NFL Viewing Guide: What Week 16 Games Are on in Your TV Market


As we near the end of the season, the playoff races are getting red hot which means while we have some awful games on the menu we have some serious showdowns that can shape the face of the postseason. CBS has perhaps the most intriguing game when it comes to games that could impact the playoffs in the Steelers-Bengals game. With the Jets loss last Monday night, the race for the final two AFC wild card spots are up to three teams in the Steelers, Bengals and Colts. It’s assumed the Colts will make it into the playoffs meaning this Sunday afternoon game could have massive ramifications. Not only could the Bengals move into a really good playoff position, they can still win the AFC North.

So it’s safe to say a lot is on the line.

FOX gets some alright games like the Saints-Cowboys and Giants-Ravens, but in terms of playoff-caliber games, CBS is sitting pretty this week.
