Sunday Night Football 2023 Season Games Schedules

The SNF roster this year starts with a spectacular splash, featuring two blockbuster clashes in a single exhilarating weekend. Yet, the excitement doesn’t stop there. While games post Week 4 remain under the purview of the NFL’s flex scheduling policy (indicating potential shifts in matchups), here are all the possible matches for this season games.

Kickoff: Detroit Lions @ Kansas City Chiefs

  • Date: September 7th, 2023
  • Time: 8:20 PM EST
  • Location: GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium, Kansas City

The NFL returns with a rare game as the Kansas City Chiefs take on the Detroit Lions at Arrowhead stadium. The reigning Super Bowl champions have only faced the Lions twice in the last ten years. Superstars on both offense and defence will take the stage and hopefully put on a show.

Week 1: Dallas Cowboys @ New York Giants

  • Date: September 10th, 2023
  • Time: 8:20 PM EST
  • Location: MetLife Stadium – East Rutherford, New Jersey

Week 1 starts off with a classic with a juicy NFL East matchup as the Dallas Cowboys take on the New York Giants. The Cowboys have only lost to the Giants once in the last 12 games and will look to extend that run to 13 and start their season off strong.

Week 2: Miami Dolphins @ New England Patriots

  • Date: September 17th, 2023
  • Time: 8:20 PM EST
  • Location: Gillette Stadium – Foxborough, Massachusetts

An AFC East battle is the feature game of week 2. In the last 10 years, the Dolphins and Patriots have a record of 10-10. Given the Dolphins offensive talent this year, you’d back them to beat a Patriots team that looks like they’re going to struggle this season.

Week 3: Pittsburgh Steelers @ Las Vegas Raiders

  • Date: September 24th, 2023
  • Time: 8:20 PM EST
  • Location: Allegiant Stadium, Paradise, Nevada

Week 3 is set to be a close encounter with both the Steelers and Raiders fighting for what could be a crucial win come the end of the season. Kenny Pickett looks like he’ll take a step up in his second season in the NFL. He’ll be put to the test against Jimmy Garoppolo’s Raiders and their stout defence. Tough to call a winner, but should be great to watch. 

Week 4: Kansas City Chiefs @ New York Jets

  • Date: October 1st, 2023
  • Time: 8:20 PM EST
  • Location: MetLife Stadium – East Rutherford, New Jersey

The Super Bowl Champions head to MetLife stadium to take on this season’s Hard Knocks celebrities in week 3. This will be a fantastic matchup. Two high flying offenses and two rock solid defences. The Jets and Chiefs have only played each other once in the past 5 years and it was a very different Jets team in 2020. This time round, we should hopefully be treated to an end-to-end game where it won’t be as easy for the Chiefs.

Week 5: Dallas Cowboys @ San Francisco 49ers

  • Date: October 8th, 2023
  • Time: 8:20 PM EST
  • Location: Levi’s Stadium – Santa Clara, California

A potential early NFC Championship game? Two of the strongest rosters in the NFL face off in week 5. Still fairly early on in the season, a win here could set the tone for either team and make an early statement to the rest of the league.

Week 6: New York Giants @ Buffalo Bills

  • Date: October 15th, 2023
  • Time: 8:20 PM EST
  • Location: Highmark Stadium, Orchard Park, New York

The Giants don’t have to travel far for this prime-time game. Including playoff games, the Bills and Giants are tied with a 7-7 record. Surprisingly, the Giants have won 3 out of the last 4 games between the two teams. The Bills will be the favourites for this game, but could we see an upset in week 6?

Week 7: Miami Dolphins @ Philadelphia Eagles

  • Date: October 22nd, 2023
  • Time: 8:20 PM EST
  • Location: Lincoln Financial Field, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

The Dolphins take a trip to Pennsylvania where they face the NFC Champions in week 7. Two outstanding offences will hopefully end in a shoot-out. The Dolphins are on a two-game win streak vs the Eagles and will look to extend it one further in this prime-time matchup.

Week 8: Chicago Bears @ Los Angeles Chargers

  • Date: October 29th, 2023
  • Time: 8:20 PM EST
  • Location: SoFi Stadium, Inglewood, California

Week 8 welcomes the Battle of the Justin’s as the two of the league’s best young quarterbacks take center stage. The first of three Sunday night games at SoFi Stadium.

Week 9: Buffalo Bills @ Cincinnati Bengals

  • Date: November 5th, 2023
  • Time: 8:20 PM EST
  • Location: Paycor Stadium, Cincinnati, Ohio

A replay of the AFC divisional round playoff game sees the Buffalo Bills visit the Cincinnati Bengals at Paycor Stadium. Two top 5 quarterbacks, world class receiver, elite defences. What more could you want on a Sunday night?

Week 10: New York Jets @ Las Vegas Raiders

  • Date: November 12th, 2023
  • Time: 8:20 PM EST
  • Location: Allegiant Stadium, Paradise, Nevada

Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams reunite when the Jets visit the Raiders in week 10.

The Jets haven’t had much luck on the road vs the Raiders, losing their last 3 most recent trips. No better time than prime time to turn their luck around.

Week 11: Minnesota Vikings @ Denver Broncos

  • Date: November 19th, 2023
  • Time: 8:20 PM EST
  • Location: Empower Field at Mile High, Denver, Colorado

The Vikings lead the 15-game series 8-7 vs the Broncos. Can Kirk Cousins handle prime time? Will Russ recover? One thing is for sure, the game will be a cracker and shouldn’t be missed!

Thanksgiving: San Francisco 49ers @ Seattle Seahawks

  • Date: November 23rd, 2023
  • Time: 8:20 PM EST
  • Location: Lumen Field, Seattle, Washington

Thanksgiving sees two favourites for the NFC West title meet in a battle of the juggernauts. The 49ers travel to Lumen Field to face the Seahawks in a star-studded affair. The Seahawks lead the series 30-20 but are on a 3-game losing streak including their loss to the 49ers in last year’s playoffs. Regardless of who wins, this interdivisional clash will be a spectacle.

Week 12: Baltimore Ravens @ Los Angeles Chargers

  • Date: November 26th, 2023
  • Time: 8:20 PM EST
  • Location: SoFi Stadium, Inglewood, California

The second game at SoFi Stadium welcomes the Baltimore Ravens to California. This is only the Ravens second visit to the Chargers. They won that game 22-10, they’ll be hoping for more of the same.

Week 13: Kansas City Chiefs @ Green Bay Packers

  • Date: December 3rd, 2023
  • Time: 8:20 PM EST
  • Location: Lambeau Field, Green Bay, Wisconsin

The reigning Super Bowl Champions travel to Lambeau Field for what could be a cold, bitter matchup vs the Green Bay Packers. The last time the two teams faced each other in 2021, it was pretty close. The Chiefs edged out a 13-7 win.

Week 14: Philadelphia Eagles @ Dallas Cowboys

  • Date: December 10th, 2023
  • Time: 8:20 PM EST
  • Location: AT&T Stadium, Arlington, Texas

Week 14 treats us to what could be the NFC East decider. All of the offensive talent will be on display as the two of the favourites for not just the NFC East, but the entire NFC will battle it out at the AT&T Stadium.

Week 15: Baltimore Ravens @ Jacksonville Jaguars

  • Date: December 17th, 2023
  • Time: 8:20 PM EST
  • Location: TIAA Bank Field, Jacksonville, Florida

The Ravens take a trip to Florida where they take on the Jacksonville Jaguars in what could be a crucial game for both teams in their playoff hopes. The Ravens haven’t had the best luck in Florida in recent times losing 3/4 of their last visits. Hopefully we’re treated to a great game with both Lamar Jackson and Trevor Lawrence trying to steer their side to victory.

Week 16: Cincinnati Bengals @ Pittsburgh Steelers

  • Date: December 23rd, 2023
  • Time: 4:30 PM EST
  • Location: Acrisure Stadium, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

The first NBC game sees The Pittsburgh Steelers host potential Superbowl contenders, the Cincinnati Bengals in an AFC North clash. Since the emergence of Joe Burrow in 2020, the Steelers dominance in this matchup has been halted with the Bengals winning 4 out of the last 6.

Week 16 (Peacock Exclusive): Buffalo Bills @ Los Angeles Chargers

  • Date: December 23rd, 2023
  • Time: 8:00 PM EST
  • Location: SoFi Stadium, Inglewood, California

Allen vs Herbert. Strong arm vs Strong arm. What a game this will be as the Los Angeles Chargers welcome the Buffalo Bills to SoFi Stadium for the final Sunday night game. The Bills have only beaten the Chargers once in recent times but all of that could change in what could be a crucial game as the end of the season heats up.

Week 17: Green Bay Packers @ Minnesota Vikings

  • Date: December 31st, 2023
  • Time: 8:20 PM EST
  • Location: U.S. Bank Stadium, Minneapolis, Minnesota

The penultimate NBC games hosts an NFC North Classic. Jordan Love takes the Packers on the road to Minnesota. Both teams will be hoping to enter 2024 with a win, a potential division title and a playoff spot secured. 

Week 18: TBD @ TBD

  • Date: January 7th, 2024
  • Time: 8:20 PM EST
