I don’t know why it irks me so much, but if I have to hear the phrase “at the quarter pole” to describe the first weeks of the season being done, I’m going to scream. Sure, it’s accurate, but something about so many NFL talking heads using the phrase has just begun to grate at my ears.
But I digress.
Week 5 is here, and there are several games to look forward to as you plan your Sunday of football viewing.
The obvious marquee matchup is New England versus the Jets. I am looking forward to this game to see if the Jets are actually going to be anything this year. If they are, they’ll play inspired football and at least make it a game. If not, the Patriots may roll like they did in the game last year when Mr. Uggs threw 4 TDs.
I am also pumped about the Sunday night matchup. Fun things to seem to happen in the Georgia Dome, and I’m looking for somewhere in the neighborhood of 75 points to be scored between the Packers and Falcons.
Other highlights: Tampa Bay v San Francisco (who’d a thunk it??); Detroit v Chicago on Monday night; and Eagles-Bills in Buffalo as Philly tries to salvage its nightmare of a season so far.
