The San Francisco 49ers kick off at 5:30 p.m. PT, but in the meantime, we have the afternoon football to keep us occupied. The morning featured a lot of blah football, but thankfully Saints-Browns gave us a fantastic finish. The Browns jumped up early, fell behind, and then stunned them late on a last second field goal. The loss drops the Saints to 0-2. We like that!
The Arizona Cardinals improved to 2-0 with a road win over the New York Giants. The Giants are a bad football team, but going on the road to get the win is big for the Cardinals. They hold a half game lead in the NFC West until the Seahawks and 49ers play.
The afternoon features two NFC West road games. The St. Louis Rams travel to face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, while the Seattle Seahawks travel to face the San Diego Chargers. The Rams are 4.5-point underdogs, while the Seahawks are 4.5-point favorites. My pick is the Bucs and Chargers covering, although I got the Chargers at +6, so hopefully that helps!
We've got a couple pieces of content planned this afternoon, then inactives at around 4 p.m. PT, and the first game thread at 5 p.m. See you then!
