Has Frerotte in MN changed the line for that game? I'm guessing they are at least 3 TD faves now

That makes sense. Does New England get the Indy game because that is the Pats big rivalry or are there lots of Colt's fans up there?

For some reason I could see the NYG/CIN game being a trap game for the G-men.....not sure why....probably just worried that their offense will wake up one of these weeks and finally win a game.

Is there a bigger loudmouth scumbag in the NFL than Joey Porter? You would think being on a team that has lost 17 of their last 18 would make you think twice about guaranteeing victory.

That might also explain the interest in the Cleveland-Baltimore game in Banff.... lots of slow lumbering animals up there.

Going to be an interesting game for the Cardinals. On the road, where they don't typically fare well. I think this game may be the predictor of how the rest of the season goes. Hopefully it's positive.

The Cards are sure to win. Why? Because I'll be attending the game, and the Skins have lost 6 of the last 7 games I've attended (the only win being vs. Dallas last year when Dallas had everything clinched and sat their starters for most of the game).

Yep-I just got Directv and do I ever miss being force fed the Detroit Lions for the past 40 years.

Hmm... SoCal doesn't get the Patriots for Matt Cassel (currently the number one fantasy football QB from USC this year...)

As a Cowboys fan this is all gravy. We get to go to Lambeau on a Sunday night. Doesn't get much better than this does it? Except for the Eagle game classic last Monday. The obvious top rated NFC teams are:

Dallas
Philly
Da Giants.

And now we go see what Aaron Rodgers can bring. If GB wants to be one of the top teams lets go see what they got. Honestly McNabb looked as good as he has ever looked. Making Philly a serious threat. But as players get older the injuries get easier. Hopefully he can stay healthy and this can easily be the best Division in football.

As a football fan of course you want your team to run away with the Division. But realistically the stronger your Division the stronger your team will be in the long run. Alot of the Giants success last year came from all those Cowboy, Eagles and Redskin games. They were weighed and measured all season long. Damn we do not get the Giants until week #9.

Look forward to the D representing themselves better. Hope we do not have that 6 day backlash after facing Johnson and the Eagles D. Hope we can pressure Rodgers and get some errors. And make this game ours early and just wind the clock on 'em. Still 3 damn days away.

I'm an NFC East guy too, but I wouldn't be so fast to say those are obviously the 3 best NFC teams, particuarly only 2 games in. There's a little team down in Carolina that is 2-0 and traveled 3,000 miles to beat a good SD team. And now that team gets their biggest offensive weapon back.

If I had to watch the Lions every game every year I don't think i'd be watching football at all. That would turn me off of the game completely.
As for Thanksgiving, i'm glad there are two others to choose from. I've been skipping that first game the past few years now.

Here in Canada, we get NFL Sunday Ticket from our cable providers as part of a SuperSports Pak along with Baseball, Hockey, Basketball, College Football and Basketball, OHL and Nascar for $30 @ month. Let's just say that I have no issue which game I can watch on Sunday.

Here is the story about the Houston Texans stadium. http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=3599237

Why the hell do they have a retractable roof there anyways.

Because they want Super Bowls and Final Fours.

Super bowls is a crap excuses suck it up you big babies, but as far as final fours I'll except that, but leave the damn roof open for football there should be no doubt about that.
