College of Sports Media Game of the Night:
The NFL regular season is less then two weeks away from starting and most preseason games are no longer tryouts, but are being played as warm ups for week 1. Fro anyone who caught the Chicago Bears and Denver Broncos clash last night the first three quarters felt like a play off game. I guess Jay Cutler making his return to the Mile High State had something to do with that.
Tonight the Minnesota Vikings and the Brett Favre Experiment make their way to the Lone Star state to take on the Houston Texans. There are several rumours out there that the Vikings locker room is divided into three – Favre supporters, Sage Rosenfels backers and Tarvaris Jackson followers. Favre will get the start and if he struggles expect the critics to get louder. The Houston Texans look to be in great position to improve on their 8-8 record last year. They have young gunslinger, Matt Schaub, behind centre and arguably one of the most talented wide receivers in the game Andre Johnson. Add to the mix second year running back Steve Slaton and you have one of the most potent offences in the AFC. Slaton rushed for 1282 yards, nine touchdowns and led the conference in yards from scrimmage. If the defence can play as well as the offence this Houston team could challenge New England, Pittsburgh, Tennessee and San Diego.
