Two-star games, run an errand or six if you have to:

Tennessee Titans at Kansas City ChiefsJake Locker vs. Alex Smith.  It’s not exactly Tom Brady vs. Peyton Manning.

Jacksonville Jaguars at Philadelphia Eagles:  A lot of eyes on Eagles quarterback Nick Foles.  He might have a field day against the Jags in Philly.

Cleveland Browns at Pittsburgh Steelers: I just hope those Browns fans that do decide to run an errand down 35-0 in the third quarter don’t miss the insertion of Johnny Manziel at quarterback.

Minnesota Vikings at St. Louis Rams:  This only gets a two-star over a one-star because the Rams defensive line rocks and it will be fun to see them have a field day against Vikings quarterback Matt Cassel.

Buffalo Bills at Chicago Bears: See comment above except insert Bears for Rams and E.J. Manuel for Matt Cassel.

One-star games, for the diehards and those that would rather watch Lawrence Welk for three hours:

Washington Redskins at Houston Texans:  The battle of the 3-13 vs. the 2-14….oh wait, that was their record last year too?

Oakland Raiders at New York Jets:  The Raiders are traveling to New York tomorrow, on Thursday, for Sunday’s game, so they can get used to the east coast time.  They could have spent all summer there.  They aren’t winning with a rookie quarterback on the road in his debut on an awful team.
