Cincinnati Bengals (0-0) at Cleveland Browns (0-0) (Red): Ian Eagle, Charles Davis
Tampa Bay Buccaneers (0-0) at Minnesota Vikings (0-0) (Blue): Andrew Catalon, Tiki Barber, Matt Ryan
Houston Texans (0-0) at Baltimore Ravens (0-0) (Green): Spero Dedes, Adam Archuleta
Tennessee Titans (0-0) at New Orleans Saints (0-0) (Yellow): Chris Lewis, Jason McCourty, Ross Tucker

CBS' early window is headlined by the battle of Ohio as the Bengals will look to avoid losing to the Browns for the fifth time in their past six meetings. That game will get the majority of CBS' distribution, followed by the first post-Tom Brady game for Tampa Bay in Minnesota.

FOX (Early Window)

San Francisco 49ers (0-0) at Pittsburgh Steelers (0-0) (Red): Joe Davis, Darryl Johnston
Arizona Cardinals (0-0) at Washington Commanders (0-0) (Blue): Adam Amin, Mark Schlereth
Jacksonville Jaguars (0-0) at Indianapolis Colts (0-0) (Green): Kenny Albert, Jonathan Vilma
Carolina Panthers (0-0) at Atlanta Falcons (0-0) (Yellow): Chris Myers, Robert Smith

The best game in the entire early window is 49ers-Steelers and FOX will wisely send it to most of the country. The rest of the action is regional, including No. 1 pick Bryce Young's NFL debut for the Panthers in Atlanta.

CBS (Late Window)

Philadelphia Eagles (0-0) at New England Patriots (0-0) (Red): Jim Nantz, Tony Romo
Miami Dolphins (0-0) at Los Angeles Chargers (0-0) (Blue): Kevin Harlan, Trent Green
Las Vegas Raiders (0-0) at Denver Broncos (0-0) (Green): Tom McCarthy, James Lofton, Jay Feely

The reigning NFC champs highlight CBS' late window as the Eagles head to Foxboro to take on the Patriots in a game that will largely take up the Eastern half of the country while Broncos-Raiders goes to the majority of the west. The best game of the trio is actually Dolphins-Chargers but it is largely confined to local markets.

Green Bay Packers (0-0) at Chicago Bears (0-0) (Red): Kevin Burkhardt, Greg Olsen
Los Angeles Rams (0-0) at Seattle Seahawks (0-0) (Blue): Kevin Kugler, Mark Sanchez

America's Game Of The Week will see Jordan Love make his debut as the Packers' new starting quarterback against Justin Fields and the arch-rival Bears. The other game here will go primarily to the West Coast as the Rams look to bounce back from a down year against the Seahawks.

Sunday Night Football (NBC)

Dallas Cowboys (0-0) at New York Giants (0-0): Mike Tirico, Cris Collinsworth

NBC's second game of the week comes in the traditional Sunday night slot as the Cowboys head to East Rutherford to take on the Giants in a game the NFL loves to schedule for Week 1. Dallas swept both meetings against New York last season.

Monday, Sept. 11

Monday Night Football (ESPN/ABC)

Buffalo Bills (0-0) at New York Jets (0-0): Joe Buck, Troy Aikman

Aaron Rodgers' Jets debut is a huge spot for New York as they look to make a statement against the reigning AFC champs. The game will be simulcast on ABC and the Manningcast is also in play as Peyton and Eli kick off their third season as alternative broadcasters on ESPN2.
