Sunday's NFL slate ends with a game that's been 20 years in the making

Week 4 of the NFL season continues on Sunday, Oct. 3, with a packed slate of 14 games. Although there is only one matchup with two playoff teams from last season, there are plenty of intriguing storylines.

Three different games have teams with a combined five or more wins through Week 3, including Panthers-Cowboys in the early slate and Cardinals-Rams and Ravens-Broncos in the late afternoon. Plus there are some interesting reunions between coaches, players, and brothers. 

But, of course, the game everyone is looking forward to is on "Sunday Night Football." Tom Brady is coming back to New England for the first time since leaving for Tampa Bay and winning a Super Bowl. This one might break recent viewership records.

So if you're wondering "What NFL games are on today?" know this: There are 14 scheduled for today, Sunday, Oct. 3.

Note: Games are ordered by start time. All times are ET.

Carolina at Dallas, 1 p.m. ET on FOX

The Panthers are surprisingly one of the five remaining undefeated teams, although the Cowboys will present their biggest challenge yet. Can they slow down Dak Prescott and Co. with first-rounder Jaycee Horn and safety Juston Burris sidelined indefinitely?

Washington at Atlanta, 1 p.m. on FOX

Both teams entered the season with playoff aspirations but are off to 1-2 starts. The Falcons are hoping that Matt Ryan shows signs of life to prove that they weren't mistaken to pass on a quarterback at the top of the draft this April.

Houston at Buffalo, 1 p.m. on CBS

The Texans have gotten off to a better than expected start, but they're still the biggest underdogs of the week at 17 points. Can they keep it close with three more days to prepare, coming off a 15-point "Thursday Night Football" loss?

Detroit at Chicago, 1 p.m. on FOX

Don't forget that the Lions won their last game at Soldier Field. They nearly upset the Ravens last week if not for a record-setting field goal, so we'll see how feisty they are in this divisional matchup.

Indianapolis at Miami, 1 p.m. on CBS

Jacoby Brissett will face off against his former team as he fills in for an injured Tua Tagovailoa. The Colts are still desperate for their first win, and this could be the worst quarterback matchup of the week.

Cleveland at Minnesota, 1 p.m. on CBS

Kevin Stefanski was an assistant for the Vikings for 14 seasons and worked under Mike Zimmer for six of those years, so he is intimately familiar with Minnesota. Expect a high-scoring affair between potent offenses.

New York Giants at New Orleans, 1 p.m. on FOX

The Saints are set to play their first true home game since Hurricane Ida displaced them. And it's hard to pick an easier opponent, as the Giants are missing two of their top receivers and have been held to two touchdowns or less twice already.

Tennessee at New York Jets, 1 p.m. on CBS

Call it the Corey Davis Bowl, as the former No. 5 overall pick will face off against his former team. Davis has been held to just 12 receptions for 146 yards and two scores through three games, though, which is emblematic of how much of a work in progress the Jets are under a rookie quarterback and head coach.

Kansas City at Philadelphia, 1 p.m. on CBS

There are storylines galore in this game. This is the Chiefs' first time having a losing record with Patrick Mahomes. Andy Reid goes up against his old team. Even brothers Jason and Travis Kelce are facing off.

Arizona at Los Angeles Rams, 4:05 p.m. on FOX

First place in the NFC West is on the line as these 3-0 teams face off at SoFi Stadium. There could be more turnovers than punts with how high-powered these offenses are, even if the Rams have historically kept Kyler Murray (relatively) in check.

Seattle at San Francisco, 4:05 p.m. on FOX

Seahawks-Niners has been one of the best rivalries in recent years, and we can add another chapter to that book this afternoon. Seattle has not lost three straight games in a season since 2011, but that could change with a loss today.

Baltimore at Denver, 4:25 p.m. on CBS

The Broncos remain undefeated but will face their toughest opponent yet after opening the season against three now-0-3 teams. The real question may be whether these Ravens are the team that barely beat the Lions or the one that toppled the Chiefs.

Pittsburgh at Green Bay, 4:25 p.m. on CBS

This game might have recently been a premier matchup, but Ben Roethlisberger looks like a shell of his old self. Maybe a rematch of Super Bowl XLV will light a fire under him?

Tampa Bay at New England, 8:20 p.m. on NBC (SNF)

Here's the matchup we've all been waiting for. Tom Brady vs. Bill Belichick. The debate will continue forever about which person had a bigger impact on the Patriots' dynasty, but let's try not to put too much weight on this one (lopsided) matchup.
