Extra Mustard’s Thursday Night Football drinking game for Week 9.
Welcome to the latest installment of Extra Mustard’s Thursday Night Football drinking game. Week 9 presents the forever-awful Cleveland Browns against the wait-until-the-playoffs Cincinnati Bengals.
The Thursday night game moves from CBS to NFL Network this week, because even the NFL doesn’t want too many people to watch this. Cleveland is replacing Josh McCown with Johnny Manziel at quarterback, which sounds exciting until you realize Manziel lost a quarterback competition to Josh McCown. Andy Dalton may be good, though.
We don’t have high hopes for this game. Fortunately, our drinking game is here to keep you involved.
