The NFL has had a busy Week 15 with the return of Saturday football. Following the close of the college football regular season, the NFL has back-to-back weekends with Saturday and Sunday games. This week, the league has already played four games on the slate and now have 11 on Sunday.
The biggest game of the Sunday 1 p.m. window would probably be Jets vs. Lions. It won’t impact tiebreakers too much, but it’s the only game that involves two teams firmly in the playoff hunt. Both teams are currently in ninth place in their respective conference, although the Lions are a full 1.5 games back, while the Jets are tied with the seventh-place Patriots.
The biggest game in the 4 p.m. window would be Titans vs. Chargers. Tennessee is in first place in the AFC South, but is in the midst of a three-game losing streak. The Chargers are 7-6 and while they remain mathematically alive for the division title, their biggest chance is in the wild card race. They are currently in eighth place overall, losing the conference record tiebreaker with the Patriots, but holding the conference record tiebreaker over the Jets.
Sunday wraps with the Commanders hosting the Giants on Sunday Night Football. Mike Tirico and Cris Collinsworth will call that critical NFC East game. Washington is currently in sixth place and New York is in seventh place in the NFC. They tied two weeks ago and if this game has a winner, they will claim the head-to-head tiebreaker.
Here’s the complete Sunday schedule with game time, announcers, TV channel, and live stream information.
