The Miami Dolphins beat the New York Jets on Saturday, positioning themselves in the AFC Playoff picture and clinching their first winning season since 2008. That game taking place on Saturday night means, as the NFL moves to a busy Sunday schedule, Dolphins fans can sit back, relax, and enjoy a stress-free Sunday.
There is no worry about a late season collapse. There is no nail-biting as Miami takes another game down to the wire. Instead, Sunday is all about enjoying the euphoric glow of having crushed the Jets, completing the first season sweep of the New Jersey-based franchise since 2009, and it is about enjoying the games on TV.
This set of games does include the key game for the Dolphins this afternoon, with the Patriots at the Broncos headlining CBS’s late slate of games. Miami is in sole possession of the second Wildcard position in the AFC with a Denver loss.
The schedule for the late games include:
New England at Denver will be the main late game on CBS airing over nearly the entire country, other than Atlanta and Arizona, where there will be no late game on CBS, and in California and parts of Oregon and Nevada. Those areas will get the Oakland at Chargers game instead.
On Fox, northern Californiam including parts of Nevada and Oregon, Atlanta and most of the rest of Georgia, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Alabama, Kansas City, Minneapolis, Indianapolis, Cincinnati, Columbus, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, and Buffalo will all have the San Francisco at Atlanta game. All of Louisiana, most of Mississippi, Houston, and Arizona will have the New Orleans at Arizona game.
