NFL Preseason Football - Thursday Aug 17

Tonight there are TWO games being played, both featuring opponents we'll be facing this season. One of them a division rival and the other, our 3rd opponent of the regular season.


FOX: Kansas City @ NY Giants, 5:00pm Pacific (8:00pm Eastern)

Can KC's run defense put up a better performance against a superior rushing team than they faced last week? Last week, the Chiefs allowed 160 yards rushing and 3 rushing TDs to the lowly Houston Texans.

Last season the Texans were ranked 15th in rushing offense and scored only 8 rushing TDs. Comparatively, the Giants were ranked 6th in rushing offense and scored 16 rushing TDs.

This game will be a much tougher test for the Chiefs.



NFL Network: Philadelphia @ Baltimore, 9:00pm Pacific

This will be the first real test for the Eagles players, as their previous two preseason games were versus the laughable Oakland Raiders and Cleveland Browns, teams that face serious OL and QB issues. The Eagles defense has sacked the QB four times in each of these two games. Can they continue versus the Ravens?

Meanwhile, Baltimore showed improvement at the QB position playing against the Giants last week. Steve McNair looked relatively sharp in limited starting action, completing 4 out of 5 passes, and scoring on a QB scramble for a TD from the 6 yard line. His one incompletion was on a deep pass. Look to see if the timing has improved on the longer passes. Kyle Boller also improved just by having McNair around. He completed 12 of 18 passes for 100 yards, again on mostly short passing plays.

KC's first team front seven looked like CRAP last week against the Texans new zone blocking scheme. Should be good to get another look at them tonight.

Is it wrongta want Eli ta light the quefs up??:icon_eek: :icon_shrug: :icon_huh:
I want Eli to get plunked on his azz by Derrick Johnson about a half dozen times. Then run crying to the sideline yelling "Daddy! Make it stop hurting! WAAHAAAAAAAHHH"

After that, the Giants can bull over the Chiefs run D for 300 yards for all I care.

But that Queefs fan said he was as good as Roaf. :icon_rofl:
Black was horrible last year filling in for Roaf (I saw the KC vs. Buff game - and Black got toasted).

Turley just looked bad on all three plays of the first series.

The Gnats are moving right through the Squaws "improved" defense.

LT's gonna have fun romping in their backfield.

I'm watching to see how Plaxico does versus their secondary, because VJ is going to be doing the same shite.
Toomer let one go right through his hands.

That fade was slightly overthrown just now, but the WR should have gone after it harder.

TD - shEli pass to Toomer. Bad defense on nearly EVERY play by KC.
