The NFL will hold games on Saturday for the first time this season as the year begins to wind down around the holidays and college football begins its bowl games.

There will be three games on Saturday for Week 15. One in the early afternoon, one in the evening and one at night. All the games carry some significance as four of the six teams are in the playoff hunt.

The race for the playoffs is as close as it’s going to be. The Philadelphia Eagles clinched a playoff berth last week and the San Francisco 49ers wrapped up the NFC West division title with a win over the Seattle Seahawks on Thursday night.

Here’s how Saturday looks like.

Vikings (10-3) vs. Colts (4-8-1) – 1 p.m. ET, NFL Network

The Vikings could win their first division title since 2017. Minnesota is coming home from a loss to the Detroit Lions. Taking down the Colts might be easier than taking on a team on a hot streak.

The Vikings can win with a win or a tie, or the Lions with a loss or a tie.

Minnesota has one of the most dynamic offenses in the league with the three-headed monster of Kirk Cousins, Dalvin Cook and Justin Jefferson, who is on a record-setting track himself. Defenses have to lean because you never know when a guy like Jonathan Taylor is going to break.

The Colts are 18th in points allowed and eighth in yards allowed. Their offense has lacked explosiveness since the first two weeks of the season. Indy is 31st in points and 25th in yards.

Browns (5-8) vs. Ravens (9-4) – 4:30 p.m. ET, NFL Network

With the Ravens’ quarterback situation in flux, this could be the perfect time for the Browns to really throw a wrench into their division rival’s playoff hopes.

Whether it’s Anthony Brown or Tyler Huntley, the Ravens offense hasn’t really turned out as well as projected. Lamar Jackson’s injury two weeks ago also hurt the flow of things. Baltimore has still been able to win games, but that’s a credit to a really great defense. Their defense is eighth in points allowed and 12th in yards.

In Cleveland, Deshaun Watson is back under center, but he looks like a quarterback who hasn’t played in 700 days. He was 26 of 42 with 276 passing yards with one touchdown and an interception in last week’s loss to the Bengals. In his third week, he should be big time in Cleveland.

Baltimore needs to win to stay in contention for the AFC North division title. The Ravens and Bengals have been neck and neck all season.

Bills (10-3) vs. Dolphins (8-5) – 8:15 p.m. ET, NFL Network

It will be football weather in Western New York where the Bills and Dolphins meet on Saturday night.

A massive snowstorm is expected in the area, which will hurt Miami’s chances. The dolphins have gone from the Bay Area to Southern California and now upstate New York on their travels over the past three weeks.

Miami’s offense was a little stuck against the Chargers. Tyreek Hill had an electric touchdown, but that was really the only thing that got Dolphins fans excited.

Buffalo, on the other hand, will be looking to avenge an early season loss. Josh Allen and the Bills have seemingly silenced the doubters over the past few weeks. Buffalo is riding a four-game winning streak and has a 132 point differential.
