Football is killing it this year, so you know what we need? No, not more cowbell. More football.
Well, you’re in luck. Thursday Night Football returns this week with the Atlanta Falcons taking on the Baltimore Ravens. NFL Network will broadcast the game, followed by the Miami Dolphins-Chicago Bears pillow fight on Nov. 18 and the suddenly important and competitive New England Patriots-Detroit Lions tilt on Thanksgiving.
Who’s handling the ones and twos?
That would be Bob Papa (play-by-play), Matt Millen and Joe Theismann (game analysts). Ugh, not Theismann.
The good news? There are only roughly 68 hours between the end of the Monday night game and the beginning of Thursday’s match. You can live for less than three days without football, right?
