It seems so long ago that we started our football journey, and here we are, at the half-way point. To celebrate, the NFL has decided to once again traverse the globe in a continuing effort to alienate football fans outside the United States, this time showcasing the hapless Lions (I nearly considered using the word “hopeless” instead, but let’s be honest, they do share the division with the Bears), going against the Chiefs sans Jamaal Charles. I hope London enjoys Stafford forcing throws into a quadruple-teamed Calvin Johnson and Alex Smith checkdowns as much as we do. Something also of note is that there are currently five undefeated teams in the NFL thus far, including the New England Patriots and Cincinnati Bengals, proving that the Atheists were onto something. Two of those teams, the Broncos and Packers, will face off for tonight’s Sunday Night Football showcase, allowing the entire NBC crew ample time to tell us how good Peyton Manning is despite having the arm strength of my great grandmother.

- The 49ers have waived Jarryd Hayne and promoted running back Kendall Gaskins to the active roster. Brace yourselves for “gas” metaphors from the commentators. Bonus points for “Stepping on the gas” if he runs for anything over three yards.
- Darren McFadden is expected to be a three-down back against the Seahawks, reassuring that the Christine Michael hype train will stay broken for another week. Don’t worry Michael owners, DMC can’t do anything three times in a row without injuring something.
- Dez Bryant will be on a “pitch count” today, meaning that he’ll also be playing in the World Series. Pretty cool story if you ask me.
- Jeremy Maclin is expected to play, assuring that everyone that picked up Albert Wilson can continue feeling bad about that decision.
