The NFL regular season is nearly half-over, and Week 8 features several exciting matchups. This weekend, Tom Brady and the Patriots will face the Chargers, who are gaining steam in the AFC West, at Gillette Stadium.
Some of the best early Sunday matchups include Raiders-Bills; Falcons-Jets; and Panthers-Buccaneers, in which Cam Newton and Carolina will face another strong young quarterback in Tampa Bay's Jameis Winston. The Week 8 slate has seven 1 p.m. ET games and just two late-afternoon games.
The prime-time slate looks great. Dolphins-Ravens, an important AFC battle, will kick off the Week 8 schedule on Thursday. Top-flight quarterbacks Ben Roethlisberger and Matthew Stafford will square off Sunday night as the Steelers take on the Lions. An important AFC West matchup, Broncos-Chiefs, is set for Monday night.
