The Saints have motivation on their side, home field advantage, and have had a bye week to rest up. The Chargers on the other hand fly into New Orleans with a good record over bad opponents.

Early

Cleveland Browns (0-4) @ New York Giants (2-2) - CBS

The Browns are still looking for their first win, and it's unlikely they'll get it on the road in the Big Apple. With a nine game road losing streak and a ten point underdog, it's unlikely the Browns are going to reverse trends today. The reigning Super Bowl champions haven't had the best start to the season either, losing to two division rivals. Still, it could be a close one, the Browns' touchdown differential is only -25 over the four loses.

Philadelphia Eagles (3-1) @ Pittsburg Steelers (1-2) - FOX

NFC stadiums on CBS? AFC stadium on FOX? It's a topsy turvy day that will see the battle for Pennsylvania played out in the other early game. Ben Roethlisberger has the second best passer rating in the NFL, and the Steelers are set to get back two key defenders this week including Troy Palomalu. Only a field goal favorite, the Eagles' good fortune to begin the year could finally run out in Pittsburgh.

Late

Denver Broncos (2-2) @ New England Patriots (2-2) - CBS

Phil Simms and Jim Nantz will be on the call for this one, but this Tom Brady vs. Peyton Manning matchup likely won't have the same luster as the ones of old. Manning hasn't been bad since returning from injury, but he hasn't been the world beater he once was. Tom Brady continues to be himself, but neither of these teams has wowed anyone this year so far. Still, this is their chance on national TV.

Sunday Night Football

San Diego Chargers (3-1) @ New Orleans Saints (0-4) - NBC

The Saints have been uncharacteristically awful, going winless through their first four games. Not that Drew Brees has fallen off any, he's still throwing 450 yard games they're just losing efforts now. The Saints have motivation on their side, home field advantage, and have had a bye week to rest up. The Chargers on the other hand fly into New Orleans with a good record over bad opponents. They were blown out at home by the only good team they've faced, the Atlanta Falcons. The Saints should look to get their first win of the year tonight.
