Waiting for the Patriots ... Early Game Thread

New, comments

Nothing to do while waiting for the Pats? Here's some other games that are playing.

David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports

Early Games:

CBS 1PM EST:

Vikings @ Bears (the worst of the NFC North vie for 3rd and 4th place in their division)

Texans @ Browns (Browns lead the AFC North, and Houston is behind the pack looking for an unlikely playoff spot) BTW, this is the Back-up Bowl, as Brady's previous backups: Hoyer and Mallet are starting in this game.

Broncos @ Rams (Week two of weak teams for the Broncos to pad stats on)

Bengals @ Saints (Saints lead their division with a losing record, and the Bengals are 2nd in possibly the toughest division right now)

FOX 1PM EST:

Seahawks @ Chiefs (records are tied and both looking for playoff spots) My vote for best early game.

49ers @ Giants (both unlikely to be in the playoffs, but there is the possibility of sad Manning-face)

Buccaneers @ Redskins (both are vying for highest draft picks next year)

Falcons @ Panthers (fighting for 2nd and 3rd in their division, but no playoffs)

Later Games:

CBS 4:05PM EST:

Raiders @ Chargers (Raiders holding tight to their number 1 draft pick, although the Chargers may play spoiler to that)

FOX 4:25PM EST:

Eagles @ Packers (two good teams that should still be playing in January)

Lions @ Cardinals (two more good teams that are leading their divisions) My vote for best late game.
