The 2012 NFL season, the 93rd regular season of the National Football League, is set to begin Wednesday, September 5, 2012, and will end with Super Bowl XLVII on Sunday, February 3, 2013, at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans.
Here are some of the legitimate ways to watch NFL games beyond those available on over-the-air broadcasts and basic cable:
•With the software(the best way):
Watch online now: Satellite Direct.
•Many games are offered through the NFL Network channel. You can order this from your cable or satellite provider. This channel carries all the preseason games, weekly season games and hosts the popular show, NFL Total Access. It also includes “NFL Replay,” which offers the five best games of the week.
•For a free but legitimate viewing option, check out Hulu‘s NFL page online. You can watch past games, highlights and interviews. Just look under your favorite team’s name or in the Game of the Week section.
“We opened the Broncos 50-to-1 to win the Super Bowl in January before the last Super Bowl had played,” LVH Super Book assistant manager Jeff Sherman says, “and then when rumors were swirling in March about the three teams Manning would interview with after he was released from the Colts, we immediately dropped all their odds with the Broncos going to 20-to-1 just to be cautious.
“When he officially became a Bronco, we moved Denver to 10-to-1 and the public has been betting them all summer long. The Broncos and 49ers (10/1) are easily the most bet teams in our futures.”
As for the larger, sharper money, those bettors are a little more skeptical than the rest of the public on how Manning will fare this season. When the season-win totals came out in May at several sports books, the Broncos were bet down from winning 9 ½ games to 8 ½ games. It takes limit wagers to move the money-line on a total of 15 to 20 cents, and it takes about a dozen of those types of bets to move a half-game off the number. In the Broncos’ case, they’ve moved a whole game below what was first offered.
Rick Herron, one of The Linemakers on Sporting News, is one of those skeptics.
“I have a lot of questions beyond the possibility of Manning just staying healthy all season,” says Herron, who ran sports books for the Las Vegas Hilton, Sands and Fremont casinos. “Missing an entire season is a big deal, and even when he was playing for the Colts, we started to see a decline from his former self as his interception totals went up for three consecutive years.”
The O-line also ranked 23rd and 24th in stuffed runs (runs when the running back does not pass the line of scrimmage) and power success (critical runs on third and fourth downs or goal line situations with less than two yards to go) respectively, per Football Outsiders.
With the three-headed question mark at running back featuring Rashard Mendenhall coming back from an ACL injury, Jonathan Dwyer and Isaac Redman, confidence isn't exactly pouring into the Pittsburgh ground game.
If there's no run game, Ben Roethlisberger might be dropping back to pass a lot. That might not be the best thing for Big Ben's health. Roethlisberger has played 16 games in only one of his eight seasons. Pittsburgh ranking 20th with a 7.2 percent adjusted sack rate (yes, another Football Outsiders stat— explained here) probably doesn't help.
If Roethlisberger can't stay on the field and the question mark around the offensive line never becomes a period, the Steelers are looking at a disappointing season.
The Jets really could have used a pass rusher to complement a great secondary, but decided instead to shore up their defensive front.
Coples will have a hard time cracking the starting lineup with Mike Devito projected ahead of him on the team's depth chart, but should figure into the rotation and should be a big piece of the team's future.
When the team lost Jonathan Joseph to free agency, cornerback play fell off some in Cincinnati. To make matters worse, Leon Hall tore his Achilles tendon last season and it's uncertain when he'll be able to return to action.
The Bengals used their first of two first-rounders on Dre Kirkpatrick to solidify the cornerback position, only to lose him to a knee injury that will hold him out of most of training camp.
That lost time is going to be a huge speed bump in Kirkpatrick's development time as he'll be battling veteran Nate Clements for the starting job all season long.
