The 2012 NFL season, the 93rd regular season of the National Football League, is set to begin Wednesday, September 5, 2012, and will end with Super Bowl XLVII on Sunday, February 3, 2013, at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans.
Here are some of the legitimate ways to watch NFL games beyond those available on over-the-air broadcasts and basic cable:
•Many games are offered through the NFL Network channel. You can order this from your cable or satellite provider. This channel carries all the preseason games, weekly season games and hosts the popular show, NFL Total Access. It also includes “NFL Replay,” which offers the five best games of the week.
•For a free but legitimate viewing option, check out Hulu‘s NFL page online. You can watch past games, highlights and interviews. Just look under your favorite team’s name or in the Game of the Week section.
The Broncos opened up as 1-point home favorites over the Steelers and have been bet up to minus-1 ½. The Linemakers NFL Power Ratings have the Broncos at 96.5, tied with the Cowboys for 13th-best. The Steelers’ rating is 98.5, tied for fourth-best in the league with the 49ers. When adding in three points for the Broncos’ home-field advantage, the spread comes out perfectly to where it’s currently listed on the market.
Because of all the anticipation of football simply being back, Manning returning and this being an isolated Sunday night game, this should be one of the higher wagered upon games of the season.
Although it’s only the first week, the Steelers’ game is pivotal for the Broncos because it’s the first of seven games this season against opponents that made the playoffs last season. Getting nine wins or more could be very difficult for the Broncos if they don’t start off with some momentum. In Week 2 they play at Atlanta, and in Week 3 they welcome the Texans to Denver.
New York's offense stumbled down the stretch in 2011 as an 8-5 start devolved to an 8-8 finish and marked the first time in quarterback Mark Sanchez's three seasons that the Jets failed to reach the AFC Championship Game.
The ex-USC starter posted a 60.3 passer rating and threw seven of his 18 interceptions in the final stretch, which actually ended with Sanchez setting career-bests in completions (303), passing yards (3,474), touchdown passes (26) and quarterback rating (78.2).
And since the season-ending defeat in Miami, he's been joined on the roster by fellow quarterback Tim Tebow, who's subsequently been the source of a media frenzy in anticipation of a signal-calling controversy the Jets insist won't occur.
Also new to the fold is offensive coordinator Tony Sparano, the former Dolphins head coach who comes over from Miami after authoring significant success with Wildcat schemes.
Adding to the mystery is the lack of definition of exactly what role Tebow, who led Denver to an AFC West title and a playoff win last season, will play.
The Bills plan on a similar defense-first approach to end a playoff drought that stretches back to the "Music City Miracle" loss to Tennessee in January of 2000.
Buffalo was an early factor while winning five of seven games to begin 2011, but dropped a 27-11 home decision to the Jets the following week and won just once the rest of the way to finish 6-10.
In the offseason, they added defensive ends Mario Williams and Mark Anderson to boost a group that surrendered 5,938 total yards and registered just 29 sacks.
The Bills, under the leadership of head coach Chan Gailey, will also switch to a 4-3 scheme in 2012.
"This is where we make the money," said defensive tackle Marcell Dareus, who had 5 1/2 sacks as a rookie last season. "This is what they pay us the big bucks for. They made a great investment on the front four, and I'm pretty sure we won't disappoint them."
Road favorites? The Eagles should not be at a disadvantage just because the Browns are the home team in Sunday's game. Since this new incarnation of the Browns entered the league in 1999, it is 1-12 in season-opening games. The second-worst record in season openers over that same period of time is 4-9, shared by the Raiders and Chiefs.
Blowing in the Brees: If the Washington Redskins can hold New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees without a touchdown pass, they'll have pulled off some trick. Brees has thrown at least one touchdown pass in each of his previous 43 games. That's the second-longest streak in NFL history behind the 47-game streak authored by Johnny Unitas from 1956-60. The Redskins will play this game without starting strong safety Brandon Meriweather, who is out with a knee injury, and safety Tanard Jackson, who is suspended for the year for violating the league's drug policy. They would do well to find a way to get some pressure on Brees.
