NFL Week 16 TV Schedule, Sunday Football: Jets-Bears, Giants-Packers, Vikings-Eagles

New York Jets at Chicago Bears, 1, CBS: Atlanta Falcons fans who don’t want to face the Eagles in the playoffs should root for the Bears to take the NFC’s No. 2 seed. The Bears need to keep winning to do it, and Mark Sanchez is a much better quarterback on the road than he is at home, for whatever crazy reason.

San Francisco 49ers at St. Louis Rams, 1, Fox: This Niners team has a decent shot at making the playoffs with a 7-9 record. The Rams could spoil everything by sliding in at 8-8, depriving us of at least a few of our best NFC West jokes, but San Fran and Seattle still stand a chance. Mike Singletary’s squad needs to beat the Rams on the road so the impossible dream can come one step closer.

Houston Texans at Denver Broncos, 4:05, CBS: Tim Tebow’s starting again! Considering the Texans have one of the worst secondaries in recent NFL history, and one that the Falcons fan was assured would improve upon the exit of CB Dunta Robinson to Atlanta, get ready to see Tebow light it up. Maybe.

Seattle Seahawks at Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 4:15, Fox The Bucs have an outside playoff shot. Root for NFC South pride and NFC West hilarity at the same time, as Seattle can also finish 7-9 and make the playoffs.

New York Giants at Green Bay Packers, 4:15, Fox Whether Aaron Rodgers or Matt Flynn is starting for the Pack, this should be a pretty good game. Both teams crumbled late last weekend, though only an egregious stretch of the word crumbling would place some Les Milesly clock management on par with one of the worst all-around fourth-quarter collapses ever.

Minnesota Vikings at Philadelphia Eagles, 8:20, NBC: Favre Vick Favre Vick, Favre Vick Favre Vick? Favre Vick Favre Vick Favre Vick Favre Vick Favre Vick Favre Vick? Favre Vick Favre Vick Favre Vick Favre Vick; Favre Vick Favre Vick, “Favre Vick Favre Vick Favre Vick Favre Vick Favre Vick Favre Vick,” Favre Vick Favre Vick, “Favre Vick Favre Vick.” Favre Vick Favre Vick (Favre Vick Favre Vick) Favre Vick Favre Vick Favre Vick Favre Vick.
