Week 15 of the 2023 NFL season takes center stage with three Saturday games.

At 1:00 pm EST we have the 7-6 Cincinnati Bengals hosting the 7-6 Minnesota Vikings in a game both teams need badly for their playoff hopes. This will be a matchup of backup quarterbacks, as Jake Browning tries to continue his magical run for the Bengals while Nick Mullens gets a shot in relief of Joshua Dobbs, who had been subbing in for Kirk Cousins with the Vikings.

At 4:30 pm EST the 7-6 Indianapolis Colts host the 7-6 Pittsburgh Steelers in another game both teams need for their playoff hopes. This is another matchup of backup quarterbacks as Mitchell Trubisky will be under center for the Steelers in place of an injured Kenny Pickett, and Gardner Minshew continues a long run for the Colts in place of an injured Anthony Richardson.

Finally, at 8:15 pm EST, the 9-4 Detroit Lions host the 7-6 Denver Broncos. The Broncos need this game a lot more than the Lions. For a refreshing change, both teams will have their starting quarterbacks available, as Russell Wilson tries to engineer an upset victory for the Broncos over Jared Goff and the Lions.

Every one of these Saturday games has major playoff implications. Good stuff in a dreary season for the Jets.
