It's Sunday: What NFL Games Are You Watching?


I know I can't be the only football fan here on EvAv. What games are you watching today, and who are you rooting for?

I'm watching the early game right now between Washington and Cincinnati. Later I'll catch the Green Bay/Atlanta game. I'll be rooting for Atlanta, and I'll wrap up the week on Monday cheering for the Minnesota Vikings as they take on the Bears.

Skol Vikings!!!

I tend to spend a good chunk of the day watching the available games. I don't have Sunday Ticket, so I'm at the mercy those who make the regional airing decisions.

Since my girlfriend is a Patriots fan, we'll definitely be catching that one. I grew up as a Cowboys fan, so there's no question about the late game tonight.

The Packers are all hurt this week. I think McCarthy might have to play a down or two.

I just watch the Jets games these days. The endless parade of reviewed plays, blown calls, commercials, salary cap patchwork teams, and crybaby players has me looking for better things to do.

When I say start an hour into the game I mean I wait an hour to start watching the dvr... I end the game about the same time with out ads.

Nothing because of got a final today.

But if I didn't, nothing because the Ravens are on a bye.

NFL games? Fewer and fewer, and for what was my favorite sport, that's saying something. Lots of reasons:

* It's entertainment. Could you keep it entertaining, please? If you're going to shove bullshit talking points about gun control and whose lives matter while leading politicized protests, I'm going to find OTHER entertainment. I get enough of that shit elsewhere, no thank you.

* Flags. Flags everywhere. OMG, did you celebrate that touchdown? FLAGFLAGFLAGFLAGFLAG. Please, remove more fun from the game, NFL. DON'T HAVE FUN!

* Was it a catch? It wasn't a catch. But he caught it! Nope, not a catch. But it was a catch! Nope, see...it moved a millimeter.

* Is it time for a commercial? Well, they just kicked the ball, so....break for commercial! Is it time for a commercial? Well, they just called an official timeout, so...break for commercial! Who called a timeout? No, not one of the teams. The TV stations. For one of their million commercials during the game, interrupting the ten or eleven minutes of action you actually get in a three hour NFL game.

* Did you beat your wife? Oh, well...you're a good player. We'll keep you. Did you beat your wife? Oh, well...the video makes it too difficult to keep you, even though we planned to. Did you take a puff of a joint? SUSPENDED!

So, what NFL games am I watching? The answer is I'm watching less and less of this flag-laden, commercial-interrupted, politicized pile of formerly-fun but now not-so-much excrement.

Get off my lawn. I'm a blast at parties.

Am I the only Broncos fan here? I'm happy to see they got revenge on the Chargers today. That was quite a game.

The Denver D looks good. Wish they had a better offense.

Agreed. I think Siemian is doing rather well for his first starting year, but there are still kinks to work out and the rest of the offensive line still needs some coordination and discipline, but I think they're in a pretty decent spot right now. They really need CJ Anderson to heal up fast and Talib to get back on the field.

Dude I'm a life long mega Broncos fan. Glad we pulled out it at home against SD. Gave them WAY too many chances to come back. Our offense is almost completely borked at this point. I hate our Oline. Oh well, at least we didn't have 10 offensive holding flags this time around.

Yeah, ended up being a really good game. Glad to see that - came right down to the last play & was a nailbiter.

I don't mind the Hawks too much, but I can't stand New England.
