The National Football League (NFL) is a professional American football league consisting of 32 teams, divided equally between the National Football Conference (NFC) and the American Football Conference (AFC). The NFL is one of the four major North American professional sports leagues, the highest professional level of American football in the world, the wealthiest professional sport league by revenue, and the sport league with the most valuable teams.

The regular season runs from September to December, with each team playing 16 games and having one bye week. Following the conclusion of the regular season, six teams from each conference (four division winners and two wild card teams) advance to the playoffs, a single-elimination tournament culminating in the Super Bowl, which is usually held in February. The league is headquartered in New York City.

Miami Dolphins at Buffalo Bills

The Miami Dolphins will visit the Buffalo Bills this Saturday at 1:00 p.m. EST in an AFC East Divisional matchup. The Dolphins are coming off a disappointing loss to the New England Patriots, while the Bills were able to squeak out a win against the New York Jets.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Carolina Panthers

The NFL has announced that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will play the Carolina Panthers on Saturday, December 19th at 8:00pm ET. This game was originally scheduled to be played on Sunday, but was moved due to the possibility of severe weather in the area.

The Bucs are currently 8-5 and sit atop the NFC South standings, while the Panthers are 5-8 and in last place. Both teams are coming off of losses in Week 14, with the Bucs falling to the New Orleans Saints and the Panthers losing to the Cleveland Browns.

This will be the first meeting between these two teams this season, and they will face each other again in Week 17. The Bucs will be looking to continue their recent success against the Panthers, as they have won four out of their last five matchups.

Green Bay Packers at Chicago Bears

The NFL has announced the four teams who will be playing in this year’s Saturday games. The Green Bay Packers will take on the Chicago Bears, the Houston Texans will battle the Indianapolis Colts, the Los Angeles Rams will face off against the Dallas Cowboys, and the New York Jets will go up against the Miami Dolphins.

Cincinnati Bengals at Cleveland Browns

The Cincinnati Bengals take on the Cleveland Browns in an AFC North battle on Saturday at 1:00 p.m. ET at FirstEnergy Stadium.

Cincinnati is coming off a loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers, while Cleveland is fresh off a victory over the Baltimore Ravens. These two teams have not faced each other since 2019, when the Bengals won 27-17.

The Bengals are looking to avoid going 0-3 against AFC North opponents this season, while the Browns are hoping to pick up their first division win of the year. Cincinnati is favored to win by 3.5 points.

New York Jets at Detroit Lions

On Saturday, the New York Jets will be taking on the Detroit Lions. This is sure to be an exciting game, as both teams are hungry for a win. The Jets are coming off of a tough loss to the New England Patriots, while the Lions were able to squeak out a victory against the Green Bay Packers.

Houston Texans at Indianapolis Colts

The Houston Texans take on the Indianapolis Colts in an AFC South battle on Saturday at 1:00 p.m. ET at Lucas Oil Stadium.

Houston is coming off a loss to the Green Bay Packers in which quarterback Deshaun Watson completed 22 of 28 passes for 212 yards, two touchdowns and one interception. He also rushed for 47 yards on eight carries. On the other side of the ball, Houston’s defense gave up 191 rushing yards and three touchdowns to Packers running back Aaron Jones.

The Colts are coming off a win over the Tennessee Titans in which quarterback Jacoby Brissett completed 17 of 25 passes for 166 yards and one touchdown. Running back Nyheim Hines also had a big game for Indianapolis, rushing for three touchdowns on 45 yards. On defense, the Colts gave up 313 passing yards but only 18 points in total.

Both teams have had their fair share of struggles this season, but this game could be a turning point for either team’s season.

Jacksonville Jaguars at Kansas City Chiefs

It’s Week 1 of the NFL season, and there are two games being played on Saturday. The first is a re-match of last year’s AFC Wild Card game, with the Jacksonville Jaguars visiting the Kansas City Chiefs. The second game is an NFC South battle between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Miami Dolphins.

Baltimore Ravens at Los Angeles Rams

On Saturday, December 5th, 2020, the Baltimore Ravens will be playing against the Los Angeles Rams. The game will be held at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum in Los Angeles, California. The kickoff is scheduled for 4:05pm EST.

Minnesota Vikings at New Orleans Saints

The Minnesota Vikings are set to take on the New Orleans Saints in an NFC Divisional Round playoff game on Saturday, January 14 at 3:40pm CT.

This will be a rematch of the Week 16 game in which the Saints defeated the Vikings 29-24. The Vikings will be looking to avenge that loss and advance to the NFC Championship game.

The Saints, who are the top seed in the NFC, will be playing at home in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. They finished the regular season with a 13-3 record and are coming off a bye week.

The Vikings, who are the sixth seed in the NFC, finished the regular season with a 10-6 record. They defeated the New Orleans Saints 26-20 in overtime in their Wild Card round matchup last week.

The winner of this game will move on to face either the Los Angeles Rams or Dallas Cowboys in next week’s NFC Championship game.

Oakland Raiders at Tennessee Titans

This Saturday, December 8, the Oakland Raiders will be playing against the Tennessee Titans. The game will start at 1:00 pm EST and will be televised on CBS.


The final two games of Saturday’s slate feature some strong defenses, which could make for some low-scoring affairs. The Rams and Cowboys are both in the top 10 in points allowed per game, and the Ravens are right behind them at 11th. The Seahawks have been much better on that side of the ball since acquiring Jalen Ramsey, but they’re still giving up the 23rd-most points per game.
