NFL games on TV today for Week 2

What is the TV schedule for the 1 PM ET NFL games today?

Cincinnati Bengals at Chicago Bears

  • Channel: FOX
  • Start time: 1 PM ET
  • Live stream:
    • Sling
    • Hulu + Live TV
    • fuboTV
    • YouTube TV

Bengals QB Joe Burrow had an impressive return from his knee injury in Cincinnati’s overtime win against the Minnesota Vikings. RB Joe Mixon also shined in the season opener after having a 2020 campaign littered with injuries. The Bears’ offensive struggles continue, and QB Andy Dalton does not seem to spark the offense. I don’t expect rookie QB Justin Fields to see a meaningful amount of snaps this game, but the seat is only getting hotter under Dalton and head coach Matt Nagy.

Houston Texans at Cleveland Browns

  • Channel: CBS
  • Start time: 1 PM ET
  • Live stream:
    • Hulu + Live TV
    • fuboTV
    • YouTube TV
    • Paramount Plus

The Houston Texans surprised a fair amount of people with their Week 1 beat down of the Jacksonville Jaguars. QB Tyrod Taylor effectively moved the offense down the field, and RB Mark Ingram was solid in the starting role out of the backfield. They face a much tougher test in Week 2 with a Cleveland Browns team who gave the Chiefs a run for their money last week. Barring a Cleveland no-show, Houston won’t have nearly as easy a game script in Week 2.

Los Angeles Rams at Indianapolis Colts

  • Channel: FOX
  • Start time: 1 PM ET
  • Live stream:
    • Sling
    • Hulu + Live TV

    • YouTube TV

Did you know Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald has yet to record a sack against the Indianapolis Colts? He has not faced the Colts in his career and has eyes on crossing another team off his list. Seattle took down Colts QB Carson Wentz three times in Week 1, and now they face a ferocious Rams defensive front. Meanwhile, Los Angeles QB Matthew Stafford and the offense looked as advertised in Week 1. Stafford can easily repeat his 321-yard and 3-touchdown performance in this football game today.

Buffalo Bills at Miami Dolphins

  • Channel: FOX
  • Start time: 1 PM ET
  • Live stream:
    • Sling
    • Hulu + Live TV
    • fuboTV
    • YouTube TV

In the first divisional game of the week, the Buffalo Bills head to Hard Rock Stadium to take on the Miami Dolphins. Miami tries to avoid its sixth straight loss to their division rival. This game gives the winner an edge in the AFC East early in the season. Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa is still finding chemistry with his offense, and an Alabama-esque performance in this game would send quite a statement.

New England Patriots at New York Jets

  • Channel: CBS
  • Start time: 1 PM ET
  • Live stream:
    • Hulu + Live TV
    • fuboTV
    • YouTube TV
    • Paramount Plus

A big Sunday for the AFC East, these teams head into Week 2, both suffering losses. Patriots QB Mac Jones proved serviceable but couldn’t do enough against Miami’s stout defense. However, New England’s defense looked better from a season ago, holding Miami to 17 points. The Jets had a late comeback attempt stifled by Carolina. But the offense was shaky, with QB Zach Wilson fairing rougher than his rookie counterpart Jones. The Patriots will lean on RB Damien Harris and pressure Wilson.

San Francisco 49ers at Philadelphia Eagles

  • Channel: FOX
  • Start time: 1 PM ET
  • Live stream:
    • Sling
    • Hulu + Live TV
    • fuboTV
    • YouTube TV

Talk about a decisive and encouraging win for the Philadelphia Eagles. They marched into Mercedes-Benz Stadium and showed they were not the team who struggled a year ago. QB Jalen Hurts threw 3 touchdowns, including one to rookie WR DeVonta Smith to start their scoring. The 49ers should provide a much tougher defensive test. We’ll chalk up that fierce comeback attempt from Detroit in Week 1 as a fluke for the 49ers, but some things need to tighten up. This game should prove to be a tremendous offensive showdown.

Las Vegas Raiders at Pittsburgh Steelers

  • Channel: CBS
  • Start time: 1 PM ET
  • Live stream:
    • Hulu + Live TV
    • fuboTV
    • YouTube TV
    • Paramount Plus

Week 1 was a tale of two halves for Pittsburgh. The offense was nowhere to be found in the first half against the Buffalo Bills but turned it on in the second half, scoring 23 points and holding Buffalo’s offense to just 6. The Raiders got their home-opening win, but with Josh Jacobs out in Week 2, they have a tough hill to climb against a stingy Steelers defense.

New Orleans Saints at Carolina Panthers

  • Channel: CBS
  • Start time: 1 PM ET
  • Live stream:
    • Hulu + Live TV
    • fuboTV
    • YouTube TV
    • Paramount Plus

Hello Jameis Winston and the New Orleans Saints! New Orleans completely dismantled the Green Bay Packers in Week 1, and Winston showed his potential in Sean Payton’s offense. While the offense was a surprise, the defense picked up where they left off in 2020, being a top-five unit in the NFL.

Denver Broncos at Jacksonville Jaguars

  • Channel: CBS
  • Start time: 1 PM ET
  • Live stream:
    • Hulu + Live TV
    • fuboTV
    • YouTube TV
    • Paramount Plus

Bad news for the Jaguars — if you struggled with the Texans last week, the Broncos will be a nightmare. Jacksonville failed to find offensive momentum against what many thought to be a bad Houston team. On the other hand, Denver showed just how good their defense is when healthy. Rookie QB Trevor Lawrence will have his hands full with the Broncos’ pass rush.

Late-afternoon NFL TV schedule

Who is in the second wave of NFL games today on the TV schedule?

Minnesota Vikings at Arizona Cardinals

  • Channel: FOX
  • Start time: 4:05 PM ET
  • Live stream:
    • Hulu + Live TV
    • fuboTV
    • YouTube TV
    • Paramount Plus

The Cardinals completely undressed the Tennessee Titans in Week 1, and a repeat performance looks to follow in Week 2. The Minnesota Vikings head to Arizona to take on the Cardinals in this NFL game today. QB Kyler Murray was sharp and game-breaking with his legs. DeAndre Hopkins showed why he has a claim as the best WR in the league. Edge rusher Chandler Jones registered 5 sacks. The Cardinals looked to be in midseason form. Minnesota will need to disrupt the pocket and get Murray off-balance to grab this victory.

Atlanta Falcons at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

  • Channel: FOX
  • Start time: 4:05 PM ET
  • Live stream:
    • Hulu + Live TV
    • fuboTV
    • YouTube TV
    • Paramount Plus

The “Bird Bowl” from Week 1 saw one team soaring high and another flying low. Below-average football continues to plague the Atlanta Falcons. A Week 2 contest against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers looks to add to their misery. Atlanta could only muster 6 points from its offense in Week 1, and the defense looked like Swiss cheese. If Jalen Hurts could pick apart that secondary, Tom Brady should have no issues in Week 2.

Dallas Cowboys at Los Angeles Chargers

  • Channel: CBS
  • Start time: 4:25 PM ET
  • Live stream:
    • Sling
    • Hulu + Live TV
    • fuboTV
    • YouTube TV

Chargers QB Justin Herbert continues his impressive play under center. A Week 1 victory was good for the Chargers, who have struggled to close out tight games over the past few seasons. Dallas’ comeback bid against the Buccaneers in the regular-season opener fell short but showed positive signs. However, critical losses of OT La’el Collins, DE Randy Gregory, and DE DeMarcus Lawrence turn the tide in favor of a Week 2 Chargers win.

Tennessee Titans at Seattle Seahawks

  • Channel: CBS
  • Start time: 4:25 PM ET
  • Live stream:
    • Sling
    • Hulu + Live TV
    • fuboTV
    • YouTube TV

No one had a more disappointing 2021 regular-season debut than the Tennesee Titans. The defense gave up 38 points, the offense fumbled 3 times, and RB Derrick Henry was held to just 58 yards — the whole outing was disastrous. That is not great when you head to Lumen Field in Week 2. Titans HC Mike Vrabel has to go back to the drawing board with a matchup against a presumed NFC playoff team. Another decisive loss for Tennessee should start setting off alarms in Nashville.

Sunday Night Football

In a battle of two AFC powerhouses, the Kansas City Chiefs face the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday Night Football.

Patrick Mahomes vs. Lamar Jackson. Tyreek Hill vs. Marlon Humphrey. Orlando Brown vs. his old team — who will be without Ronnie Stanley, no less. There is no shortage of storylines in this NFL game today. While the Ravens dealt with a devasting overtime loss to the Raiders last week, the Chiefs came back and beat an excellent Browns team. Who will get the win in what could be a future AFC playoff bout?
