Because our lives are so very boring without a television nearby that's playing some sort of sporting event (preferably professional football), the NFL Network has a matchup tonight between the Jacksonville Jaguars and Atlanta Falcons.

I don't need to tell you just how bad of a team the Jaguars are, most of you having seen what the Chargers did to them on Monday Night football a week and a half ago, but the Falcons are an odd story. Many had them pegged as a challenger to the Packers in the NFC this year, but they seem to have regressed from last year's squad.

Atlanta has beaten most of the bad teams they've played and lost to nearly every good team they've had to match up again. Their best wins were against the Lions (who lost Stafford halfway through the game), Titans (who lost Hasselbeck halfway through the game) and Eagles. Against a bad Jaguars team, they should dominate, but there are still plenty of question marks about the dirty birds.

Use the comment section to chat during the game, about the game or anything else that crosses your mind. Myself, Steve Adler and Wonko will be watching most of the game from the Monkey Paw Pub on the outskirts of downtown, if anyone wants to stop by and say hello.
