Extra Mustard’s Thursday Night Football drinking game for Week 3

Thursday September 24th, 2015

Welcome back!

Last week’s drinking game was such an aggressively mild success Extra Mustard is back with a fresh batch for Week 3. As we noted in the previous installment, Thursday Night Football is usually a slopfest, so you may as well join in. We also encourage—no—we mandate you to drink responsibly.

This week, the New York Giants are taking on the Washington Redskins in a matchup worthy of your cheapest beer:

Responsibly sip your drink when

  • Someone mentions the Pope
  • Tom Coughlin is shown angrily reacting to something
  • Eli Manning does his weird shoulder shrug
  • Someone mentions Kirk Cousins’s potential
  • A Giants safety goes down with an injury
  • Someone says “the Meadowlands”
  • Cousins airmails a receiver
  • Any time Jim Nantz reads a promo for 2 Broke Girls or The Big Bang Theory

  • You hear the phrase “storied franchise”

Refill your drink when

  • Manning throws an interception
  • Cousins throws an interception
  • An announcer tries to mask the horrible offensive play by describing the game as a “defensive struggle”
  • You’re shown a montage of Odell Beckham Jr. catches

Pour one out when

  • Someone mentions Robert Griffin’s rookie season followed by a shot of him on the sideline

Responsibly finish your drink when

  • The announcers have a Jason Pierre-Paul discussion
  • The Giants lose a fourth quarter lead
