Even without the Redskins today, the NFL has a full slate of games to keep you glued to the TV, laptop, tablet, etc. There are fantasy games to play and survivor pools to win. The New York Giants and Philadelphia Eagles square off in an NFC East battle with plenty of implications for the future of the division. TV info after the jump.
New York Giants (1-1) at Philadelphia Eagles (1-1): The Link will be rocking today when the Philadelphia Eagles host the New York Giants at 1 p.m. NFC East games tend to be battles, and this game should be the same. Fox will televise the game and the trio of Kenny Albert, Darryl Johnston and Tony Siragusa will provide commentary. Eagle's quarterback MIchael VIck will play despite suffering a concussion in last week's loss to the Atlanta Falcons. The Giants face plenty of injury issues - some real, some questionable - losing starters on both sides of the ball. Vegas set the Eagles as 8.5 point favorites. Let's hope this game is good, because CBS will not air an early game.
Green Bay Packers (2-0) at Chicago Bears (1-1): Defending Super Bowl champ Green Bay visits divisional rival Chicago today at 4:15 p.m. Fox will air the game with Joe Buck and Troy AIkman commenting from the booth. Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers has led the high flying Packers offense to two victories, though Brian Urlacher and the Chicago defense will try to slow Rodgers down. The Bears are 4.5 point underdogs.
Baltimore Ravens (1-1) at St. Louis Rams (0-2): The Ravens head to St. Louis fresh off last week's decisive loss to Tennessee. CBS will broadcast the game starting at 4:05 p.m. Kevin Harlan and Solomon Wilcots will announce the action. Many thought the Ravens to be the best team in the league after an opening week victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers, but the loss to the Titans created a lot of questions about the Ravens. Despite a poor start, the Rams moved the ball well in a Monday Night Football loss to the New York Giants last week.
