Week 3 of the NFL season continues on Sunday, Sept. 25 with a jam-packed slate of 14 games. This is the busiest the early-afternoon slate will be for a while, as international games and bye weeks kick in soon.
Included in the nine early games are four divisional matchups, highlighted by the AFC East showdown between the Bills and Dolphins. The late slate is full of quality games, with four of the five matchups featuring both teams at .500 or better.
This is also one of the better weeks for quarterback pairings. From Josh Allen-Tua Tagovailoa at 1 p.m. to Aaron Rodgers-Tom Brady at 4:25 and even Jimmy Garoppolo-Russell Wilson on "Sunday Night Football," there is intrigue all day long.
So if you're wondering "What NFL games are on today?" know this: There are 14 scheduled for today, Sunday, Sept. 25.
Note: Games are ordered by start time. All times are ET.
NFL Games on TV Today
New Orleans at Carolina, 1 p.m. on FOX
After an 0-2 start, Matt Rhule could really use a win to keep his hot seat from overheating. Jameis Winston is just 4-6 in his career against the Panthers, although he lost his only game against them in New Orleans, so maybe there's hope.
Houston at Chicago, 1 p.m. on CBS
Lovie Smith will have another Soldier Field homecoming after losing in his previous try in 2013 when he was with the Bucs. This game could be a good measuring stick as the teams look to rebuild and see what they have in Davis Mills and Justin Fields.
Kansas City at Indianapolis, 1 p.m. on CBS
This might've looked like a potential playoff preview at the start of the season, but the Colts have been one of the biggest disappointments this season. Accordingly, the Chiefs are the heavy road favorites of the week at 5.5 points.
Buffalo at Miami, 1 p.m. on CBS
Mike McDaniel's offense has Miami looking like a playoff team, and this will be a big test. As the only matchup between undefeated teams this week, this is the highlight of the Week 3 slate.
Detroit at Minnesota, 1 p.m. on FOX
This could be a sneaky high-scoring game thanks to two of the most exciting and dynamic young receivers in the league. Justin Jefferson and Amon-Ra St. Brown rank sixth (116.0) and 11th (90.0), respectively in receiving yards per game this season and are just in their age-23 seasons.
Baltimore at New England, 1 p.m. on FOX
Lamar Jackson is back in MVP form, and the real question is if he can drag his (injured) supporting cast over the line and back to the playoffs. With both teams at 1-1, this game could have big tiebreaker implications.
Cincinnati at New York Jets, 1 p.m. on CBS
Perhaps the plot twist of the season is Joe Flacco earning his first win since October 2019 last week. If he can do it again this week, he'll drop the Bengals to 0-3 like it's the pre-Joe Burrow days again.
Las Vegas at Tennessee, 1 p.m. on FOX
After making the playoffs last season, both teams are off to 0-2 starts. Even at this early juncture in the season, the AFC is loaded enough that an 0-3 start may be too much to overcome. No pressure!
Philadelphia at Washington, 1 p.m. on FOX
It's another revenge game for Carson Wentz, and he's off to a big start with 650 passing yards and seven touchdowns through two games. But the Eagles' defense will be a much bigger challenge than the Jaguars and Lions. Plus, the defense's familiarity with catching his passes in practice can't help.
Jacksonville at Los Angeles Chargers, 4:05 p.m. on CBS
Assuming health for Justin Herbert, this may be one of the most exciting quarterback matchups of the week when the Chargers face Trevor Lawrence and the Jags. Could we look back in a few years and see the first matchup between MVPs?
Los Angeles Rams at Arizona, 4:25 p.m. on FOX
These teams met in the playoffs last year, and although the Rams went on to win the Super Bowl, the 2022 season has not gone as expected. Still, today's game represents an opportunity for the winner to move into pole position in the NFC West.
Atlanta at Seattle, 4:25 p.m. on FOX
While neither team is expected to compete for a playoff spot, Marcus Mariota and Geno Smith are playing for their jobs. If they don't do well enough this season, they'll have their team in place to select their replacement high in next year's draft.
Green Bay at Tampa Bay, 4:25 p.m. on FOX
We hate to say it, but this could be the last-ever matchup between Rodgers and Brady. And, unfortunately, it looks like it may be a low-scoring affair given the injuries to each offense and the strength of each defense. Still, any opportunity to see these living legends go head-to-head is appointment television.
Jimmy Garoppolo and Russell Wilson will face off for the sixth time. Wilson has four wins in that series, but now that he's on the Broncos, the 49ers are actually road favorites. Could San Francisco actually be a bigger Super Bowl threat now that Trey Lance is out for the season?
