We’re treated to three games for Week 15 late kickoff, with at least one game having some interest for Saints fans. Here’s how the matchups play out for the afternoon:
- Los Angeles Rams (9-4) at Seattle Seahawks (8-5)
- New England Patriots (10-3) at Pittsburgh Steelers (11-2)
- Tennessee Titans (8-5) at San Francisco 49ers (3-10)
Should the Seahawks pull off a victory over the Rams, the Saints would jump to the No. 3 playoff seed (assuming they win against the Jets). It’s an NFC West showdown that is sure to entertain, as Los Angeles looks to rebound after a bitter defeat against the Philadelphia Eagles. The same could be said after Seattle lost to the Jacksonville Jaguars in what ended as an ugly affair.
Meanwhile, we could have an early glimpse at the AFC Championship with the Patriots facing the Steelers. Both teams are playing strong football, but a rare loss to the Miami Dolphins last week could spark the Patriots.
