The St. Louis Rams don't play until 4:15 p.m. Eastern time. Still, the NFL has plenty in store early for the hungry football fan, including headline games between Buffalo and the New York Jets as well as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers versus the New Orleans Saints. Those look like the most meaningful, least lopsided affairs on the early docket.

Grab a cold beverage, settle in and enjoy the matinee before the Rams game.
