I assume that coverage map for the CBS late game will change most of the BAL-HOU markets to NE-NYJ.

A few really interesting games this week.

Both Philly and Dallas looked good last week so we'll see where they stand against eachother.

Pats vs. Jets should be interesting too. No need to say why, we all know.

Not sure about Sunday Ticket access.
Check with DirecTV's web site or the online guide on the DirecTV decoder box to find out if you can see that game if you're an NFL Sunday Ticket subscriber.

The Ravens/Texans will not be available on Sunday Ticket Monday. ESPN has exclusive prime time rights (although I'm not sure how that allows the local CBS affiliates in the Houston and Baltimore areas to air the game):

Will the Raiders defensive try and play this week? Last week was hard to watch Though we had some positive offensive plays overall I hurt a lot. Perhaps it will be to my advantage that I have to watch Jets and Giants here in NYC.

And it looks like they reversed course. It will be available to ST subscribers except for the primary/secondary markets identified before.

Ugh.

Reliant Stadium damaged; Monday's game is off

No decision has been made regarding when or where the game will eventually be played

By JOHN McCLAIN Copyright 2008 Houston Chronicle
Sept. 13, 2008, 11:21AM

The Houston Texans will not be playing their home opener against the Baltimore Ravens on Monday night at Reliant Stadium.

The game was supposed to have been played at 7:30 p.m., but Hurricane Ike has caused damage to the stadium that has made it unsuitable for hosting the game.

"The facility will not be usable," said Shey Guinn, president of SMG, the company that manages Reliant Park.

"There's some structural damage to the roof. Part of it is off," Guinn said.

"There's also some other damage on the property caused by wind and water. We're in the process of assessing the damage," he said. "As far as the game being postponed again or played, that will be up to the NFL."

The game had originally been set for 3:15 p.m. Sunday, but because of Ike the NFL moved it to Monday night.

The Texans and Ravens will have no comment until they hear from the league. Conference calls among three are scheduled for later today.

The NFL will determine where and when the Texans play the Ravens. The Texans' bye week (Oct. 26) is a possibility.

The big question is, can Reliant Stadium be repaired in time for the Texans' next home game Oct. 5 against Indianapolis.

The Colts game marks the first of three in a row at home. Miami (Oct. 12) and Detroit (Oct. 19) are scheduled to come to Houston after Indianapolis.

Or a plethora of college stadiums. Hell, there are some HS stadiums in TX that should suffice.

Game has been postponed:

RAVENS-TEXANS POSTPONED UNTIL NOVEMBER 9
Posted by Mike Florio on September 13, 2008, 6:03 p.m. EDT
Chris Mortensen reports (and we’ve confirmed) that the Week Two game between the Baltimore Ravens and Houston Texans has been postponed until November 9.

A league source tells us that the Texans were unwilling to play the game this weekend in any place but Houston.

And so the bye week square-dance that a reader suggested to us earlier in the week is the approach the NFL will use. The Bengals-Texans game moves from November 9 to October 26, the Bengals’ bye moves from October 26 to November 9, and the Ravens and Texans will take their bye in Week Two.

It means that the Ravens and Texans will play 15 straight games without a break, and that any plans the players on either team had for their respective bye weeks (the Texans on October 26 and the Ravens on November 9) will now change.

Awwww, poor babies. It's a shame they didn't play back when the NFL had a 16 week season instead of 16 games in 17 weeks like they do now.

I remember when the CFL would have a team play 2 games in 4 days.Removing all the bullshit(timeouts,huddles,injuries) ,an NFL game only lasts about 40 minutes so I think the bye week is a big sham.Its just so that the networks can show another week of games.They should have an 18 game schedule with 2 exhibitions.

Buck and Aikman are doing the Giants/Rams game? That's a tad odd.

The Vikes formula holds again, nice stop from the defense (INT), big run by Peterson...drive killed by errant Jackson throws. At least they got the FG.

That looked all too easy! He didn't have to layout to block it or anything.
