Amazingly, after an 0-2 start the Buffalo Bills have managed to win three games in a row. Today’s opponent, the Niners, features controversial QB Colin Kaepernick. Genius Head Coach Chip Kelly (no relation) named Colin Kaepernick as his starting quarterback for this game. The joke making the rounds among Bills fans is that the Bills plan to play the National Anthem every time the Niners have a 3rd down so Colin Kaepernick has to take a knee! How will your favorite NFL team fare today?

[For our International readers: Colin Kaepernick initially sat while the National Anthem was played. He took some heat for that. So then Colin Kaepernick started to go down on one knee while the National Anthem was played. Kaepernick is protesting the treatment of African-Americans with this action. Last week, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg called Kaepernick’s taking a knee during the playing of the National Anthem “dumb and disrespectful.”]

    Greetings from Baton Rouge where John and I have been joining the twins for the LSU Family Weekend and where we watched the LSU Tigers put a 45-10 beatdown on Southern Miss last night. Between our visit here and keeping up with the baseball playoffs, along with the fact that the Saints had a bye last week, I hadn’t even checked the New Orleans schedule, but I see they’re playing the Panthers in the Superdome today. Both teams have dismal records (Saints are 1-3, Panthers are 1-4), so I’m expecting a high-scoring game with not much defense and a lead that see-saws back and forth. I wouldn’t be surprised if the game comes down to the final possession, but only time with tell.

    I like the National Anthem idea. The Bills are definitely on a roll.

    The Giants, on the other hand, are going the other way. They’ve never played well against the Ravens, so who knows which Giants will show up today? Odell Beckham needs to shut up and get his head in the game.

      I like the Anthem idea as well. The only time I minded him taking the knee or sitting was when they played in San Diego and it was military appreciation day. This is a big military town, and while he has the right to do that, I felt it was a slap in the face to veterans on a day when they are being honored. He’s put some money out to back up his feelings, so it’s not just a publicity stunt like it was suggested at the beginning.

      Hope the Packers do well.

    Deb, hope the girls are doing well. Our one and only trip to Baton Rouge came after Jazzfest in 2009. A friend was dying to go to Mike Anderson’s, which had closed on Bourbon Street after Katrina, so got us to drive with her to the original branch in Baton Rouge.

        It was pretty crowded last night–what with Family Weekend plus a lot of Southern Miss fans drove in from our neighboring state. And, of course, tailgating is like a religion here–the whole place smelled like a barbeque pit! We went from tailgate party to tailgate party: brisket, pulled pork, chicken, burgers, brats, you name it. Man, do I need a salad!

    We’ll see. The Seahawks play the Falcons, and Atlanta is pretty good this year. The paper touts this as best offense vs. best defense. I think it depends on how healthy Seattle is.

    Well, Eli and Beckham overcame the Ravens – and a terrible pass interference call – to pull out an exciting win.

    The hated Falcons just tied the Seahawks so I shut it off and came up to play on the computer. Mostly I’m happy with today’s scores. First the hated Broncos lost on Thursday, and now the hated Stealers, the hated 49ers, and the hated–whoops, I ran out of hated teams. But the beloved Bills and Giants won so if the Seahawks can win it’ll be a nearly perfect weekend.

    Bob turned it off too soon. The Falcons went ahead, the Seahawks came back but missed the extra point, then intercepted a tip ball and kicked a died goal to win it. That’s the first football game I’ve watched this season, thigh I only saw the 2nd half.

    Bills looking’ good, George. When do they play the Pats?
