Who goes head-to-head in NFL games today?
QB Bailey Zappe and the New England Patriots saved fans from a stinker on Thursday Night Football this week. Week 14 has a full Sunday slate with 12 games, as only two teams are on a bye. Here’s how to watch all the NFL games today, including the start time, channel, and live stream options.
Week 14’s Sunday slate features twelve NFL games today. The Arizona Cardinals and Washington Commanders go on a bye to complete the 2023 bye week schedule.
With the season’s last Monday Night Football doubleheader kicking off tomorrow, here’s a look at today’s schedule, which features six divisional matchups, including the latest chapter of the Eagles and Cowboys rivalry on Sunday Night Football. Here’s how to watch every game on Sunday in Week 14.
Let’s kick things off with a divisional matchup as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Atlanta Falcons face off in Mercedes-Benz Stadium. Atlanta finds themselves on top of the NFC South as the division struggles.
Atlanta won against the New York Jets 13-8 as the offensive woes continue for head coach Arthur Smith. Will they string enough plays together to beat the Buccaneers and strengthen their hold on the NFC South? They haven’t responded well in these spots this season, but it’s now or never.
Today’s next divisional game sees the Detroit Lions heading to Soldier Field to take on the Chicago Bears. The Lions head into the divisional tilt fresh off a win against the New Orleans Saints. While the Saints tried to spoil the day with a late comeback, Detroit held off their advances.
The Bears return from their bye week, hoping to see more from Justin Fields over the last five weeks. Chicago fell victim to a late-game comeback from the Lions in Week 11. Can Fields and the offense get and keep a lead this time?
Don’t look now, but the Colts are surging into the AFC playoff race despite the injury to rookie QB Anthony Richardson. While it took overtime to take down the Titans last week, the Colts are running one of the fastest-paced offenses in the NFL under head coach Shane Steichen. Will the pace overwhelm the Bengals?
Meanwhile, Cincinnati finally got back into the win column after losing three games in a row to give any playoff aspirations one more chance. Backup QB Jake Browning shocked the league, completing 32 of 37 passes for 354 yards and a touchdown and punching one in on the ground. NFL fans could be in for a shootout in this one.
Jacksonville Jaguars at Cleveland Browns
It’s not time to sound the alarms in Duval yet, but Jacksonville’s matchup this week against the Cleveland Browns will be huge for the AFC playoff seeding. The Browns have rookie QB Dorian Thompson-Robinson back under center, but they’ll rely on the defense this week. The Browns have allowed 10.2 points per game at home this season. Can they keep the heat on the Jaguars?
There’s a good chance, as Jacksonville is dealing with some injury issues. QB Trevor Lawrence went down with a high ankle sprain on Monday Night Football. He has logged two limited practice sessions and is a game-time decision. If Lawrence can’t play, though, C.J. Beathard will get the nod under center.
It is time for another divisional game as the other half of the NFC South goes head-to-head in Caesars Superdome. The Carolina Panthers are the only team eliminated from playoff contention, and they don’t even own their 2024 first-round pick. They came close to a first-week interim upset, but this team has much to do to rebuild.

Meanwhile, the Saints fell into a 21-0 hole they could not recover from against the Lions. QB Derek Carr remains on the injury report as questionable for his ribs and right shoulder. However, the Saints’ starting QB has cleared the concussion protocol. If the Saints can’t win this game easily, it’s time to begin blowing it up.
The Houston Texans got another huge win last week, taking down an AFC Wild Card competitor in the Denver Broncos 22-17. Things may not be as easy this week, though. The Texans lost their second-leading receiver, rookie Tank Dell, for the season to a fractured left fibula.
The Jets got another poor performance from Tim Boyle. With two embarrassing outings, the Jets released Boyle this week and are turning back to Zach Wilson under center. The offense is what it is, but with Dell out, can the Jets’ defense shut down rookie QB C.J. Stroud and the Texans offense? WR Nico Collins can be the focus of the Jets secondary with Dell sidelined.
After an excellent turnaround from the Rams, it’s time for them to be tested. Can the Rams extend their winning streak to four games as they head to Baltimore to take on the Ravens? The offense has bounced back nicely as players have gotten healthy, specifically with the return of RB Kyren Williams, who has gained 316 yards from scrimmage and three touchdowns in the last two weeks.
However, the Ravens have been the best team in the league this season. They come out of their bye week, winning six of their last seven games with impeccable stats on both sides of the football. Can they keep up their momentum and pressure on Miami for the AFC’s No. 1 seed?
The Minnesota Vikings head to Allegiant Stadium to take on the Las Vegas Raiders in the first matchup of the late-afternoon window. Both franchises enter this game after their bye week refreshed and ready for the season’s final stretch. They are both hoping for a change in fortune this week.
The Raiders have lost two in a row after winning Antonio Pierce’s first two games as a head coach. Meanwhile, the Vikings have a two-game losing streak of their own after rattling off five wins to revive their playoff hopes. With WR Justin Jefferson returning to the offense, can he and QB Joshua Dobbs establish some chemistry and get back in the win column?
As the playoff race ends, the Seattle and San Francisco 49ers face off in an NFC West battle. The Seahawks looked like they could compete with the 49ers early on for the NFC West title. However, a three-game losing streak, including two losses in the division. A win is needed now more than ever.
It won’t be easy, though, cause the 49ers are rolling. After dropping three straight, San Francisco has rattled off four more dominant wins, including last week’s domination of the Eagles. The 49ers went to Seattle two weeks ago and beat the Seahawks 31-13; it’s hard to see things going any other way.
The Bills and Chiefs have provided NFL fans countless classics over the last couple of seasons. Today should be no different, with both teams hungry for a win to help their postseason seeding. The Chiefs need a bounceback after last week’s loss to the Packers. Things will be tough without RB Isiah Pacheco, though.
The Bills have watched their offense improve, scoring 32+ points in back-to-back weeks. Interim offensive coordinator Joe Brady has helped open things back up and let Josh Allen be Josh Allen. Can the Bills QB even his all-time series with Mahomes tonight?
The final game in the late afternoon window features an AFC West battle between the Denver Broncos and Los Angeles Chargers. Both teams are hoping for better performances this week. While the Chargers won last week, they beat the Patriots 6-0. Two field goals are a failure with this offense, and improvements must be made as soon as possible.
On the other hand, the Broncos watched their red-hot five-game winning streak vanish at the hands of the Houston Texans. Denver sits behind Pittsburgh and the Texans for the final AFC Wild Card spot. A win this week would be massive for their chances.
Today’s final NFL game features another divisional matchup. The NFC East takes over prime time as the Philadelphia Eagles take on the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday Night Football. The Eagles caught their second season loss, getting embarrassed by the 49ers 42-19. The offense has been getting by, and it’s clear that Jalen Hurts isn’t 100%.
Meanwhile, the Cowboys are currently playing some of the best offense in the NFL, with QB Dak Prescott making his way into the MVP conversation. A win here bridges the gap and gives the Cowboys a chance to win the NFC East. Can they follow through, or will the Cowboys fold like they have in the past?
