Week 10 of the 2020 NFL season has 12 games on Sunday
Week 10 of the NFL season continues on Sunday, Nov. 15, with 12 games on the schedule. Despite only one current playoff team sitting out this week — the Chiefs will join the Falcons, Cowboys, and Jets on bye — there will only be two matchups pitting teams with winning records against each other. Still, there's plenty to look forward to, particularly with the fantasy football regular season winding down.
Sunday's focus needs to start with the three games involving NFC West teams. First place in this loaded division will be on the line when the Seahawks take on the Rams at SoFi Stadium, and the Cardinals will be jostling for postseason positioning when they take on the AFC East-leading Bills. The 49ers may be in last place at 4-5, but they're very much alive in the race despite a rash of injuries and will travel to play the Saints in the Superdome.
The rest of the slate probably looked better at the beginning of the season, most notably "Sunday Night Football" with the Ravens and Patriots. However, there are plenty of interesting games because of the quarterback battles. In the early slate, Deshaun Watson vs. Baker Mayfield could be entertaining, while Justin Herbert vs. Tua Tagovailoa may give us a glimpse of the future at the position.
So if you're wondering "What NFL games are on today?" know this: There are 12 scheduled for today, Sunday, Nov. 15.
Note: Games are ordered by start time. All times are ET.
NFL Games on TV Today
Houston at Cleveland, 1 p.m. on FOX
Ignore the three-game gap between their records; these teams are largely the same with a -49 and -31 point differential. This has the potential to be an entertaining affair since neither team has shown much defense this season and the Texans have shown new life since firing Bill O'Brien. But the weather could be a huge factor with a forecast that calls for rain in the morning with winds gusts as high as 50 mph during parts of the day.
Washington at Detroit, 1 p.m. on FOX
Sure, this could be easily filed away as the "Who Cares Game of the Week," but fantasy owners have plenty of reasons to watch with rookie running backs Antonio Gibson and D'Andre Swift looking like future stars. And both will have a chance to shine against opponents with bottom-10 rushing defenses.
Jacksonville at Green Bay, 1 p.m. on FOX
Jags-Packers has the honor of being the game with the largest line of the week (13.5 points) — and the only one in double digits. But to be fair to the Jaguars, they do have a thing for finding sixth-round quarterbacks out of the Pac-12. Jake Luton looked solid against Houston in his first start last week, passing 26-of-38 for 304 yards with a touchdown and interception. Green Bay will be a much larger challenge though.
Philadelphia at New York Giants, 1 p.m. on FOX
We've been able to make fun of the NFC East all year because of how bad the teams have been, but if the Eagles win today, they'll move to .500. It's true. But don't sleep on these Giants, which have won two of their last four games and lost the others by a combined three points.
Tampa Bay at Carolina, 1 p.m. on FOX
The Buccaneers are coming off an embarrassing SNF performance against the Saints and have a chance for redemption against another division rival. This has the potential for a high-scoring affair, especially since the Panthers have mostly solved their turnover problem since coughing it up four times in these teams' Week 4 matchup.
Denver at Las Vegas, 4:05 p.m. on CBS
The Raiders are clinging to the last wild-card spot in a three-way tie with the Browns and Dolphins. They'll need to win games like these against teams with losing records after taking care of business against the Chargers last week.
Los Angeles Chargers at Miami, 4:05 p.m. on CBS
The quarterback class of 2020 already looks like a historic one, and fans will get to enjoy Justin Herbert and Tua Tagovailoa's first face-off. It's too early to say who between these two will have a better career (even before considering Joe Burrow), but at least today's winner will get bragging rights.
Buffalo at Arizona, 4:05 p.m. on CBS
Kyler Murray is tied for first among quarterbacks with eight rushing touchdowns, but do you know who is third? Josh Allen, of course! They are very different runners with Murray (5-10, 207) much smaller than Allen (6-5, 237), but their different styles are effective and should make for a fun, scoring-filled game.
Seattle at Los Angeles Rams, 4:25 p.m. on FOX
The Seahawks have the worst defense (455.8 ypg) in the league right now, but Russell Wilson is on a one-man mission to keep them winning. Meanwhile, the Rams are once again looking strong, and this time it's their defense that has them looking so good. We must be in the Upside Down, but at least this rivalry should give us another great game.
San Francisco at New Orleans, 4:25 p.m. on FOX
Five of the last seven games in this series have been decided by four or fewer points, but this game has the potential to get out of hand. With so many injuries, particularly on offense, the 49ers will need to keep this a low-scoring contest to keep it competitive.
Cincinnati at Pittsburgh, 4:25 p.m. on FOX
The Steelers are off to their first-ever 8-0 start and will test that streak against the Bengals, who are fresh off of their bye week after shocking the Titans two weeks ago. Pittsburgh has had several close calls in a row, with road wins against the Cowboys, Ravens, and Titans coming by a combined 12 points.
Baltimore at New England, 8:20 p.m. on NBC
Schedule-makers probably thought this could be a potential playoff preview, but the Patriots will need to turn their season around with a win tonight to make that a reality. The good news is that Cam Newton looked more like himself last week and has a chance to make it a fun battle against Lamar Jackson.
