Philadelphia Eagles (3-4) at Jacksonville Jaguars (3-4)

9:30am ET, NFL

One of these teams is starting the 2018 season 3-5...

New York Jets (3-4) at Chicago Bears (3-3)

1:00pm ET, CBS

Or put another way, the Eagles, Jags, Jets and Bears are all in the same boat at the midpoint of the season. That’s definitely what everyone was predicting two months ago!

Tampa Bay Buccaneers (3-3) at Cincinnati Bengals (4-3)

1:00pm ET, FOX

Ok, fine. Theme.

We’re three games in, and we’re looking at five teams with three wins and one with four...and the one with four is Cincy.

This is the 2018 NFL.

Seattle Seahawks (3-3) at Detroit Lions (3-3)

1:00pm ET, FOX

IT WON’T END.

Denver Broncos (3-4) at Kansas City Chiefs (6-1)

1:00pm ET, CBS

Thank you for rescuing us, KC!

(thinks about the media and fan excitement over Patrick Mahomes...)

Go Denver!

Washington Record-Havers (4-2) at New York Giants (1-6)

1:00pm ET, FOX

The London special notwithstanding, this might be the most interesting game of the early run. What in the world are the Giants this year? What are they becoming? Sure, QB Eli Manning is at the tail end of his career. But this was an 11-win team two years ago that allowed the second-least points in the NFL. What have they become?

Cleveland Browns (2-4-1) at Pittsburgh Steelers (3-2-1)

1:00pm ET, CBS

...

...

This is going to overtime, right?

Baltimore Ravens (4-3) at Carolina Panthers (4-2)

1:00pm ET, CBS

Baltimore might have the best defense in football at this point. Take that into Charlotte, and you’ve got what might be the best game herein.
