Really don't know how Buffalo and Cleveland make it to a prime time slot like tonight. Luckily it looks like a better matchup then it did going into the year.

everybody plays on a Thursday this year...

and I hardly call Thursday games "prime time"...every single one of them has been garbage thus far

that's what happens when you only have a few days to heal and prepare

I think they use Thursday night games of math ups like this intentionally, just to make it so each team gets a night game to be fair without taking the interest out of sunday or monday night football.

Hopefully Jordan Cameron keeps producing fantasy points for me though.

I didn't know the first part.

As for the 2nd part, it is a prime time tv slot with lots of viewers.

I like the thursday night football as it breaks the week up, but they need to really look at giving them to teams that have a bye the week before.

The Giants are still winless now 0-5
The KC Cheifs are 5-0 the same Cheifs that won only two games last year great turn around

This cowboys broncos game is looking good so far as Romo is playing uncharacteristically well

Saints are 5-0

The NFC South sucks pretty bad still. TB is a mess. Cam Newton is a terrible QB. Atlanta is having some real troubles. So far so good.

So 7-9 should be enough to win the NFC Least, but could 6-10 possibly do the trick? 7-9 teams could be getting wildcards in the NFC actually.

One of the best games ive watched in a long time. Even when Romo throws 500 yards he still has that 4th quarter INT. Unbelievable.

Are we really going to say Romo blew it? Or are we going to ignore the D that gave up 40 points?

I mean, I get it, I laugh at Romo too, but if my QB threw for 5 TDs and 500 yards, I'd say he's done more than enough for a team to win. If my D can get a decent stop in there.

Manning, Manning, Manning! Man is Peyton on fire this year! I hope he can get another Super Bowl. That Denver D just got exposed bad though. I guess they came through in the end, but wow. Awesome game!

Once we get Champ and Von back the D should be shored up nicely. We lacked any semblance of pass rush today and gave Romo all the time in the world.

Well that's the thing. Tony Romo was the team's best player, and should never lose a game where he puts up 48 points. But whether it's 48-48 or 3-3, a QB simply can't get picked off in his own red zone with two minutes left in a tied game. It just can't happen. But Romo has shown that it does happen, time and again. Is it harsh to say he blew it? Probably. But it's like a goaltender that shuts the door for 59 minutes then gives up a weak goal and loses 1-0. Is it his fault the team lost? No. Did he blow it? Yeah.

So the Giants suck at football right now. It's tough to watch, but I think they'll get a couple wins somewhere. The saving Grace, the Jags are Horri-bad, so the Giants can't be that bad.

Any chance the Broncos can put up 100 pts this week? I'd love to see it.

Can the Broncos score 100 pts vs. Jacksonville next week?

The answer is obviously yes

The way it needs to be looked at, is that no matter what happened before, the game is tied with 2 minutes left. Whether it's 48 all or 0-0, it's a starting point, and any team or quarterback would kill to have the ball in that situation. Romo's choking episodes are legendary. This is merely another one, but this one likely stings a bit more. Any other quarterback, you give him a pass and a mulligan. But Romo is the king of that kind of gag. Joe Montana never had the best regular season numbers, far from it, in fact. But crunch time is where you make or break your name in sport.

Stay classy, Denver. RT @DenverBroncos: The #Broncos' 51 points in yesterday's win are as many points as the Jaguars have scored all season.

The spread is 27 pts for the Denver game vs. Jacksonville. Many pundits feel that we would likely see backups make an appearance as soon as the midway point in the second quarter but probably in the second half.

If the Broncos are up by 4 TDs they won't be playing Manning. Unless they want to start breaking some records. Then its going to be an offensive bloodbath.

@SportsCenter: THIS JUST IN: A source close to the situation expects Adrian Peterson to play Sunday against Carolina. (via @JosinaAnderson)

Surprised he's going to play
Guys a warrior I guess
