Here it is, in all its glory:
Thursday Sept. 10: Tennessee at Pittsburgh (NBC) – Super Bowl champs vs the team with 2008’s best record. Should be a good one.
Sunday Sept. 13: Chicago at Green Bay (NBC) – One of the oldest rivalries features two teams that missed the playoffs in 2008. Yawn.
Monday Sept. 14: Buffalo at New England (ESPN) – Gee, I wonder why they scheduled this one? Could it have anything to do with the two most talented receivers never to have won a Super Bowl going head-to-head? Pats by 17.
Monday Sept. 14: San Diego at Oakland (ESPN) – Is this some kind of sick joke? No, it’s the NFL honoring the 50th anniversary of the AFL with a Monday night double-header consisting of four original AFL franchises. Even though the AFL started in 1960, not 1959. Oh well, what’s one lousy year, right?
