Week 3 of the NFL season continues on Sunday, Sept. 26, with an exciting slate of 14 games. Four matchups include playoff teams from last season, and there are three divisional matchups with potential postseason implications.
Once again, all eyes will be on the rookie quarterbacks. Chicago's Justin Fields is making his first NFL start, while Jacksonville's Trevor Lawrence and the Jets' Zach Wilson are still searching for their first win. The 49ers' Trey Lance could make an appearance on "Sunday Night Football" as well.
The game of the day, however, is in the late afternoon when the Buccaneers and Rams meet at SoFi Stadium. This will be Tom Brady's first game in Los Angeles — he didn't play in Michigan's 1998 Rose Bowl appearance — and the Rams beat the Bucs at Raymond James Stadium in 2020 before trading for Matthew Stafford.
So if you're wondering "What NFL games are on today?" know this: There are 14 scheduled for today, Sunday, Sept. 26.
Note: Games are ordered by start time. All times are ET.

New Orleans at New England, 1 p.m. on FOX
The Saints and Patriots may not have their famous quarterbacks anymore, but Sean Payton vs. Bill Belichick will be one of the best coaching matchups of the week. The big question may be which quarterback is the real Jameis Winston: Week 1 with five touchdowns and no picks or Week 2 with no scores and two interceptions?
Washington at Buffalo, 1 p.m. on FOX
Bills head coach Sean McDermott used to work under Ron Rivera in Carolina, and Rivera won their first matchup in McDermott's first season as head coach in 2017. Can the pupil get revenge?
Chicago at Cleveland, 1 p.m. on FOX
Justin Fields is making his first career NFL start, and it will be a tough one against a fierce Browns defense. With appearances in two games, Fields is 8-of-15 for 70 yards with an interception as a passer and has added 34 yards and a score (on 11 carries) with his legs.
Baltimore at Detroit, 1 p.m. on CBS
Dan Campbell is still looking for his first win as head coach of the Lions, and he'll have to face off against a Ravens team fresh off upsetting the AFC champion Chiefs at home.
Indianapolis at Tennessee, 1 p.m. on CBS
Carson Wentz has been questionable to play all week since spraining both ankles last week against the Rams. The Colts will need him healthy and effective to take down the division favorites.
Los Angeles Chargers at Kansas City, 1 p.m. at CBS
The AFC West is the strongest division in the conference, if not the league, and the loser of this game will drop to last place. The Chargers topped the Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium earlier this year, but Patrick Mahomes and other key players were resting in Week 17.
Atlanta at New York Giants, 1 p.m. on FOX
Both teams are off to disappointing starts, but at least one of their winless seasons will come to an end. Let's pray we don't end up with a tie.
Cincinnati at Pittsburgh, 1 p.m. on CBS
The Bengals beat the Steelers at Heinz Field last December, and now Joe Burrow is back. Can Cincinnati pull off another upset? That may depend on how many defenders Pittsburgh gets back from injury.
Arizona at Jacksonville, 1 p.m. on FOX
Urban Meyer lost three games total over his last two seasons at Ohio State. He may match that mark through three games in Jacksonville. The Jaguars have lost 17 straight, and another defeat would give them one of the five longest losing streaks in NFL history.
New York Jets at Denver, 4:05 p.m. on CBS
Zach Wilson is tied for the NFL "lead" with five interceptions, and the Broncos are tied for 10th in the league with two picks. This will be a big test for the rookie against one of the league's seven remaining undefeated teams.
Miami at Las Vegas, 4:05 p.m. on CBS
The Dolphins are operating without Tua Tagovailoa, who exited last week's game with fractured ribs. They weren't very effective on offense with Jacoby Brissett last week and now have to contend with the top statistical aerial attack in the league.
Tampa Bay at Los Angeles Rams, 4:25 p.m. on FOX
Could this be a preview of the NFC Championship Game? The Rams are a popular pick after copying Tampa Bay's strategy of adding a veteran quarterback to a team loaded with defensive and skill-position talent. Let's see how it looks against the real thing.
Seattle at Minnesota, 4:25 p.m. on FOX
Pete Carroll is 7-0 against the Vikings, but many of the games have been close. Minnesota fans will surely never forget Blair Walsh's missed 27-yard field goal to lose a 2016 playoff and last season's "Sunday Night Football" game when DK Metcalf scored a fourth-down touchdown in the final seconds.
This rivalry between NFL powerhouses has many great games, and tonight's could join those ranks. Aaron Rodgers ran up the score last time they met in November 2020.
