The Colts will open the 2006 season on Sunday Night on NBC against the NY Football Giants at the Meadowlands. It will mark the first time that two brothers will start opposite each other at QB.
Other games of note:
- The Dolphins will visit the World Champion Steelers on Thursday night to open the season.
- ESPN will start the season with a Monday night football double-header: Vikings at Redskins at 7:00 pm EDT, and at 10:15 pm EDT, Chargers will play the Raiders.
- Thanksgiving will feature 3 games: Dolphins at Lions; Bucs at Cowboys; Broncos at Chiefs.
I'm a little upset Colts/Cowboys are not the Thanksgiving game. Oh well.
