Seattle Seahawks at St. Louis Rams


Since the Bears won't be playing until this evening, feel free to congregate here all day, until your first quarter thread goes up at 7:20pm ET (6:20pm CT). TV Maps HERE. Late games and some thoughts after the jump.

Late Games
Indianapolis Colts at Jacksonville Jaguars
Houston Texans at Oakland Raiders
Washington Redskins at Philadelphia Eagles
Arizona Cardinals at San Diego Chargers


Jets at Bills - This one should, theoretically, go easily to the Jets. That team, however, seems like it might choose this week to roll over to a not good Bills team.

Bengals at Browns - If you drive NE on Interstate 71 from Cincinnati, you get to Cleveland. I went to Cleveland once, and the entire downtown area smelled.  That said, Cincinnati's passing attack is going to open up this week, but they'll give up some rushing yards. Cincinnati wins, but it's closer than you thought.

Ravens at Steelers - This should be a good game, and if it's on in your area, should be quite the watch. We'll see if Harbaugh and the Ravens can figure out that fierce Steelers D.

Broncos at Titans - The Broncos are ranked 10th in Run defense. The Titans are ranked 8th in Rushing. Orton will have 250+ yards and 2+ TDs.  Write it down.

Lions at Packers - I would love to say the Lions win this one, but with Best's foot injury, and Stafford still out, I can't help but think that the Packers win by two touchdowns.

49ers at Falcons - The 49ers have given up 87 points so far this season (That's nearly 30/game for you counting at home.) That ties them with the Buffalo Bills for most in the league. Singletary's probably in his last season now, and I think that's probably good for him. He seems better suited to get into a coordinator position.

Panthers at Saints - Rookie QB? Saints defense that certain other SB fanbases insist is dirty and steals games? They should be teeing off on the Panthers O early and often. Same time, don't expect a blowout, the Saints always seem to play down to their opponents. (See: The 49ers Game)

Colts at Jaguars - I'm not sure a comment is even really required for this.

Texans at Raiders - The Texans are the only team with a positive record that has a negative point differential (-1). Look for them to change that this afternoon against a Raiders team that still doesn't have the guidance they need. 

Redskins at Eagles - McNabb returns to Philly to take on the team that traded him to a divisional rival for some beans. He'll be hungry for blood, but the athleticism of Michael Vick will cause some nightmares for the Redskins. Look for an Eagles victory (though I'd prefer it go to Donovan.)

Cardinals at Chargers - The Cardinals aren't the Cardinals of the past couple years. The Chargers need to show that they're still very much in play for the AFC West. I mean, the Chiefs can't be for real... can they?

What say you? Enjoy the games, kids!
