NFL: JAN 20 NFC Championship Game - Rams at Saints Photo by Jordon Kelly/Icon Sportswire via Getty Images

Week 2 of the 2019 NFL season continues with just three late afternoon games.

The late afternoon headliner is undoubtedly the game featuring the New Orleans Saints and the Los Angeles Rams. This is a rematch of the infamous 2018-19 NFC Championship game in which the Saints were robbed on a non-call of a late obvious pass interference penalty which would likely have changed the outcome of the game. The Saints will be looking for revenge, and these two teams shape up to be two of the best teams in the NFL this year, making this game potentially one of the best matchups of the 2019-2020 NFL season. For a football aficionado this is must watch TV.

In the other two late afternoon games the Kansas City Chiefs renew an ancient AFC West rivalry with the Oakland Raiders, a heated rivalry dating back to AFL days; and the Chicago Bears hope to avoid the dreaded 0-2 start to an NFL season when they travel to Denver to take on the Broncos in one of the league’s tougher road venues.

Enjoy the games everybody. Use this thread to comment on whichever late afternoon games catch your fancy.
