While I would normally highlight a marquee match-up during the late game slate, there really are none. The Cardinals and Lions is semi-intriguing, if only to witness the Lions progression into a complete dumpster fire. The Broncos visit the Raiders, which is probably going to be a lot closer than everyone thinks. And when you finally accept that the Raiders may be getting closer to a viable football franchise, they’ll do something totally Raiders. I’m going to say this time, it’ll be a ridiculous personal foul penalty at the end of the game to seal it for Denver. And the last game of the day is the Patriots traveling to Dallas. Typically, this would have been the marquee match-up of the day, but since half of the Cowboys are either dead or missing, New England will get to enjoy a free win. The only question is, will Belichick still keep his starters in when up by 100 points in the third quarter?
- It looks like Darren McFadden will be replacing Lance Dunbar as the primary pass-catcher for the Cowboys. So he’ll be known, forthwith as Pass DMC.
- Bills are expecting not to have Karlos Williams for Week 6 now as well. I never have issues with more Boobie.
- Three teams are interested in trading for Roddy White. I’m assuming those three teams are the Ravens, Ravens, and the Ravens.
