Your Jet-free Sunday early games thread

With the Jets not playing until tomorrow, we can enjoy today's action from around the NFL.

Here's what to watch out for in the early games:

  • Los Angeles Rams at Atlanta

Jalen Ramsey makes his debut for a Rams team that seems to be suffering a Super Bowl hangover at 3-3. The Falcons are 0-4 on the road, but won one of their two games at home.

  • Arizona at New York Giants

With Saquon Barkley looking set to return, that sets up an interesting battle between the top two quarterbacks selected in this April's draft. Kyler Murray is coming off the best game of his career so far, having passed for 340 yards last Sunday.

  • Houston at Indianapolis

The winner of this game will top the AFC South. Both teams are in good form, having each recently defeated the Chiefs. These are two of the top five rushing offenses in the NFL entering week seven.

  • Oakland at Green Bay

The Raiders have exceeded expectations so far with a 3-2 record but this Packers team is resilient, having pulled out a come-from-behind win over the Lions to go to 5-1. Oakland just signed tight end Darren Waller to a $9 million per year extension even though he was on Baltimore's practice squad this time last year.

  • Minnesota at Detroit

These two teams are going in opposite directions. The 4-2 Vikings have righted the ship after a rocky start and Kirk Cousins seems to have re-established some good chemistry with Stefon Diggs to get the passing game going. Detroit was undefeated going into week four, but are now 2-2-1.

  • Jacksonville at Cincinnati

The winless Bengals seem on the brink of a firesale, but they have a chance for their first win against a Jags team who just got rid of their best defensive player and who are trying to avoid losing three in a row and dropping to 2-5.

  • Miami at Buffalo

It's Buffalo's turn to beat up on the hapless Dolphins this week, as they should move to 5-1 on the year. This looks like being one of the least interesting games on this week's slate.

  • San Francisco at Washington

The 49ers are having an amazing season as they're the only team in the NFL in the top three for both defense and offense. Hopefully, by the end of this week, San Francisco will be the last remaining unbeaten team. Other than finding rookie of the year candidate Terry McLaurin, this seems like a lost year for Washington, who have lost five of six.
