Week 16 kicked off with a matchup between 2-12 teams on Thursday night, but things will pick up in the next couple of days as the NFL takes over Saturday and Sunday for your viewing pleasure this week.

Saturday brings a pair of games, including a matchup between the Chargers and 49ers in the evening. Kevin Acee of U-T San Diego will join Mike Florio to discuss quarterback Philip Rivers’s physical condition after missing practice time this week with chest and back injuries and what impact those injuries will have on San Diego’s chances of continuing their playoff push.
