NFL Playoff Games on TV Today (Sunday, Jan. 5)

NFL Games on TV Today (Sunday, Oct. 4)

Week 4 of the NFL season brings with it a jam-packed slate of games on Sunday, Sept. 27. Fans won't get the full 14 games originally scheduled since the Steelers-Titans game was postponed and moved to Week 7 due to a COVID-19 breakout and Patriots-Chiefs has also been postponed (could be moved to Monday or Tuesday). However, there are plenty of intriguing games. For the second straight week, there are no divisional games, which leaves us with some unique AFC-NFC pairings. Nearby rivals Washington and Baltimore will face off, Tom Brady and the Buccaneers will host the feisty Chargers, and "Sunday Night Football" pits the Eagles and 49ers against each other in a matchup that admittedly may have looked better on paper at the start of the year.

So if you're wondering "What NFL games are on today?" know this: There are 12 scheduled for today, Sunday, Oct. 4.

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

NFL Games on TV Today

Jacksonville at Cincinnati, 1 p.m. on CBS

This AFC matchup may not be as bad as it looked when the season started. Joe Burrow is quickly coming into is own with 628 yards, five touchdowns, and no interceptions in his last two games. He's still searching for his first win, though, and a resurgent Jaguars team led by Gardner Minshew II and undrafted rookie running back James Robinson could make this a fun affair.

Cleveland at Dallas, 1 p.m. on FOX

Don't look now, but the Browns are off to their first 2-1 start since 2011. Never mind that they finished that season 4-12 under Pat Shurmur. Moving to 3-1 for the first time since 2001 may be hard, though, since this could be a shootout in Big D. Can Baker Mayfield and Co. keep up with Dallas' high-flying offense?

New Orleans at Detroit, 1 p.m. on FOX

Believe it or not, the Saints have lost three of their last four games to the Lions, so this game is far from a gimme. Both teams are desperate for a win at 1-2, albeit for different reasons. The Saints entered the season as NFC favorites and are seeing their chance at the lone, coveted, first-round bye slipping away. Meanwhile, every win extends head coach Matt Patricia's tenure in Detroit another day.

Seattle at Miami, 1 p.m. on FOX

The Seahawks have a chance to move to 4-0 for just the second time in franchise history, although they'll have to play at 10 a.m. body time with this East Coast trip to South Beach. Led by Myles Gaskin, Mike Gesicki, and DeVante Parker, the Dolphins' offense has looked excellent lately with 59 points and 704 yards over the past two weeks. Don't sleep on the Fins.

Los Angeles Chargers at Tampa Bay, 1 p.m. on CBS

The Buccaneers' offense has come along slowly this year, and Tom Brady will have to try to keep things humming without Chris Godwin and Leonard Fournette. Meanwhile, the Chargers may not have entered the season as playoff favorites, but they've kept all three of their games within a score.

Baltimore at Washington, 1 p.m. on CBS

Once every four years, these neighbors get the chance to play, but the matchup hasn't been this lopsided perhaps ever. In 2008, the Ravens dispatched of Washington by 14 points, but all other games have been decided by seven points or fewer.

Arizona at Carolina, 1 p.m. on FOX

The Cardinals were the darlings of the start of the season with a high-flying offense led by Kyler Murray and DeAndre Hopkins. But they got their first dose of reality last week against the hapless Lions when they turned it over on downs in their final two drives of the game. Meanwhile, Matt Rhule picked up his first win as an NFL coach last week and is ready to prove that the Panthers can make a run even without Christian McCaffrey.

Minnesota at Houston, 1 p.m. on FOX

It's hard to decide which team has been more disappointing this season: the Vikings or the Texans. Both are 0-3 after each making the playoffs two out of the last three years. The good news is someone has to win this game, barring a tie.

New York Giants at Los Angeles Rams, 4:05 p.m. on FOX

The Joe Judge era is off to a slow start with three losses coming by a combined 41 points. Daniel Jones still needs to establish himself as a starting quarterback as well, with four interceptions and two fumbles through three games, and facing Aaron Donald, Jalen Ramsey, and the Rams defense is yet another tough assignment.

Indianapolis at Chicago, 4:25 p.m. on CBS

Despite making a change at quarterback, the Bears are off to their first 3-0 start since 2013. Nick Foles will get his first start for Chicago and faces off against a quarterback in just his fourth start with his new team: Philip Rivers. Although the quarterbacks are the big story, this could be a low-scoring affair with two of the league's better defenses.

Buffalo at Las Vegas, 4:25 p.m. on CBS

Josh Allen vs. Derek Carr is the kind of matchup that could drop jaws or drive you crazy. And likely a bit of both. These talented but enigmatic quarterbacks are trying to lead their teams to the playoffs and need to beat these kinds of opponents to prove their mettle.

Philadelphia at San Francisco, 8:20 p.m. on NBC (SNF)

NFL schedule-makers were probably imagining that pitting two of the last three NFC champions against each other on SNF would make for great TV. Unfortunately, early-season injuries have decimated both teams. The Eagles are still searching for their first win, but backup quarterback Nick Mullens will do his best to prevent that.
