    Could there be a more perfect matchup for the first true Thursday Night Football game of the season?

    The under went 7-8 last year in TNF games where the teams were on short rest. And if you count the other two Thursday games (opening night and the week after Thanksgiving), it was 7-10.

    given that I've cut my cable (cause fuck comcast) and I don't have NFL Network, is Reddit the only streaming option?

    Not as many as in the rematch 11/18, by which point I assume Burfict will return.

    I don't have any data in front of me but I wonder if Vegas has baked this perception into their O/U for TNF by lowering the number if or teams have just improved in their preparation for these games over the years. I distinctly remember a buddy of mine talking about hammering the under on these games about 4-5 years ago and seemingly every game would end up well under. Purely anecdotal, like I said I don't have the numbers in front of me from earlier days of TNF O/U results, so the entire perception of betting the under could be incorrect in the first place.

    For what it's worth, no Baltimore TNF game since 2010 has gone above 43 (and that was OT-aided), and no Bengals TNF game has gone over 42 since 2012, which was only a 47 point affair (and even that appears to have been aided greatly by a 4th quarter Keystone Cops sequence by the Eagles).

    Feels like an under but who knows.

    Over is 43.5 Considering the recent history, I would go over on this game, just to try to flip the trend. But it wouldn't be a massive bet.

    IF NFLN is deliberately muting Joe Buck, I'm all for it. Am I the only one with a little crowd noise and no commentary?

    Edit: Now I have faint Spanish commentary

    Nice piece of officiating there. Obviously, neither guy got a good luck. They got together, talked about it, and called it the way that automatically threw it to the replay booth — and on the sort of play where video usually provides conclusive evidence, so the presumption of a correct on-field call was unlikely to matter.

    Not looking like a good bet early.

    We might have overestimated Baltimore, what with not having seen them against NFL competition yet.

    Cowherd had the Ravens (4) 6 spots ahead of the Pats (10) in his preseason Top 10.

    Obvious troll is obvious. (Cowherd, not you.)

    Can’t draw many conclusions based on a road Thursday night game and a home game against what might be the league’s worst team. Ravens still might be good, or not.

    Cincy is better than I thought, certainly.

    Why the indignation about the roughing the passer? Defender took 2 steps after the ball was thrown and pushes QB in the back to the ground.

    Dalton had an awesome preseason and now he’s looking great. Did he hire Tony Robbins or something?

    So happy i dropped Dalton this week bc I just needed him for week 1. Who needs 4 TDS and 200 yards in the first half?

    Good thing this game isn't in Baltimore. They'd be chanting for Jackson.

    So, it turns out that, last week notwithstanding, Joe Flacco still sucks. :)

    So what was the call on that key third down play?

    They ravens got off the field and they got called for a defensive holding

    Yet every replay they play they show no infraction

    And shocker, it has changed the complexion of this game

    Mixon looks extremely legit. Strong, fast, very shifty. Looks like the kind of guy who can do a lot with a little but is a threat to bust a long run if given any kind of daylight.
