With only three weeks remaining in the regular season, the playoff picture is getting clearer. In the NFC, the 49ers topped the Saints in a wild game to move into first place in the conference. The Packers moved up to second in the conference with a win over the Redskins. The Seahawks dropped to fifth by losing to the Rams, who kept their playoff hopes alive for another week. In the AFC, the Ravens clinched a playoff birth with a road win against the Bills, and the Chiefs moved to only a game behind the Pats with a win in Foxboro. The Titans won their fourth straight game to catch the Texans, who got blown out at home by the Broncos. You can see all of the Week 14 NFL results here.
Week 14 concludes tonight with the Eagles hosting the Giants. The Eagles are only 5-7 on the year but can move into a tie with the Cowboys for first place in the NFC East with a win tonight. The game kicks off in Philly at 8:15 p.m. ET on ESPN. Here's how cord cutters can watch Monday Night Football without cable -- as well as the rest of the NFL games this season on Thursday nights and Sundays.
How can I watch my local team's NFL games?
For teams in your local market -- Eagles fans in Philadelphia, Giants fans in New York and New Jersey, and so on -- you'll be able to watch your local team's games on a major local network channel.
Games are typically broadcast on CBS and Fox on Sunday afternoons. National broadcasts are shown on NBC on Sunday nights, ESPN on Monday nights and the NFL Network on Thursday nights and Sunday mornings. Most of the Thursday night games are simulcast on Fox, Amazon Prime and Twitch. (Note that CBS is the parent company of CNET.)
There's also NFL RedZone to consider, a channel that springs to life each fall and shows live coverage from around the league with the promise to show you every touchdown from every Sunday afternoon game. It's a great way to watch out-of-market action and essential viewing for fantasy football GMs.
