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.
Can Chargers find offensive rhythm? The Chargers are going to be rusty on offense Monday night at Oakland. The team had several injuries on offense in the preseason and the first unit really didn’t get much time together in games this summer. Quarterback Philip Rivers didn’t even play in the third (and most important) preseason game because of injuries on the offensive line. It could take time for this unit to come together.
Instant bad memories for Oakland: In the last game that counted in Oakland, after Denver lost at home to Kansas City, all the Raiders had to do was beat the Chargers to go to the playoffs for the first time since 2002. However, San Diego, which was eliminated from the playoff race the week before, hammered the Raiders 38-26, keeping them out of the playoffs. It also cemented Hue Jackson’s departure from Oakland. Now, the Dennis Allen-led Raiders can get off to a good start in 2012 by handling the same Chargers.
“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.
Hargrove, docked eight games, was released last month by Green Bay and is not currently with a team.
The appeals panel consisted of retired federal Judge Fern Smith of San Francisco, retired federal Judge Richard Howell of New York, and Georgetown professor James Oldham. It met in New York last week to hear arguments from the NFL Players Association, which appealed Burbank's ruling that Goodell had the authority to hear and rule on the players' appeals of their suspensions. NFL attorneys had asked the panel to affirm Burbank's ruling, but the panel sided in large part with the union.
The decision likely means that consolidated federal lawsuits brought against the NFL by Vilma and the NFLPA on behalf of the other three players are likely on hold until Goodell reissues punishment. It also spared U.S. District Judge Ginger Berrigan from having to decide before Sunday on a temporary restraining order requested by the players.
