What time is the NFL game tonight? TV schedule, channel for Chiefs vs. Chargers in Week 15



The penultimate “Thursday Night Football” game of the season will take place in Week 15, and it’s set to be a good one. The Chargers and Chiefs will square off in a battle that will decide just how much resistance the Chiefs face as they go for their sixth consecutive AFC West division title.

There’s still time for the Chargers to catch their rivals. The Chiefs (9-4) have just a one-game lead over Los Angeles (8-5) for the top spot in the division. However, Kansas City will certainly be motivated to win this one, as the Chargers beat them 30-24 at Arrowhead Stadium earlier in the season.

Can Justin Herbert and the Chargers repeat their magical win over the Chiefs from Week 3? Or will Patrick Mahomes and the red-hot Chiefs defense continue to build on their six-game winning streak?

We’ll find out soon enough, as the matchup between these two is set to kick off at 8:20 p.m. ET at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, Calif.

Below is everything to know about the TV schedule for the NFL Week 15ย opener between the Chiefs and Chargers, plus a look at the rest of the NFL schedule for this week.

NFL schedule Week 15

The Chargers vs. Chiefs game will be the first of the NFL’s 16 games in Week 14. The two teams are jockeying for position atop the crowded AFC West, but the Chiefs currently hold the advantage. If they’re able to win, they will set themselves up to win the division title for the sixth consecutive year under Andy Reid.

The two other prime-time games in Week 15 will also be divisional matchups, though they’re a bit less important. The Buccaneers have a commanding lead over the Saints in the NFC South, and they will have a chance to secure a division title with a “Sunday Night Football” win. Tom Brady still hasn’t beaten the Saints in three regular-season tries with the Bucs, so that adds importance to this matchup.

“Monday Night Football” will feature the Bears and the Vikings. The Vikings are fighting for a playoff spot and both coaches โ€” Minnesota’s Mike Zimmer and Chicago’s Matt Nagy โ€” are fighting for their jobs as the season comes to a close. So, from that standpoint, this game could prove critical.

One of the more amusing matchups on the docket is the Cardinals traveling to Detroit to take on the Lions. The Cardinals are arguably the best team in the league while the Lions may be the worst. That said, Dan Campbell’s bunch has played hard when healthy, so perhaps the Lions can keep this close early to make it interesting.

Below is the full schedule for Week 15 of the 2021 NFL season.
