True but I'm not a soccer fan. Soccer is so boring to watch. Though the only time I might watch soccer is during the World Cup.

Seattle @ Arizona. Ahh, Thursday night game here before we know it, and the games are so bad that we STILL want to get rid of it. I think it was last year (or was it 2015??) that these 2 teams played to a 6-6 overtime tie on Sunday Night football in what was one of the most boring games ever sat through.
New Orleans @ Bill's Buffaloes. At home they should end the Saints winning streak. One of the better games of this week, but with this schedule this week that unfortunately is not saying much.
The non Aaron Roger's @ the teething Bears. Hundley stinks! He's so bad I'd probably pick the Browns & Niners to beat him. I wish John Fox would take the training wheels off of Trubisky, but I think the defense wins it.
Cleveland @ Detroit. In order to make Cleveland competitive in this game, Detroit should play with only 9 men on defense & offense......they'd probably STILL win by double figures.
Cincinnati @ Tennessee. Tough break for Cincinnati having to play back-to-back weeks in Jacksonville & Tennessee.
Pittsburgh @ Indianapolis. Unfortunately, the Colts are not facing Tom Savage.
New York grounded Jets @ Tampa Bay. This seems like the game of the week I am guaranteed to get wrong. At least the Jets are playing competitive and inspired football while the Bucs season has come down to getting cheap shots on the opposition because their season is going no where.
Minnesota @ Washington. Vikings coming off the bye, but I'll take the Redskins coming off the win in Seattle at home over the Purple People eaters.
Homeless Chargers @ Jacksonville. Jags defense means Blake Bortles has to do just enough, and that's what Bortles will do.
Houston @ LA Rams. Houston, we have a problem! I probably would have taken the Rams anyways, with Tom Savage this almost seems too easy. This has Giants/Broncos written all over it which is why I want to pick the Texans, but I think the Rams get the win. However, if the Texans do end up winning I am going to give myself a win as well to make up for my 3 losses picking the Giants last week.
Dallas @ Atlanta. Anyone could have success running behind that Dallas O-line, so I don't think the Cowboys will miss Zeke, while the Falcons have been a disaster! Cowboys on the road.
New York they are more midgets than Giants @ San Francisco. PILLOW FIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The Tom Brady's @ The Brock Osweiller's. See Detroit/Cleveland except instead of the Patriots playing 9 men on defense and offense, let's put Brian Hoyer under center instead of Tom Brady.
Miami @ Carolina. Whatever genius that thought putting the Dolphins on primetime 3 straight weeks was a good idea should be immediately fired!
Bye's: Chiefs, my Ravens, da just get them to Las Vegas already Raiders & the Wentzwagon. My Ravens, and the Artist to be known in the future as the Los Vegas Raiders are not very good. The Wentzwagon will avenge it's week 2 loss in KC.

I'll stand by what I said a couple years ago regarding Thursday night game.

1) And this is my personal preference: Thursday night game only 2 weeks of the year: Week 1 & on Thanksgiving. The 6 teams playing on Thanksgiving ALL get the previous week off.
2) If the NFL keeps Thursday night football. Simple formula: There are 16 Thursday night games (week 1 to week 16, no week 17 game), and there are 32 teams meaning each team gets 1 appearance, and 1 appearance ONLY on Thursday night. The week PRIOR to that teams appearance on Thursday night is that team's bye week. The 2 teams that play in week 1 play in a Thanksgiving game, so the week prior to Thanksgiving will be their bye week. And for those people that are saying "we shouldn't be having bye's in week 2 or week 15" well we had a bye in week 1 this year because of the hurricane, and remember prior to the Texans entering the league there were only 31 teams, meaning at least 1 team had a bye every week, including week's 1 & week 17.

I am totally in agreement. Thursday nights games don't work well if you don't do those two things. TNF games never allows each team a full week off, especially those recovering from injuries. That goes the same for London games and they definitely need to do scrap Mexico City games.

I would only accept the kickoff games and Thanksgiving games with Dallas and Detroit hosting.

Also, they need to do away with MNF doubleheaders. There is no need two MNF games, just scrap the TNF games and the MNF doubleheader; for primetime games, only ONE Sunday night game and only ONE Monday night game, make no mistake about it.

I disagree. I like the double header. It allows me to watch the early game in full and still get to bed at a decent hour.

It seems to have passed IMO. I don't believe anyone on the Bills is kneeling anymore. I think that is the case with most teams. As long as Trump doesn't say anything again we should be good.

Seattle @ Arizona 1-0 Picked earlier
New Orleans @ Buffalo I think this game is like the Bucs game a few weeks back. It will come down to a final drive.
Green Bay @ Chicago
Cleveland @ Detroit
Cincinnati @ Tennessee
Pittsburgh @ Indianapolis
NY Jets @ Tampa Bay
LA Chargers @ Jacksonville
Houston @ LA Rams
Dallas @ Atlanta
NY Giants @ San Francisco
New England @ Denver I tried real hard to convince myself to take Denver here but just can't.
Miami @ Carolina Carolina is so up and down they will probably lose this game.
