PFT on NBC Sports Network: Matt Forte, Week 16 preview


It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, but there’s still a whole weekend of football to play before St. Nick makes his way down any chimneys.

Pro Football Talk on NBC Sports Network will bring you everything you need to get ready for Week 16, including an interview with Bears running back Matt Forte ahead of this week’s crucial matchup with the Cardinals. The Bears have lost five of their last six games, leaving them out of control of their own playoff destiny and likely needing to win out to have a shot at the tournament. Forte will tell Erik Kuselias how he’s feeling heading into this week’s game and what he thinks the Bears need to do to put themselves back on track.

Hines Ward will also be on hand to talk about the 40th anniversary of the Immaculate Reception and a few of this week’s biggest matchups. Mike Florio and Peter King will also be breaking down the games as well as providing one last look at the playoff picture before the Lions and Falcons kick off Week 16 on Saturday night. Throw in some picks and a look at the injury report, and you’ve got everything you need in an hourlong package.

It all gets underway at 5 p.m. ET on NBC Sports Network.
