The Dolphins and Chiefs play in Frankfurt, Germany, early Sunday; Four NFL Clubs have byes

  • Prime video – Amazon – starts the NFL weekend with the Tennessee-Pittsburgh matchup. Week #9 has the Titans and Steelers.
  • Four teams have byes, Broncos, Lions, Jaguars and 49ers.
  • Jim Nantz and Troy Aikman will hardly have a sterling or overpowering game, Seattle at Baltimore. Passable though
  • On Sunday, NFL Network will show yet another game that runs live. It should be a dandy, Miami and Kansas City.
  • A long rivalry of two wonderful announcers, the Cowboys’ Brad Sham and the Eagles’ Merrill Reese will be in the same stadium this weekend.
  • Rich Eisen has become a league play-by-player in addition to his work in the studio. Eisen has grown nicely and thoroughly in his long career. He maintains his equanimity. He sounds himself. Eisen grew up determined and on Staten Island.
  • We now know that CBS’ top five NFL play-by-play Voices are Jim Nantz, Ian Eagle, Kev Harlan, Andrew Catalon and Spero Dedes.
