So there's a football game tonight... perhaps you've heard of it?  Super something or other?

Anyway: Broncos vs. Seahawks.

Kick-off is scheduled for around 5:30 CST, with TV coverage from FOX (yes, that means Joe Buck and Troy Aikman).  You can watch it online using FOX Sports Go (no log-in needed after kickoff, apparently).

The Broncos are currently -2.5 favorites.

If prop bets are your thing... good news!
