If there were a “can’t miss” Thursday Night Football game this year this would probably rank among them.

I say that for two reasons; the first being that the Giants and Washington have an opportunity tonight to change perceptions about their teams in the NFC East to a national audience early. (more…)

Division and playoff predictions are tricky in the NFL.
