Raiders fans get to sit back and enjoy a Sunday of football while the Raiders players get to do the same. Even with the Raiders not playing, we still have to know what's going on around the NFL - especially inside the division.
There is one division rival playing among the early games. It's the Chargers who get the pleasure of heading to Jacksonville to face the worst team in football. The Chargers are a hard team to figure out. A week after the Raiders laid the boom on them in Oakland, they go and beat the then 4-1 Colts. The win wasn't a total loss, however. It gave us this classic GIF.
The Jaguars could also surprise as well and the Chargers porous defense is a good place to start.
There are a great many games on tap in the early going, as there usually is. The headliner would be the Bengals and their solid defense facing off against the Lions top flight offense in Detroit.
Then there's the Buccaneers at Falcons, Bills at Dolphins, Patriots at Jets, Cowboys at Eagles, Bears at Redskins, and Rams at Panthers.
Let's get it going.
