Come chat about the early slate of games on Sunday.

It’s the bye week for the Detroit Lions, which is either an opportunity to disengage from the NFL completely or a chance to simply enjoy football without all those pesky emotions attached to things.

Personally, I choose the latter, which means there’s a slate of games this afternoon that I’m going to sit back and enjoy watching. Sure, it isn’t the most exciting set of games, but I’m a football junkie, and I rarely get the opportunity to watch other teams on Sundays when I’m so mixed up with the Lions.

So if you’re one of those people, too. Here’s a look at the early slate of games on the docket:

Panthers vs. Falcons (FOX)
Raiders vs. Chiefs (CBS)
Cardinals vs. Jets (FOX
Eagles at Steelers (FOX)
Rams at Football Team (FOX)
Bengals at Ravens (CBS)
Jaguars at Texans (CBS)

Feel free to chat about the early slate of games in the comment section below. Or if you want some live commentary from myself and Jonathan Blevins, we’ll be breaking down Raiders at Chiefs and Eagles at Steelers on Super Squares’ Twitch page. I’ll embed it below.
