NFL Games This Week | Week 15
After one of the best weekends of football in Week 14, the NFL is back with a bang this week, with all 32 teams in action and some of the tastiest matchups possible.
Thursday Night Football
On Thursday Night Football, the flying San Francisco 49ers (9-4) take on the stuttering Seatle Seahawks (7-6) in the race to reach the playoffs. The 49ers have already all but secured their place, but the Seahawks need to win at least one more game to make absolutely sure that their season doesn’t end prematurely. Quarterback Geno Smith will be crucial for Seattle, and it promises to be a fiery clash between the two teams.

Week 15 being a full schedule, with all teams playing, Saturday Night Football makes a rare appearance, with a huge matchup between the 8-5 Miami Dolphins and the high-flying 10-3 Buffalo Bills, led by their fantastic quarterback Josh Allen. The Dolphins have lost a couple games recently after a hot start, and Allen’s incredible run of form this season has put the Bills in prime position to challenge for that elusive Super Bowl they have craved so much this season.
Sunday Night Football
Then, on Sunday Night Football, the evenly matched New York Giants (7-5-1) and Washington Commanders (also 7-5-1) meet, with both teams vying for a coveted playoff position that they have a good chance of achieving. Giants running back Saquon Barkley will be key to the Giants’s success in this matchup, with his powerful running and deft change of pace being one of the brightest points of New York’s season thus far.

Monday Night Football
To round up Week 15, Monday Night Football offers up an intriguing clash between Matthew Stafford’s Los Angeles Rams (4-9) and Aaron Rodgers’s Green Bay Packers (5-8), as both teams try and save some face at the end of hugely disappointing campaigns. Last year’s Super Bowl winning Rams and last year’s MVP Rodgers have not hit the heights at all this time out, and with potential rebuilds happening in the off-season, this could be one of the last chances for some of their rosters to keep their place in their respective teams. Definitely one to watch.
