Eight games of football loom, and one of them may feature a hated rival getting smoked by the Seattle Seahawks. Always tune in for an opportunity like that.
On the AFC side of the ledger, the names are all familiar. With the exception of the Ravens, every team here was fighting for a Super Bowl bid just a year ago. The Ravens will attempt to knock off the Patriots and go on their second improbable deep run in three seasons, while the Broncos will try to knock off the Colts on the road to a second straight Super Bowl appearance.
For the NFC, it's the Super Bowl champion Seahawks hosting our good friends the Panthers, who took advantage of an offensively inept Cardinals a week ago and will now have a much stiffer challenge. The Packers and Cowboys are squaring off in the other game, and that might very well be the best game we've seen thus far.
