Sunday NFL Early Games Open Thread

New, comments

Thanks to the home game, the 49ers will not be on until 1:15pm pacific time.  In the meantime, we've got a host of intriguing match-ups for you to enjoy.  If you don't have the NFL Red Zone channel to enjoy the games, feel free to check out the discussion in here.  Here are a few of the better match-ups of the day.

Cardinals-Bears
The biggest for 49ers fans is the NFC West leading Arizona Cardinals traveling to Soldier Field to take on the wildly inconsistent Chicago Bears.  Both teams are 4-3, but Chicago gets the home field edge.  The Bears have struggled on the road, but are fairly solid at home, which could lead to a tough game for the Cardinals.  Of course, nobody really knows what Cardinals team will show up given their inconsistencies.

Ravens-Bengals
This game has huge AFC North implications.  A Bengals win would secure a season sweep of the Ravens and put the Bengals further in the driver's seat for a playoff spot.  A Ravens win leaves the AFC North further muddled.

Texans-Colts
The Texans are flying high on a 3-game winning streak, while the Colts are coming off a tough win over our 49ers.  The Texans have been looking to turn the corner from a .500 team and a win at Indianapolis would give them a whole lot of credibility.

We'll be opening up our 49ers-Titans thread at 12:30, but feel free to enjoy the morning games in the meantime.
