Week 14 in the NFL starts on Thursday night in Kansas City for a Chiefs divisional matchup with the Oakland Raiders. This game will have playoff implications as the Chiefs are 9-3 and the Raiders 10-2. The Chiefs won the first time these teams played in October, but can they do it again and bring down an Oakland team that has won every game since that loss? This should actually be one of the best Thursday Night Football games of the year.
Sunday in the NFL is jam packed as there are no byes left this season. The Bengals vs Browns games is one of the least intriguing matchups of the week, so if you live outside of the Ohio or eastern Kentucky area, you likely won't get the game on CBS.
Here are this week’s TV maps, courtesy of 506sports.com:
On Fox at 1:00 p.m. will be the Washington vs Philadelphia game. At this point, Bengals fans should be rooting for the Eagles to win, so that they don’t end up with better draft positioning than the Bengals. The Eagles actually will be handing over their first round pick to the Browns, due to Philadelphia’s 2016 trade up to the #2 overall pick. Though, the Eagles will still pick in the first round as they have the Vikings’ first round pick due to the Sam Bradford trade.
Later on FOX will be the Seattle at Green Bay game, for nearly all of the country.
Sunday Night Football will see an NFC East clash between the 11-1 Cowboys and the team who gave them their only loss of the year, the New York Giants. The Giants are coming off a loss to the Steelers, which broke a six-game winning streak. The Giants also lost Jason Pierre-Paul due to a groin injury this week for at least the remainder of the regular season. Can the Giants take down the Cowboys again without their best pass rusher?
The week closes with the Baltimore Ravens and New England Patriots facing off on Monday Night Football. After a big win over the Dolphins last week, opinions about the Ravens are as positive as they've been in two years. Meanwhile, opinions on the Patriots are always favorable when it comes to their ability to win. Who will take home the victory to close out Week 14 in the NFL?
