Panthers vs. Texans (Thursday September 23), 7:20 P.M., NFL Network
Terrace Marshall and a good but maybe not great Carolina Panthers travel to Houston to take on a Texans team that will probably be picking at or near the top of April’s draft.
Colts vs. Titans, 12:00 P.M., CBS
Kristian Fulton has taken a step in his second year with the Titans much to the relief of the Tennessee coaching staff.
Falcons vs. Giants, 12:00 P.M., FOX
Russell Gage finally got on the board for Atlanta, catching five passes in the Falcons loss to Tampa Bay last week. Debo Jones, meanwhile, will likely feast on a poor Giants offensive line and stuff Saquon Barkley.
Chargers vs. Chiefs 12:00 P.M., CBS
Hopefully Clyde Edwards-Helaire can bounce back from his game-ending fumble. Also could everyone stop saying the Chiefs shouldn’t have taken Clyde in round one, it’s hurting my feelings.
Bengals vs. Steelers 12:00 P.M., CBS
Two games, two touchdowns for Ja’Marr Chase.
Bears vs. Browns 12:00 P.M., FOX
LSU: North is suddenly banged up. Odell’s still out, Jacob Phillips is on IR, Jarvis Landry has an MCL sprain, and we’re still waiting on Greedy Williams to make some kind of impact for the Browns. Grant Delpit did, picking up two sacks in his professional debut last week.
Ravens vs. Lions 12:00 P.M., CBS
The Lions are 0-2 but a respectable 0-2 and I chalk most of that up to the influence Michael Brockers has had in the Detroit locker room.
Saints vs. Patriots 12:00 P.M., FOX
Cardinals vs. Jaguars 12:00 P.M., FOX
Urban Meyer apparently told Denver head coach Vic Fangio after the game that being in the NFL is like preparing for Alabama every single week. Things are going great in Jacksonville!
Washington Football Team vs. Bills 12:00 P.M., FOX
Tre’ White, Reid Ferguson and the rest of the Bills got right last week in Miami with a 35-0 thumping over the Dolphins. White already has 11 tackles which feels like a lot for a corner.
Jets vs. Broncos, 3:05 P.M., CBS
Zach Wilson threw four interceptions last week so Kary Vincent had better be ready.
Dolphins vs. Raiders, 3:25 P.M., CBS
While I don’t know if the Raiders are really good or not, I do know that Foster Moreau caught a touchdown in Vegas’s win over Pittsburgh last week.
Seahawks vs. Vikings, 3:25 P.M., FOX
The NFLSU game of the week: Adams, Pocic, Lewis, Jefferson, Hunter, Peterson all battle it out in Minnesota.
Buccaneers vs. Rams, 3:25 P.M., FOX
A potential early NFC Championship preview has Devin White, Leonard Fournette, and Kevin Minter going up against Andrew Whitworth.
Packers vs. 49ers, 7:20 P.M., NBC
A really intriguing NFL game but not quite an appealing game from the “watch our former guys play” perspective.
Eagles vs. Cowboys (Monday September 27), 7:20 P.M., ESPN
Maybe we’ll see Jabril Cox?
