With only three weeks remaining in the season, all 32 teams will take the field during Week 15 of the NFL season. With 16 games on the docket, this will be a loaded week of NFL action.
Thursday Night Football will kick off the week in a pivotal AFC West contest. One of the biggest QB duels of the year will take place under the bright lights of SoFi Stadium when Patrick Mahomes and the 9-4 Chiefs will take on Justin Herbert and the 8-5 Chargers. The Chiefs enter the week as the 3rd-seed in the AFC and the top team in the AFC while the Chargers and currently 5th and 2nd, respectively. When these two clubs met back in September in Kansas City, the Chargers defeated their division rivals 30-24. In fact, the Chargers have won their previous 2 games against KC, yet the Red Team leads the all-time series 64-58-1.
Saturday football has returned to NFL Network with a pivotal matchup with major playoff implications. An AFC matchup will kick things off between the top-seeded 9-4 Patriots and the 6th-seed 7-6 Colts. The Colts need a win to keep their season afloat.
The NFC South will be spotlighted at Raymond James Stadium on Sunday Night Football when the 10-3 Buccaneers host the 6-7 Saints. It hasn’t been easy for the team from the Big Easy, as the Saints have dropped 4 of their last 5 but are coming off of a 30-9 road win against the New York Jets. The Bucs have been on a hot streak after winning 4 of their last 5 and are looking to sow up the NFC South with a win against their divisional rival. If Tampa wins the division then Tom Brady will have won the division for both teams that he’s played for.
Originally scheduled for Saturday, Monday afternoon the 6-7 Raiders travel to the Dawg Pound to take on the 7-6 Browns. Both teams are currently out of the playoff race, the Browns are 7th and the Raiders are 12th. For the Raiders, a loss on Saturday will likely end their season, and for the Browns, their playoff hopes will be hanging on by a thread
On Monday Night Football, an NFC North matchup between the 6-7 Vikings and the 4-9 Bears on Monday Night Football. Both teams are on the outside looking in when it comes to the NFC playoff race. The Vikings enter the week sitting at 8th and the Bears are at 15th. Soldier Field in Chicago will be the home of Monday night’s game, and the Chicago faithful would love nothing more than to sink the Vikings’ playoff hopes.
For the second straight year, the NFL returns to Tuesdays due to the pandemic. Fox will host 2 divisional games that will kick off at 7 PM ET. The 5-8 Seahawks will travel to SoFi Stadium to take on the 9-4 Rams. The Seahawks don’t have a chance at making the postseason but a win against LA could hurt the Rams playoff seeding. In the NFC East, another chapter will be entered into the Eagles-Washington rivalry. Both teams are 6-7 and the loser is sure to be eliminated from postseason contention.
