Week Eight Open Thread For Non-Vikings Games

Alright, ladies and gentlemen, this is the last time we'll have a thread like this for a while, in all likelihood, as the Vikings next six games after this week all kick off at noon Central time. . .unless, of course, we end up getting "flexed" into a more visible slot at some point down the track. But there are seven early games today for everyone's viewing and discussing pleasure.

The one that's of primary interest to us, of course, is the Green Bay Packers getting smacked around by the New York Jets. And, if the folks at Gang Green Nation are reading this by any chance, I'll say the same thing to you folks that I said to the folks at the Phinsider prior to Miami's game with the Packers. . .if you're good enough to beat us, you're certainly good enough to beat them.

The other NFC North match-up for this week has the Lions playing host to the Washington Redskins. The Bears have their bye this week and, despite that, Jay Cutler has already been intercepted twice and sacked four times.

Here's the rest of the early schedule for this week in the NFL:

Denver Broncos "at" San Francisco 49ers (with the "at" in quotation marks because this game is actually "at" Wembley Stadium in London, England)
Jacksonville Jaguars at Dallas Cowboys
Miami Dolphins at Cincinnati Bengals
Buffalo Bills at Kansas City Chiefs
Carolina Panthers at St. Louis Rams

The late slate includes the Tennessee Titans at the San Diego Chargers, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at the Arizona Cardinals, and the Seattle Seahawks at the Oakland Raiders. Your Sunday night matchup has the Pittsburgh Steelers traveling to New Orleans to take on the Saints, and we'll be getting the Houston Texans and Indianapolis Colts as the Monday nighter.

But, for now, enjoy the early games, ladies and gentlemen!
