TEXAS, Sporting Alert – Live television channels, game times and NBC Sports Networks live online streaming of Sunday Night Football for the NFL Week 4 fixtures this week.
Defending champions and the undefeated New England Patriots (3-0) are one of the two teams on a bye in Week 4, with Tennessee Titans (1-2) being the other side with a week off.
The Week 4 schedule got underway on Thursday night with the Baltimore Ravens finally ending its three-game skid with a 23-20 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers.
There is an early kick-off to this weekend’s fixtures as well, with the New York Jets and the Miami Dolphins doing battle at Wembley Stadium in London, England. The clash between these two AFC EAST sides will get going at 8:30 a.m. CT and live on CBS.
On Sunday, six of the seven undefeated teams will be in action, with the Cincinnati Bengals, Carolina Panthers and Atlanta Falcons all kicking off at 12:00 p.m. CT.
Cam Newton and the Panthers (3-0) will try to make it 4-0 against Jameis Winston and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (1-2) who need to start getting more production from those who have been projected to be the top contributors for the season – especially on offence.
At the Georgia Dome in Atlanta, the Falcons (3-0) will match talents with Houston (1-2).
Matt Ryan has already thrown for 946 yards and five touchdowns for Atlanta and he is expected to keep his impressive form come Sunday.
The NFC SOUTH outfits will be without RB Tevin Coleman (ribs), S Ricardo Allen (knee) and TE Jacob Tamme (concussion) have all been ruled out for this contest, the club reported.
Meanwhile, running back Arian Foster is expected to make his season debut for the Texans against the Falcons, according to ESPN reports. Foster had been sidelined with a groin injury.
In what should be a very interesting battle at Paul Brown Stadium in Cincinnati, the Bengals (3-0) will play hosts to the Kansas City Chiefs (1-2), who are trying to stop a two-game skid.
Cincinnati has been impressive this season and will start as 3.5 point favourites to extend the Chiefs poor run heading into Week 4.
Kansas City went undefeated in preseason and opened the regular season with a win, but since then has been beaten by the Broncos and Packers. This game starts with an O/U of 45.
ESPN is reporting that Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck will not play against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Luck will miss his first game in his NFL career.
Interestingly the Colts started the day as 9.5 point favourites, but @LVSuperBook now moves the home side to 3.5 favourites with Matt Hasselbeck expected to be the starter at Lucas Oil Stadium.
In other NFL Week 4 games on Sunday, Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos (3-0) will seek to extend their undefeated start to the season when they come up against the Minnesota Vikings (2-1).
Minnesota dropped its first game of the season, but has won two in a row, while scoring 57 of the 60 total points for the season in two games.
Teams looking for their first win of the season are the New Orleans Saints (0-3), Detroit Lions (0-3) and Chicago Bears (0-3).
The Sunday Night Football Game selected for Week 4 is the clash at Mercedes-Benz Superdome involving the Saints and the Dallas Cowboys (2-1).
Monday Night Football battle will come from the CenturyLink Field in Seattle, where the Seahawks (1-2) will face the Lions.
