Week 16 kicks off with the Los Angeles Rams hosting the New Orleans Saints for Thursday Night Football on Amazon Prime. Every game is big in the NFL. This game is huge. Both teams find themselves at 7-7, and fighting for a spot in the playoffs. Each team has a lot of potential, but neither team has turned that potential into consistency. The .500 records are very fitting, but both teams have the opportunity over the next three games, starting tonight, to create a new narrative.

Here’s our how to watch guide and some prop bets for your consideration.

The Rams are playing winning football since coming off of their bye week. That is reflected by their 4-1 record. Matthew Stafford has been playing great football. Cooper Kupp may not be thrilled about playing on turf twice in the same week, but he’s been balling too. Kupp, with Puka Nacua and Kyren Williams seemingly has given Sean McVay plenty of plays to call.

The Saints have Derek Carr to go along with the talented receiver, Chris Olave. Terry McLaurin just had a big game against Rams for the Washington Commanders, and it’s not hard to see Olave getting open for some deep shots. The Saints also boast Alvin Kamara at running back. The offense has talent. The defense, with players like Cameron Jordan, has talent too. This should be a tough matchup for LA, and the winner of this game may end up going to the playoffs.

Tune in to see which team and their fans have the Merrier Christmas.
