NFL 2017

Wed Aug 30, 2017 9:57 am

Final preseason games played tomorrow, so let's get this started again.

Week 1

Thursday Night Football/Season Opener, 9/7
Kansas City Chiefs at New England Patriots

Sunday 9/10
New York Jets at Buffalo Bills
Philadelphia Eagles at Washington Redskins
"Oakland" Raiders at Tennessee Titans
Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Miami Dolphins - GAME MOVED TO WEEK 11
Jacksonville Jaguars at Houston Texans
Arizona Cardinals at Detroit Lions
Atlanta Falcons at Chicago Bears
Baltimore Ravens at Cincinnati Bengals
Pittsburgh Steelers at Cleveland Browns
Indianapolis Colts at Los Angeles Rams
Seattle Seahawks at Green Bay Packers
Carolina Panthers at San Francisco 49ers

Sunday Night Football
New York Giants at Dallas Cowboys

Monday Night Football 9/11
New Orleans Saints at Minnesota Vikings
Los Angeles Chargers at Denver Broncos

Okay, it feels weird having two teams moving between seasons (effectively). I am going to maintain the "Oakland" convention until they finally make it to Vegas.

Few updates worth mentioning...

First, The Dolphins/Buccaneers game has officially been pulled from Miami due to hurricane Irma. They will either play in a neutral location (Jacksonville may or may not be too close), or they will reschedule.

Second, Brock Osweiler has returned to the Denver Broncos for a small salary (possibly League minimum?) and a second string position. I a guessing that his new contract was served with a slice of humble pie. This, IMO, is a very interesting move that might make the Broncos a potent contender in the AFC West.

Finally, while the nation is still cleaning up from hurricane Harvey, J.J. Watt has now raised $20 million in relief.

EDIT: The Dolphins/Bucs game has officially been moved to week 11. Both teams will be playing 16 straight games.

Now it's $28 mil...I have a ton of respect for J.J. Watt. I'd love for him to come play for the Colts :lol:

Los Angeles Chargers at Denver Broncos

I think the Raiders are just going to be better with a stronger run game, the Browns will still be in rebuild mode, and the Broncos will be better supported by a solid backup QB (who could finally develop into a true starter).

The Cowboys should still be okay, but their opponents have better film on Dak Prescott now, and things will be worse if Elliot sits for a few games. I won't write them out of the NFC East, but I think they'll have to fight hard to win it.

The Packers looked awful in the 1st half, but they picked it up some in the 2nd half

Both teams did. Part of it is probably the reluctance to play starters much (and QBs hardly at all) during the preseason. A lot of rust to shake off, it seems.

But that punch call in the 2Q was BS, didn't even call the blatant facemask, instead a phantom punch. Took a TD off the board and changed the whole game.

I thought both teams looked good in the first half...on defense. And that's really good for Packers fans, since they generally have a top tier offense, especially in the winter.

As for the alleged punch, 1) My guess is that it will be reviewed and the league will have to issue some sort of apology, 2) we don't have the exact view of what the official saw. My guess is that it looked like a punch from one angle and, since the officiating crew have a zero-tolerance policy, out he went. If the league instituted an official replay review for some penalties, I would definitely support it.

Week 2

Thursday Night Football, 9/14
Houston Texans at Cincinnati Bengals

Sunday, 9/17
Cleveland Browns at Baltimore Ravens
Chicago Bears at Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Minnesota Vikings at Pittsburgh Steelers
New England Patriots at New Orleans Saints
Philadelphia Eagles at Kansas City Chiefs
Tennessee Titans at Jacksonville Jaguars
Arizona Cardinals at Indianapolis Colts
Buffalo Bills at Carolina Panthers
New York Jets at "Oakland" Raiders
Miami Dolphins at Los Angeles Chargers
San Francisco 49ers at Seattle Seahawks
Washington Redskins at Los Angeles Rams
Dallas Cowboys at Denver Broncos

Sunday Night Football
Green Bay Packers at Atlanta Falcons

Monday Night Football, 9/18
Detroit Lions at New York Giants

I think Browns/Ravens will be closer than people expect, but I'll still take the Ravens in that one. I'll also take the upset in Atlanta. Green Bay's defense looks better this year, and this should be the first real challenge for the Falcons coming off their Super Bowl loss.

Week 3

Thursday Night Football, 9/21
Los Angeles Rams at San Francisco 49ers

Sunday, 9/24
Baltimore Ravens vs. Jacksonville Jaguars in London

Cleveland Browns at Indianapolis Colts
New York Giants at Philadelphia Eagles
Miami Dolphins at New York Jets
Denver Broncos at Buffalo Bills
New Orleans Saints at Carolina Panthers
Pittsburgh Steelers at Chicago Bears
Atlanta Falcons at Detroit Lions
Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Minnesota Vikings
Houston Texans at New England Patriots
Seattle Seahawks at Tennessee Titans
Cincinnati Bengals at Green Bay Packers
Kansas City Chiefs at Los Angeles Chargers

Sunday Night Football
"Oakland" Raiders at Washington Redskins

Monday Night Football, 9/25
Dallas Cowboys at Arizona Cardinals

I think there are many lopsided matchups this week. The Raiders/Redskins in Prime time might be a surprise, but I think the Raiders are the better team, and they'll have plenty of time to rest after their cross-country flight. There's also a good possibility that Denver exposed the weak spots in the Cowboys' offense, and it will be interesting to see if the Cardinals' defense can shut it down.
