Afternoon slot: Green Bay Packers at Tampa Bay Buccaneers
I swear, the NFL does some really weird scheduling sometimes. I know that this season is completely different because of the coronavirus pandemic and the schedule has to be reworked but I never understand why they have so few afternoon games.
There are just two afternoon games this week while there is nine morning games. Why couldn’t they have started the postponed Denver Broncos-New England Patriots game at 1:05 p.m. PDT? The only reason I can think of is that they do not want to take the ratings away from the marquee game.
And boy, is it a marquee game. Aaron Rodgers vs. Tom Brady. Two top teams in the NFC. The battle of Bays. This is going to be a really interesting game to watch and as a pure football fan I cannot wait for this matchup.
This is going to tell us a lot of things about the NFL, even if it does not pertain to the LA Chargers since it is the NFC. Are the Packers legit top dogs in the NFC? Are the Tampa Bay Buccaneers even on that same Super Bowl level as the Packers and Seattle Seahawks?
We could really stretch it out and even ask the question of how good are the LA Chargers if they almost beat the Bucs and the Bucs beat the Packers easily?
Regardless if we can get that Chargers spin out of it or not, this is going to be a really fun game to watch on Sunday.
