I like them. Did anybody else liked the Packers' white uniforms at home?
Thumbs up for me...

Packers did not do color rush last year, 1st year teams could opt out, Packers did not want to do all green or all gold apparently. Packers are pretty rigid when it comes to their uniform.
I think the all white is to facilitate viewing for those who are color blind.

Started with Jets/Bills that was going to be green against red - which would be hard to discern if you don't see color.

Even the Bengals were all white... I thought those were good as well.

Let's be fair, Goodell came up with this. I know the NFL is greedy about money, they want to make a lot of money by doing this. Why complain about it? It isn't a big deal. Besides, there's nothing wrong with Sunday night or Monday night football either.

Giants and Rams play in London, England on Sunday. You know, the NFL has got to stop being greedy about making money. If they want to play NFL games outside the USA, do it in Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver, anywhere in Canada. American football isn't a worldwide sport. Who thinks playing in London is a bad idea?

They should move NFL to Saturday and put College on Sunday.

I don't think it's going to happen.

Chicago @ Green Bay. If they can't beat the Bears at home.....of course they didn't last year either.
NY Giants vs. LA Rams (in London with a 9:30 AM start Sunday). is OBJ going to spend the extra week in London and have a honeymoon with the kicking net??
Baltimore @ NY Jets. Christ! If they can't turn over Geno at least twice and win....I don't know what I'll do.
New Orleans @ Kansas City. Points, points, points! Think the Chiefs can somewhat hold down the Saints.
Indianapolis @ Tennessee. Fun Fact #1) The Titans haven't won 3 straight games since the last 2 games of the 2013 season and the first game of the 2014 season; and haven't won 3 straight in the same season since weeks 2-4 of the 2011 season! Fun fact #2) The Titans have lost 13 of 14 and 9 straight against the Colts! Let's put both streaks to bed.
Minnesota @ Philadelphia. Just a feeling (but also as a way to make up or lose a game on the rest of the pack). Vikings aren't finishing undefeated, and going home after 2 tough road games I think gives the Eagles an edge.
Cleveland @ Cincinnati. Well, the Indians are in the World Series and the Cavs are raising the championship banner on Tuesday, so I guess if you are going to be the worst team in the league, you may as well do it in Cleveland where football is going unnoticed for the next week or two.
Washington @ Detroit. This is a classic Redskins trap game: sleep-walking and uninterested against a team they should beat. I've seen this story too many times from them before.
Oakland @ Jacksonville. Usually I avoid the West Coast team playing the 1 PM game out East like the plague, but Oakland, the last 2 years, has been OK in this spot....against better teams.
Buffalo @ Miami. No McCoy and still no Watkins for the Bills. The road team usually does a lot better in this series, but I think the Dolphins steal one.
Tampa Bay @ San Francisco. Kaep will not be smoking a Winston.
San Diego @ Atlanta. Not a 1 PM start, but the Bolts will still go lights out.
New England @ Pittsburgh. This had potential to be a great game, now CBS is probably wishing they swapped out Oakland/Jacksonville for this for the national game.
Seattle @ Arizona. Woohoo! The Cardinals got 2 straight wins against a dumpster-fire organization (Niners) and a dumpster-fire team in 2016 (Jets). They'll need to show a lot more than that before I pick them against a team like Seattle.
Houston @ Denver. The Osweiler bowl.


Byes: Carolina, Dallas. Dallas by 6 TD's.

I am convinced that Indianapolis will never get passed Tennessee because of how bad they are.

I picked the Titans, I don't have a great deal of faith in the Colts. Luck isn't a bad QB, but give him some help. The GM coming out and saying he can't get players because of Luck's contract, one of the dumbest things a GM could say.

I agree with you Susan. I am losing confidence in the Colts. Pagano has to figure something out. Maybe the Colts need to get new offensive lineman that can protect Luck better and Luck is not the issue.
