TR on ESPN: Talking NFL Line Movement With Chad Millman

Our smoothest operator Tom Federico sat down (OK, more like talked on the phone, but “sat down” sounds so much more serious, doesn’t it?) with ESPN’s Chad Millman yesterday to answer some questions that Mr. Millman had about this week’s NFL line changes.

The conversation led to this informative post on Millman’s Insider blog: NFL Week 6 Line Moves.

One thing we feel we should note, which didn’t make it into the post: a portion of the line change in the Houston Texans at Baltimore Ravens game is likely due to the news that Mario Williams was placed on the injured reserve list. While individual injuries are seldom backbreaking in the NFL — with the notable exception of one Peyton ManningMario Williams was a force for the Texans, and will be tough to replace.
