NFL TV Schedule

Week 2 NFL TV Schedule – Sponsored by Jim Tomsula, the NFL’s Unlikeliest Undefeated Coach

Yeah I don't get it either

Yes I know the 49ers beat the Vikings this past Monday night and not the Patriots or Packers. But still. The 49ers should suck. Badly. Yet they basically beat the life out of the Vikings and looked like a playoff contender. Don’t get me wrong, that will not happen. But for a guy who barely has more qualifications to coach than I do, that’s pretty damn impressive and I do hope he does well so it stops the NFL from going green all the time and recycling old head coaches who clearly cannot be head coaches of a professional football team.

So here we are at week two of the NFL season. No RedZone free preview. No Sunday Ticket free preview. We get what we get and that’s it. Kind of a letdown after last week. Not that I would get Sunday Ticket but it is nice every so often to have all those games at your disposal to flip back and forth to. I just don’t watch THAT much NFL (like I do with college football which many health professionals would probably say is an unhealthy obsession). Anyway here is the schedule:

Thursday
8:30 Denver at Kansas City CBS (all of Canada)/NFLN/SN1/CITY
Sunday
1:00 New England at Buffalo CBS (Golden Horseshoe, GTA, Eastern Ontario (except Ottawa), Quebec, Eastern Canada)/CTV (Northern Ontario, Kitchener, Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, Atlantic)/CKPR (Thunder Bay)/CHEX (Peterborough)/CKWS (Kingston)
1:00 Houston at Carolina No TV
1:00 Arizona at Chicago No TV
1:00 San Diego at Cincinnati CBS (BC, Alberta)
1:00 Tennessee at Cleveland No TV
1:00 Detroit at Minnesota FOX (Saskatchewan, Minnesota, Northwestern Ontario, Western Ontario, K/W-Cambridge, Guelph, Ottawa/Gatineau)/CTV (Winnipeg)
1:00 Tampa Bay at New Orleans No TV
1:00 Atlanta at NY Giants FOX (Northern Ontario, Belleville, Cornwall, Quebec, Eastern Canada)/CTV2 (Vancouver Island, Alberta, London, Toronto, Ottawa, Atlantic)
1:00 San Francisco at Pittsburgh FOX (BC, Alberta)/CTV (Vancouver, Alberta, Saskatchewan)/CITL (Lloydminster)
1:00 St. Louis at Washington No TV
4:05 Miami at Jacksonville No TV
4:05 Baltimore at Oakland CBS (Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Northwestern Ontario, Northern Ontario, Western Ontario, K/W-Cambridge, Guelph, Ottawa/Gatineau)/TSN1/TSN3/TSN4/TSN5
4:25 Dallas at Philadelphia FOX (all of Canada)/CTV (Vancouver, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Winnipeg, Northern Ontario, Kitchener, Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal)/CTV2 (Atlantic)/CKPR (Thunder Bay)/CHEX (Peterborough)/CKWS (Kingston)
8:30 Seattle at Green Bay NBC/TSN1/TSN3/TSN4/TSN5
Monday
8:30 NY Jets at Indianapolis TSN1/TSN3/TSN4

Yikes. Big change from last week. Six games not being shown on Canadian TV. That’s getting close to half. Then again, when pretty much everyone only gets Dallas-Philly for the afternoon game it makes it difficult to fit any other games in on the schedule. That should be a good game with everyone’s favourite coach Chip Kelly going up against Tony Romo and the Comeback Kids* (I wish I could make that asterisk bigger…thanks Eli you dumb fuck). Also, the Bills will go out and try to show the nation that last week was not a fluke. They win against the Pats this Sunday and they have to be considered the real deal. And with Tyrod Taylor at quarterback. Crazy.

The action starts tonight with Denver and KC playing the Thursday nighter. To be honest I am getting a bit sick of the Thursday night game. I know some NFL fans love it but I really don’t. Normally I watch college football on Thursday nights so unless the NFL game is huge or the college game is terrible, I veer the (so-called) amateur way rather than the professional way. I also know that the games past the midway point of the season are going to suck-diddly-uck for Thursdays. Plus, doesn’t Phil Simms do the analysis for the games when they are on CBS? That alone is reason not to watch (at least with the volume up).

“5000 on Red.” “Black.” “Damn.”

Time for some gambling. I didn’t do too badly last week (if you consider 9 out of 15 not too bad) but as Ricky Bobby says “If you ain’t first, you’re last.” Especially in ProLine pools. Just one time. That’s all I ask. One time to be perfect (cue Mr. Perfect music). Alright here are my picks where one of them is probably wrong. It’s like the world’s worst shell game.

New England over Buffalo

Houston over Carolina

Arizona over Chicago

Cincinnati over San Diego

Cleveland over Tennessee

Minnesota over Detroit

New Orleans over Tampa Bay

NY Giants over Atlanta

Pittsburgh over San Francisco

St. Louis over Washington

Miami over Jacksonville

Baltimore over Oakland

Philadelphia over Dallas

Green Bay over Seattle

Indianapolis over NY Jets

I’m also picking Denver to beat KC tonight although it will be close. Peyton Manning has to play better than he did last Sunday since he looked terrible. Almost Winston-like.

Just an FYI on the college schedule. It seems like the majority of viewers will be getting Northern Illinois-Ohio State on ABC rather than Nebraska-Miami. This could change the TV schedule slightly as the one which isn’t on ABC reverts to the specialty pack. I will keep you all updated on this.

    1. Oh man that is a fantastic Twitter account. Phil Simms is one of those analysts that I wish would shut up for once. He loves to hear himself talk and that’s the problem. It’s not that he doesn’t give good insight because he does…about four or five times a game. Otherwise he blathers on about nothing and generally makes an ass of himself. I don’t know how Nantz can stand this idiot.

  1. Here are my picks for Week Two. A lot of tough decisions:

    New England over Buffalo
    Carolina over Houston
    Chicago over Arizona (upset)
    San Diego over Cincinnati
    Tennessee over Cleveland
    Detroit over Minnesota
    New Orleans over Tampa Bay
    N.Y. Giants over Atlanta
    Pittsburgh over San Francisco
    St. Louis over Washington
    Miami over Jacksonville
    Baltimore over Oakland
    Philadelphia over Dallas
    Green Bay over Seattle
    Indianapolis over N.Y. Jets

  2. I am going to change my pick for the DAL-PHI game. Not so sure that I trust Sam Bradford and Tony Romo completed most of his passes last week despite throwing two interceptions against New York.

    1. Well so far today (as of 3:00pm) I have looked pretty good although New Orleans is letting me down a bit. For once I’d like to get to the Sunday afternoon games perfect so at least I feel I have a shot to win.

      I still think Romo might have a letdown game and that will factor in more than anything Philly will do.
