We take a look at the full Week 6 NFL schedule. We've got the full TV schedule, as well as a rooting guide.

Welcome back to Sunday football! Week 6 of the 2015 NFL season is back, following the New Orleans Saints big win over the Atlanta Falcons. Divisional road games are always tough, but seeing the Falcons struggle the way they did to hang with the Saints was certainly intriguing. Their loss leaves the NFL with five unbeaten teams.

Four teams are on bye this week, so we return today with 12 different games. We've got another viewing guide, and I'm just going with a general rooting interest portion. I split it up between draft and regular rooting interests last week. This week, the 49ers are now 1-4, and not in good shape. A win certainly keeps any faint playoff hopes alive, but they have a whole lot of work in front of them. Ro

Down below is everything you need to know about how to watch the various games. Click here to see which game is broadcasted in your region.

Sunday, Oct. 18

Washington at New York Jets

Start time: 10 AM PT
TV channel: FOX
Announcers: Kenny Albert, Daryl Johnston

ROOTING INTEREST: Fighting Snyders - If you're rooting for playoff positioning, you want the J-E-T-S, but i'm going with the draft positioning. Any Washington wins are a good thing, and I think the Jets are going to finish the season in the playoff picture.

Arizona Cardinals at Pittsburgh Steelers

Start time: 10 AM PT
TV channel: FOX
Announcers: Thom Brennaman, Troy Aikman

ROOTING INTEREST: Steelers - If I had to pick an NFC West team to root for this season aside from the 49ers, it would probably be Arizona. But let's get Pittsburgh some wins! I do think Arizona beats them handily in a Bruce Arians revenge game.

Kansas City Chiefs at Minnesota Vikings

Start time: 10 AM PT
TV channel: CBS
Announcers: Greg Gumbel, Trent Green

ROOTING INTEREST: Chiefs - The Kansas City season is not going to end well following the loss of Jamaal Charles, so we might as well root for them to get wins wherever they can.

Cincinnati Bengals at Buffalo Bills

Start time: 10 AM PT
TV channel: CBS
Announcers: Spero Dedes, Solomon Wilcots


Chicago Bears at Detroit Lions

Start time: 10 AM PT
TV channel: FOX
Announcers: Chris Myers, Ronde Barber

ROOTING INTEREST: Lions - Gotta see them get rid of that goose egg in the win column

Denver Broncos at Cleveland Browns

Start time: 10 AM PT
TV channel: CBS
Announcers: Ian Eagle, Dan Fouts


Houston Texans at Jacksonville Jaguars

Start time: 10 AM PT
TV channel: CBS
Announcers: Tom McCarthy, Adam Archuleta

ROOTING INTEREST: Tie? Both are 1-4. I think the Jaguars have a better chance at winning some games with Blake Bortles, but I'm sort of meh on this

Miami Dolphins at Tennessee Titans

Start time: 10 AM PT
TV channel: CBS
Announcers: Andrew Catalon, Steve Beuerlein, Steve Tasker

ROOTING INTEREST: See above - Both are 1-3. I think the Dolphins are a better bet to win more games this season, so let's root for Marcus Mariota and the Titans.

Carolina Panthers at Seattle Seahawks

Start time: 1:05 PM PT
TV channel: FOX
Announcers: Sam Rosen, John Lynch

ROOTING INTEREST: Panthers - I'm always down for rooting against Seattle

San Diego Chargers at Green Bay Packers

Start time: 1:25 PM PT
TV channel: CBS
Announcers: Jim Nantz, Phil Simms

ROOTING INTEREST: Chargers - Beat the Pack!

Baltimore Ravens at San Francisco 49ers

Start time: 1:25 PM PT
TV channel: CBS
Announcers: Kevin Harlan, Rich Gannon

ROOTING INTEREST: 49ers - I know plenty will root for losses, but I'm going to stick with the 49ers and let the chips fall where they may.

New England Patriots at Indianapolis Colts

Start time: 5:30 PM PT
TV channel: NBC
Announcers: Al Michaels, Cris Collinsworth, Michele Tafoya

ROOTING INTEREST: Colts - I am kind of intrigued by the Patriots revenge tour resulting in about a 50-point win, but gotta root for Frank Gore and company!
