Will this contest between NFC North rivals be the first competitive Thursday night game of the season?
The Oakland Raiders are 0-2 with no relief in sight, as they travel to New England to take on the Patriots in Week Three. That’s not the remedy for what ails the Silver & Black, of course, so it could be an ugly week for the team. Be prepared, Oakland fans, for a disastrous road trip.
It was an ugly, ugly day for the Oakland Raiders in their 2014 home opener, as the offense couldn’t get anything going until late, and the defense did a Swiss cheese impression from the opening whistle.
The Minnesota Vikings have a long tradition of having very good defensive tackles. They drafted Sharrif Floyd in the first round of the 2013 draft in hopes that he can continue the trend.

This weekend of NFL action brought about a number of huge storylines, but not all of them were incredibly positive and some of them were downright scary. In a weekend full of snow, there were some serious injuries and a broken record that had stood for decades in the NFL.

A Houston Texan is done for the year and won’t have to suffer much longer. In Green Bay, the Packers are dealing with a problem that they haven’t had in decades.
So Brandon Weeden has had his Browns’ job put up on Craigslist. Josh Freeman has a new job and will be the third starting quarterback for the Minnesota Vikings this season. The main story here is Colts owner Jim Irsay insulted one of the top quarterbacks in the history of football.
The NFL just gets really strange sometimes, but it never ceases to amaze you. Just five weeks into the season: Josh Freeman is a Viking, Eli Manning says he isn’t “lousy,” and the Broncos and Jaguars are waging war on Twitter.
