After his stellar performance against the Los Angeles Rams on Monday night, Lamar Jackson cemented his area as the season’s must-see gamer, the razzle-dazzle quarterback made for prime-time TV.

But the Baltimore Ravens’ substantial house game Sunday versus the San Francisco 49 ers, a game lots of view as a Super Bowl LIV preview, isn’t on nationwide TV or in prime-time this week. Instead, the NFL flexed the Oakland-Kansas City video game into the late-afternoon slot, with the New England Patriots and Houston Texans meeting on Sunday night.

[Ravens-49ers could be a Super Bowl preview. Their last Super Bowl meeting was unforgettable.]

That implies the game between the Niners and Jackson’s Ravens– a game that is the first match of teams each coming off wins by at least 28 points over opponents with winning records, according to the Elias Sports Bureau– goes off at 1 p.m.

Perpetuity Eastern.

The early shift

Titans (6-5) at Colts (6-5), 1, CBS

These AFC South rivals have taken various routes to identical records. Since benching Marcus Mariota in favor of Ryan Tannehill, the Titans have won 4 of 5, while Tannehill is 4th in the NFL with a 114.9 passer rating given that ending up being the starter. The Colts are moving, losing three of their last four after conquering the abrupt retirement of Andrew Luck with a strong 5-2 start.

Jets (4-7) at Bengals (0-11), 1, CBS

The Jets have actually won 3 in a row and no one is discussing Sam Darnold seeing ghosts. In the three video games since he mentioned those apparitions while throwing four interceptions against the Patriots, he has actually posted a 117.2 passer score. Now, if Gang Green can win this video game and the Week 14 match with the Dolphins, they ‘d be 6-7, on the cusp of.500 Who’ da thunk it?

Redskins (2-9) at Panthers (5-6), 1, CBS

Dwayne Haskins found out the tough way that an NFL video game lasts 60 minutes, picking to pose for a sideline selfie instead of be readily available for the final play in Washington’s triumph over Detroit. The Panthers’ defense suffered a blow when it lost nose deal with Dontari Poe to a torn quadriceps versus New Orleans. Quarterback Kyle Allen has actually been obstructed nine times in his last 5 video games after tossing zero in his very first five starts.

49 ers (10 -1) at Ravens (9-2), 1, Fox

Could this be a preview of Super Bowl LIV? Either way, it’s great to be the Ravens, with a nasty defense and an AFC playoff photo that grew murky last weekend for groups clustered in the middle of the pack. How good is the San Francisco defense that Jackson will deal with? Green Bay and Aaron Rodgers (in the least efficient game of his career) were 1 for 15 on third-down conversions in last Sunday’s blowout loss The Ravens must get used to the loss of center Matt Skura, a big factor for the offensive line’s success, for the remainder of the season with a knee injury. Skura helped Jackson become the very first player in NFL history with at least 3,000 passing yards and 1,500 hurrying yards over his first 2 seasons.

Buccaneers (4-7) at Jaguars (4-7), 1, Fox

Can Tampa Bay call Vita Vea’s number once again? Please? The protective lineman caught a 1-yard goal pass versus Atlanta, ending up being, at 347 pounds, the heaviest gamer to capture a TD pass, according to Pro Football Recommendation He’s just a couple of carbohydrates weightier than Jonathan Ogden (345) and, since you’re questioning, William Perry, who weighed335 “I scored?” Vea laughed afterward. “I believed it was a dream.”

Browns (5-6) at Steelers (6-5), 1, CBS

No Myles Garrett, no Maurkice Pouncey and a lot of people whose wallets are much lighter will meet up again, a little more than two weeks given that a battle marred the end of their game in Cleveland and prompted Browns fan to take whacks at a Mason Rudolph piñata Rudolph, meantime, has actually been benched in favor of duck-calling champ Devlin Hodges, who will make the start in this rematch. The Browns have actually won 3 in a row and, like the Steelers, have flickering playoff hopes.

Packers (8-3) at Giants (2-9), 1, Fox

New York has actually lost seven in a row, triggering buzz about whether the normally patient John Mara might provide Pat Shurmur the heave-ho in favor of Jason Garrett, whose contract is up at the end of a season in which his Cowboys are underwhelming The stretch run sets up nicely for the Packers, who over the last month have gone back to troublesome form, looking more like Mike McCarthy’s team than Matt LaFleur’s, with little imagination or pace.

Eagles (5-6) at Dolphins (2-9), 1, Fox

The NFC East is there for the taking. The Eagles have winnable games in 4 of the next 5 weeks, facing the Dolphins in Miami, the Giants in your home, the Redskins in Washington, the Giants once again in New Jersey and the Cowboys in Philadelphia. Going 5-0 isn’t beyond the world of possibility, however Carson Wentz has to begin playing much better. The Dolphins have quit 78 points the last 2 video games.

Late video games

Rams (6-5) at Cardinals (3-7-1), 4: 05, Fox

The Rams are coming off the worst home loss at the Coliseum in group history, a game in which Eric Weddle confessed: “We got our faces removed” by the Ravens and Jackson. It’s vital for Jared Goff to have an excellent video game and for the defense to shake off the 45 -6 thrashing from Monday night if they are to keep their dim playoff hopes alive. Against this defense, rookie Kyler Murray and first-year Coach Kliff Kingsbury ought to be able to have some success, although Murray is questionable with a hamstring concern

Chargers (4-7) at Broncos (3-8), 4: 25, CBS

What typically is a cracking AFC West competition establishes as a huge frustration this year. Philip Rivers has actually been intercepted seven times in the last two games and the Broncos were doomed by their 0-4 start.

Raiders (6-5) at Chiefs (7-4), 4: 25, CBS

The Raiders utterly and totally laid an egg in their loss to the New york city Jets or, as Derek Carr put it, “we got our face started a little bit.” As if that weren’t bad enough, they now must play the Chiefs in a big AFC West game in Kansas City.

The night video game

Patriots (10 -1) at Texans (7-4), 8: 20, NBC

Has a team been luckier when it pertains to the schedule than the Patriots, who sit atop a messy AFC? Nobody, especially Tom Brady, is happy with how the team has actually gotten to 10 -1, but the Patriot Way is all about winning at all expenses, even if that implies winning awful. Don’t be amazed if Houston starts slow. It has actually scored all of 23 points in the first quarter; just the Redskins have scored less (20). The Texans are dealing with a polar-opposite team: The Patriots have scored 94 points in the first quarter, second only to Baltimore, however they’re combating an influenza bug this week and lost kicker Nick Folk to an appendectomy. He’ll be replaced by Kai Forbath.
