Your typical non-bye week in the NFL has 14 games taking place on Sunday — that’s sixteen games total minus one each for Thursday and Monday nights.
However, with Saturday football now upon us in week 15, that’s two more games pulled off of Sunday, so we are left with just twelve games on today’s schedule. A few of them are doozies, however, with the Green Bay Packers involved in one of the top matchups of the day.
The Packers’ game against the Carolina Panthers is clearly the highlight of the early schedule, and as such it will be broadcast to the largest number of markets of any of the 1 PM Eastern games. Then in the afternoon, Patriots-Steelers takes center stage, as the top two teams in the AFC face what could effectively be a battle for home-field advantage throughout the playoffs.
Here’s your complete schedule for Sunday’s games.
