Week 14 is underway with six games getting underway in the 4:05/4:25 p.m. time slot. The NFC East could be tightening up following the Giants soon-to-be loss to the Cardinals. The AFC will be a bit more on display later today, with Colts-Raiders a huge game, and then Steelers and Bills squaring off on Sunday Night Football.

We’ll be updating the standings throughout the rest of this afternoon, Sunday Night Football, and Monday Night Football.
