What time is the NFL game tonight? TV schedule, channel for 49ers vs. Seahawks in Week 15

The Seahawks and 49ers square off on “Thursday Night Football” in a game it’s unlikely anyone thought would hold the weight it does in December.

With the Seahawks just two games back of the 49ers in the NFC West and San Francisco on its third-string quarterback, the division is still somehow in reach for Geno Smith and Seattle. With that being said, the 49ers just watched an outstanding debut from Mr. Irrelevant Brock Purdy, in which the 49ers ran away from the Buccaneers 35-7 in a laugher.

The game showed just how deep the 49ers roster is, as San Francisco still looks like every bit the Super Bowl contender it was thought to be in the preseason despite a slow start to the year. The 49ers have won six straight games, and they’ll lay that on the table Thursday against the Seahawks.

The Seahawks are coming off a disappointing loss to the Panthers, and they’ll look to bounce back. The 49ers ran away in their first meeting, a 27-7 victory back in September. Both teams look very different now, but the Seahawks are trying to right the ship after dropping three of their last four.

NFL schedule Week 15

Bye weeks are over, so it’s going to be a full slate in the NFL for the next four weeks. Furthermore, Saturday features a tripleheader, so there’s going to be an extra day of NFL action on the schedule.

There will be 16 games over the course of the weekend, starting with 49ers and Seahawks on Thursday.

On Saturday, the Colts and Vikings kick off the day, followed by Ravens vs. Browns in a divisional showdown with huge implications in the AFC North, as the Ravens continue to try to hang on. Finally, Dolphins vs. Bills rounds out the day in a big AFC matchup that the Dolphins need to try to get off their two-game skid.

On Sunday, the Lions and Jets surprisingly highlight the early games as they try to muscle into their respective conferences’ playoff pictures. In the late window, the Bengals and Buccaneers are the headliners as Joe Burrow and Cincinnati try to keep pace with the Ravens in the North and the Bucs cling onto the NFC South lead for dear life. Finally, the Commanders and Giants square off after tying two weeks ago in another opportunity to get a leg up in the NFC wild card race.

“Monday Night Football” is an uninspiring matchup, but the Packers are also looking to fight in the NFC wild card despite being overshadowed by the Lions. The Rams are playing spoiler at this point, a role they played well last week against the Raiders in Baker Mayfield’s comeback coming out party in L.A.
