With the Bengals on a bye, which NFL teams are you going to be watching today?

The AFC North will have an inter-division showdown today in Baltimore with the Steelers and Ravens. Even though the Steelers and Ben Roethlisberger’s representatives leaked tons of inaccurate reports on Big Ben’s recovery timeline, it was just in an effort to confuse upcoming opponents. Roethlisberger will play against the Ravens and the Ravens never believed otherwise.

The number of reports “leaked”, aka intentionally shared, on his recovery timeline was simply ridiculous and unbelievable. Way to take a move from the Bill Belichick’s bag, Mike Tomlin.

Here are the early CBS games, led off with the Pittsburgh at Baltimore game, via

If you’d rather watch the Browns attempt to win their first game of the season, you can do so on FOX as Cleveland takes on the Cowboys at home.

After the early games, you’ll most likely be watching the Colts at Packers, as that’s the featured game on CBS late this afternoon.

Sunday ends with Denver at Oakland, a game which will hand over the temporary spot for first place in the AFC West. It should be a good game between two of the top contending teams in the AFC.

Monday Night Football ends Week 9 in the NFL with the Buffalo Bills heading west to face the Seattle Seahawks. The Seahawks haven’t been great so far this year, and the Bills are doing better than expected after a shaky start. Who do you think will win?

Which games are you most looking forward to this weekend while the Bengals are on a bye?
