Whose brain child was this? It's bad enough some teams have to play on Thankgiving but to make all these teams play short weeks is just asking for trouble. IMO Aren't there enough injuries in the NFL already? Having guys play without normal few days rest and recovery is dumb. IMO Then there is the preparation angle. Some of these teams could be in close races. Ravens to night for instance. They are fighting for that 2nd playoff seed. It just does not seem fair. Why? .... NFL Money is my guess.
