Big Game Bound Week 16: Titans vs. Packers, Seahawks vs. Rams, the state of the Bears

The Big Game

PROGRAM NOTE: The Week 16 and Week 17 episodes of “Big Game Bound” will not be streamed. The episodes, hosted by FOX 2 in St. Louis, will be available on demand at 1 p.m. ET on Dec. 24 and Dec. 31. Streaming will resume in January 2021.


(NEXSTAR) — On this week’s episode of “Big Game Bound,” we preview a rare late-season matchup involving division leaders with 10+ wins under their belts: the Tennessee Titans travel to Green Bay to take on the Packers Sunday night. KTVI FOX2 Sports Director Martin Kilcoyne discusses the Big Game with Cory Curtis in Nashville. Curtis says the Titans are more than just their monster running back Derrick Henry, and shouldn’t have trouble playing in Wisconsin in late December.

Next, Martin and AJ McCord preview the game that could decide the NFC West as the Los Angeles Rams head for Seattle to try and derail Russell Wilson’s bid for a division title. McCord says Wilson will have a healthy offensive line and running backs at the ready as the Seahawks try and defend the one-man wrecking crew that is Aaron Donald.  

We’ll also look at the state of one of the NFL’s signature franchises as the Chicago Bears head for Florida to take on the Jacksonville Jaguars. The game has implications for the draft instead of the playoff picture. Jarrett Payton looks at what’s at stake the last two weeks of the season for embattled Head Coach Matt Nagy and QB Mitchell Trubisky.

“Big Game Bound,” hosted by WOOD TV8 Sports Director Jack Doles, streams every Thursday at 1 p.m. ET. If you can’t watch the stream live, you can watch episodes on demand by clicking here.

St. Louis Sports

FOX2 Sports is your home for the latest information about the St. Louis Cardinals, the St. Louis Blues, Saint Louis University, the University of Missouri, and the University of Illinois.

Are the Cardinals making a big trade? Are the Blues ready for another Stanley Cup run? Is someone going to sign a major free-agent deal? Are the Tigers, Billikens and Illini bringing in the next big recruiting class? We cover all the big games that matter.

The MLS is coming to St. Louis in 2023 and we’ll be here for the start of STL SC too. The XFL thrived in its reboot season playing at the Dome at America’s Center, and if the BattleHawks return in 2022, we’ll be there to tackle it.

St. Louis is home to some of the best high school student-athletes who go on to succeed in the pros and beyond. Before Larry Hughes, Bradley Beal and Jayson Tatum made a name for themselves as Division I NCAA basketball stars at SLU, Florida, and Duke, they played at CBC and Chaminade. Before Ezekiel Elliott, Sheldon Richardson and Jeremy Maclin became Ohio State Buckeyes and Missouri Tigers and NFL first-round draft picks, they went to John Burroughs, Gateway Tech and Kirkwood. All of them were featured in the FOX2 Prep Zone before they went off to the SEC, Big 12, Big Ten and beyond.

Members of our team, including Sports Director Martin Kilcoyne, Charlie Marlow, and Rich Gould have covered every significant moment in St. Louis sports since 1987, from the football Cardinals’ departure for Arizona to the arrival of the St. Louis Rams; from the Mark McGwire home run chase to the Cardinals’ World Series titles, to the St. Louis Rams and the Greatest Show on Turf era’s Super Bowl crown; from Brett Hull to Vladimir Tarasenko, we’ve covered the Blues all the way to the team’s first Stanley Cup.

Think of all the great characters in St. Louis area sports history. Jack Buck, Mike Shannon, Charlie Spoonhour, Norm Stewart, Whitey Herzog, Tony LaRussa, Stan Musial, Dick Vermiel, Lou Brock, Albert Pujols, Kurt Warner, Ozzie Smith, Hull, Pat Maroon, Keith Tkachuk, Yadier Molina, Adam Wainwright, David Freese. All of them talk to us.
