While there are some moving parts injury-wise that could affect decision-making with the team's inactive list, WR Kenny Britt is part of the game-plan today. Depending on the injury situation, it would not be a surprise if Britt makes his Patriots debut today.

I sat down with Marvin Lewis in August for an extended interview. Over the course of an hour, we discussed multiple things, but his future was one of them. His answer was interesting at the time: "Sometimes you don't want to start that over again, but sometimes you need to. And I'm prepared to do that. It doesn't affect me one way or another."

Jamaal Williams was No. 3 on the running back depth chart the last time Aaron Rodgers played. Today he's the starter as Rodgers returns from his broken collarbone.

Marvin Lewis was asked about his mindset on Friday regarding his future. He said "My future is Sunday, just win the game." He said he and Bengals Mike Brown talk every day, but also said they haven't discussed his future, adding that Brown's brother Pete Brown died this week so Brown has been preoccupied anyway. "We talk every morning, but he's had a busy week unfortunately," Lewis said. When pressed to talk about his future, he said: "I don't have to tell anybody anything right now, I'm paid to do a job and that's every day."

In a small session with reporters on Friday, Marvin Lewis was asked if there's a way to provide ease to his staff about the future with the contract situations. He said "There's no ease that way. They're good coaches. They'll be fine."

At least one member of Marvin Lewis' staff was taken by surprise when hearing the report this morning. Lewis has not addressed the staff as a whole about his plans after this season. However, it has been the elephant in the room because a number of the assistants' contracts are up after this season.

From ESPN Analytics Seth Walder: if the Bills win Sunday against Miami, ceteris paribus, their playoff odds will increase from 11.6% to 20.3%. If they lose, their playoff odds will decrease to 1.3%. The Bills currently have the eighth-longest playoff odds in the AFC, according to ESPN's Football Power Index.

The Saints will be a huge challenge for the Jets' defense, especially MLB Demario Davis. The Saints use about 15 different personnel groupings, according to DC Kacy Rodgers. The average team, he said, uses three or four. It'll be up to Davis to direct traffic, making sure the Jets have the right personnel on the field.

It'll be interesting to see how many fans attend the Redskins-Cardinals game. It's a nice day with temperatures in the upper-40s but there's nothing tangible on the line for Washington. The parking lots typically are fuller around 10 a.m. than they were this morning.

This happens before every game: a Packers equipment staffer walks around the entire Field making sure the QB helmet speaker communication doesn't have any dead spots.

It's quiet now in the Superdome, but the noise will be ear-splitting later for the Jets' offense. They practiced all week with crowd noise, with some players saying it was louder than they've ever heard. It'll be tough on QB Bryce Petty, who makes first start of 2017.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh is 17-2 in his career against the Browns. The only coach with a better win percentage against a single opponent in the Super Bowl era (minimum 15 games played) was Weeb Ewbank, who went 14-1-1 against the Patriots.
