NFL Games Today: Sunday, November 8 (Week 9 Early Games) | NFL Stream and Channel
Denver Broncos (3-4) at Atlanta Falcons (2-6) – 1 PM ET | CBS
The Broncos take on the Atlanta Falcons at 1 PM ET and are scheduled to be broadcast on CBS. The Broncos come in off a thrilling comeback win over the Los Angeles Chargers, while the Falcons are fresh off a divisional win.
The Falcons are an enigma this season. If they were able to hold onto a few leads and not collapse in historical fashion, they’d be near the top of the standings and in the thick of the playoff race. Raheem Morris wouldn’t be the interim head coach, and we’d be praising Dan Quinn for the job he’s been doing in leading this team in 2020. But, we all know that we can’t live in a world of hypotheticals, and you are what your record says you are.
Fortunately, though, Morris has won 2 of his 3 games as interim head coach, and if not for Todd Gurley making a massive mental error, he’d likely be 3-0. That’s why the Broncos cannot take Atlanta lightly in today’s game. Drew Lock is back under center, and he’ll look to spread the ball around to his talented playmakers on the field.
Seattle Seahawks (6-1) at Buffalo Bills (6-2) – 1 PM ET | FOX
What time is this NFL game today? The Seahawks vs. Bills matchup kicks off at 1 PM ET, and the TV schedule shows that it will be broadcast on FOX. The Bills defense has allowed opponents to score 24.9 points per game this season.
The good news for them is that the Seahawks have given up the same amount of points in one less game. The bad news? The Seahawks offense has scored 42 more points than the Bills in one less game. #LetRussCook is still in full effect, but if Bills QB Josh Allen wants to salvage any chance at an MVP trophy, a big win against Seattle would be a good feather in his cap.
He’ll get a decent chance to do that today, especially if he’s able to find Stefon Diggs. Seattle gives up an average of 21.3 fantasy points per game to wide receivers who get seven or more targets against them – Diggs is averaging ten targets per game. Look for this connection to take off today. If it does, Seattle may be in trouble.
Chicago Bears (5-3) at Tennessee Titans (5-2) – 1 PM ET | FOX
This game kicks off at 1 PM ET and will be broadcast on FOX. The Titans wish they could have last week back. After dropping their first loss of the season to the Pittsburgh Steelers, the team failed to show up in the first half against the Bengals. While the offense is liable to go off at any time, the defense is struggling mightily heading into the halfway point. Is this just a bump in the road for the team who made it to the AFC Championship Game in 2019, or is this a matter of the Titans showing some regression after a hot start to the 2020 season?
The Titans get a chance to rebound against a Bears offense that has also seen some struggles this season. Chicago has gotten its fair share of ugly wins this season, but that mojo finally found its match as they failed to pull off a win against the Saints. The Bears have just as many questions to answer on offense – especially with Nick Foles under center – as the Titans do on defense. This game will come down to Tennessee’s offense vs. Chicago’s defense.
Baltimore Ravens (5-2) at Indianapolis Colts (5-2) – 1 PM ET | CBS
This Week 9 NFL game today between the Ravens and Colts kicks off at 1 PM ET, and the TV schedule shows that it will be broadcast on CBS. The Ravens played a great game against the Steelers in Week 8 but came up just short. They are a solid team but take on a talented Colts squad as well.
Baltimore’s No. 1 rushing offense in the NFL takes on the Colts’ rushing defense ranked second overall, allowing just 79.9 rushing yards per game. If the Ravens are forced to pass more, it could spell trouble for their chances of a win. That said, Dez Bryant is expected to be in the lineup, but after a few years off from football, will he be able to make any notable impact on the game today? While he may be a great addition for the Ravens looming playoff run, it may be a few weeks before we see him making a difference as he works to get back into game shape.
Carolina Panthers (3-5) at Kansas City Chiefs (7-1) – 1 PM ET | FOX
What time is this NFL game today? This game kicks off at 1 PM and will be broadcast on FOX. Kansas City gets treated with a nice two-game lull before two crucial matchups with Oakland and Tampa Bay. While the Carolina Panthers offer a bigger challenge than the New York Jets, the Chiefs are clearly the better team. That said, it should be quite an interesting matchup.
The Panthers are getting back Christian McCaffrey, and you know he’ll be ready to go with fresh legs. The Panthers offense has been potent as of late, and they’ll likely be able to keep up with the Chiefs in any shootout. Could this be the upset of the week? We’ll know for sure by the time the late afternoon games kick off.
Detroit Lions (3-4) at Minnesota Vikings (2-5) – 1 PM ET | CBS
Today, this Week 9 NFL game starts at 1 PM ET, and the TV schedule shows that it will be broadcast on CBS. The bottom of the standings division games are always fun because there never seems to be any expectations. Who knows what the Lions and Vikings have in store for NFL fans this week?
Detroit is surrendering 130 yards per game on the ground, and Dalvin Cook just ran buck wild all over Green Bay. The Vikings defense is nothing to talk up either, however. The bigger thing for them is the possible absence of Matthew Stafford at QB, forcing Chase Daniel to make a start for Detroit.
If the Lions lose, it will drive a deeper stake into the future of head coach Matt Patricia, who is on the second hottest seat in the NFL, only behind New York Jets head coach Adam Gase.
New York Giants (1-7) at Washington Football Team (2-5) – 1 PM ET | FOX
The New York Giants and Washington Football Team will kick off at 1 PM today and the NFL TV schedule shows that this game will be broadcast on FOX. It’s back-to-back bottom of the barrel divisional matchups on the TV Schedule this week (wait for it). Yet doesn’t every NFC East divisional game feel that way this season?
Washington has a chance to set itself up as the main competitor in the NFC East alongside the Eagles. A Giants win sends this division even deeper into embarrassment. The last time these two teams met three weeks ago, Jones threw for only 112 yards and one touchdown and rushed for 74 yards. This one is going to be ugly.
Houston Texans (1-6) at Jacksonville Jaguars (1-6) – 1 PM ET | CBS
What time is this Week 9 NFL game today between the Texans and Jaguars? It kicks off at 1 PM ET, and the TV schedule shows that it will be broadcast on CBS. The trifecta of lowly divisional games in the early window wraps up with the struggling Texans taking on a young and inexperienced Jaguars squad.
Both the Texans and Jaguars get the benefit of returning from the bye this week, but only one will send out it’s starting QB. Jacksonville starts rookie Jake Luton after Gardner Minshew went out indefinitely due to a fracture and ligament damage in his right thumb.
Meanwhile, the Texans have all the talent in the world but can’t seem to figure it out. They’re at the bottom of the league and look to be headed for some top draft picks to bolster their roster. Actually, wait. Former head coach Bill O’Brien basically traded all of them away. The Dolphins hold their first and second-round picks in 2021 after O’Brien inexplicably traded them away for OT Laremy Tunsil, who has obviously not helped the team in the win column.
NFL Games Today: Sunday, November 8 (Week 9 Late Games) | NFL Stream and Channel
Las Vegas Raiders (4-3) at Los Angeles Chargers (2-5) – 4:05 PM ET | FOX
The Las Vegas Raiders and Los Angeles Chargers will kick off at 4:05 PM ET on CBS. Another one-score loss adds another tally in the column for a frustrating season thus far for the Chargers. Rookie QB Justin Herbert is playing well and is probably the best of all the rookie QBs this season. He has had the Chargers in a position to win in almost every game.
The Raiders will pose a bigger challenge to the Chargers defense than the Chargers offense. Week 8 was the first win this season in which the Raiders did not score at least 34 points. QB Derek Carr will look to get the team back on track, including WRs Nelson Agholor and Henry Ruggs.
Pittsburgh Steelers (7-0) at Dallas Cowboys (2-6) – 4:25 PM ET | CBS
The TV schedule has the last two NFL games today in the afternoon slot of Week 9 kicking off at 4:25 PM. This game features the Steelers and Cowboys broadcasting on CBS. This might be as ugly as the Chiefs-Jets game last week, but possibly even worse. As bad as New York has been this season, Dallas’ defense is worse, and the Pittsburgh Steelers are the most complete team in football right now.
Factor in the Cowboys turning to their fourth QB of the season, planning to start Garrett Gilbert on Sunday, and it’s going to be a long day in Jerry’s world. This one is going to pretty ugly very fast. I just don’t see any way the Cowboys can make this a competitive game with Rush under center against one of the best defenses – if not the best – in the entire NFL.
Oh, and by the way, did I mention this game was selected as the national broadcast for the late-afternoon window?
Miami Dolphins (4-3) at Arizona Cardinals (5-2) – 4:25 PM ET | CBS
The Miami Dolphins and Arizona Cardinals will kick off at 4:25 PM ET on CBS. Tua Tagovailoa’s debut was underwhelming, to say the least, but he was put in a position where he didn’t have to do much to help the Dolphins roll to victory. Miami has built a quietly dominant defense. The Dolphins have given up the least points against so far this season with just 130. However, they’ll have their hands full against a potent Cardinals offense.
Arizona is a strong team, but their only win that isn’t against a questionable opponent is the thrilling Week 7 Sunday night win over the Seahawks. The key matchup here will be seeing how well the Arizona defense can hold the Dolphins offense in check. But, with a decimated Dolphins backfield, which will see Jordan Howard and Patrick Laird get the majority of snaps, their job is going to be a bit easier. The battle of QBs wearing the No. 1 should be fun and if any of them are going to have to put their team on their back in this game, it’s going to be Tua Tagovailoa.
Week 9 Sunday Night Football | NFL Stream and Channel
New Orleans Saints (5-2) at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (6-2) – 8:20 PM ET | NBC
The last NFL game today on Sunday of Week 9 will be the Sunday Night Football game between the Saints and Buccaneers at 8:20 PM ET and will be broadcast on NBC.
This should be a great wrap-up to Week 9 on Sunday. Two teams neck-and-neck for their division separated by a bye week. The Saints took the matchup in Week 1, but both teams have changed so much since then. Both sides of the ball will be crucial for both teams as the rosters are stacked pretty even.
The return of Michael Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders will be invaluable for the Saints offense as they try to maintain some consistency on that side of the ball. Meanwhile, the Buccaneers will debut the Tom Brady-to-Antonio Brown connection. Both defenses are faced with serious challenges to slow down their respective opponents.
Week 9 Monday Night Football | NFL Stream and Channel
New England Patriots (2-5) at New York Jets (0-8) – 8:15 PM ET | ESPN
What time is the NFL Monday Night Football game on today? The Patriots vs. Jets matchup will kick off at 8:15 PM ET, and it’ll be broadcast on ESPN. This is exactly what the Patriots needed after last week’s disaster. A last-minute fumble from QB Cam Newton derailed everything in New England, notching their fourth consecutive loss.
The Patriots traded for Miami WR Isaiah Ford. While he lacks production thus far in the NFL, it seems more due to bodies in front of him and a lack of opportunities. Heading to a WR-needy team in the Patriots can allow Ford to break out and make a name for himself. The Jets GM Joe Douglas stated this week that he believes Adam Gase is part of the solution in New York. We might be watching a different team, but nothing Gase has done over the past two seasons would lead anyone to believe he could be a part of any solution for the Jets.
Call me crazy, but the Jets might actually be able to pull this one off and get their first win of the season.
Week 9 Thursday Night Football
Green Bay Packers (5-2) at San Francisco 49ers (4-4) – 8:20 PM | FOX, NFL Network
On Thursday Night Football this past week, the Green Bay Packers went into Levi’s Stadium and had no trouble dismantling a 49ers team that was riddled with injuries. In fact, many people joked that the Packers were essentially playing a team of practice squad players because, well, they pretty much were. The 49ers were without Jimmy Garoppolo, George Kittle, Deebo Samuel, Raheem Mostert, Jeff Wilson, Kendrick Bourne, and others – and that’s not even taking into account the losses on the defensive side of the ball earlier in the season with the likes of Joey Bosa, Dee Ford, and Richard Sherman.
Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams hooked up for 10 receptions and 173 yards for one touchdown, leading the Packers to a 34-17 victory. Aaron Jones added 58 yards rushing on the ground, and Marquez Valdes-Scantling added another 53 yards through the air. This Packers offense is rolling, and they’ll have a Week 10 matchup against the Jaguars.
