Open Thread: Early Games: December 30, 2012

USA TODAY Sports

7 out of the 9 early games are actually meaningful in some way. Watch the games and chat along!

- New York Jets at Buffalo Bills (Chan Gailey or Rex Ryan might get fired after the game, so the result might matter)

-Carolina Panthers at New Orleans Saints (A win probably save's Ron Rivera's job, while the Saints are just trying to finish 8-8)

-Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Atlanta Falcons (Atlanta trying to make sure they get a bye week)

-Chicago Bears at Detroit Lions (Bears need a win if they even want a chance at squeaking into the playoffs)

-Philadelphia Eagles at New York Giants (Giants are long-shots to make it in, but they'll have to start by beating the Eagles)

-Jacksonville Jaguars at Tennessee Titans

-Houston Texans at Indianapolis Colts (Texans trying to hold on to a top 2 seed for that playoff bye week)

-Cleveland Browns at Pittsburgh Steelers

-Baltimore Ravens at Cincinnati Bengals (An important division matchup that we may see again in the playoffs)
