Thursday Night Football Open Thread

The 49ers get ready for their first preseason game of the year tomorrow, and we'll be back in the AM with plenty of coverage to get us ready. In the meantime, there are six matchups going on tonight. The Redskins and Bills got underway first, and Robert Griffin III got his pro career off to a strong start completing 4 of 6 passes for 70 yards and a touchdown.

The other games going on right now are Ravens-Falcons, Saints-Patriots, Steelers-Eagles and Packers-Chargers. The Broncos and Bears kick off in a few minutes, giving us a chance to check out Peyton Manning for the first time. Should be an interesting one for him. The preseason doesn't tell us a lot usually, but in the case of Peyton Manning, it will give us a chance to see what his arm strength and accuracy looks like amidst the neck issues. All has sounded relatively well in camp, but this will be the first real hitting of the year.
