NFL schedule Week 15: What games are on today? TV channel, time for Saturday matchup

The NFL calendar has reached that point in the season where there will be no teams to say goodbye. Instead, in Week 15, there will be an additional game on national television in an NFL Network clash on Saturday.

The weekend was originally scheduled for a doubleheader, beginning with the Browns vs. Raiders in the afternoon. However, that game was delayed to Monday due to a series of positive COVID-19 tests in Cleveland, leaving the day alone with the Patriots and Colts for the night.

The showdown will pit NFL offensive rookie of the year favorite quarterback Mac Jones against a possible MVP candidate, running back Jonathan Taylor. The Patriots have given up the most rushing yards in the NFL at 1,488 this season, while the Colts have been solid against the pass, allowing the 12th fewest passing yards at 2,952.

This will be one of only two Saturdays that will feature NFL games the rest of the year. Week 16 will also see a couple of games played on Saturday. During Week 17, all but one game will be played on Sunday, and in Week 18, each game will be played on Sunday.

Sporting News has everything you need to watch Week 15 of the season.

What channel is the NFL game on Saturday?

Here’s how to watch the Patriots versus the Colts.

Patriots at Colts

Although the Chiefs are closing in on them and challenging New England for the No. 1 seed in the AFC, no team in the NFL is more attractive than the Patriots. New England has won seven straight games, and eight of the last nine, to jump to the Bills and claim first place in the AFC East with a 9-4 record. During that winning streak, opponents averaged just 10.4 points per game, with three teams scoring single-digit point totals.

The Colts are coming into the game with a lot of momentum. Indianapolis has won six of its last eight games, with losses only coming to the Titans and Buccaneers. The offense has been on a roll, scoring at least 30 points in all but one of the games, with Taylor averaging 127.6 rushing yards per game during that span.

New England will look to finish its season strong with games against the Bills, Jaguars and Dolphins to end the year. The Colts end the 2021 regular season facing the Cardinals, Raiders and Jaguars.

Kevin Burkhardt and Greg Olsen will be in the Colts-Patriots broadcast booth, and Pam Oliver and Kristina Pink will report from the band.
