If you don't enjoy the things I write about — entertainment, nightlife, music, booze, gadgets, sports, Playboy models and more —you're probably dead. I enjoy when you read what I write. (And, yes, it's my real name. Stop asking.)

Two battles between unbeaten teams and a rematch of last season's AFC title game highlight the Week 3 NFL schedule. Here's a preview of all of the week's action:
Thursday, Sept. 20
NY Giants at Carolina Panthers — 8:20 p.m.
Bank of America Stadium, Charlotte, NC
After rallying to a win behind Eli Manning's 510 passing yards, the Giants (1-1) face a short week of preparation for Carolina (1-1) and their versatile quarterback, Cam Newton. Expect New York to pressure Newton and respect the Panthers' solid running attack. Though Giants receiver Hakeem Nicks was ailing after last Sunday's win, he should be in uniform on Thursday. New York running back Ahmad Bradshaw is less likely to play.
Matt Ryan passed for 219 yards and two touchdowns, as the Atlanta Falcons took advantage of three first-quarter interceptions by Peyton Manning to beat the Denver Broncos, 27-21, in the Georgia Dome on Monday night.
