Week 9 PM game thread

We take a look at the afternoon slate of games, and open a thread for discussion.

The morning schedule brought plenty of exciting football, but now it's time for the second set of games. The four afternoon games include Seahawks-Bucs, Eagles-Raiders, Ravens-Browns and Steelers-Patriots.

The afternoon slate features some "meh" matchups, but we have our rooting interests. The Seattle Seahawks host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Seahawks are heavy favorites, but maybe a miracle can happen. I'm not holding my breath on that front.

My guess for most entertaining game this afternoon is Eagles vs. Raiders. The Eagles offense has fallen apart after a hot start, but I think they could get things going against a very inconsistent Raiders defense. And we get a chance to check out Terrelle Pryor, who has been a dynamic threat this season. Pryor is struggling a bit in the passing game, but his legs make him dangerous.

We'll be back with a Sunday Night Football thread, but for now, enjoy the four games this afternoon.
