The Green Bay Packers started out slowly, but they have won seven of their last eight games. The Chicago Bears started out red hot, but they have lost four of their last five games. Green Bay picked up a win against the Bears earlier this year. Chicago is only one game behind in the division, and this is a huge game for them. Can the Bears pick up the win in front of their home crowd at Soldier Field?
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 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 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 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.
