Week 14 of the 2016 NFL season is under way. Here is how to watch all games on NFL RedZone channel.
Week 14 of the 2016 NFL season has gotten off to a great start. The Kansas City Chiefs were able to get a huge win at home over their AFC West rival 21-13 on Thursday Night Football. That win for Kansas City gave the Chiefs the season tiebreaker over Oakland in the AFC West race. The winner of the AFC West will likely get a first-round bye in the AFC Playoffs.
There are still 15 games left on the Week 14 slate in the NFL. Here is how to watch the remaining games on the NFL RedZone channel this week. Unfortunately, the NFL RedZone channel is not free this week and will require a subscription.
Of the nine games on tap in the 1:00 p.m. ET hour, the two best games are the Houston Texans (6-6) at the Indianapolis Colts (6-6) and the Denver Broncos (8-4) at the Tennessee Titans (6-6). A lot of important games involving the AFC South here in the first wave of kickoffs on Sunday, Dec. 11.
The Colts need to beat the Texans to avoid getting swept by Houston this season in AFC South play. That head-to-head tiebreaker would be huge for Houston should the Texans need it to clinch the division.
One could argue this is a must-win game at home for the Titans because a loss to Denver knocks the Titans back considerably in the AFC South race. Denver needs to keep pace with the Kansas City Chiefs and the Oakland Raiders in the AFC West, both of whom are 10-3 through Week 13.
Four games are on during the 4:00 p.m. ET slot on Sunday with the Seattle Seahawks (8-3-1) at the Green Bay Packers (6-6) and the New Orleans Saints (5-7) at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (7-5) the headliners.
Seattle could get one step closer to clinching the NFC West and push for a first-round bye with a win on the road over Green Bay. The Packers have to have this game to keep pace with the Detroit Lions (8-4) in the NFC North.
New Orleans has to have this game over the Buccaneers to stay alive in the NFC South race. 10-6 will probably win the division, but 9-7 is the only shot the Saints have at the division title. A win for Tampa Bay gets the Buccaneers to 8-5 and makes them a serious contender to make the NFC Playoffs, regardless if they win the division.
Sunday Night Football between the Dallas Cowboys (11-1) and the New York Giants (8-4) is massive. Dallas has won 11 straight games since falling at home to the Giants in Week 1 and can secure home-field advantage with a win and losses by the Seahawks and Lions. New York has to win this game to feel like a Wild Card contender.
Monday Night Football between the Baltimore Ravens (7-5) and the New England Patriots (10-2) is another huge game. Baltimore is only ahead of the Pittsburgh Steelers (7-5) by virtue of the head-to-head tiebreaker in the AFC North. New England is pushing for another AFC East crown and presumably a first-round bye in the 2016 AFC Playoffs.
