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 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 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.
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 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?
Two young quarterbacks will square off as the Jacksonville Jaguars travel to Indianapolis to take on the Colts this weekend. Blaine Gabbert has never really shown that he can lead this Jaguars team to where they need to go, but he is still young. Andrew Luck had a poor first game in Chicago, but his home opener last weekend against Minnesota was terrific. Luck came through in the clutch to help the Colts pull out a last-second win in that game. Which quarterback will lead their team to victory here?
The New York Jets shocked everyone by putting up 48 points in the season opener against Buffalo. Maybe the Jets offense is much better than people thought, or maybe it was just poor competition. The Steelers defense is one of the best in the league, so the Jets will get a major test here. The last four meetings between these two teams have been decided by five points or less.
