Thursday Night Football may still feel like a strange phenomenon to traditional NFL fans, but a win’s a win for Eli and the Giants. The rest of Week 3 (find tickets) will kick off during the standard Sunday and Monday timeslots and we’ve got a preview of which games you should keep an eye on.
Cincinnati at Washington: Second overall draft pick RG3 is already making a name for himself as a must-watch talent. Plus – you might as well enjoy “Griffining” before it jumps the shark like “Tebowing” did.
Atlanta at San Diego: The unbeaten ranks will thin after this game as two 2-0 teams clash on the gridiron. Matt Ryan and Phillip Rivers are pass-happy quarterbacks leaving the better defense to decide the game.
New England at Baltimore: These teams can’t stand each other, and Baltimore is out for revenge after last year’s 23-20 loss to the Patriots in the AFC Championship Game. Both teams are coming off disappointing Week 2 losses and neither wants a losing streak this early in the season. This game should be an epic battle.
Want the big stadium experience this weekend without the football? Bruce Springsteen is rocking the Giants home turf, MetLife Stadium, tonight and tomorrow night. Find yourself a pair of tickets, relive your “Glory Days” and then vote for Bruce Springsteen to win the Eventful 2012 Fans’ Choice Award for “Best Tour of the Year!”
