Well, since we have to. . .in the words of Faith Hill. . .wait all day for Sunday night, here's a thread for those of you that feel compelled to stop by and discuss the early football games.
The only game of real consequence to us among the early set is between the Carolina Panthers and the Green Bay Packers up at Lambeau Field. A loss for the Packers would really put them behind the 8-ball, since it would drop them to 5-7 and two games behind whoever wins the big matchup this evening. Not to say that they couldn't get themselves back into it, but it would be very tough for them to do so. The Packers struggle against great rushing attacks, and few rushing attacks are better than Carolina's (well. . .except when they play the Vikings, natch). It's a very losable game for the Packers, particularly coming off of a short week where they got blown out on national television, and here's hoping that they can do just that.
So, if you want to talk about the early games, please do so here. The actual game thread for tonight's clash will go up between 4:00 and 5:00 PM Central time. And don't forget to take advantage of the new SBNation NFL Hub for all of your Sunday football needs!
