NFL Games Today TV Schedule | Week 12

Teams with a bye in Week 12: Kansas City Chiefs and Arizona Cardinals

Pittsburgh Steelers (5-4-1) at Cincinnati Bengals (6-4)

  • Channel: CBS
  • Start time: 1 PM ET
  • Live stream:
    • Sling
    • Hulu + Live TV
    • fuboTV
    • YouTube TV

Things begin immediately with the first divisional matchup of the day. The Steelers come into this Week 12 game only having one loss in the past two weeks on their record, but it feels like two. Their spirited fourth-quarter comeback fell short against the Chargers in Week 11, but the tie against the Lions the week before has Pittsburgh reeling.

Meanwhile, the Bengals bounced back from their two-game losing streak with a win over the Raiders. Cincinnati has already defeated Pittsburgh once this season. Can they complete the sweep at home?

Tampa Bay Buccaneers (8-3) at Indianapolis Colts (6-5)

  • Channel: FOX
  • Start time: 1 PM ET

The Colts’ playoff chances came back from the dead. After a 1-4 start, Indy has won five of its last six games. There’s still work to do, but after the Colts’ Week 11 blowout of the Buffalo Bills, a win over the recently struggling Buccaneers doesn’t seem so far-fetched.

Tampa currently has the league’s best defense against the run, allowing 78.4 yards per game. That will be tested by Colts second-year RB Jonathan Taylor, who has gone over 100 yards rushing the past three weeks.

Carolina Panthers (5-6) at Miami Dolphins (4-7)

  • Channel: FOX
  • Start time: 1 PM ET
  • Live stream:
    • Sling
    • Hulu + Live TV
    • fuboTV
    • YouTube TV

Another team that has seemingly risen from the dead, the Dolphins are riding a three-game win streak into today after starting the NFL season 1-7. QB Tua Tagovailoa is growing with every game and threw a beautiful 65-yard touchdown to WR Mack Hollins against the Jets in Week 11. The Dolphins defense will need to tighten up against Cam Newton and the Panthers.

Tennessee Titans (8-3) at New England Patriots (7-4)

  • Channel: CBS
  • Start time: 1 PM ET
  • Live stream:
    • Sling
    • Hulu + Live TV
    • fuboTV
    • YouTube TV

Today, this Week 12 NFL game sees head coach Mike Vrabel and the Titans heading north to take on his former head coach Bill Belichick and the Patriots. The AFC is a mess. For every quality victory on someone’s résumé, there’s a huge blemish.

The Titans just saw their six-game win streak go up in flames at the hands of the Houston Texans. That win streak included victories over the Kansas City Chiefs, Buffalo Bills, and Los Angeles Rams. Tennessee is a great football team, and despite the injuries littered across the offense, they’ve found a way to get it done. This game will come down to who wins the matchup between the Titans’ defensive front and Patriots rookie QB Mac Jones.

Philadelphia Eagles (5-6) at New York Giants (3-7)

  • Channel: FOX
  • Start time: 1 PM ET
  • Live stream:
    • Sling
    • Hulu + Live TV
    • fuboTV
    • YouTube TV

The second divisional NFL game today takes us to the NFC East. The Giants are far and away the worst team in the division. The Washington Football Team has had its struggles, but there’s still a sense of hope. New York, however, just fired offensive coordinator Jason Garrett. Things are not looking great despite key offensive players returning from injuries for the Giants.

Meanwhile, the Eagles have won two games and look to keep the momentum going, possibly catching up to a stumbling Dallas squad.

Atlanta Falcons (4-6) at Jacksonville Jaguars (2-8)

  • Channel: CBS
  • Start time: 1 PM ET
  • Live stream:
    • Sling
    • Hulu + Live TV
    • fuboTV
    • YouTube TV

Atlanta’s Week 11 shutout was demoralizing. They had just lost 43-3 a week before to the Dallas Cowboys, and with an even more uninspiring performance, didn’t vindicate themselves the next week.

Jacksonville’s offense has struggled mightily this season to maintain consistency, but a matchup against the Falcons might be what rookie QB Trevor Lawrence needs. Watch out for the surprise Jaguars win this week, but is it a surprise?

New York Jets (2-8) at Houston Texans (2-8)

  • Channel: CBS
  • Start time: 1 PM ET
  • Live stream:
    • Sling
    • Hulu + Live TV
    • fuboTV
    • YouTube TV

One last toilet bowl before heading to the late afternoon window, the Jets head to NRG Stadium today to take on the Texans. Jets rookie QB Zach Wilson returns to action for the first time in four weeks after spraining his knee. Things haven’t been smooth sailing following Mike White’s victory over the Bengals, and Wilson can snap a three-game losing streak today against another bad NFL team.

Houston got its first win since Week 1 with its Week 11 victory over the Titans. Wilson will need to value every possession. Texans QB Tyrod Taylor protects the football well and doesn’t give teams the opportunity for extra possessions.

The final divisional game of the afternoon is an AFC West showdown. The Chargers head to Empower Field at Mile High to take on the Broncos. The Chargers currently sit a half-game back from the AFC West lead. With Kansas City on a bye in Week 12, things come back to even.

Every win becomes imperative, especially divisional games. Denver had a nice two-win stretch against the NFC East but got reminded just how the season had gone with a 30-13 thrashing from the Eagles in Week 10. The bye week will have been beneficial, but the Broncos will need Week 9 Teddy Bridgewater to stand a chance against QB Justin Herbert and the Chargers.

Los Angeles Rams (7-3) at Green Bay Packers (8-3)

  • Channel: FOX
  • Start time: 4:25 PM ET
  • Live stream:

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers has missed practice all week with a broken toe but is still expected to start today. Meanwhile, after a hot 7-1 start to the season, the Rams have lost back-to-back games and head to a not-so-hot place.

As we get later and later into the season, the weather-based home-field advantage becomes more and more prevalent. It’s supposed to be 35 degrees at kickoff in Lambeau Field, while LA enjoys a lovely day in the mid-sixties. Rodgers only needs so much practice when his biggest ally, Winter, has finally returned.

Minnesota Vikings (5-5) at San Francisco 49ers (5-5)

  • Channel: FOX
  • Start time: 4:25 PM ET
  • Live stream:
    • Sling
    • Hulu + Live TV
    • fuboTV
    • YouTube TV

Two mid-tier NFC squads are duking it out in this game today with a possible NFL playoff berth at stake. Both the Vikings and 49ers currently sit at .500 with seven games left in the season.

Minnesota stands as the sixth seed and San Francisco the seventh, but with teams streaking and clubs burning out, you never know what could change. Having that head-to-head victory could be essential for tiebreaking procedures down the road. The 49ers’ secondary will need to contain explosive second-year WR Justin Jefferson from blowing this game wide open.
