So it begins...

NFL: Cleveland Browns at Los Angeles Chargers Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2-2) at Atlanta Falcons (1-4)

1:00pm ET, FOX

Points awarded to anyone who had the Bucs with a better record than the team who took the Los Angeles Rams out of the playoffs last year.

(points awarded to nobody)

It’s fair to say this is a must-win for ATL. Drop this to get to 1-5, and it is fair to lock them out of the playoffs. Win this to get to 2-4...and they’re still behind Tampa at 2-3.

Pittsburgh Steelers (2-2) at Cincinnati Bengals (4-1)

1:00pm ET, CBS

AFC North battle in mid-October? Deal me in.

The Bengals currently hold the second-best record in the entire AFC behind the Kansas City Chiefs. And they hold home field today against a Pittsburgh team desperate to stay above .500 for all their off-field drama.

Los Angeles Chargers (3-2) at Cleveland Browns (2-2-1)

1:00pm ET, CBS

What in the hell is this?

An AFC contender in the Chargers who leave an LA that hardly feels like home to head to a Browns team that has much of the NFL world captivated?

A Chargers win, and they head to 4-2 in the thick of the burgeoning AFC playoff race. A Browns win, and...the Browns...the Cleveland Browns...yeah.

The 2018 NFL is a thing.

Seattle Seahawks (2-3) at* Oakland Raiders (1-4)

1:00pm ET, FOX
* - This game will be played at Wembley Stadium in London, England

What is this? Seahawks-Raiders? In the new NFL?!

In what used to be an NFL mainstay, this matchup is now on a quadrennial schedule just like the Rams-Denver Broncos matchup we’re preparing for.

This game is more about perhaps the loser. Yes, the Broncos could match the Seahawks at 2-4 with a win...which is kind of the point.

Chicago Bears (3-1) at Miami Dolphins (3-2)

1:00pm ET, FOX

These are two three-win teams.

Ok.

Uh...one of these teams becomes a four-win team.

Ok.

Uh...

Arizona Cardinals (1-4) at Minnesota Vikings (2-2-1)

1:00pm ET, FOX

Now this is a game that makes sense!

The Cardinals are struggling while the Vikings manage their way into the NFC playoff picture as QB Kirk

(Arizona wins)

WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON

Indianapolis Colts (1-4) at New York Jets (2-3)

1:00pm ET, CBS

Is it possible for both of these teams to lose?

Carolina Panthers (3-1) at Washington Redskins (2-2)

1:00pm ET, FOX

I have never been angrier/sadder/angrysadder that we have been robbed of RB Derrius Guice than this moment.

Buffalo Bills (2-3) at Houston Texans (2-3)

1:00pm ET, CBS

I am convinced the Bills and the Texans are the same team and nothing you can do or say can convince me otherwise.
