Brothers and Sisters Week in the NFL

I noted earlier that this is "Brothers and Sisters" week in the NFL. Half of the NFL's 16 games are divisional games this week. I can't remember the last time we saw so many of them at once. Anyhow, here's the games in question:

Packers vs Lions
Raiders vs Chiefs
49ers vs Seahawks
Falcons vs Bucs
Chargers vs Broncos
Pats vs Jets
Steelers vs Browns
Eagles vs Cowboys

Most anticipated, Eagles vs Cowboys easily
Least anticipated, Raiders vs Chiefs, also easily

Almost said "49ers vs Seahawks," but the truth is, there are so many unknowns going into that game. We know the Raiders are going to blow chunks at Kansas City, so it's instantly unwatchable.


This is the first time in a very long time I've been this excited about both Sunday Night Football and Monday Night Football simultaneously. The NFL did a remarkable job protecting both for night time. ...and "the Browns have a must win game?" Are you kidding? It's week 2! Way too early to have any must win games.

Finally, I have this for you.

uuuuuugh! All I have to say is GO EAGLES!!!
