Browns-Bengals and Vikings-Ravens are some of the best NFL clashes in Week 9, but what action will be available in your area?
The official end of the first half of the NFL season comes this weekend with the arrival of the Week 9 slate. The marquee game of the week took a heavy blow when Aaron Rodgers was sent off for the gigantic Packers-Chefs clash after a positive COVID test, but there are still plenty of intriguing matches going on, including a few key tests for the AFC contenders.

NFL Week 9 TV Coverage Cards
Thursday, November 4
Thursday Night Football (FOX / NFL Network)
New York Jets (2-5) vs. Indianapolis Colts (3-5): Joe Buck, Troy Aikman
This week’s Thursday night game will feature a reminder of Mike White’s experience as the Jets aim to claim their second straight victory over the Colts. Joe Buck and Troy Aikman are on call for the first of two Week 9 games.
Sunday November 7
CBS (single header)
Cleveland Browns (4-4) vs. Cincinnati Bengals (5-3) (red): Jim Nantz, Tony Romo
Las Vegas Raiders (5-2) vs. New York Giants (2-6) (green): Kevin Harlan, Trent Green
New England Patriots (4-4) vs. Carolina Panthers (4-4) (Yellow): Greg Gumbel, Adam Archuleta
Buffalo Bills (5-2) vs. Jacksonville Jaguars (1-6) (Orange): Andrew Catalon, James Lofton
Los Angeles Chargers (4-3) vs. Philadelphia Eagles (3-5) (Blue, 4:05 pm): Ian Eagle, Charles Davis
The Battle of Ohio is CBS’s best game this week and will go across the majority of the country within the 1:00 am window. Fans vying for a 4:05 game get a decent game as the struggling Chargers fly east to face the Eagles in a must-see game for Philadelphia.
FOX (Early Window)
Denver Broncos (4-4) vs. Dallas Cowboys (6-1) (Red): Kevin Burkhardt, Greg Olsen
Minnesota Vikings (3-4) vs. Baltimore Ravens (5-2) (Blue): Adam Amin, Mark Schlereth
Atlanta Falcons (3-4) vs. New Orleans Saints (5-2) (green): Kenny Albert, Jonathan Vilma
Houston Texans (1-7) vs. Miami Dolphins (1-7) (Yellow): Chris Myers, Daryl Johnston
FOX has a strong early window for its doubles program that will see the Broncos-Cowboys travel to most of the country. Vikings-Ravens and Falcons-Saints will get a decent share while the number of poor souls forced to watch Texans-Dolphins will be extremely limited.
FOX (late window)
Green Bay Packers (7-1) vs. Kansas City Chiefs (4-4) (red): Joe Buck, Troy Aikman
Arizona Cardinals (7-1) vs. San Francisco 49ers (3-4) (Blue): Kevin Kugler, Mark Sanchez
FOX has bet big on Packers-Chiefs as America’s Game of the Week and could lose big without Rodgers in action for a game that will be played across the vast majority of the country. The good news for them is that they have a decent Cardinals-49ers undercard they can switch to in case Jordan Love isn’t able to keep up with Patrick Mahomes.
Sunday Night Football (NBC)
Tennessee Titans (6-2) vs. Los Angeles Rams (7-1): Al Michaels, Cris Collinsworth
Sunday night’s game this week is excellent but takes a hit as Derrick Henry is out indefinitely with a foot injury. The Titans have played very well this season, but are undergoing a major test against a Rams defense that is expected to beat Von Miller in his Los Angeles debut.
Monday, November 8
Monday Night Football (ESPN)
Chicago Bears (3-5) vs. Pittsburgh Steelers (4-3): Steve Levy, Brian Griese, Louis Riddick
Monday night’s game presents an important game for the Jokers image in both conferences that may not be too convincing as Chicago and Pittsburgh struggle to score points. Unfortunately for us, the Manningcast is on hiatus this week, so we won’t see Peyton’s bewildered reactions to the inevitable mistakes from both teams.
