With all the media news about NFL players and their actions off the field, it’s getting harder and harder to think about the actual games. Unless, of course, you ignore the news outlets and just look at game lineups, injury reports, and potential game plans going into this week’s schedule.
Tonight’s Thursday Night Football game features Tamba Bay (0-2) facing the Atlanta Falcons (1-1) at 8:25 pm (ET) on CBS/NFL. The game will be broadcast on the traditional CBS channel and available over-the-air for those of you without cable or satellite TV.
There are ten games scheduled at the 1:00 pm (ET) slot on Sunday, including Dallas at St. Louis, Baltimore at Cleveland, Indianapolis at Jacksonville, and Oakland at New England among the lineup. Philadelphia Eagle fans will be looking for the team’s third win when they face the Washington Redskins at Lincoln Financial Field also at 1:00 pm Eastern.
And, on Sunday late afternoon (where you usually find featured games of the week), San Francisco will visit Arizona for what is posed to be a blood fest after last season’s final regular game that resulted in a 23-20 win for the 49ers. The game of the weekend might be the Denver Broncos vs. Seattle meeting for the first time since last year’s Super Bowl. And, Pittsburgh hopes to redeem themselves from a loss last week in a matchup against the Carolina Panthers in Sunday Night Football’s game.
