Is there any better weekend in pro football? No way.

We get to see eight above average to premium clubs, most of which had to scratch and claw their way here, fighting low expectations and/or injuries. Of course, the Indianapolis Colts stick out in both categories, with injuries on both lines, the Chuck Pagano situation, as well as the low bar set for the team once Peyton Manning was getting eHarmony'd by seemingly every franchise back in the spring. He settled on Denver. The Colts settled on moving on.

Oh, have they. Yet, Indy isn't the only team that's teeing it up this weekend. With the eight clubs come eight different storylines, and eight million dissenting opinions on who's advancing ... and who's not.
