Denver @ Indianapolis
This season there has been more consternation than ever before surrounding Thursday Night Football. With sloppy play and injuries being the prevailing themes many players have called for the NFL to put an end to the mid-week games. And this week, I think the league should listen to them. If ever there was a time to take a Thursday off, this would be it. Just call the game a tie and don’t waste anybody’s time. Or make up a score and stats and just tell us that’s what happened, because we aren’t going to watch anyway. Now I just need to come up with something to do with my resulting free time. Maybe spend some time with my kids and find out what they want for Christmas, and what their fallback ideas are ... Or finally take advantage of those $1 Long Island Ice Tea’s at Applebee’s. That choice makes itself.
