Here’s a spot for you to log your reactions to the Week 8 early games that are taking place this afternoon.
Yeesh, what a bunch of stinkers. Some thoughts we have as a quick look at the early setup today:
- NE @ MIA — The Patriots are dealing with Life After Gronk and will take on a divisional opponent that even when at their worst can be a bugaboo for the Patriots. The Jets need the Dolphins to lose this game to stand any postseason chances come Week 17.
- SEA @ NYG — No one is mistaking the Giants for their playoff contending selves of year’s past, but coming off a tough loss in San Francisco last week, this game will be a litmus test for how good a team Seattle is away from their home field advantage.
- WSH @ ATL — Talk about the Dirty South. The only interesting component of this game will be how Kirk Cousins performs in replacement of RG3. The whole Washington situation is a mess and trying to peel back the layers of the onion won’t be done here. At the very least, it seems like Washington might be trying to dangle Cousins as tasty trade bait come this offseason.
Leave your thoughts, observations, whatever you like in the comments for the early afternoon games!
