NFL Schedule

NFL Week #9 – The season is moving unpredictably and rapidly – Eagles are surprisingly undefeated

  • The Cleveland Browns, Dallas Cowboys, Denver Broncos, New York Giants, Pittsburgh Steelers and San Francisco 49ers get their bye week and won’t play this weekend, a rarity, six teams. In other words, of the 32 teams in the league, only 26 will play and thirteen games are scheduled.
  • When Fox’ lead team is running Green Bay at Detroit, you know they’re settling. To be precise, Kevin Burkhardt and Greg Olsen.
  • Our top notch friends, Nantz, Romo and Wolfson will preside over Rams at Bucs. It’s an upside down season, still an unpredictable one.
  • Note that the networks deferred due to the World Series – Six NFL teams as noted won’t be playing – to avoid running into the World Series.
  • CBS has the NFL Doubleheader and Fox a single slate. CBS’ doubleheader loses 2% of the country due to NFL forced blackout rules.
  • Buffalo and the Jets both getting more attention. Their Sunday rivalry gets on 162 CBS stations.
