The NFL offering a feast of football starting today and including next weekend that will rival its Thanksgiving Day platter of games in November and its playoff weekend servings in January.
Football for breakfast.
Football for lunch.
Football for afternoon tea, if you’re so inclined.
And football for dinner.
Four NFL games will be offered to every television market in the country, starting at 9:30 a.m. with the New York Jets playing the Atlanta Falcons on the NFL Network, including a regular slate of regional and national games starting at 1 p.m. on FOX or CBS, in the 4 o’clock hour (eastern) on those two networks, and then the nationally televised Sunday night matchup between the Buffalo Bills and Kansas City Chiefs starting at 8:20 p.m. on NBC.
If you play it right, you can spend 14 hours watching NFL football with some strategic breaks between the morning and 1p.m. game, and again then between the 4 p.m. and night game. So you will be able to go to the bathroom or love on your spouse between games.
The beauty of this week’s schedule is it offers quality as well as quantity with some compelling storylines.
Are the Arizona Cardinals going to remain the NFL’s only undefeated team?
Or does San Francisco rookie QB Trey Lance, starting his first NFL game, have other ideas?
This is, by the way, a historic week for the league’s rookie quarterbacks.
There are two games matching 3-1 teams: The Packers and Bengals play in Cincinnati, and the Chargers and Browns play in Los Angeles.
Also, can the Jacksonville Jaguars and Detroit Lions finally win a game? And how will the Jaguars play against the Titans in their first game since the Urban Meyer drama of the past week?
That’s a lot of stuff the NFL is serving up this weekend and because there’s another game in London next Sunday — the Dolphins vs. Jaguars — we’ll do it again then.
It’s a feast.
