NFL 2021 Season Week 16 Thread

I feel the need to point out these dates and times aren't set in stone.

Thursday Night Football

San Francisco 49ers at Tennessee Titans, 6:20 p.m., NFL Network

The 49ers are 8-6 on the season and are quickly becoming the team no one wants to face in the postseason.

Saturday games

Cleveland Browns at Green Bay Packers, 2:30 p.m., Fox, NFL Network, Amazon

The Packers look like the cream of the crop in the NFC right now.

Indianapolis Colts at Arizona Cardinals, 6:15 p.m., NFL Network

The Colts enter this game with momentum, while the Cardinals enter it with questions.

Sunday early games

New York Giants at Philadelphia Eagles, 11 a.m., Fox

The Eagles must win this game to stay alive in the NFL playoff race.

Los Angeles Rams at Minnesota Vikings, 11 a.m., Fox

Both of these teams really need a victory to help their playoff cause.

Buffalo Bills at New England Patriots, 11 a.m., CBS

Buffalo is fighting for its playoff life in the crowded AFC.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Carolina Panthers, 11 a.m., Fox

The Buccaneers have a prime chance to bounce back from that clunker against the New Orleans Saints in Week 15.

Jacksonville Jaguars at New York Jets, 11 a.m., CBS

The winner of this game loses in the NFL draft order.

Detroit Lions at Atlanta Falcons, 11 a.m., Fox

The Lions have to be the best 2-11-1 team in the history of the NFL after their win over the Cardinals.

Los Angeles Chargers at Houston Texans, 11 a.m., CBS

The Chargers can't afford to slip up in Houston.

Baltimore Ravens at Cincinnati Bengals, 11 a.m., CBS

Both of these teams are 8-6 on the season, so this game is obviously critical for playoff hopes.

Sunday late games

Chicago Bears at Seattle Seahawks, 2:05 p.m., Fox

This could be a sneaky great matchup between two teams that are not giving up on the season.

Pittsburgh Steelers at Kansas City Chiefs, 2:25 p.m., CBS

The Chiefs are once again the favorites in the AFC and a win here would put them in a great spot to get the No. 1 playoff seed.

Denver Broncos at Las Vegas Raiders, 2:25 p.m., CBS

A loss here for either of these teams likely ends their playoff chances.

Sunday Night Football

Washington Football Team at Dallas Cowboys, 6:20 p.m., NBC

The Cowboys are suddenly in the race for the top seed in the NFC.

Monday Night Football

Miami Dolphins at New Orleans Saints, 6:15 p.m., ESPN

These teams still have a shot at the postseason, but a loss here would really hurt their chances.

Wow. You'd think they'd at least find someone who's played football in his life before.

(I know what you mean, never played an NFL game before. The way you worded it seemed like it was some guy who's never even played football ever)

At one point I was doubtful the Chiefs would make the playoffs. Now they have a chance to have home field advantage.

That seems a bit surprising but not shocking. Probably too late for fantasy but I took a shot anyway.

A.J. Brown activated from IR and expected to play tonight. Maybe I do have a lineup choice to make on Thursday after all.

I don’t feel like this was intended to blame Lockett, but it kinda came out that way.

Why no TNF on Fox or Amazon Prime instead of only NFL Network?

Packers / Browns on Saturday is on Prime and Fox.
I think the TNF game on Prime has been a Fox simulcast, and Fox is doing the Saturday game.

This is the last Thursday game. One NFLN exclusive left (X-mas night).

Week 17 is all Sun/Mon.

Week 18 is 2 flexed to Saturday (to ABC/ESPN) and the rest Sun.

I couldn't remember if there was another week of this or not. Apparently not.

Olsen's mike going quiet was perhaps the best part of the broadcast, shame it didn't stay off.

Not sure if it was the camera angle, but I swear every FG or XP looked just wide.

Re: NFL 2021 Season Week 16 Thread

The Titans figured out their best offensive play was to just throw it to AJ Brown.

It helped that Jimmy G sucked for the most part aside from that first TD drive.
