    The highlight has to be P. Manning going back to Indy, right?

    There are some dreadful games: Vikes/Giants on MNF; Ravens/Steelers; Bucs/Falcons.

    I'd love to see the Chiefs continue to go undefeated.

    Don't forget Cowboys at Eagles for first place in the NFC East! (both teams are 3-3)

    But all-in-all, sounds like a good day to work in the yard.

    Chiefs' next three: vs. Houston, vs. Cleveland, at Buffalo.

    They could be 9-0 heading into the Broncos game. I think that's the first week of flex scheduling, but I have to believe CBS used one of its vetoes on that one.

    I think the Chiefs and Broncos play twice in a three-week span.

    I hate when that happens. I've always thought there should be at least four weeks between games... Sometimes it works out when both games are at the very end of the season, but sometimes you have two teams and they've played both games before the season hits the halfway point.

    I don't think that ever happens anymore, by design. The schedule is intentionally back-loaded for division showdowns. There are only three teams that have played three division games so far, and all play the second matchup in the back half of the schedule, almost all of the games in the final month.

    Yeah, bad scheduling and not that hard to fix. Play one meeting before the end of October and the rematch in the final four weeks. Teams change as the season evolves.

    CBS has already protected both Broncos-Chiefs games. So not going to be flexed.

    Little known odd fact: Peyton Manning's father (Archie) and Andrew Luck's father (Oliver) were teammates on the 1983 Houston Oilers. The team went 2-14 with Manning and Luck combining to throw 10 TD passes and 21 interceptions. So much for bloodlines.

    Manning and Luck started a combined 9 games for the 1983 Oilers. Trivia: Who was the third quarterback who started the other seven games that season?

    Yet we get Jets-Pats twice in the first half of the season.

    Just watch the game on Thursday and call it a week.

    That's my plan.
