The San Francisco 49ers have been in the news lately mainly for their quarterback controversy, but it’s obvious that the 49ers are one of the top contenders for the Super Bowl this year. Public opinion polls say that NFL fans think the 49ers have the best chance of any team at winning the title this season. The Miami Dolphins have been very competitive of late. Can Miami hand San Francisco its second straight 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 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 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 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.
