The Denver region will be treated to top games among divisional rivals across the NFL on Sunday.
The NFL games being shown in Denver will be highlighted by the Denver Broncos hosting the San Diego Chargers during the CBS late game. The Broncos lead the AFC West at 6-3 and have won four straight games behind the arm of Peyton Manning, a growing running game and a defense that's learning to just give Manning enough to work with and they'll be fine. The Chargers are second in the division at 4-5 and could use a signature win against their division rival as they look to get back to .500.
NFL on CBS Early Game: The Cleveland Browns will visit the Dallas Cowboys in a game between two teams that are struggling, the only difference is that the Cowboys weren't expected to do so. The Cowboys are 4-5 coming off a win in the ‘desperation bowl' against the Philadelphia Eagles. They'll have a chance to get back to .500 and closer to the suddenly reeling New York Giants in the NFC East. Meanwhile, the Browns are 2-7, well behind the other teams in their division. Greg Gumbel and Dan Dierdorf will be on the call.
NFL on FOX: The Green Bay Packers will visit the Detroit Lions in a battle of NFC North teams headed in opposite directions. The Packers are one of the hottest teams in the league having won their last four games after a 2-3 start. The Lions were expected to challenge for the division title but instead have been inconsistent and sit at 4-5 with their slim playoff hopes hanging in the balance. Joe Buck and Troy Aikman will bring the action.
Sunday Night Football on NBC: A clash of heated AFC North rivals will take place as the Baltimore Ravens visit the Pittsburgh Steelers. The game will look a little different than it has in the past with the Ravens' Ray Lewis still out with an injury and the chance of Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger playing slim to none due to suffering a sternoclavicular joint sprain on Monday night. Nevertheless, the rivals are again fighting for the division title as the Steelers sit at 6-3, a game behind the 7-2 Ravens. Cris Collinsworth and Al Michaels will bring the action as usual.
