Good morning everyone. It's good to see the sad history of Thursday Night Football was upheld with that awful game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Baltimore Ravens. It was such a poor game from start to finish that I could only groan when the Ravens forced overtime. I was covering the game for SB Nation and I was sure the game would end in a tie, but the Ravens did manage to kick the field goal and win it.
Now all I have to focus on is the San Francisco 49ers ... oh God, I miss Thursday Night Football. I've went ahead and said I was strangely confident in the 49ers for two consecutive weeks and I gotta say, that's all completely and utterly gone. They've looked like the team many of us has secretly feared they would be over the past two weeks and at this point I can only hope it's not a huge blowout again.
It won't be, right? Right? Onto the links.
