I don't think AJ Smith is capable of firing Norv Turner

Steelers will fly direct to Newark on Sunday rather than the day before as there hotel doesn't have any power.

Wonder what happens if they get delayed?

If the Chiefs are gonna have a chance they have to stop playing man to man on Gates. That's just silly play calling

Tannehill has arguably the best rookie QB, when you consider what he has to work with (i.e. nothing). Making some great plays and helping his team win. He has been super.

Did some terrible things in week one whilst I was watching, but credit to the guy... he came back from that and has played well. Not spectacular but he's ahead of the curve that most analysts set for him this year.

Wanted Weeden to throw for Gordon/Benjamin in the endzone there, were already within Dawson's range, unless something goes wrong here 14-9 to the Ravens at the half.

Love that. Commentator on Redskins game says "I don't think the ground helped him make that catch", cut to replay of receiver holding either end of the ball as it bounces off the ground and in to his grip, other commentator says "I agree with you" in the most serious voice ever. Don't know if he is genuinely making fun of his colleague or is just as stupid.

Weeden almost picked off by Reed, throws a pick to Williams on the next play. The first one he shouldn't have thrown, Josh Gordon was wide open in the middle of the field for probably a 10 yard pick up, instead Weeden tries to throw down field where he has 3 receivers up against 5 DBs, Reed to be honest really should have picked it off. Then he throws it behind Jordan Cameron who wasn't even looking for the ball, thanks to the pick return start with 39 yards to go to the end zone.

Well he was 10/10, had 4 straight incompletions though around both sides of the half.

Better options than those 2 in the offseason I imagine. Jags suck and Colts were the worst team.

TNF is garbage. Football is for Sunday and Monday only. Although the away team on TNF gets better prep than the Steelers this week.

Anyone familiar with the "Redskins Rule"? If the Redskins win Obama will get re-elected on Tuesday. As it stands Mitt Romney will be president.

Aren't most TNF games divisional games or at least teams in the same time zone so not exactly sure where the advantage comes from.
