But what the day lacks in volume, it makes up for with intriguing storylines. The early slate has several games with postseason implications, especially in the AFC where the Chiefs visit the Titans and the Bengals visit the Ravens.
The late slate, meanwhile, is filled with stars facing their former teams. Everyone has been looking forward to the Rams and Lions, who kicked off the offseason quarterback carousel, plus there's all the former Texans on the Cardinals and an All-Pro looking for revenge on "Sunday Night Football."
So if you're wondering "What NFL games are on today?" know this: There are 11 scheduled for today, Sunday, Oct. 24.
Note: Games are ordered by start time. All times are ET.
NFL Games on TV Today
New York Jets at New England, 1 p.m. on CBS
The Patriots made easy work of the Jets in Week 2, winning 25-6 in New York. Can Zach Wilson get revenge in the battle of first-round QBs after throwing four interceptions in the first matchup?
Carolina at New York Giants, 1 p.m. on FOX
Matt Rhule and Joe Judge each have a mixed tenure as first-time NFL head coaches after getting hired two offseasons ago. Daniel Jones has an opportunity to give New York a win against his hometown team.
Washington at Green Bay, 1 p.m. on FOX
Both teams made the playoffs last season, but they have gone in opposite directions since. Washington's defense looks unrecognizable after being one of the top units in the league last year, and Aaron Rodgers will be a big test for it.
Kansas City at Tennessee, 1 p.m. on CBS
By far the best game of the early slate, we could see a rematch in the playoffs. After all, these teams have met in two of the last four playoffs, which each team winning once. Expect a lot of scoring.
Atlanta at Miami, 1 p.m. on FOX
There's plenty of smoke surrounding whether or not the Dolphins are trying to trade for Deshaun Watson, but in the meantime, Miami is badly in need of a bounce-back game after falling to the lowly Jaguars in London last week.
Cincinnati at Baltimore, 1 p.m. on CBS
Few would have expected these two teams to be atop the AFC North at this point in the season, but here we are. The Ravens are on a five-game winning streak both this season and against the Bengals overall, so Cincinnati has a lot of recent history to overcome.
Philadelphia at Las Vegas, 4:05 p.m. on FOX
The Raiders won big in their first game following the Jon Gruden fallout, and now they return home to face a struggling Eagles team. However, they're only three-point favorites, insinuating that these teams are essentially even (minus home-field advantage).
Detroit at Los Angeles Rams, 4:05 p.m. on FOX
How lucky are we that the Lions and Rams meet the year they swapped starting quarterbacks? The game may not be close, but it should be interesting to see how well Jared Goff and Matthew Stafford do against their former teams.
Houston at Arizona, 4:25 p.m. on CBS
Speaking of reunions, J.J. Watt and DeAndre Hopkins will be going up against their former team (and David Johnson on the other side) for the first time as well. The Cardinals are the last undefeated team in the league and are heavily favored to remain so.
Chicago at Tampa Bay, 4:25 p.m. on CBS
When Tom Brady was a rookie in New England, Justin Fields was just a one-year-old. Now they're facing off in an intriguing late-afternoon game. The Bears actually won this matchup last season when Brady infamously forgot what down it was.
Call this the DeForest Buckner Bowl as the All-Pro defensive lineman will visit his former team. Both teams had playoff aspirations before the season but have seen their seasons go sideways.
