NFL Week 5/Vikings Bye Week Open Thread

As we know, the Minnesota Vikings are not a part of the National Football League's schedule for Week 5, as they're on their bye week along with the Miami Dolphins, New York Jets, and Carolina Panthers. However, that doesn't mean that National Football League action ceases just because the Vikings aren't out there, and that can only mean one thing for those of us that are fortunate enough to have it.

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, it's going to be a RED ZONE SUNDAY in households across the land for this week's NFL action.

I've professed my love for the Red Zone Channel numerous times in this space in the past, so I won't rehash it again. But that's how I'm going to be spending my NFL Sunday for this week.

We're about half an hour away from kickoff for the early games, so here's a look at today's NFL slate. If you don't have the Red Zone Channel, you can take a look at The 506 to see which games are being broadcast in your area. (Oh, and don't promote illegal streams or illegal streaming sites.)
