Week 2 Pre-Gamin’: Giants at Football Team (7:20 CT) Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread, More

Chicago Bears

Week 1 is in the books, your fantasy team bombed (if you’re like me), the Bears were crap, and we’re all ready to do it all over again this week.

The New York Giants visit FedEx Field in Landover, Md., to take on the Washington Football Team in the lid-lifter for Week 2 of the NFL season tonight.

While this isn’t the sexiest matchup that Thursday Night Football will have to offer us this season, and boy will it have a tough time topping the thriller we got last Thursday night between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Dallas Cowboys, it’s a battle of two division rivals in primetime. It’ll get the job done if you’re craving some football to wash that nasty taste from Sunday night’s Bears debacle out of your mouth.
