Week 9 of the NFL season continues on Sunday, Nov. 7, with an intriguing slate of 12 games. We're back to having four teams on bye — Detroit, Seattle, Tampa Bay, and Washington — and only one has a winning record.
The highlight of the week (as of a couple of days ago) was clearly Packers-Chiefs, but that matchup looks a lot less intriguing with Aaron Rodgers' positive COVID test. The silver lining is that Jordan Love will finally make his first NFL start.
"Sunday Night Football" looks a bit less interesting as well with Derrick Henry out against the Rams. But there are still other good games on the schedule. The Browns and Bengals will meet in the early afternoon, while the Cardinals and 49ers will fight for NFC West supremacy in the late afternoon.
So if you're wondering "What NFL games are on today?" know this: There are 12 scheduled for today, Sunday, Nov. 7.
Note: Games are ordered by start time. All times are ET.

New England at Carolina, 1 p.m. on CBS
This is the Stephon Gilmore revenge game, as the All-Pro corner had an impressive debut last week for Carolina and is fired up to face his former team. Notably missing is Cam Newton, who will not get to face the Panthers for the first time.
Cleveland at Cincinnati, 1 p.m. on CBS
Odell Beckham Jr. is officially done in Cleveland, and the Browns are hoping that this will be addition by subtraction. Both AFC North teams are coming off of tough losses and could use a win to stay in the divisional race.
Denver at Dallas, 1 p.m. on FOX
This is the first game in more than a decade without Von Miller on the Broncos — minus the eight he's missed for injuries and suspensions — after trading the All-Pro to the Rams. Perhaps this is a sign that the Broncos staff doesn't think they're as good as their 4-4 record would indicate.
Houston at Miami, 1 p.m. on FOX
These teams have been tied together all year because of Deshaun Watson trade rumors, but the trade deadline came and went with no deal. And a finger injury will probably keep Tua Tagovailoa from playing as well, so get ready for Tyrod Taylor vs. Jacoby Brissett.
Atlanta at New Orleans, 1 p.m. on FOX
With Jameis Winston sidelined by a torn ACL, the Saints will turn to Trevor Siemian (with Taysom Hill mixed in). If they can pull off a win — as they've done in six of these last seven matchups — the Saints will move into a tie with the Buccaneers for first place in the NFC South.
Las Vegas at New York Giants, 1 p.m. on CBS
The Raiders are returning from a bye but are having one of the worst seasons off the field in recent years. The Giants, meanwhile, are looking a lot better after beating the Panthers by 22 and nearly taking down the Chiefs on the road on "Monday Night Football."
Buffalo at Jaguars, 1 p.m. on CBS
With so much upheaval in the AFC, the Bills look like runaway favorites in the conference. The Jaguars remain one of the worst teams in the league, making this the game with the largest spread of the week (14.5 points).
Minnesota at Baltimore, 1 p.m. on FOX
The Ravens' five-game winning streak came to an end last week with a brutal 41-17 loss to the Bengals. They'll have a chance to get back on track against the other purple-wearing NFL team.
Los Angeles Chargers at Eagles, 4:05 p.m. on CBS
All it took was a game against the Lions for the Eagles to look like a complete team. Meanwhile, Justin Herbert and the Chargers have looked off for two straight weeks now. Will these trends continue at Lincoln Financial Field?
Green Bay at Kansas City, 4:25 p.m. on FOX
This game once looked like a potential Super Bowl preview. That may still be the case, but Aaron Rodgers will not play after testing positive for COVID-19, and the Chiefs are just 4-4 as Patrick Mahomes looks merely mortal.
Arizona at San Francisco, 4:25 p.m. on FOX
The Cardinals beat the 49ers by a touchdown in Week 5, but San Francisco may have the upper hand this time because Kyler Murray is banged up.
It's too bad that Derrick Henry is out indefinitely because this would have been a potential Super Bowl preview had this game taken place a week ago. Still, this should be a fun offensive game without the rushing champ.
