NFL Week 15 TV Coverage Cards
Thursday December 16
Thursday Night Football (FOX / NFL Network)
Kansas City Chiefs (9-4) vs. Los Angeles Chargers (8-5): Joe Buck, Troy Aikman
Thursday night’s game this week is arguably the best of the week as the Chiefs travel to Los Angeles to face the Chargers in a contest that could decide NFC West. Joe Buck and Troy Aikman are on call for the first of two games this weekend.
Saturday, December 18
NFL Saturday Double Schedule (NFL Network)
Las Vegas Raiders (6-7) at Cleveland Browns (7-6) (4:30 p.m.): Joe Davis, Kurt Warner
New England Patriots (9-4) vs. Indianapolis Colts (7-6) (8:15 p.m.): Kevin Burkhardt, Greg Olsen
Saturday’s NFL Network doubles schedule features a pair of AFC playoff games, but the headliner is the prime-time game between the Patriots and Colts. The start to the game is remarkable for the Browns, who are coming off a big win but may have to try for another win without a litany of players and coaches due to COVID-19 protocols.
Sunday December 19
CBS (single header)
Tennessee Titans (9-4) vs. Pittsburgh Steelers (6-6-1) (red): Jim Nantz, Tony Romo
New York Jets (3-10) vs. Miami Dolphins (6-7) (Yellow): Greg Gumbel, Adam Archuleta
Houston Texans (2-11) vs. Jacksonville Jaguars (2-11) (Orange): Andrew Catalon, James Lofton
Cincinnati Bengals (7-6) vs. Denver Broncos (7-6) (Blue, 4:05): Ian Eagle, Charles Davis
Atlanta Falcons (6-7) vs. San Francisco 49ers (7-6) (Green, 4:05): Kevin Harlan, Trent Green
The best game on CBS is the 1 hour clash between the Steelers and the Titans that will go to most of its markets. The two 4:05 games both have playoff ramifications as CBS is also stuck with the worst game of the season, the Texans-Jaguars game, where all the attention will be on what Urban Meyer might say next. .
FOX (Early Window)
Dallas Cowboys (9-4) vs. New York Giants (4-9) (red): Adam Amin, Mark Schlereth
Washington Football Team (6-7) vs. Philadelphia Eagles (6-7) (Blue): Kevin Kugler, Mark Sanchez
Carolina Panthers (5-8) vs. Buffalo Bills (7-6) (Green): Kenny Albert, Jonathan Vilma
Arizona Cardinals (10-3) vs. Detroit Lions (1-11-1) (Yellow): Gus Johnson, Aqib Talib
FOX’s first window of play is difficult to say the least. The Cowboys-Giants game is sent to the vast majority of the country to try and profit from the national interest in the American team.
FOX (late window)
Green Bay Packers (10-3) to Baltimore Ravens (8-5) (red): Joe Buck, Troy Aikman
Seattle Seahawks (5-8) vs. Los Angeles Rams (9-4) (Blue): Chris Myers, Daryl Johnston
The American game of the week will bring Buck and Aikman to Baltimore as the Ravens try to break a two-game losing skid to Aaron Rodgers and the Packers. The other game in this window is an intriguing NFC West showdown between the Seahawks and Rams that won’t be distributed much outside of NFC West territories.
Sunday Night Football (NBC)
New Orleans Saints (6-7) at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (10-3): Mike Tirico, Cris Collinsworth
The Buccaneers will look to wrap up NFC South with a win over the Saints on Sunday night. Mike Tirico will be on call with Cris Collinsworth as Al Michaels takes a week off.
Monday, December 20
Monday Night Football (ESPN / ABC)
Minnesota Vikings (6-7) vs. Chicago Bears (4-9): Steve Levy, Brian Griese, Louis Riddick
Heart attack-inducing Vikings will seek to stay afloat in the hunt for NFC wild cards as they hit the road to take on the Bears at Soldier Field. There is no Manningcast this week yet, but the game will air simultaneously on ABC.
