It’s time to starting to look ahead to the games of Week Four and Pro Football Talk on NBC Sports Network will get the help of two current NFL players in that pursuit on Thursday.

Giants wide receiver Ramses Barden had himself a coming out party in Week Three when he lit up the Panthers for nine catches and 138 yards in a 36-7 win. Erik Kuselias will talk to him about that performance, how he sees his role developing in the weeks to come and what he thinks about the Giants’ chances at a repeat title this season. Kuselias will also speak to Bengals running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis. The Law Firm has run for 204 yards and two touchdowns in his first three games as a Bengal and he’ll tell us how the transition to a new team’s been going.

Pete Najarian and Amani Toomer will also hold “Players Only” meetings about some of this weekend’s biggest matchups and NBC officiating Jim Daopoulos will also be on board for a little more discussion of the end of the officials lockout. And, as always, Kuselias and Mike Florio will answer Twitter questions from whoever’s cared enough to send them in.

It all gets underway at 5 p.m. ET on NBC Sports Network.
