  1. Some good games here. Feels like some of the prestige is coming back to MNF like it used to be.

    Chi @ NE – Justin Fields vs Mac Jones. I like both QB’s and looking forward to that matchup.

  2. I see now the schedule I was looking at on the Pats site was not yet 100% complete/accurate. The Bears are on MNF, and the Week 14 game is vs Az. Raiders are a Sunday night, and the Bye is in week 10. 5 Prime Time games. 1 MNF, 2 Sunday Nite, and 2 Thursday Nite. 11-6, due to tough late season games. Swipe one of those games and it’s 12-5. If they don’t swipe one, that final game vs Buffalo will be for the division. Win it and go 11-6. Lose it and go 10-7 again, with a repeat of second place behind Buffalo. Buffalo has a tough schedule. Gonna be a dog fight. The team that avoids the unexpected let down….the one that manages to stay 100% focused over the duration…will likely eek out the division. The second place finisher may not make the playoffs due to how stacked the AFC is.

  3. I love the Jan 2nd matchup tween Bills in the Natti. Should happen much earlier in the year, but, whatever, I’ll take it. Best game of the year hands down. boof!

  4. Ticket to the Seahawks/Denver game $145
    Eight beers
    $145
    Watching Drew Lock beat Russ pricele$$

  5. I like Carson having to go back to Philly
    Obviously Wilson going “back home” good call.

  6. I guess the NFL has already decided Watson’s fate. Cleveland gets a Monday Night game in Week 9. Sounds like an 8 game suspension to me…

  7. Worst game on the schedule. Wilson is past his prime and neither team are competing for much. Sadly, one of the bad teams will be 1-0, my guess is the winner will be 1-4 after week 5.
