Back to Football! Steven and Jeff are back with their weekly previews of each week during the football season. The guys talk about the latest in NFL news, as the Colts declare Peyton Manning out for Week 1 and the Jaguars cut QB David Garrard just days before the regular season kicks off. Houston is on notice to win the division or else.

The guys like the Texans to take care of the Manning-less Colts and Jeff tells Steven that although he is taking the Browns to beat the Bengals, he needs to see the Browns beat a tougher opponent this season before he says they are for real. The guys disagree on a surprising five games to start out the season, including the Season opener on Thursday Night when the Saints visit the Packers. Steven likes the Saints to win by running with Mark Ingram and Jeff likes to Packers to start off hot behind Aaron Rodgers.

Since he lost last year, Jeff gets to start by picking the Challenge Game. This week he takes the “Battle of the Ryans” and says Rex Ryan and the Jets will use the emotional memorial of the 10 year anniversary of 9/11 to beat the Cowboys. Steven feels that it is that emotion piled on top of the pressure of winning that game, that will hurt the Jets in another early season emotional game.
