NFL Week 2 TV schedule and kick off times

The Eagles don't play until Monday, so there's plenty of viewing options.

Week 1 in the NFL is over, we're on to Week 2. There are 14 games on Sunday and none of them feature the Eagles, but that doesn't mean there aren't any games worth watching.

Game Time TV
Saints at Giants 1:00 PM FOX
Chiefs and Texans 1:00 PM CBS
Bengals at Steelers 1:00 PM CBS
Cowboys at Redskins 1:00 PM FOX
Dolphins at Patriots 1:00 PM CBS
Titans at Lions 1:00 PM CBS
Ravens at Browns 1:00 PM CBS
49ers at Panthers 1:00 PM FOX
Buccaneers at Cardinals 4:05 PM FOX
Seahawks at Rams 4:05 PM FOX
Colts at Broncos 4:25 PM CBS
Jaguars at Chargers 4:25 PM CBS
Falcons at Raiders 4:25 PM CBS
Packers at Vikings 8:30 PM NBC

The two best games on paper look to be the Chiefs at the Texans and the Bengals at the Steelers. Four playoff teams from last year who all won last week. The Bengals and Steelers likely have some bad blood from their playoff game last year, while the Chiefs and Texans played each other in Week 1 of last season, with Houston winning 27-0.

Eagles related items

The aforementioned Steelers are the Eagles next opponents, and the Bengals are probably the team you want them to be playing the week before, especially since the Eagles will be on short rest. Bengals-Steelers games are extremely physical affairs that have a lingering effect for the Steelers. In 2015 these teams faced each other three times, and in every case the Steelers game the following week was a one score game: a 7 point win and a 7 point loss to the Broncos and a 3 point win against the Raiders. 2014 was worse: a 7 point win against the imploding Falcons and then a loss to the Ravens in the playoffs. Next week might only be Week 3 but the Steelers probably won't be at 100% when they travel to Philly.

In the NFC East, the Redskins host the Cowboys, so one of those teams is going to improve to 1-1. Both teams are looking to rebound from a terrible start. Will Dez Bryant, who was held to just one catch for eight yards vs the Giants, roast Bashaud Breeland like Antonio Brown? Or will Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliot struggle again? Will Kirk Cousins throw a touchdown against a secondary that gave up three TDs to the Giants? Neither team looked good last week, so this should be a sloppy game.

Speaking of sloppy games, the Giants host the Saints. Last year in New Orleans Eli Manning threw 6 touchdowns and the Giants still lost, 52-49. With the Saints losing 35-34 on Sunday, while the Giants gave up 19 to a team with poor QB play, so this too should be a shootout. Could we see 100 total points again?

Jared Goff Watch

Goff didn't play as the Rams were embarrassed on national TV 28-0, unable to move the ball in any fashion. He once again won't start as Jeff Fisher is completely unable to swallow his pride. The Eagles early advantage looks even better now.

Vikings 1st Round Pick Watch

As expected, the Vikings defeated the Titans, but it wasn't pretty. This week Sam Bradford is expected to start against the Packers. 1-1 seems in the cards, which would be just fine for the Eagles.
