What Are The Best NFL Games To Watch In Week 16?


Every weekend we have some good games that surprise you and some games that are usually over right after they start.  Find out which NFL games are must-see TV and which ones you can afford to miss.

We’re going to take the three nationally televised primetime games (Washington-Philadelphia, N.Y.-Minnesota and Cincinnati-Denver) out of this because if you’re a football geek like we are, you’re going to be watching no matter what.

Find out which NFL games are must-see TV and which ones you can afford to miss.


1.  Green Bay vs. Arizona

Two of the best quarterbacks in football square off with plenty on the line as Green Bay is still trying to wrap up the NFC North while Arizona is trying to hang around with Carolina for home-field advantage.  This should be a primetime game.

2.  New England vs. N.Y. Jets

The Jets need to keep winning to earn a Wildcard spot and the Patriots are trying to wrap up home-field advantage in the AFC.  The last game between these two was a great one, and now the Jets get a shot at redemption at home.

3.  Carolina vs. Atlanta

All of the attention that Josh Norman is getting is rubbing a lot of people the wrong way, and a few of those people reside in the Falcons locker room.  This will be a knock-down, drag out battle, and history could be thwarted.

4.  Jacksonville vs. New Orleans

Unlike the games mentioned above, this has no playoff implications.  It should still be a lot of fun as we have two very good offenses against two very questionable to bad defenses in a climate-controlled atmosphere.

5.  Houston vs. Tennessee

The Texans have a chance to wrap up the division on Sunday and Zach “Mr. Selfie” Mettenberger is standing in their way.  This could be a sneaky-good game in a week without a ton of premiere matchups.

6.  Indianapolis vs. Miami

7.  Chicago vs. Tampa Bay

8.  Pittsburgh vs. Baltimore

9.  Cleveland vs. Kansas City

10.  St. Louis vs. Seattle

11.  Dallas vs. Buffalo

12.  San Francisco vs. Detroit
