on the AFC East champs in Week 17.

The disgraceful division in the NFC East comes down to Week 17 after the Washington Football Team (6-9) lost to the Carolina Panther and the Dallas Cowboys (6-9) destroyed the Philadelphia Eagles. A Week 17 win by Washington at Philadelphia would secure the NFC East and a home playoff game for the Football Team, Washington and Dallas' Super Bowl odds remain slim with both at +13000.

The New Orleans Saints (+750), Buffalo Bills (+1000), Tampa Bay Buccaneers (+1200) and Baltimore Ravens (+1300) also remain Super Bowl contenders following Week 16 action.

Look for more subtle shifts in the Super Bowl odds in Week 17 as the playoff positions are decided.
