Cowboys & Indians battle it out, as the Pack go for 10 in a row [NFL Sunday Open Game Thread]
Let's take a look at today's lineup;
Cowboys @ Redskins - one of the most passionate rivalries in all of the NFL, each team brings it. Whose "it" prevails today? My take: the Redskins might surprise us against the team they hate the most.
Bills @ Dolphins - another rivalry game...a team that relies so heavily on their kicker had to yank Shayne Graham out of FA this week.
Bucs @ Packers - The Pack is playing insanely, and Aaron Rodgers seems to be a robot. It seems most times when an undefeated team finally gets beat, it's by a team nobody would have expected. Will that happen today? I don't think so.
Jaguars @ Browns - Ish.
Bengals @ Ravens - With Baltimore coming off an embarrassing loss to the Seahawks last week, expect them to come out swinging against the cats. Unfortunately they'll have to do it without Ray Lewis.
Panthers @ Lions - Stafford is struggling, and has already thrown 2 int's in this game before the 2nd quarter. Fortunately for the Lions, their defense is strong, and Carolina's offense isn't terrific. I think they pull it off.
Raiders @ Vikings - Ponder's turning some heads, but Oakland has a stellar running game and has been pulling off some great wins and Vikings defense is Swiss cheese.. My bet is on the Raiders today.
Cards @ Niners - San Francisco is legit. Their defense is strong and Alex Smith doesn't seem have any plans to come back down to Earth any time soon. While I'd like Arizona to pull off the upset today, I don't see it happening.
Chargers @ Bears - The Bears are hot, and Philip Rivers is cold...and they're in Chicago. This could be an ugly game.
Titans @ Falcons - Two bipolar teams with the same exact records (5-4, 2-2 home/away). Which team will bring their game, and which team will leave theirs at home? This might be a fun game to watch whether you have a vested interest in either team or not.
Seahawks @ Rams - The two worst teams in the worst division in the NFL...If this blog was written by our regular NFL Game Thread blogger I have a sneaking suspicion this would be the game dubbed "Woof". Not today though; the author of this blog is a Seahawks fan.
Prime Time Game:
Eagles @ Giants - What is it about the NFC East that breeds insane rivalries? Vick is out for the Eagles, and Bradshaw's out for the Giants. This game might be good enough that I can tolerate Chris Collinsworth. And I would say the Eagles are due for a good win.
