The NFL Network’s tripleheader features at least four teams in playoff positions entering Week 15, including the week’s best game as the Dolphins head to Buffalo to take on the Bills on Saturday night.

Sunday, Dec. 18
Dallas Cowboys (10-3) at Jacksonville Jaguars (5-8) (Red): Kevin Burkhardt, Greg Olsen

Atlanta Falcons (5-8) at New Orleans Saints (4-9) (Yellow): Adam Amin, Mark Schlereth
New England Patriots (7-6) at Las Vegas Raiders (5-8) (Green, 4:05 p.m. ET): Kenny Albert, Jonathan Vilma
Arizona Cardinals (4-9) at Denver Broncos (3-10) (Orange, 4:05 p.m. ET): Chris Myers, Robert Smith
FOX’s best game is Cowboys-Jaguars so it will send that one to most of the country. The network also picked up Patriots-Raiders for the 4:05 window after the league flexed the game out of Sunday Night Football.
CBS (Early Window)
Detroit Lions (6-7) at New York Jets (7-6) (Red): Ian Eagle, Charles Davis
Kansas City Chiefs (10-3) at Houston Texans (1-11-1) (Blue): Kevin Harlan, Trent Green
Pittsburgh Steelers (5-8) at Carolina Panthers (5-8) (Green): Greg Gumbel, Adam Archuleta
The NFL crossflexed Lions-Jets over to CBS in order to give them a solid lead game to pair with Chiefs-Texans in the early window. The third game is an intriguing matchup since Carolina actually controls its destiny in the NFC South and can win the division title by winning out, making their game with Pittsburgh very important for the Panthers.
CBS (Late Window)
Cincinnati Bengals (9-4) at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (6-7) (Red): Jim Nantz, Tony Romo
Tennessee Titans (7-6) at Los Angeles Chargers (7-6) (Blue): Andrew Catalon, James Lofton
Jim Nantz and Tony Romo will be in Tampa to see if Tom Brady can re-establish the Buccaneers as playoff contenders with a big win over Joe Burrow and the Bengals. The other game in the late window has massive playoff implications as the Titans head to Los Angeles to take on the Chargers.
Sunday Night Football (NBC)
New York Giants (7-5-1) at Washington Commanders (7-5-1): Mike Tirico, Cris Collinsworth
These two teams tied two weeks ago and the NFL flexed in this game which all but ensures the winner goes to the playoffs while the loser will have to fight hard to get in over the final few weeks of the regular season.
Monday, Dec. 19
Monday Night Football (ESPN/ABC)
Los Angeles Rams (4-9) at Green Bay Packers (5-8): Joe Buck, Troy Aikman
This game looked much better prior to the season which is why it was slated to be simulcast on both ESPN and ABC. The good news is that the Manningcast is available as Peyton and Eli wrap up their regular season slate with this contest.
