NFL Games on TV Today

Houston at Tampa Bay, 1 p.m. on NFL Network

The Texans can wrap up the AFC South with a victory but the Buccaneers have won four in a row and have a shot at a .500 or better finish. Points shouldn't be a problem with these two offenses, but Jameis Winston is down his top two wide receivers.

Buffalo at New England, 4:30 p.m. on NFL Network

Both teams are in the playoffs but this is still an important game. The Patriots are a win away from an 11th straight AFC East title. The Bills want to prove they are a team that should not be overlooked once postseason play begins. Points may be hard to come by in Gillette Stadium with these two defenses.

Los Angeles Rams at San Francisco, 8:15 p.m. on NFL Network

Saturday's nightcap finds the Rams fighting for their playoff lives against a 49ers team that was shocked last week at home by the Falcons. San Francisco can still take the top seed in the NFC bracket but can't afford any more slip-ups. Los Angeles won't get a chance to defend its conference championship but can play spoiler and shake up the standings.
