Bills-Jaguars to be Blacked Out

This is interesting for two reasons. First, this is the first NFL game all season to be blacked out in the home market due to lack of ticket sales. Second, both of the guys who were supposed to chart this game for us live in Buffalo and can't actually see the game. If anyone out there either lives in Jacksonville or has Sunday Ticket and isn't busy watching another game at the time, can you please email charting-at-footballoutsiders.com? Shawn Krest, who charts games for us and for a Buffalo sports blog as well, is willing to reimburse for the copy of the tape or DVD.

Ronnie Brown will be missing for an indeterminate period of time after having surgery on his left hand.

For those of you who read the headline and had your heart stop for a moment as you pondered the deleterious effects of Ralph Brown's injury on your IDP league, I apologize.

ESPN's All Under-the-Radar Team

Can we do an Extra Point on something that isn't linkable? Len Pasquarelli has put together a great all-star team of lesser-known players over at ESPN.com. The rules are simple: players must be in their third year or later, they cannot be first-round picks, and you cannot include anyone who has been to the Pro Bowl as a positional player. This is the sort of thing that should spur awesome FO reader debate -- except it's a flash doo-hickey and I have no idea how to link it. So, sorry ESPN, we're going to discuss your team without actually sending you traffic.

UPDATE: Jay Cutler to Start Week 13

Am I the only person who thinks benching Jake Plummer for rookie Jay Cutler is a bit premature? Since, you know, the Broncos have a really good chance to make the playoffs.

(UPDATE: 9pm Wednesday night, this now points to an NFL.com article where Adam Schefter reports that the Broncos will start Plummer this week, but will replace him with Cutler beginning with the Sunday night game against the Seahawks on December 3.)
