We are on to the weekend of the Week 15 2022 NFL season, a weekend that features both Saturday and Sunday slates of games. Three games will be played Saturday, with 11 games on Sunday. The week will end with a Monday Night Football meeting between the Los Angeles Rams and the Green Bay Packers.
The NFL playoff picture is beginning to be filled, specifically in the NFC. Last week, the Philadelphia Eagles clinched their berth in the playoffs, though they have not officially locked down the NFC East yet. With their Thursday Night Football win to kickoff Week 15, the San Francisco 49ers have now joined the Eagles with a ticket punched for the postseason by clinching the NFC West division title. Throughout the weekend, more teams will punch their ticket into the postseason, or will see their clinching scenarios spoiled for Week 15.
The Saturday games for this week begin with a 1 p.m. ET contest between the Indianapolis Colts and the Minnesota Vikings. The schedule continues with the Baltimore Ravens at the Cleveland Browns at 4:30 p.m. ET. The Saturday schedule concludes with the Miami Dolphins at Buffalo Bills kicking off at 8:15 p.m. ET. All three games are airing on NFL Network.
On Sunday, CBS will have the Detroit Lions at New York Jets, the Kansas City Chiefs at the Houston Texans, and the Pittsburgh Steelers at the Carolina Panthers games in the 1 p.m. ET slot. The early afternoon slot over on FOX will feature the Dallas Cowboys at Jacksonville Jaguars, along with the Philadelphia Eagles at Chicago Bears and Atlanta Falcons at New Orleans Saints games.
CBS has the double-header schedule on Sunday, with the Cincinnati Bengals at Tampa Bay Buccaneers dominating the broadcast areas and kicking off at 4:25 p.m. ET. Regionally, the Tennessee Titans at Los Angeles Chargers will be seen on CBS. Over on FOX, two games get the late-kickoff regional coverage, with the New England Patriots at Las Vegas Raiders and Arizona Cardinals at Denver Broncos game filling those slots.
The Sunday Night Football broadcast on NBC will feature the New York Giants at Washington Commanders game.
