Is it common to miss the Sunday night game because that week Tampa Bay was playing Minnesota? Sure. But I guarantee every owner of Adrian Peterson didn’t miss a snap. Fantasy football makes the impossible, possible. It gives every game, and every play meaning, even to the average fan.
Honorable Mentions: Tim Tebow, or should I say the lack thereof. Assuming Tebow remains second string behind Sanchez for a majority of the season, maybe we can hear analysts debate about topics of prominence on ESPN.
Dominance of the Packers and the Patriots. Does anyone expect either of these teams to win less than 13 games this season?
Andrew Luck. Luck is expected to be the next Peyton Manning, which is fitting considering the team that drafted him. But Luck would have to pull off a miracle to do anything resembling promise with what Colts owner Jim Irsay has surrounded him with on the field.
