NFL Week 10 early games open thread: Steelers-Browns, Eagles-Dolphins

New, comments

The Buffalo Bills have already won their Week 10 matchup, so let's watch some other NFL action on a relaxing Sunday afternoon, starting with these early games.

Sundays during the NFL season are 100 percent more relaxing when the Buffalo Bills have already secured a win on Thursday Night Football, aren't they?

Even though the Bills aren't playing today, we know you're probably still planning on watching football this afternoon, so here's an open thread for today's early games. Many of them have playoff implications for the Bills, who enter the day as the No. 5 seed in the AFC.

CBS

Miami Dolphins (3-5) at Philadelphia Eagles (4-4)

This game will be shown in the Buffalo area. The Bills will be playing the Eagles on the road here in about a month, so this'll be a good early opportunity to check out a key opponent down the stretch. A loss for Miami would deal a highly serious blow to their already-low playoff chances.

Cleveland Browns (2-7) at Pittsburgh Steelers (5-4)

This game will be shown in the Rochester area. Pittsburgh is the only team that can pass Buffalo in the AFC wild card race this weekend. This game is very likely to feature Johnny Manziel and Landry Jones as the starting quarterbacks, which might just increase the Browns' odds of pulling off an unexpected road upset.

FOX

New Orleans Saints (4-5) at Washington Redskins (3-5)

One week after the Bills travel to take on Philadelphia, they'll travel again to take on Washington - so again, here's a chance to scout a team that Buffalo will need to beat if they're going to keep themselves in the playoff field.

Jacksonville Jaguars (2-6) at Baltimore Ravens (2-6)
Detroit Lions (1-7) at Green Bay Packers (6-2)
Chicago Bears (3-5) at St. Louis Rams (4-4)
Dallas Cowboys (2-6) at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (3-5)
Carolina Panthers (8-0) at Tennessee Titans (2-6)
