The New York Giants beat up on the Atlanta Falcons 24-2 en route to their Super Bowl win last year. Atlanta has the best record in the NFL, but the Falcons still really need a postseason victory. This one won’t get them over the hump, but you can bet that the Falcons still want some revenge for last year’s embarrassing playoff loss.
The Pittsburgh Steelers and the Baltimore Ravens always have hard hitting contests against each other. Big Ben has typically owned this series, but for the second straight time the Steelers won’t have Ben Roethlisberger’s services when they take on the Baltimore Ravens. Joe Flacco and the Ravens have a nice cushion in the difficult AFC North, and this is a great opportunity for them to put even more room between them and their competition. Can they take advantage of this opportunity?
The Indianapolis Colts have played inspired football all year, and they are accomplishing things that most thought was out of the realm of possibilities for the team this season. Detroit has been one of the biggest disappointments in the NFL. The Lions sit at 4-7, and they cannot afford any more losses if they want to have any chance at making the playoffs. Indianapolis needs this game for playoff positioning as well.
The Chicago Bears jumped out to a 7-1 start, and they had a nice lead in the NFC North. The team has dropped two straight, and they are now tied atop the division with the Green Bay Packers. Minnesota is only one game behind, and the Vikings will be looking to even things up with the Bears as they visit Soldier Field this weekend. Let’s take a look at this key divisional matchup.
The San Diego Chargers are off to another one of their patented slow starts. Once again the hot seat is getting really hot for Norv Turner. Denver is off to a 6-3 start under the direction of quarterback Peyton Manning. The Broncos beat the Chargers last month in San Diego after trailing 24-0 at halftime, so they’ll be looking for the season sweep in this one.
After four weeks, both of these teams were unbeaten. Since then, these two teams have gone in very different directions. The Arizona Cardinals have lost five straight games, and they now sit at 4-5 on the season. Atlanta was unbeaten until last week’s tough 31-27 loss at New Orleans. The Falcons will look to return to their winning ways as they return home for this one. Arizona is just looking to get off the mat. Let’s take a look at this NFC matchup.
The Atlanta Falcons are unbeaten halfway through the season. Atlanta has been a great regular season team over the last couple years, but they haven’t been able to have any success in the playoffs. The Falcons are looking to put it all together this year. The team they take on this week may be 3-5, but the New Orleans Saints are clearly a very dangerous team. Look for a great game in the SuperDome this Sunday.
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.
There are only six unbeaten teams left in the NFL, and two of them square off this weekend in San Diego. The Chargers have gotten a horribly slow start year after year for so long, but this year San Diego is off to a quick start. Atlanta held off Denver on Monday Night Football, and the Falcons look like one of the better teams in the NFC. Which team will start 3-0 this season?
Matt Ryan has yet to have any success in the postseason, but it seems like he and the Falcons have a team to do some damage this year.
