Can anyone explain why NYC doesn't get the early game of CBS's doubleheader? I was hoping to watch the Pats at home, but instead NYers probably get three hours of Paid Programming or reruns of Two and a Half Man.

When a team plays a home game, that game is the only one shown in the team's home media market during that time slot. So you won't get anything up against the Jets game during the 1pm time slot.

Got it, thanks. That makes me a sad panda.

There's a handful of interesting matchups this week. Pitt @ BAL is the big one, obviously, but those of us who don't want to see Pitt in the playoffs will probably be interested in Cinci @ SD.

Seattle gets its CBs for this week, right? If so that makes SEA @ CHI more interesting.

Then, of course, we're all probably praying for TB to pull one out at Denver. Other than that, there aren't really any intriguing non-Pats matchups.

Can anyone explain why the Greensboro NC is getting Jax-Buf instead of NE-MIA or even the TEN game? Seems very random and it's not like Jax-Buf is a big game.

That's odd. I can't figure that one out...it's the Panthers secondary market, but neither of those teams is a Panthers rival...


EDIT: The map has been changed. Greensboro is getting NE-Miami now.

So, all parts of the west except for Texas, North Dakota and some small portions of a few other states get Pats - Fins. I'm in one of the exception places (NorCal). I suppose this is because Andrew Luck went to Stanford. Can I borrow Stewie Griffin's time machine and make Andrew go to Notre Dame, or something?

This week should be exciting but the only real rivalry game in this 'rivalry week' will be the Monday Night game. Ben is out, the Dolphins are mediocre, Philly & Dallas stink and the Saints are a loss from elimination basically. What a shame as this could have been a tremendous week of football if things turned out as expected in the pre-season.

They usually black 1-2 games late in the year. It's mind boggling with the NFL scheduling. If they had scheduled the jags game early in the season when there was tons of hype it would have been a sellout. Flip the Pats game in buffalo earlier in the year to a December date and its likely one less blackout in the league.

And just a sidenote: watching Drew Brees this season just makes me appreciate Brady even more. Don't get me wrong, Brees is a great player, but he's very inconsistent from year to year. Continued excellence is something very difficult to achieve in this league.

I wonder if Brees got hurt last week on one of the 5 sacks he took vs. SF.

He looked off most of the 4th quarter that game, and today hasn't been so great yet either.

He's pretty much alternated great and not-so-great seasons his whole career. When he's on, he's a machine, but he just turns the ball over a lot otherwise. He doesn't have bad seasons, but I just feel he has had more years in which he looked merely 'good' than both Brady and Manning have had combined since 2006. He's still a great, great player, but I often see him ranked with Tom and Peyton on that upper echelon as if he were their equal. He isn't.

On his first pick, he played it just like I would in Madden. Play-action, pump-fakes, the safety doesn't bite, unloads it deep anyway.

Atlanta seems to have abandoned the run for no apparent reason. Perhaps they should review the film of the first drive of the game.

I'm pretty sure you're nearly 100% wrong on all of this. Go ahead and prove your case though. My interest is certainly piqued.

Why would you use play action in Madden? That's like a "please sack me" button.
