Sunday NFL Open Thread

I am “gone fishing” today, so this will be the only open thread to discuss Sunday’s NFL action.

NFL: Carolina Panthers at Denver Broncos Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

The Denver Broncos beat the Carolina Panthers on Thursday Night Football, so I’m taking the day off to take the family to visit other family for a day of pool swimming and beer drinking. It’s nice to relax on a Sunday in the Fall.

Early Games

The games we care about there would be Brock Osweiler and the Texans. I am curious to see how he does as the franchise guy down in Houston. Other than that, we obviously want to pay attention to the AFC West teams, but also the Bengals and Jets game as those are both playoff caliber AFC teams.

Late Games

I am shocked the Giants and Cowboys didn’t get a primetime slot. Perhaps that east coast bias doesn’t exist after all. Do we care about any of these games? I kind of don’t.

Sunday Night Football

Nothing would bring me more joy than seeing the Patriots get curb stomped on opening day. Please let this happen, oh football gods.

The best part of today is that the Broncos are already 1-0!
