Quietly, Fox has continued to schedule EPL matches to make Sunday football doubleheaders when Fox only has one NFL game. Apologies all around for not including in last week's schedule that Fox would be showing a replay of Manchester United v. Newcastle after it's early game. United defeated the Magpies 3-0. CBS has the singleheader this week, and is not planning anything interesting in the other slot. Pity.
With the San Diego Chargers hosting the Denver Broncos on Monday Night Football, CBS is free to show all the LA Raiders fans this matchup in Atlanta. Unfortunately for Raiders fans, the silver and black are heavy underdogs for this road game. They are currently a touchdown and a field goal under, and according to OddsShark the Raiders haven't covered coming off a bye week in over a decade. Atlanta is 5-0, looking to go 6-0 into their bye week.
The Cowboys are the underdog here, though only by 3.5 at the moment. Tony Romo is having an off year, with a touchdown to interception ratio of 5-8 including five interceptions against the Chicago Bears on Monday Night Football. This looks like it could turn into a defensive battle, as Joe Flacco isn't on anyone's best of list. The Ravens have won 14 straight at home, look for them to win by a field goal.
The 49ers are the favorite here, by a touchdown, in this rematch of last year's NFC Championship game. Thom Brennaman is on the call, as Joe Buck gets prepared to call the NLCS for FOX between the San Francisco Giants and the winners of the Washington Nationals - St. Louis Cardinals series. So it's a good time to be a San Franciscan. The computers are predicting a high scoring affair, always fun for a neutral. The Niners are averaging 29.8 points per game and the Giants 30.4. Yee-haw!
