Miami vs Buffalo: YAY Football!!!

Really?  I am a fan of the concept of Thursday Night Football cause I am an American Male, any excuse to drink beer and eat wings on a Thursday is a good thing!  HOWEVER, some of the match-ups this year have been BRUTAL!

I know, the NFL wanted every team to have one Thursday game for the competitive balance of the league.  I get that.  But as fans, we don’t want competitive balance!  We want GREAT MATCHUPS!  This one just sucks…

Good Thursday Match-ups:  Cowboys-Giants* (Week 1), Packers-Bears (Week 2), Giants-Panthers (Week 3), 49ers-Seahawks (Week 7), Texans-Lions** (Week 12), Cowboys-Redskins** (Week 12), Patriots-Jets** (Week 12), Saints-Falcons (Week 13)

Bad Thursday Match-ups: Ravens-Browns (Week 4), Rams-Cardinals (week 5), Titans-Steelers (Week 6), Bucs-Vikings (Week 8), Chargers-Chiefs (Week 9), Jaguars-Colts (Week 10), Dolphins-Bills (Week 11), Broncos-Raiders (Week 14), Bengals-Eagles (Week 15)

* I am aware this was played on a Wednesday
** Thanksgiving
