Week 3 Late Games Open Thread

09.22.13 4 years ago 532 Comments


Oh, geez. Poor Jaguars. Let’s just call this the battle of terrible uniforms since it won’t be much of a football game in Seattle this afternoon. What’s worse – that Jacksonville’s head coach is Seattle’s former defensive coordinator and has to see his former colleagues absolutely DESTROY him – or to see fans like this enjoy their failure?

But there are two watchable games (on paper) in this slot. The Dolphins last week got a win against a 2012 playoff team to jump to 2-0. But that was the Colts and everyone assumes they were a fluky good team last year, so a win over the Falcons would do a lot to convince the public that the Dolphins are FERRRR REAL.

The Colts travel to San Francisco, which is a tough assignment given how pissed off the Niners must be coming off that Sunday night game. If Trent Richardson happens not to have a good statistical game against a good defense, watch for a bunch of people to pronounce the trade for the Colts to be an EPIC FAIL BRAH but if the Colts get dominated today, I doubt it will only be on their running back.

Your late game slate, as rated by KSK’s not-at-all subjective, rigorously scientificated five-star system:

Atlanta at Miami ****
Buffalo at New York Jets **
