Week 16 action continues with a loaded Sunday slate.

Between A Good Football Show, daily columns, premium content, DFS/betting tools, ongoing Twitch integration, up-to-the-minute coverage on Sunday morning and our irreplaceable Player News page, we here at NBC Sports EDGE have spent the past few months concocting an in-season content schedule that provides actionable advice for all season-long and daily fantasy players, as well as sports bettors and football fans alike.

Our goal is to maintain the quality of information that NBC Sports EDGE readers and listeners have become accustomed to, and we believe the following schedule does just that.
