Colts (2-2-1) at Broncos (2-3), Colts win 12-9

If you missed this game, you didn’t miss much because there wasn’t a single touchdown scored during the whole game, and the game somehow went into overtime. Can’t really call this a defensive matchup since it was more an offensive struggle. When NFL spectators leave a game early, it’s generally because their team is losing badly, but that wasn’t the case Thursday night. Due to the Denver Broncos’ awful performance, Broncos fans opted to flee Empower Field at Mile High immediately before the start of overtime in the Colts’ 12-9 victory. Both Matt Ryan and Russell Wilson finished the game with 2 interceptions a piece including the game clinching interception by Stephon Gilmore thrown by Wilson. 

Falcons (2-2) at Buccaneers (2-2), 1 p.m:

Forget about if Tom Brady’s shoulder is injured, since he wouldn’t tell anyone. Tampa Bay’s defense was a worry after allowing 41 points against Kansas City on Sunday night, and the running game needs to aid Brady who shouldn’t be passing 52 times per game whether his shoulder is ailing or not. Brady will attempt to prevent his first 3 game winless streak since 2002. Atlanta has shown to find their identity a little as the Falcons are 2-2 and won both of their games by four points or less. Jury is still out on how consistent the Falcons will be.

In an upcoming ruling, Georgia’s Supreme Court will weigh in on a claim brought by Athens-Clarke District Attorney Deborah Gonzalez, arguing that top prosecutors are exempt from the state’s open records laws. The case involves assertions that the trial court overlooked a constitutional provision in denying Gonzalez’s motion to dismiss an open records complaint, mirroring similar immunity arguments made by Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis in a separate case related to the 2020 presidential election interference.
