What is the Texans vs. Channel Buccaneers today? Schedule, time for the NFL game on Saturday

The NFL Week 16 program brings us what has become the end of December tradition: NFL football on Saturday. There are three games in the NFL schedule this Saturday, starting with the Texans. Buccaneers at 1 p.m. ET, all three games are scheduled to be broadcast nationally on the NFL Network.

All three of the NFL games on Saturday have a ripple effect on the playoffs. Houston needs a win in the Tampa Bay on Saturday to secure the AFC South for the second season and for the fourth time in the last five years. The Texans will join the Patriots and Chiefs as the only NFL teams with four or more division titles from 2015.

A victory would do the trick, but a loss to the Titans on Sunday will seal the deal for the Texans no matter what happens on Saturday. In addition, if both teams had to tie their opponents in Week 16, Houston would give the AFC South over Tennessee.

In both of our selections against the spread and simple forecasts for Week 16, Sporting News highlights a Texans victory over the Buccaneers on Saturday. Here are the explanations.

Choose against spread: The Texans have Deshaun Watson with his basic weapons healthy. The Buccaneers have a red-hot Jameis Winston despite being down Mike Evans and Chris Godwin. Neither pass defense is good, so Watson and Winston will turn this into a shoot-out matinee. Houston is far more at stake in the AFC South title line, with Tampa playing second place outside the NFC South. The Bucs have to cool down a bit, and Watson is late for a monster game. He’ll pull one of his dazzling comebacks to save the Texans (again). Option: The Texans win 34-31 and cover the spread.

Direct prediction: With a red hot Jameis Winston, the Buccaneers have scored 35 or more points three times during their four-game winning streak. What a good defense their defense is at 28.4 points per game. The latest stat is good news for the Texans as they try to win the AFC South and retain their place in the play-offs. Also working against Tampa Bay is the fact that injuries accumulate around Winston, which means he may be more willing to force more shots. Even against Houston’s defense, the Bucs are misbehaving when Winston tries to force too many shots. Option: Texans 27, Buccaneers 21.
