NFL Week 11 Early Games Open Thread

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

Once again, we're going to have to wait to watch Minnesota Vikings' football, as their game against the Green Bay Packers at TCF Bank Stadium will not kick off until 3:25 PM Central time.

However, that doesn't mean that the NFL is going to be asleep in the meantime, as there are plenty of early games that will be going on. Specifically, there are eight games on the early slate for the NFL. If you want to see what games are showing in your area, you can check out the maps from the good folks at 506 Sports. (Or, if you're like me, you can just point to the Red Zone Channel and relax for a while.) Here are all the games that will kick off at noon Central time.

Early Games on CBS

Denver Broncos at Chicago Bears - Ian Eagle, Dan Fouts
Indianapolis Colts at Atlanta Falcons - Greg Gumbel, Trent Green
New York Jets at Houston Texans - Kevin Harlan, Rich Gannon
Oakland Raiders at Detroit Lions - Andrew Catalon, Steve Tasker

Early Games on FOX

Dallas Cowboys at Miami Dolphins - Kevin Burkhardt, John Lynch
Washington Redskins at Carolina Panthers - Thom Brennaman, Charles Davis
Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Philadelphia Eagles - Dick Stockton, David Diehl
St. Louis Rams at Baltimore Ravens - Kenny Albert, Daryl Johnston

The other two late games for this afternoon are the Seattle Seahawks hosting the San Francisco 49ers on FOX (Chris Myers, Ronde Barber) and the San Diego Chargers hosting the Kansas City Chiefs on CBS (Spero Dedes, Solomon Wilcots).

The Sunday Night Football contest on NBC will see the Cincinnati Bengals traveling out west to take on the Arizona Cardinals, while Monday night football will showcase the Buffalo Bills taking on the New England Patriots in Foxboro.

So, there you have the early games, ladies and gentlemen! We'll have the inactive lists for our games up at around 2 PM Central time, and the open thread for the first quarter of Packers/Vikings will pop up an hour before kickoff, at around 2:25 PM Central time.

Enjoy the early NFL games for Week 11, folks!
