According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Ray Rice is expected to play today for the Ravens, who are 3-point favorites versus the Bills in Buffalo. Rice is currently dealing with a hip injury that kept him out last week versus the Texans but unless he suffers a setback in pre-game warmups, he'll be ready to go for Baltimore.

Meanwhile, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting that the Bucs may let receiver Vincent Jackson rest through the team's Week 5 bye, which means he's in danger of missing today's game versus the Cardinals. With a rookie in Mike Glennon making his first career start for the benched Josh Freeman, this is horrible news. While Glennon can lean on running back Doug Martin, not having his No. 1 target in Jackson could keep an already punchless Tampa Bay offense grounded once again.

In Oakland Matt Flynn is expected to start for the concussed Terrelle Pryor, according to FOX Sports' Jay Glazer. Flynn played in just three games last year for the Seahawks, completing 5-of-9 passes for 68 yards. While he's a downgrade from the mobile Pryor, the Redskins' defense has been horrendous this season so maybe Flynn can be effective. Washington is currently a 3-point road favorite in Oakland at 4:25PM ET today.

Finally, Schefter also reports that both Rob Gronkowski and Danny Amendola have been ruled out for tonight's game versus the Falcons. Both were officially listed as questionable on the injury report but neither player traveled to Atlanta and will miss at least another week. According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Falcons are currently 1-point favorites versus the Patriots tonight on Sunday Night Football.
