Let's take a look at two of the best games to watch this week:

This divisional matchup should be one of the best games of the week. The AFC West is being called the toughest in the league and these divisional meetings could be crucial for playoff spots and seedings as we get to the end of the regular season.
Quarterback Derek Carr believes that they are a team worth talking about.
On the other side, quarterback Justin Herbert has yet to have all the pieces to advance to the playoffs, but this could be his year. He's proven that he has the skills to be a top quarterback in this league and it feels like his time to make the postseason.
Sunday, Sept. 11, 1 p.m. ET

This game may not have the star power of the other two above and both teams are far from a shoe-in for the playoffs, but this game will still provide a lot of entertainment.
Both teams had quarterback questions heading into the season, with Browns Deshaun Watson suspended 11 games for violating the league's personal conduct policy and the Panthers holding a competition between newest addition Baker Mayfield and Sam Darnold.
With Watson sidelined, Jacoby Brissett will be leading the offense and Mayfield won the starting job over in North Carolina, as expected.
Mayfield will meet his own team for a revenge game in his new home of Bank of America Stadium.
