The San Francisco 49ers get going at 1:25 p.m. PT today, but in the meantime there’s some fun football to watch this morning. We have eight games, and my two favorites might be Cardinals vs. Lions and Raiders vs. Titans.
The Cardinals regressed in a big way last season. They could bounce back, but I wonder if Carson Palmer has hit the wall. The Detroit Lions managed a playoff berth last year and signed Matthew Stafford to a monster extension this offseason. Meanwhile, the Raiders were in good shape before Derek Carr was lost for the season. The Titans have slowly improved and are expected to break out this season. Do the Raiders regress, or will they build on last year?
Here’s the full schedule of AM games today. This will serve as our game thread.
