Some dismiss it as the NFL cramming an extra day of football into the week where its as out of place as stuffing a Thanksgiving turkey with Spam. In 2014, there was a stigma attached to TNF that they only scheduled poor match-ups.

I love football. Love it. I’ll take day it every day of the week and twice on Sunday. Wait, there are three games on Sunday. Damn. I’ll take it four times on Sunday then. Early morning London games mean there are four games on Sunday you say? Damn damn. I guess I’ll take it five times on Sunday then.
