Week 15 NFL Saturday Schedule: AFC games get national air time on NFL Network

The Texans suit up early and try to extend their division lead, while the Browns are still in the playoff hunt despite a 5-7-1 record.

NFL: Cleveland Browns at Houston Texans John Glaser-USA TODAY Sports

Now that college football’s regular season is over, the NFL is able to play a few games on Saturdays. Week 15 sees a pair of pro games taking place on Saturday, as a foursome of AFC teams are in action today.

Only one appears headed for the playoffs, as the Houston Texans appear to be in solid command of the AFC South. They are traveling to the East Coast this week, however, taking on the 4-9 Jets in the Meadowlands in today’s early game.

Then in the evening we have the Browns and Broncos, two teams sitting below .500. The Browns still have something to play for, however; because of the Pittsburgh Steelers’ recent collapses, there is still a pathway for Cleveland to win the division by winning out and finishing 8-7-1. The Browns have not beaten Denver in any of their past 11 tries, but perhaps there’s something different about this team now that Hue Jackson is gone.

Tune in throughout the afternoon and evening and join us in the comments as we follow along with today’s games.
