NFL Schedule: Week 9 Games, Where to Watch, Live Stream, TV Channel

The NFL season is edging closer to the halfway mark and neither the New England Patriots nor the San Francisco 49ers show any sign of stopping.

The reigning Super Bowl champions defeated the Cleveland Browns 27-13 at home in Week 8, as Bill Belichick became only the third coach in NFL history to register 300 career wins across the regular season and the playoffs.

With the win over the Browns, the Patriots improved to 8-0 for only the third time in franchise history after 2007 and 2015 and look a shoo-in to secure top spot in the AFC.

On Sunday, New England's defense again set the tone with three takeaways in the first period, taking the turnover differential for the season to +17—tied for the fifth-highest margin through the first game of a season since 1970.

The Patriots have the third-highest point differential at this stage of the season in the history of the NFL and look ominously unstoppable as far as the rest of the league is concerned.

New England's defense, however, will come up against one of its hardest tests of the season in Week 9, when the Patriots travel to Baltimore on Sunday Night Football.

Like New England, San Francisco is the only team still unbeaten in the NFL and, like New England, it has built its season upon a dominant defense, which ranks second in the league behind the Patriots in terms of points allowed per game.

The 49ers routed the Carolina Panthers 51-13 on Sunday, as Nick Bosa enjoyed a dominant day at the office with three sacks and a pick. The rookie defensive lineman is only the third rookie since 1982 to record at least three sacks and an interception in the same game and the second-youngest to ever do so.

With the win over Carolina, San Francisco improved to 7-0, the best start since Jerry Rice and Joe Montana led the 49ers to win all their first 10 games in 1990.

San Francisco is in full control of the NFC West but faces a short turnaround ahead of its divisional matchup against the Cardinals in Arizona on Thursday Night Football.

Elsewhere, the Green Bay Packers continued their march to the playoffs with a 31-24 over the Patrick Mahomes-less Chiefs in Kansas City.

Aaron Rodgers threw for 305 yards and three touchdowns as the Packers improved to 7-1 and 3-0 on the road after winning just one game away from Wisconsin a year ago.

The Chiefs, meanwhile, dropped to 5-3 after losing a third consecutive home game, but remain in control of the AFC West after the Oakland Raiders lost a tight game against the Texans in Houston.

The win improved Houston to 5-3 and they will look to consolidate their playoff chances when they play AFC South rivals Jacksonville Jaguars in the fourth and final London game of the season this coming Sunday.

Week 9 ends with an all-NFC East affair when the New York Giants host the Dallas Cowboys on Monday Night Football in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

The Giants lost their fourth game in a row with a 31-26 defeat on the road against the Lions and are now 2-6, while the Cowboys return from their bye at 4-3.

Here's all you need to know about Week 9.
