Monday Night Football double header: Texans at Saints, Broncos at Raiders

We finish out the first week of the 2019 NFL season with our customary double header.

It will be a fun ending to what was an interesting first week.

I think these are the main takeaways.

  1. No one is beating the New England Patriots, let’s just wrap it up now.
  2. Kansas City is still the best ticket in the NFL, but the Arizona Cardinals may yet be a mandatory RedZone Channel team.
  3. Was it overhype or are the Cleveland Browns not ready for primetime?

Now, we have two games on ESPN, so sit back, relax and get ready for seven hours of football.

Houston Texans at New Orleans Saints 4:10pm Arizona Time (-7, 52.5)
Saints 42
Texans 34

Denver Broncos at Oakland Raiders 7:20pm Arizona Time (+2, 42.5)
Broncos 20
Raiders 13

What do you think?

Are the Saints the cream of the NFC crop?

Are the Raiders going to be able to handle what is going on or is it too much?

Enjoy the game.
