The NFL wraps up its regular-season schedule on Sunday, while there is action in the NBA, NHL and men’s and women’s college basketball to look forward to on a busy final Sunday of 2013.

NFL: Denver Broncos at Oakland Raiders, 1:25 p.m.
Is this Dennis Allen’s last game as coach? Can Peyton Manning break Drew Brees’ single-season record for passing yards? Can the Broncos eclipse the 2007 New England Patriots as the highest-scoring team in NFL history?

Terrelle Pryor, meanwhile, will make his first start at quarterback for the Raiders in six weeks.

NFL: San Francisco 49ers at Arizona Cardinals, 1:25 p.m.
The Cardinals could finish 11-5 with a victory and still miss the playoffs. That’s what happens if they win and the New Orleans Saints do, as well. For the 49ers, there is still a possibility of a No. 1 seed (beat the Cardinals, get losses from Carolina and Seattle), the No. 2 seed (beat the Cardinals, get a Seattle loss), the No. 5 seed (win) or the No. 6 seed (lose and New Orleans wins).

WOMEN’S BASKETBALL: Lafayette Leopards at Cal Golden Bears, 2 p.m.
The Golden Bears are 4-1 at Haas Pavilion so far this season, with the lone loss coming to No. 2 Duke on Nov. 10. Lafayette is 6-4, but 6-4 in the Patriot League doesn’t necessarily leave a team ready to face an upper-echelon Pac-12 club.

COLLEGE BASKETBALL: UC Riverside Highlanders at Sacramento State Hornets, 2:05 p.m.
The Nest will be buzzing as the Hornets welcome in the Highlanders for a non-conference tilt.

NBA: Golden State Warriors at Cleveland Cavaliers, 3 p.m.
The Warriors take a four-game winning streak out on the road for their seven-game Eastern swing, which opens at Cleveland. The Cavaliers have suspended center Andrew Bynum indefinitely and are reportedly shopping the big man.

NBA: Sacramento Kings at San Antonio Spurs, 4 p.m.
The Kings go to San Antonio, where they last won on Jan. 20, 2012. But Sacramento has lost 11 of its last 12 to the Spurs at the AT&T Center.

COLLEGE BASKETBALL: Cal Poly Mustangs at Stanford Cardinal, 4 p.m.
The Cardinal finish up their pre-conference schedule looking to improve to 9-3 coming off a loss to Michigan in Brooklyn.

NHL: Anaheim Ducks at San Jose Sharks, 7:30 p.m.
The Ducks and Sharks play the first of a home-and-home series at the SAP Center, where the Sharks have beaten Anaheim three straight times, including a 4-3 shootout victory on Nov. 30.
