Good morning folks. Hopefully, you enjoyed Thursday Night Football, and by that I mean hopefully you enjoyed watching the Atlanta Falcons commit a whole bunch of errors. Hopefully you also like watching terrible missed calls by the referees to further hurt the Falcons, because a lot of that happened. But hey, I like the New Orleans Saints myself and Drew Brees is a guy I always root for. Happy to see them pick up a win even if they won't be terribly competitive in the NFC South this season.

For the SB Nation mothership yesterday, I had to write a couple posts on expert picks and predictions, and one of them was for the game between the San Francisco 49ers and Baltimore Ravens. It's a game the 49ers are certainly more than capable of winning and I feel good about their chances, but I was surprised to see that the majority of experts are picking them to win it. Over at CBS Sports and ESPN, they're favoring the 49ers and that surprised me.

Anyway, let's get to the links, shall we? Go Niners!
