2-star games (for die-hards)
Oakland Raiders at New England Patriots: Oakland has a 19-game losing streak going on the road to the east coast. Current longest streak in the NFL.
Kansas City Chiefs at Miami Dolphins: Chiefs have been a disappointment so far coming off a playoff season.
Houston Texans at New York Giants: This might be the Giants chance to get a win
Tennessee Titans at Cincinnati Bengals: Bengals are a very good team. Titans looked not so much against the Cowboys last week.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Atlanta Falcons: It’s the only game in town when it’s taking place but that doesn’t mean a rerun on another network wouldn’t be better. Falcons should dominate at home. Notice I said should. I’ll probably tune in though. It’s football, right?
1-star games (go hurricane hunting in Arizona)
Indianapolis Colts at Jacksonville Jaguars: Jags are awful. Their offensive line is 10 times worse than the Cards line from 2012 and we know just how bad that was.
Dallas Cowboys at St. Louis Rams: Get ready for another 30 carries by DeMarco Murray against the field-goal happy St. Louis Rams. Sounds like a ton of fun. So does the dry needling that Cards quarterback Carson Palmer has been getting this week to stimulate the nerve in his shoulder.
