Sunday Games to Actually Watch and Games to Go Do Yard Work or Something
Game of the Week to Go Do Yard Work or Something
I’m tempted to say Bills v Ravens as the best game to avoid, but Nathan Peterman might be the worst watchable quarterback. How many picks will he throw? Will he throw more interceptions than passes? He’s just bad enough to break math.
Bengals vs Colts has a nice “oh dear" quality to it, but Andrew Luck's return is genuinely interesting.
This leaves Titans vs Dolphins. This is purely for the Dolphins. The lone fun reason to watch left -- the gloriously terrible Jay Cutler -- leaving us with nothing. Watch something else.
Game of the Week (!!!)
In an alternate universe, Seahawks vs Broncos is the game you ignore your wife and family for. In this universe -- the one where the Legion of Boom is a distant memory, the one where the Broncos are still scorched by The Heist Brock Osweiler, the one where John Elway apparently isn't good at football decision making -- this isn't it.
Texan vs Patriots is a decent choice. TB12 and his 41 year old arm are a must see. Gronk out there Gronking is always a blast. And Deshaun Watson might be the most exciting young superstar in the making.
All that doesn't hold a candle to Jimmy GQ facing probably the best defense in the NFL. Maybe the best coach. And the 49ers defense trying to handle Cook, Thielen, Rudolph, and now Cousins. 49ers vs Vikings is it. Here's our game of the week. To my family: don't get hurt during this one, because I can't revive you until this one's over.
