If there was ever every week to settle in for some household time or possibly pop on a film throughout soccer season together with your lady to earn some severe brownie factors, that is the week. I’m undecided what the NFL was pondering earlier than the season once they scheduled Week 10, however rattling, they medically evaluated. Let’s kick issues off on Thursday evening with the Carolina Panthers and Chicago Bears. The one factor up grabs on this tank-fest is draft positioning, proper? Properly, besides that the Bears personal the Panthers’ first-round decide subsequent 12 months too. So even that doesn’t actually matter. Even the pointlessness of this sport is pointless. Now look, I get it. Thursday evening video games, by definition, are purported to be sucky so we are able to all make enjoyable of them. Thursday Night time Soccer is basically the Titans vs. Jaguars Invitational. However I hoped that Amazon Prime would ship higher video games, since you understand, we basically should pay for them now and delivering is form of their factor. However apparently, they’re giving us nothing greater than the piss bottles Bezos offers his staff on lavatory breaks. Then Sunday evening, you’ve bought the Jets touring to Vegas to play the Raiders. Is it simply me or has each different primetime sport been in Vegas this 12 months? Is P.F. Chang’s all of the sudden a league-wide sponsor? Why else is the world’s worst bowl lower getting his workforce in primetime a lot this 12 months? I’m as blissful as anybody for Antonio Pierce and the boys for lastly slaying that Josh McDragon, however this doesn’t imply they’re worthy of our primetime viewing eyes. And lastly, simply whenever you thought your Mondays couldn’t get any Mondays-ier, you get Broncos vs. Payments. Personally, I consider there are specific groups within the NFL who needs to be banned from primetime till they show they are often good for a complete season. And the Broncos are a type of groups. Yearly they get a set variety of primtime video games as if Peyton Manning was nonetheless below middle. We have to deal with the Broncos like a misbehaving little one. Till they show to us they are often accountable, we’re going to place them in timeout. No primetime and no ice cream.
All in all, it is a week we are able to all possibly take our nights off from soccer. Guess the NFL is giving us followers a BYE week for a change. Guess it permits me extra time to make amends for The Boys.
UPDATE: I nearly forgot the worldwide sport going down in Germany this week. Colts and Patriots? Woof. We’re actually going from giving Germany the most effective of our greatest final week to the most effective of our greatest… from 15 years in the past… this week. However then once more, I’m all for it. Not solely do I think we’ve sent too many good games to Europe as it is, however we nonetheless must payback Germany for World Struggle II and for bombing Pearl Harbor.
