NFL Week 15 TV Coverage Maps
Thursday, Dec. 16
Thursday Night Football (FOX/NFL Network)
Kansas City Chiefs (9-4) at Los Angeles Chargers (8-5): Joe Buck, Troy Aikman
This week’s Thursday night game is arguably the week’s best as the Chiefs travel to Los Angeles to square off with the Chargers in a contest that could decide the NFC West. Joe Buck and Troy Aikman are on the call for the first of two games this weekend.
Saturday, Dec. 18
NFL Saturday Doubleheader (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) at Indianapolis Colts (7-6) (8:15 p.m.): Kevin Burkhardt, Greg Olsen
The NFL Network’s Saturday doubleheader features a pair of AFC playoff matchups but the headliner is the primetime game between the Patriots and Colts. The early game is noteworthy for the Browns, who are coming off a big win but may need to try and score another victory without a litany of players and coaches due to COVID-19 protocols.
Sunday, Dec. 19
Tennessee Titans (9-4) at Pittsburgh Steelers (6-6-1) (Red): Jim Nantz, Tony Romo
New York Jets (3-10) at Miami Dolphins (6-7) (Yellow): Greg Gumbel, Adam Archuleta
Houston Texans (2-11) at Jacksonville Jaguars (2-11) (Orange): Andrew Catalon, James Lofton
Cincinnati Bengals (7-6) at Denver Broncos (7-6) (Blue, 4:05): Ian Eagle, Charles Davis
Atlanta Falcons (6-7) at San Francisco 49ers (7-6) (Green, 4:05): Kevin Harlan, Trent Green
CBS’ top game is the 1:00 clash between the Steelers and Titans which will go to most of its markets. The two 4:05 games both have playoff ramifications while CBS is also stuck with the worst game of the season, the Texans-Jaguars matchup, where all of the attention from that will be centered on what Urban Meyer may say next.
FOX (Early Window)
Dallas Cowboys (9-4) at New York Giants (4-9) (Red): Adam Amin, Mark Schlereth
Washington Football Team (6-7) at Philadelphia Eagles (6-7) (Blue): Kevin Kugler, Mark Sanchez
Carolina Panthers (5-8) at Buffalo Bills (7-6) (Green): Kenny Albert, Jonathan Vilma
Arizona Cardinals (10-3) at Detroit Lions (1-11-1) (Yellow): Gus Johnson, Aqib Talib
FOX’s early window of games is rough to say the least. The Cowboys-Giants matchup is being sent to the vast majority of the country to try and take advantage of national interest in America’s Team.
FOX (Late Window)
Green Bay Packers (10-3) at Baltimore Ravens (8-5) (Red): Joe Buck, Troy Aikman
Seattle Seahawks (5-8) at Los Angeles Rams (9-4) (Blue): Chris Myers, Daryl Johnston
America’s Game of the Week will bring Buck and Aikman to Baltimore as the Ravens try to snap a two-game losing skid against 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 get much distribution 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 the NFC South with a win over the Saints on Sunday night. Mike Tirico will be on the call with Cris Collinsworth as Al Michaels gets the week off.
Monday, Dec. 20
Monday Night Football (ESPN/ABC)
Minnesota Vikings (6-7) at Chicago Bears (4-9): Steve Levy, Brian Griese, Louis Riddick
The heart-attack-inducing Vikings will look to keep themselves afloat in the NFC Wild Card hunt as they hit the road to take on the Bears at Soldier Field. There is no Manningcast again this week but the game will be simulcast on ABC.
