The Patriots' 2011 season won't kick off until tomorrow night against the Miami Dolphins, but for now, I think we can all sit back and enjoy some Sunday NFL football.  Here are the early games on the schedule:

Pittsburgh Steelers at Baltimore Ravens, 1:00 PM ET

Atlanta Falcons at Chicago Bears, 1:00 PM ET

Cincinnati Bengals at Cleveland Browns, 1:00 PM ET

Indianapolis Colts at Houston Texans, 1:00 PM ET

Tennessee Titans at Jacksonville Jaguars, 1:00 PM ET

Philadelphia Eagles at St. Louis Rams, 1:00 PM ET

Detroit Lions at Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 1:00 PM ET

Buffalo Bills at Kansas City Chiefs, 1:00 PM ET

Carolina Panthers at Arizona Cardinals, 4:15 PM ET

Minnesota Vikings at San Diego Chargers, 4:15 PM ET

Seattle Seahawks at San Francisco 49ers, 4:15 PM ET

Feel free to use this thread to discuss all 1:00 and 4:00 PM games.  We'll set up another thread for the Jets-Cowboys game later tonight.
