Week 4 NFL game schedule: Game time, live streaming, TV channel, how to watch, viewing guide, announcers

We take a look at the full Week 4 NFL schedule. We've got the full TV schedule, as well as a rooting guide.

Welcome back to Sunday football! Week 4 of the 2015 NFL season is back, following an ugly but crazy Thursday Night Football game. The Baltimore Ravens made a big comeback to beat the Pittsburgh Steelers 23-20 in overtime. The Steelers should have won the game, but Mike Tomlin seemingly couldn't get out of his own way late in the game.

We return today with 13 different games, and I have put together a viewing guide looking at our rooting interests, and providing an open thread for the early games. Last week I put together a viewing guide that mixed gambling interests and broader interests. This week, I removed my gambling interests. I'll root as needed, but for this I'll keep it more general. Don't forget that Jets-Dolphins gets going eaaaaaaaarly at 6:30 a.m. PT.

The San Francisco 49ers kick off against the Green Bay Packers at 1:25 p.m. PT. We'll have open threads and more content about that. In the meantime, this will be our game day thread for morning non-49ers action. We'll then have another thread for Sunday Night Football.

Down below is everything you need to know about how to watch the various games. Click here to see which game is broadcasted in your region. The Bay Area gets Jets-Dolphins at 6:30 a.m. on CBS, and then Raiders-Bears at 10 a.m. Giants-Bills is the early game on FOX, and then 49ers-Packers is the afternoon game. A full day of football!

Philadelphia Eagles at Washington

Start time: 10:00 AM PT
TV channel: FOX
Announcers: Dick Stockton, David Diehl

ROOTING INTEREST: Washington - I'm not normally one to root for the Fightin' Snyders, but I kind of want to see the Eagles season continue to nose-dive. I'm not entirely sure why, because I like Chip Kelly. But I like it.

New York Giants at Buffalo Bills

Start time: 10:00 AM PT

ROOTING INTEREST: Bucs - I'm down for seeing the Panthers lose that 0.

Oakland Raiders at Chicago Bears

Start time: 10:00 AM PT
TV channel: CBS
Announcers: Greg Gumbel, Trent Green

Minnesota Vikings at Denver Broncos

Start time: 1:25 PM PT
TV channel: FOX
Announcers: Kevin Burkhardy, John Lynch
