The NFL is back in London today! Wake up with football this morning, as the New York Jets and Atlanta Falcons kick off from the capital of the UK in the first of a handful of international games on the league’s schedule this season.

That matchup is hardly a thrilling one, to be sure. The two teams hold a combined 2-6 record entering this week, and they both have particular weaknesses. The Jets are last in the NFL in points scored, while the Falcons have given up more points than any other team through four games. But it’s still morning football, so fire up the TVs and enjoy the game alongside the rest of your Sunday morning routine.

Today, the Packers also get their first early kickoff of the season as they visit the Cincinnati Bengals. That game will be one of the contests in wider distribution across the country in the early time slot before the biggest games of the day take over — Bills vs. Chiefs will dominate the late afternoon time while Sunday Night Football gets an NFC East rivalry between the New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys.

So keep it here throughout the games today and discuss in the comments.
