NFL Sunday Week VIII

Sunday is upon us and with it comes a full slate of great games! It all starts at 9:30am with yet another matchup in London to let you get off the blocks and racing for a fun-filled NFL Sunday.

Washington Redskins vs Cincinnati Bengals (London) 9:30am  FOX

Kirk Cousins and Andy Dalton line up for a western gunfight, European style. Both quarterbacks are on track to pass for over 4,000 yards this season and if the jet lag doesn’t drag ’em down, today will be another land grab for each of them.

AFC GAME OF THE WEEK: New England Patriots at Buffalo Bills 1:00pm CBS

Apparently New England hasn’t lost to the same team twice in one year since the early 70s. But, before the Bills went to Foxboro a few weeks back, the Pats hadn’t lost at home in a long time either. Look for the Ryan brothers to try and shut down Emperor Belichick and Darth Brady as the NFL Sith Lords look to avenge themselves against their division rivals.

Arizona Cardinals at Carolina Panthers 1:00pm FOX

Two months ago, this game was circled as an NFC Championship preview. Now, the two contenders have combined for only four wins on the year and neither looks like the powerhouse they were expected to become this season.

New York Jets at Cleveland Browns 1:00pm CBS

It’s really hard to try and make this game sound exciting for anyone not from either fan base, so we won’t bother…

Detroit Lions at Houston Texans 1:00pm CBS

A tale of two teams heading in opposite directions. Houston is one of the worst winning record teams in the league and the worst division leader. Detroit is on a three-game winning streak, but it’s the Lions, so they’re going to stumble sooner or later.

Kansas City Chiefs at Indianapolis Colts 1:00pm CBS

Two teams trying to take the crown in their respective divisions. Andrew Luck is the most talented player in this game, but KC’s roster is far more loaded than Indys. If the Colts aren’t careful, this could turn into a blowout very quickly.

Seattle Seahawks at New Orleans Saints 1:00pm FOX

The Big Easy might make things large and hard for the visiting Seahawks. While New Orleans hasn’t shown a huge defense this year, Drew Brees is still gobbling up yards like Pacman eats dots.

Oakland Raiders at Tampa Bay Buccaneers 1:00pm CBS

A rematch of the last time either team went to the Super Bowl with two teams that are nothing like their conference champion predecessors. Two hot young quarterbacks should define this one, but expect Oakland to pull it out in the end.

San Diego Chargers at Denver Broncos 4:05pm CBS

Coming off an emotional Monday Night Football victory against Brock Osweiler’s Houston Texans, Denver might not have it’s batteries full in time to drain the rising Chargers. The AFC West is proving to be the toughest division in football and this game should showcase that in spades.

Green Bay Packers at Atlanta Falcons 4:25pm FOX

If these two offenses play to their fullest, this game should be one for the ages. A hot handed Matt Ryan has nearly 1,000 more passing yards than Aaron Rodgers as of this morning, but Atlanta has floundered a bit recently. The Packers have been floundering all season, making just about everyone scratch their head, wondering what’s wrong.

NFC GAME OF THE WEEK: Philadelphia Eagles at Dallas Cowboys 8:30pm NBC

The historic first time meeting of these two franchises when being led by rookie quarterbacks happens tonight on Sunday Night Football. Can Dak Prescott prove he’s better than Carson Wentz? Can Wentz get back on track and show he was truly worthy of the #2 overall pick? Tune in tonight with millions of your closest friends to find out.
