NFL

Broncos@Texans 8 p.m. [NFL Network]

Here we go again. If you have the NFL Network or satellite, you'll get this one. If you're a standard cable subscriber, probably not. Both teams are 6-7 and still in the scramble for an AFC playoff spot, although either would still need some help. So this is sort of an elimination match. It also features a coaching matchup between mentor Mike Shanahan and his former assistant, Gary Kubiak.

NBA

Wizards@Heat 8 p.m. [TNT]

The Gilbert Arena-less Wizards are acquitting themselves well, hanging in there at better than .500. The Heat, however, has been a mere shadow of its championship self. Despite a modest two-game winning streak, Miami is 6-15. Averaging just 10 shots a game, Shaquille O'Neal feels he hasn't been seeing the ball enough and has, you know, mentioned it to the fellas. If you can stay up long enough, the second game of a TNT doubleheader has the Spurs and Lakers.
