NFL Early Games 'Open Thread'

Enjoy the Sunday NFL games leading up to the Ravens-Steelers Sunday Night Football battle.

David Richard-US PRESSWIRE

Since the Baltimore Ravens do not play until this evening on Sunday Night Football at the Pittsburgh Steelers, enjoy the early games during the day and post your thoughts on how they might affect the Ravens in the hunt for the playoffs.

There are eight 1pm games, including the other two teams in the AFC North as well as the Houston Texans (8-1), who are leading the race for the top seed and home field advantage throughout the playoffs. There are also a couple of other interesting games on the early schedule.

Get ready for tonight's blockbuster by getting your pre-game excitement from the other games today. The three later 4pm games include two of them that could definitely affect the Ravens, as the Denver Broncos (6-3) play the San Diego Chargers and the New England Patriots (6-3) host the Indianapolis Colts (6-3). The Ravens currently hold the #2 seed that gets a first-round bye, but only by a game over the 6-3 teams.
