2016 NFL Week Three Live: Early Afternoon Games

Although the Texans lost Thursday, there’s still a lot of great football on. Stop by in our open thread and enjoy the games with us at BRB.

With Love. For Tim.

What a perfect day for football if you are a NFL Sunday Ticketless or RedZoneless Texans fan. Houston already lost Thursday night. The Cowboys aren’t on because they are playing the Bears tonight. That means we get the best of the best around these parts.

Denver-Cincinnati is the early CBS game, and it will be awesome to see two potential playoff teams, with Andy Dalton going up against a mean pass rush and the Broncos’ rejuvenated offensive line taking on that Bengals front seven.

The second CBS game is between two 2-0 teams in the Keystone Light State Bowl. Carson Wentz and Ben Roethlisberger will be showing off that small school grit and moxy, unless you live in Houston. If you are there, you get to watch Andrew Luck try to throw for 500 yards and win a one possession game against the San Diego Chargers. If you are watching either one of these games, stay around for our second open thread, which will post at 3 p.m. CDT.

FOX has an early game, too. The entire damn state will be getting Redskins-Giants. Can the Giants toss the last shovelful of dirt onto the D.C. coffin? I don’t know. That’s why you watch the game.

If you are a member of the bourgeoisie and get Sunday Ticket or Red Zone to follow your imaginary football team, the following games will also be on during the early afternoon window.


Broncos @ Bengals

Browns @ Miami

Raiders @ Titans

Ravens @ Jaguars


Washington @ Giants

Cardinals @ Bills

Lions @ Packers

Vikings @ Panthers
