The holiday season is upon us and this weekend the NFL will play Week 16 through Christmas on Monday. The schedule opens Thursday Night Football, but then we get a pair of games on Saturday, and a tripleheader on Monday. The first Saturday game will air on NBC and the second will air on Peacock. The Monday tripleheader will feature a CBS national game, a Fox national game, and then the ABC Monday Night Football broadcast.

2023 NFL Primetime Schedule: Week 16

Thursday Night Football, Prime Video

New Orleans Saints vs. Los Angeles Rams

The Saints and Rams are both 7-7 and firmly in the mix for a wild card berth. LA has the conference record tiebreaker for now, but this game will settle the head-to-head tiebreaker. The Rams are a 3.5-point favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook.

Saturday schedule, Peacock

Buffalo Bills vs. Los Angeles Chargers

The Bills are firmly in the AFC wild card race while the Chargers are on the verge of official playoff elimination. Buffalo has won two of three and have made a statement with consecutive wins over the Chiefs and Cowboys. Buffalo is an 11.5-point favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook.

Sunday Night Football, NFL Network

New England Patriots vs. Denver Broncos

The Patriots are playing out the string while the Broncos need a win to keep their playoff hopes from turning dire. They cannot be eliminated after last week’s ugly loss to the Lions, but a loss would all but end their playoff chances. Denver is a 6.5-point favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook.

Monday Night Football, ABC

Baltimore Ravens vs. San Francisco 49ers

We get a Super Bowl preview to close out Week 16. The Ravens have won four straight and eight of nine while the 49ers have won six straight. Both teams have a one-game lead as the No. 1 seed in their respective conferences. San Francisco is a five-point favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook.
