Your Jet-free Sunday early games discussion thread

A relaxing Sunday is in store with the Jets on the bye. Of course, with this being Draft Week, our focus is on draft positioning. So, let's enjoy today's games with an eye on which teams will be moving ahead of the Jets in terms of where they'll pick in April.

Here's some of the main things to watch out for:

AFC contenders looking to avoid falling into a trap

There are only two AFC teams with a winning record in action in the early games and each faces a dreaded trap game on the road against one of the league's worst teams. Will either slip up today?

Kansas City faces the Giants, while Jacksonville heads to Cleveland to face a Browns team that has been playing better recently and came close to picking up their first win a few times over the last month.

An unexpected game of the day candidate

On paper, the best early game is easily the Rams against the Vikings in Minnesota. It's the only one featuring two teams with winning records as both are unexpectedly 7-2. Who would have guessed one of these teams would have made an 8-2 start a couple of months ago?

Case Keenum might be looking over his shoulder with Teddy Bridgewater available again, but he's yet to turn in the pumpkin everyone's expecting him to and he has a shot at Jared Goff, the quarterback who replaced him last season.

The best of the rest

Three more NFC teams with winning records look to keep up their momentum against three teams with losing records. You'd expect Detroit to hold off Mitch Trubisky and the Bears, the Saints host Washington whose playoff chances will take a big hit if they drop to 4-6 and 5-4 Green Bay hosts the 4-5 Ravens. Brett Hundley seems to be settling into his starter role with the Packers, while the Ravens will get a boost from Danny Woodhead's return.

Finally, the other two matchups feature four teams who all have losing records and all have lost their starting quarterback. Ryan Fitzpatrick's Bucs face Miami, who just had to cut Rey Maualuga following an arrest over the weekend and the Cards face the Texans having not yet decided whether to start Drew Stanton or Blaine Gabbert yet.
