Look at that, we’re back to one Thursday game, 14 Sunday games and one Monday night game. All is right in the NFL world. I like that there are byes, but I like more that there are full weekends of NFL action. It gets started off on a good note too, with the Saints traveling to Atlanta to take on the Falcons on Thursday night. New Orleans will be looking to keep their playoff hopes alive, but winning on the road on a short week is pretty tough.
Not a lot of games jump out as must watch, but the Monday night game between the Giants and Redskins should be pretty damn good. Robert Griffin III gets his first MNF appearance, and it’s a home game for Washington. They’re suddenly hot and with a win can stay in the hunt for the postseason. I also think the Patriots at the Dolphins should be good to see if Miami can slow down the number one scoring offense in the NFL. Good luck this week.
