The Arizona Cardinals started the season 4-0, but they have now dropped four games in a row. The Green Bay Packers started 2-3, but they have won three straight to go to 5-3 on the season. Arizona will travel to Lambeau Field this weekend to try to get back on track. It certainly won’t be an easy task for the Cardinals.
John Skelton was hurt early in the year, but now Kevin Kolb is out so Skelton is back as the Cardinals starting quarterback.
The Denver Broncos are fresh off a huge win at home against the New Orleans Saints. The Cincinnati Bengals are coming off a bye week. Cincinnati was beaten by Pittsburgh at home two weeks ago. The Bengals have lost three straight games, and badly need a win to stay in the playoff race. Denver seems to be getting better every week, and there is no doubt that Peyton Manning is making this team far more dangerous.
The Oakland Raiders and the Kansas City Chiefs are two teams that don’t get along very well. They say familiarity breeds contempt, and these two teams see an awful lot of each other. Both of these teams have gotten off to very slow starts this season. Oakland is 0-3 on the road this year, while the Chiefs are 0-3 at home. Someone has to pick up a win here, but who will it be?
The Atlanta Falcons are the only undefeated team in the NFL. The Philadelphia Eagles may have more pressure on them right now than any other team in the NFL. The Eagles have been good coming off a bye week under Andy Reid, and they’ll need to be very good in this one. Who has the edge in what may be the biggest game of the weekend?
The AFC East couldn’t possibly be any more interesting right now. All four teams are tied at 3-3 going into this weekend. The Jets have been blasted by the media many times, but they are still tied for first in the division. Still, the Jets have a lot to prove, and they could prove a lot if they could find a way to beat the Patriots in Foxboro this weekend. This is always an intense game, and I don’t expect this one to be any different.
The Detroit Lions have been one of the biggest disappointments in the NFL so far this year. Philadelphia is off to a better start than last year, but the Eagles still have a lot of room for improvement. Big things are expected from both of these teams. The Eagles look to bounce back from a rough loss at Pittsburgh last week, while the Lions had a bye week last weekend. Let’s take a closer look at this one.
It was an emotional hard-fought victory for the Colts last week. The Colts trailed Green Bay 21-3, but they came back to defeat the Packers 30-27 on a last-minute touchdown. The New York Jets played much better than they have in recent weeks, but they still lost last Monday night to the Houston Texans. Will the Colts stay on a roll or can the Jets turn their season around and start a win streak?
The Philadelphia Eagles were supposed to be the Dream Team in the NFL last year, and they didn’t even make the playoffs. This year’s version of the Eagles haven’t gotten quite as much publicity, but they are off to a solid 3-1 start. Pittsburgh is off to an uncharacteristically slow 1-2 start to the season. This intra-state matchup will be a big one for both teams. Let’s take a look at this battle.
The Baltimore Ravens look like one of the best teams in the NFL through the first four games of the season. Some expected a big bounce back season from Kansas City, but it hasn’t happened thus far. The Chiefs are still looking for their first win at home. Kansas City always has a nice home field advantage. Can Baltimore go on the road and win or will it be Kansas City getting their first home win of the season?
The Atlanta Falcons are one of only three unbeaten teams left in the NFL after three weeks. The Falcons blasted San Diego last week on the road, and now they return home to face a divisional foe. Carolina was blitzed at home last week by the New York Giants, but the Panthers do have the ability to be a difficult matchup for the Falcons. Let’s take a look at this NFC South matchup.
Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers were actually favored last Thursday night at home against the dinged up Giants, but New York won 36-7 in an embarrassing game for the Panthers.
