NFL Week 8: Early Games Open Thread

We've got to wait until the second round of NFL games today to catch the Buffalo Bills and the Washington Redskins. While we do said waiting, here's an open thread for everyone to discuss the early games today.

Up here in Western New York, we've got just one game on the docket: the Miami Dolphins are traveling to take on the New York Giants. Apparently, the NFL doesn't want Western New York to watch entertaining football until 4:00 this afternoon.

But, quite frankly, the NFL will be lucky if they get entertaining football anywhere in America early this afternoon. Perhaps the most intriguing matchup lies in Carolina, where the Panthers and Vikings square off in a game featuring two solid-looking rookie quarterbacks in Cam Newton and Christian Ponder. And I don't know, maybe you're into blowouts; you'll get them in Baltimore, St. Louis and perhaps even Tennessee today.

What's everyone doing until the Bills game comes on?
