We’re almost ready to kick off Week 5 in the National Football League, ladies and gentlemen. As we know, the Minnesota Vikings won’t kick off their game until the later portion of Sunday afternoon’s slate, which means that we’ll have plenty of time to take in a lot of NFL action leading up to kickoff.
As you’ve probably guessed, I’m going to be tuning into the Red Zone Channel to track all of the action for the early slate. If you don’t have the Red Zone Channel, check out the broadcast maps from 506 Sports to see which games are being shown in your area.
The NFC North action is going to be limited today, as the Chicago Bears are on their bye week, and the other two NFC North teams will be fighting each other, as the Green Bay Packers and Detroit Lions will be doing battle at Ford Field.
The biggest game of the early slate comes to us from the AFC side, as the Jacksonville Jaguars take their outstanding defense to Arrowhead Stadium to take on the Kansas City Chiefs, the AFC’s last undefeated squad.
Here is the full list of early Week 5 action.
- Tennessee Titans at Buffalo Bills - Spero Dedes, Adam Archuleta - DirecTV Ch 705
