With Thursday Night Football out of the way, we’re on to a busy Sunday of football, including a game in London!
Luckily, the London game has a normal 1:00 p.m. ET start time, not the 9:00 a.m. start times games in the U.K. often require. The Rams are “hosting” the Cardinals this week at Twickenham Stadium, the first game this year at that location. Since the Cincinnati Bengals don’t play until 4:25 p.m. ET, you’ll likely want to sort through the rest of the games to figure out the best available for you to watch.
In Cincinnati it will be the Baltimore Ravens vs Minnesota Vikings game on CBS and the New Orleans Saints vs Green Bay Packers game on FOX in the early slot. With Aaron Rodgers sidelined and potentially done for the year, the FOX game won’t be as exciting as it would have been with him playing.
Then, the Bengals vs Pittsburgh Steelers game will be on TV for much of the eastern half of the country, save for most of New York, Pennsylvania and other north eastern cities. The AFC West matchup between the Denver Broncos and Los Angeles Chargers is the game on TV for most of the Midwest and west coast, save for the Seattle Seahawks and New York Giants’ markets.
Sunday Night Football (NBC at 8:30 p.m. ET) is a Super Bowl rematch between the Atlanta Falcons (3-2) and New England Patriots (4-2), which should be a good game, despite neither team looking dominant through six weeks.
The week finishes off with Washington at the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday Night Football (ESPN at 8:30 p.m. ET). Washington can't take first place in the NFC East with a win, but they'd get within a game of the Eagles, who currently rank at the top of the division.
Which games are you most excited for this week, other than Bengals vs Steelers, that is!
