THIS IS A AUTHOR TPL from module folder
  • This week offers some interesting-seeming football games, some less-interesting football games, and the certainty that millions of people will watch all of those games regardless of how terrible they might be. So, like other weeks, but with Chiefs/Broncos.

  • A Reagan-era oom-pah Bengals fight song, an admission of defeat, a celebration of Andrew Luck's amazing memory and a bunch of NFL games with predictions of those games' outcomes.

  • In which we reach the point in the NFL season where we can acknowledge that many/most of these teams are not fun to watch, and probably not having much fun themselves. And then push on, and make predictions anyway.

  • Marv Levy sings, the Jets are shouted about for hard-to-discern reasons, and a journey to the heart of the Jacksonville Axis of Sads. Also predictions for this week's slate of NFL games.

  • Philip Rivers will pump his ROOM, the Seahawks will never look the part, and a little-known Peyton Manning factoid you won't get anywhere else. Also some predictions about this week's slate of NFL games.

  • Some good games, some bad games, the amazing Jaguars against the actualy amazing Broncos, all played comfortably in the shadow cast by the many problems of an increasingly, incredibly complicated entertainment.

  • Sad parking lots, the joys of Russell Wilson running around terrified, and a children's book called J.J. Watt The Patriotic Violence Mountain. Also some predictions for the NFL's Week 5 slate of games.

  • A strategic cockney accent from Roger Goodell, some lessons from a good new book by a former NFL tight end, the continuing cosmic be-thwartment of Brandon Weeden, and also some NFL games, predicted.

  • The Sad Bowl. The Browns in, um, transition. Scary moments and metaphors in which you are both the Colts and a failing comedian. Week Three of the NFL season, everybody!

  • In which our prognosticator gets very nervous about the Seahawks and willingly enters a blacked-out Jets bar. Also the Jaguars play the Raiders this week, and there's the pageantry of the Jeff Fisher versus Mike Smith Stepdad Bowl.
