1:00pm FOX Arizona (4-7) at Jets (4-7)Broadcast team: Thom Brennaman, Brian Billick, Laura Okmin (field reporter)
The Cardinals take their dysfunctional offense and seven-game losing streak to MetLife Stadium to face the sinking Jets, who will be without their most fervent and visible fan (Fireman Ed) for the first time in 30 years. The place will be a ghost town today. Tickets can be had on StubHub for as low as $20.

ESPN's Prim Siripipat and Cris Carter break down the Bengals' 31-13 win over the Giants.
Only two NFC East games this weekend, since the Redskins are on the bye week. Here are the other two games:
Giants at Bengals: FOX 1pm, Thom Brennaman, Brian Billick and Laura Omkin: How is this game getting more national attention than Falcons-Saints? I get that the Giants play in an enormous market, but isn?t Falcons-Saints way more compelling? Anyway, whatever. Good for the Giants fans around the country. This is one of those games, where if the Giants win, their fans get to kick back, relax, and laugh at the loser of the 4pm Cowboys-Eagles game. However, if the Giants lose, does a little tinge of worry begin to creep in about whoever wins the 4 o?clocker?

Falcons at Eagles:?FOX, 1pm, Dick Stockton and John Lynch: An undefeated team headed to Philly in Week 8? ?That should be getting all kinds of TV attention, right? ?Nope. ?Along with Seattle-Detroit, it?s the least televised game on FOX?s lineup this weekend. ?That?s how much the rest of the country cares about Michael Vick these days.
Redskins at Steelers:?FOX, 1pm, Sam Rosen and Brian Billick: The new hot ticket in town of course is RG3. ?The Skins and Steelers have a combined record of 6-7. ?And yet, they?ll be getting the most TV love this weekend. ?And I really can?t blame FOX at all for that decision.
