    NFL games today TV schedule | Week 9

    Teams with a bye in Week 9 include: Detroit Lions, Seattle Seahawks, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and Washington Football Team.

    Kicking things off with an AFC North showdown, the Cleveland Browns take on the Cincinnati Bengals. Both teams took rough losses in Week 8 — Cincinnati’s stinging a bit worse coming at the hands of the Jets.

    However, a boisterous week in Cleveland resulted in the release of WR Odell Beckham Jr. and some changes for the Browns’ offense in the near future. Ending this tumultuous back and forth might bring Cleveland’s offense together a bit. Still, it won’t be enough against a hungry Bengals’ offense eager to prove they are the better AFC North team.

    Denver Broncos (4-4) at Dallas Cowboys (6-1)

    • Channel: FOX

    This NFL game today between the Denver Broncos and Dallas Cowboys kicks off at 1 PM. After dropping four straight games, the Broncos snapped their losing streak against the Washington Football Team in Week 8. But it wasn’t pretty.

    Meanwhile, backup QB Cooper Rush and the Cowboys found a way to win, keeping things rolling for Dallas. Dak Prescott is back, and the defense is feasting. Dallas moves to 7-1, creating more distance between themselves and second place in the NFC East.

    Houston Texans(1-7) at Miami Dolphins (1-7)

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

    This NFL game today is oozing with storylines, both good and bad given how connected these two franchises have been all season. The NFL trade deadline has come and gone with no announcement of the Houston Texans trading QB Deshaun Watson to the Miami Dolphins. These talks will almost certainly pick back up in the offseason, but that’s a conversation for another time.

    Neither of these teams has won since Week 1. Houston gets a slight bump in Week 9 after activating QB Tyrod Taylor from injured reserve. Taylor is 5-2 as a starter against the Dolphins.

    Atlanta Falcons (3-4) at New Orleans Saints (5-2)

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

    This NFL game today between the Atlanta Falcons and New Orleans Saints kicks off at 1 PM. New Orleans trots out a new starting QB after Jameis Winston tore his ACL in Week 8. Trevor Siemian gets the nod under center, and he filled in admirably last week, helping the Saints beat the Buccaneers. Atlanta’s offense will have its hands full all day with a defensive front that’s been producing nightmares for opposing QBs this season.

    Las Vegas Raiders (4-4) at New York Giants (5-3)

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

    The Las Vegas Raiders head to MetLife Stadium to take on the New York Giants in this NFL game today. The Raiders have started a new winning streak following Jon Gruden’s resignation. They now take on a Giants team struggling to maintain a consistent lineup on the field.

    New York will still be without RB Saquon Barkley and WR Sterling Shepard heading into Week 9. In the only two games the Giants have won this season, their defense came up big. Yet, it seems hard to believe they will be able to slow down this high-octane Raiders offense.

    New England Patriots (4-4) at Carolina Panthers (4-4)

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

    This NFL game today between the New England Patriots and the Carolina Panthers kicks off at 1 PM. After a hot start to the season, QB Sam Darnold and the Panthers have crashed back to reality.

    Meanwhile, Bill Belichick and the Patriots have done just about the opposite. New England’s defense looks far more familiar than it did in 2020 and faces off against a Panthers offense that has been very underwhelming these past few weeks. Carolina does see the return of RB Christian McCaffrey, but this will be his first snaps in over a month.

    Buffalo Bills (5-2) at Jacksonville Jaguars (1-6)

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

    The Buffalo Bills head to Duval to take on the Jacksonville Jaguars in this NFL game today. Jacksonville can’t seem to get things together at the same time. When the defense is shutting the opponent down, the offense struggles to move the ball. When the offense gets rolling, the defense gets steamrolled by the opposing offense.

    That’s not fantastic news facing a Buffalo Bills team who looks to be the best team in the AFC. Josh Allen has the offense where they were last season, and the defense has picked things up. Goliath prevails in this matchup.

    Minnesota Vikings (3-4) at Baltimore Ravens (5-2)

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

      • YouTube TV

    The Minnesota Vikings were handed a brutal loss in Week 8 after failing to beat Dallas with a backup QB. While the 3-4 record is not the best indication of how the Vikings have played this season, this team struggles to close out games. The loss of DE Danielle Hunter for the season is bad news, but it’s even worse facing off against Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson in the first game after his injury.

    Late-afternoon NFL TV schedule

    Who faces off in the late slate of NFL games today in Week 9? Can the Packers overcome the absence of Aaron Rodgers?

    Los Angeles Chargers (4-3) at Philadelphia Eagles (3-5)

    • Channel: CBS
    • Start time: 4:05 PM ET
    • Live stream:
      • Sling
      • Hulu + Live TV
      • fuboTV
      • YouTube TV

    The first of three NFL games in today’s evening window, the Los Angeles Chargers take on the Philadelphia Eagles at 4:05 PM. Chargers QB Justin Herbert and the offense have struggled the past two weeks against some strong defenses in the Ravens and Patriots.

    The Eagles will not challenge Herbert in the pocket nearly as much as he has been the past two weeks. If the Eagles’ offense can stay productive and viable for a full 60 minutes, Philadelphia has a chance. But that has been a struggle this season.

    Green Bay Packers (4-4) at Kansas City Chiefs (5-3)

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

    Despite the condition the Kansas City Chiefs have been in this season, this game would probably still be considered the Game of the Week. However, after the Green Bay Packers announced QB Aaron Rodgers tested positive for COVID-19, a lot has changed.

    Jordan Love starts the first game of his career and gets to show off his stuff against the NFL version of a sieve. Patrick Mahomes desperately needs wins to creep back into postseason contention and could catch a break with Love’s debut over a typical Rodgers outing.

    Arizona Cardinals (7-1) at San Francisco 49ers (3-4)

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

      • YouTube TV

    The final NFL game today for Week 9’s Sunday slate, this NFC West showdown between the Arizona Cardinals and San Francisco 49ers kicks off at 4:25 PM. Arizona will be hungry to return to the win column after suffering their first loss of the season in Week 8.

    While the defense has struggled to defend against the run, Arizona’s offense should have the same effect on the 49ers’ secondary. Murray is an MVP candidate for a reason, and the level of play he has shown this season has been awe-inspiring. While it may be closer than many would expect, the Cardinals move on to 8-1.
