Even though ST is busy recovering, we’ll have an open NFL thread. Since my team, the Green Bay Packers, is off this weekend, I’ll try to focus my attention on the house team as the Carolina Panthers host the Washington Redskins. It won’t be easy because my local Fox affiliate will be carrying the team that broke my heart on Monday, the Minnesota Vikings.
The good news is the Redskins are not nearly as good as their 2-2 (corrected) record. They not only lost to the lowly Detroit Lions, they barely beat the equally-lowly St. Louis Rams and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The ‘Cats will speed ST’s recovery along by getting their first win of the season.
Game time is 1 pm Eastern, and will be on Fox.
Other games worth keeping an eye on this week:
– Cincinnati (3-1) at Baltimore (3-1) – 1 pm Eastern
– Atlanta (2-1) at San Francisco (3-1) – 4:05 pm Eastern
– New England (3-1) at Denver (4-0) – 4:15 pm Eastern
Every other game this week features at least one team with at least 2 losses, so it’s real slim pickings.
Revisions/extensions (7:13 pm Eastern, I hope, 10/11/2009) - Sorry about nodding off at halftime, but I didn’t have any good games to watch here in Wisconsin (the Vikings/Rams and Steelers/Lions). The Panthers reeled off an unanswered 18 points to get their first win 20-17.
Also, I corrected the Redskins’ record (dunno how I thought they had a bye last week).
