We’ve got our first Thursday night game of the year and one that will give us our first looks at both, announcer Bob Papa, and quarterback Brady Quinn. As far as Sunday games go, CBS once again has the lion’s share of great games, while FOX is stuck with some less than stellar inner-division games. Your A-Teams will be on Indy-Pittsburgh and Green Bay-Minnesota respectively, and for some reason the best game on FOX (NO-ATL) is being covered by the network’s D-Team. Random, but I wouldn’t expect anything less from them.
Here’s your schedule and thanks again to The 506 for the maps….
