Thursday Night Football is behind us after a boring game between the Chicago Bears and the Green Bay Packers. Aaron Rodgers and the Packers seem to have taken a step back, but were still able to secure a win after Brian Hoyer went down with a broken arm in the first half. Hoyer will now be out for quite some time.
Hopefully we'll see some better games this weekend, starting with the 9:30 a.m. Giants vs Rams game in London. In one week, we’ll be watching the Bengals vs Redskins in London, early on Sunday morning! Will you be watching the nationally televised London game this week?
But, the game we’re all waiting for is the Bengals vs Browns AFC North showdown and Battle of Ohio. Will the game be on your TV? Well, if you live outside of the Ohio/Kentucky/West Virginia area, no. Here are the TV maps for this week in the NFL, via 506sports.com.
Here are the FOX games, which include San Diego vs Atlanta for those in the Cincinnati area in the late afternoon.
Sunday Night Football is an NFC West showdown between the Cardinals and Seahawks. The Cardinals beat the Jets with ease last week, but this season has been no cake walk for them. Arizona is 3-3 and hosts the 4-1 Seahawks, who haven’t looked quite as dominant this year as they have over the past five. Though, they didn’t look great to start last year either and still made it to the divisional round of the playoffs.
The week ends in Denver with the Houston Texans and quarterback Brock Osweiler coming to town. It will be a homecoming for Osweiler who left the Broncos to join the Texans in free agency this offseason. I’d think the Broncos’ defense will be very ready to take down Osweiler who has had a pretty bad season to date and is somehow making Deandre Hopkins look inadequate.
Which games are you most looking forward to this weekend?
