Sunday Football Open Thread

Well, it’ll be a relaxing day for Panthers fans because the team has a bye this week and therefore can’t embarrass themselves on a football Sunday … or so we hope.

I won the office pool last week! And am hoping to make it two in a row, something I’ve never done.  Here are my picks:

Pitt (L)
Atl
Cin
Mia
NYJ
Phil
Balt
Tampa
NE
AZ
SF
Minn
GB
Den (38 points)

What sayeth you?

BTW, here’s an update on Panthers player Greg Olsen, his wife, and one of their newborn twins who was born earlier this week with a heart defect (which they knew about during the pregnancy):

Dr. Benjamin B. Peeler, Chief of Pediatric and Adult Congenital Cardiothoracic Surgery at Levine Children’s Hospital on Greg Olsen’s son, TJ:

“TJ underwent surgery Thursday and did very well. He is a strong baby. His postoperative course thus far has been very smooth; however, this is a high risk condition as well as a high-risk surgical procedure. The postoperative course can be unpredictable and complicated. Our team continues to care for TJ very closely in the cardiac intensive care unit. We are very hopeful that TJ’s recovery will continue on the same smooth course. The average time in the hospital after the Norwood procedure is about 40 days.”

Please continue to keep them in your thoughts and prayers.
