Thursday Night Football
It was a night you just don’t see often in the NFL.
Here’s a look at the key fantasy players on both sides and our recommendation on whether you should start them or sit them in your fantasy lineup.
Week 3’s Thursday night matchup features two NFC South teams that made headlines for all the wrong reasons last season.
For just the second time in the past 11 regular-season games between Pittsburgh and Baltimore, the outcome was decided by more than a field goal, as the Ravens crushed the Steelers 26-6 last night at home.
We look at this game from a fantasy football perspective and consider the players from both sides that should be placed in the lineup or benched.
There’s plenty of drama surrounding the Ravens right now.
Solomon Wilcots may have had one season in the black and yellow, but he’s an expert on all things football and he took the time to weigh in on this Thursday’s match-up between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Baltimore Ravens. Amid numerous controversial stories, there is still football to be played and games to be won. Week two starts with the Ravens and Steelers in an AFC North divisional match-up.
It’s easy to pencil the Seahawks as back-to-back Super Bowl champs after their 36-16 beat-down of the Packers last night. Or to think Green Bay is a shadow of the franchise that won it all in 2011 and hasn’t reached the conference championship since.

The last time these two teams played, it was one of the more important regular season games in recent memory. You may remember the “touchdown” pass from Russell Wilson to Golden Tate, tabbed the Inaccurate Reception, that essentially ended the referee lockout.

The NFL Network set a new record for Thursday night football when the Bears took on the Packers, even though it made for some disappointing viewing for Chicagoans.
The Bears not only beat up the Dolphins but shut them down completely. A feat which has not been done in the Miami stadium since 2001. AUDIO HIGHLIGHTS – PHOTOS – TOM THAYER
