Actually, it'll be tough even getting all the way up to "excited".

Maybe if I slam down a massive amount of coffee all day...?

Hey, why not? I can sleep next month!


The NBA doubleheader on TNT will likely play a role in many people not watching the jags game

And the Quality of the NFL game offered.

I have said before:
Get rid of London Games
Get Rid of Thursday night games (Except Thanksgivin as tradition)
No regular season games outside of the USA
and now I add

Get rid of Goodell He has been there too long and is ruining the game.

Let's be fair, I'm tired of everybody complaining about the Thursday night games. However, I do agree that the London Games should stop. The only place that the NFL should play games outside the US is Canada.

I went 8-7 last week for a total score now of 59-48. Here are my picks for week 8:

Jaguars @ Titans: Titans. There are likely many reasons the league's pri-time ratings are falling. I'm sure the Kaepernick protests are part of it. And I'm sure the election cycle may have an influence on it. But the league is kidding itself if it thinks lame match ups like this in prime time games are not part of the problem. And those ugly color rush uniforms are not helping things!

Redskins @ Bengals (in London): Bengals. The Bengals are far from out of the running for an AFC North title and will play motivated to even out their record. The Redskins losing Matt Jones for this one certainly doesn't help, and Kirk Cousins is going to to need to be mistake free. Either team can win this one, but I think the Bengals are a little better on both sides of the ball.

Chiefs @ Colts: Chiefs. In a crowded AFC West, the Chiefs get a win and remain relevant. In an equally crowded but for a different reason AFC South the Colts get a loss and remain relevant. Such is life in the NFL.

Cardinals @ Panthers: Panthers. Cam Newton returns and the Panthers coming out of a bye tell everyone who will listen the league hasn't heard the last of them in 2016.

Raiders @ Buccaneers: Raiders. The second consecutive Florida game for the Raiders won't be an easy win, but it'll be a win.

Seahawks @ Saints: Seahawks. If good teams rebound after a loss, what does a good team do after a tie?

Lions @ Texans: Texans. Brock Osweiler's 131 yards on 41 attempts against the Broncos is the 2nd fewest in that many attempts in league history. And nearly half of them came against a soft D at the end of the game. Curious...the Broncos are giving up some yardage on the ground and the Texans still saw fit to attempt 41 passes against the league's best secondary? Curious indeed...

Patriots @ Bills: Patriots. You can toss out that 16-0 win over the Patriots a few weeks ago. Toss it right out and insert a two-score win for the Patriots in this one.

Jets @ Browns: Browns. I swore I wouldn't pick them this year but it's not like the Jets are any good either. With Josh McCown returning the Browns have at least a puncher's chance.

Chargers @ Broncos: Broncos. It's tough to sweep a team in the regular season when you play them in such close sequence.

Packers @ Falcons: Falcons. The Falcons get it turned around after a close loss @ Seattle and an OT loss to the Chargers. That 4th down attempt in OT...brilliant if it works, idiotic if it doesn't.

Eagles @ Cowboys: Cowboys. I've already seen the NFL post an article entitled, "Is Wentz-Prescott the next Brady-Manning rivalry?" Please guys...they're both rookies. Just enjoy the ride and stop worrying about over-hyping every little thing about the game.

Vikings @ Bears: Vikings. Jay Cutler returns for the Bears, so there's that.

Enjoy week 8, everyone! Except Chargers fans!

No I think Fitzpatrick will be able to move the offense and beat the browns.
