Here we are at another full day of football that doesn't include the San Francisco 49ers. I wish there were some more exciting matchups this week but I really don't see much that's compelling at this point. I'm very excited for tomorrow's Monday Night Football matchup against the Washington Redskins, however. I just think the 49ers are going to be out for blood and I expect to see a lot of positive things.
Which, of course, could mean that they're going to come out, get one first down all day and four more players will get injured. That's the kind of thing that happens when I make any bold predictions so I'm just going to ... stop doing that. As far as news today, we've got injury news and not much else.
Onto the links for the day.
