Jets vs. Cowboys, Saturday Night Football: Game time, TV schedule, announcers, draft order

New, comments

The Jets and Cowboys square off on the first Saturday football game of the season. The Week 15 matchup has draft order and playoff implications. We've got all the TV schedule nuts and bolts to get you ready for this matchup.

Saturday NFL football is back in our lives! College football has moved into the bowl season, which means we get two weeks of Saturday professional football. This week's game features the Dallas Cowboys hosting the New York Jets. The game kicks off at 5:30 p.m. PT on NFL Network, with Phil Simms and Jim Nantz in the booth, and Tracy Wolfson on the sideline.

This game has some bearing for 49ers fans. The Cowboys are tied with the 49ers, Lions, and Ravens in draft order. The Cowboys have the strongest strength of schedule, and thus are at the back end of those four teams. That being said, as much as you might not want to root for the Cowboys, a Dallas victory is more valuable to the 49ers. I think this ends up a fairly close game. I took the Jets as 3.5-point favorites in the SuperContest, but I am not overly optimistic about it. Dallas will be without Rolando McClain which is pretty significant for their defense. The Jets are playing well right now, but I just have a hunch Dallas is going to give them a tough time tonight.

Here is everything you need to know about tonight's game.
