NFL schedule Week 18: What games are on today? TV channels, times for Saturday doubleheader


The final week of the NFL regular season kicks off with a two-game playoff-impacting Saturday doubleheader.

That tradition began last year when the league moved Chiefs vs. Broncos and Cowboys vs. Eagles to the Saturday before the final day of the regular season.

While those games impacted the seeding more than anything else, this year’s roster includes one game that will decide a division and another that could determine who secures the first-round bye.

The Chiefs may be able to secure the AFC No. 1 and a first-round bye with a win over the Raiders. If the suspended Week 17 game between the Bills and Bengals is completely scrapped from the schedule, Kansas City would enter Week 18 and lead Buffalo by a half game.

The Raiders are out of playoff contention but put up a serious struggle in an overtime loss to the 49ers in Week 17 with Jarrett Stidham at center.

The Titans and Jaguars will play for the AFC South crown on Saturday night. The two teams could not go in different directions since Tennessee has lost six games in a row and Josh Dobbs is the quarterback.

The Jaguars rose to the top of the division behind Trevor Lawrence’s breakout season and can secure their first playoff spot since 2017 with a home win under the Lights.
