NFL Games on TV Today

New York Giants vs. Green Bay (London), 9:30 a.m. on NFL Network/live stream on fuboTV

The Packers are set to become the final team to play in the NFL International Series, and the Giants will be putting their undefeated record in London on the line. Both teams may be 3-1, but a beat-up Giants QB room makes the Packers heavy favorites.

Pittsburgh at Buffalo, 1 p.m. on CBS/live stream on fuboTV

This game has the largest spread of the week (14 points) — in fact, the Steelers haven't been this big of an underdog since the 1970 merger. Rookie Kenny Pickett will be making his first career start, and playing in Orchard Park is no easy task.

Los Angeles Chargers at Cleveland, 1 p.m. on CBS/live stream on fuboTV

This meeting of 2-2 AFC teams could have big playoff implications, with head-to-head record being the first tiebreaker. The Chargers are actually road favorites, thanks in large part to a passing attack that leads the league despite Justin Herbert's rib cartilage fracture.

Houston at Jacksonville, 1 p.m. on CBS/live stream on fuboTV

Two of the league's youngest teams are facing off in various stages of their rebuild. Houston is winless but has been within one score of every game, including one tie. Jacksonville, on the other hand, is looking like a real contender and will have a good chance to snap an eight-game skid in this series.

Chicago at Minnesota, 1 p.m. on FOX/live stream on fuboTV

With a Bears win (and a Packers loss), we could be facing a three-way tie for first in the NFC North at 3-2. But the Vikings swept both matchups last season and have looked good so far under rookie head coach Kevin O'Connell, while the Bears are still seeking consistency on offense.

Detroit at New England, 1 p.m. on FOX/live stream on fuboTV

The Patriots nearly won last week without Mac Jones, and now they get an easier matchup at home against the Lions. Don't sleep on Detroit, though, which has the league's top offense through four weeks. This is a must-win game for a pair of 1-3 teams.

Seattle at New Orleans, 1 p.m. on FOX/live stream on fuboTV

The Seahawks' offense is looking good with Geno Smith, but a matchup against a Saints team returning from London will be a big test. New Orleans won't have Jameis Winston or Michael Thomas back, but Alvin Kamara's expected return will boost the attack.

Miami at New York Jets, 1 p.m. on CBS/live stream on fuboTV

Teddy Bridgewater will be making his first start with the Dolphins, and he filled in admirably for Tua Tagovailoa in last week's loss to the Bengals. The Jets will be an easier opponent, although they did score a big win last week in Zach Wilson's season debut.

Atlanta at Tampa Bay, 1 p.m. on FOX/live stream on fuboTV

The Falcons have never beaten Tom Brady in 13 tries, including four over the last two seasons in Tampa Bay. Could that change on Sunday? The Bucs are 0-2 at home this season, and Atlanta has the offense to keep up.

Tennessee at Washington, 1 p.m. on CBS/live stream on fuboTV

Both teams have had disappointing starts to the season after entering with playoff expectations. A win would do wonders to keep their playoff hopes alive. Could Carson Wentz have something up his sleeve with a 3-0 record against the Titans?

San Francisco at Carolina, 4:05 p.m. on CBS/live stream on fuboTV

The 49ers have the league's top-ranked defense, which spells trouble for a Panthers offense that ranks last in yards per game. This game is probably more interesting from a fantasy perspective with studs like Christian McCaffrey and Deebo Samuel playing.

Philadelphia at Arizona, 4:25 p.m. on FOX/live stream on fuboTV

A pair of former Oklahoma quarterbacks will face off for the second straight week when Jalen Hurts and Kyler Murray meet. The Eagles are the final undefeated team left and have to make sure not to peer ahead at next week's game against the rival Cowboys.

Dallas at Los Angeles Rams, 4:25 p.m. on FOX/live stream on fuboTV

The Cooper Rush experience continues on against Cooper Kupp and the Rams. But perhaps the most exciting matchup to watch will be the Cowboys' vaunted pass rush going up against a porous L.A. offensive line that has left Matthew Stafford battered this season.

Cincinnati at Baltimore, 8:20 p.m. on NBC (SNF)/live stream on fuboTV

These teams' 2-2 records don't dampen the excitement surrounding this game. Joe Burrow vs. Lamar Jackson is the best quarterback matchup of the week, and these teams could easily meet again in the playoffs (in addition to their Week 18 game).
