The San Diego Chargers and Kansas City Chiefs start off a great week for NFL matchups. This week like the weeks before will feature many marquee match-ups. We hope you enjoy our selections. Please feel free to express your opinion about our choices for games of the week.
Miami Dolphins @ Indianapolis Colts, 1:00PM, ET
Both teams are led by two rookie quarterbacks in Ryan Tannehill and Andrew Luck. Both teams are playing better than expected and are looking forward to taking the next step towards a playoff berth. All eyes will be on Andrew Luck and Ryan Tannehill. It is rare to see two rookie quarterbacks in a head to head matchup with so many implications this early into the season. Will there be a rivalry developed between both players and both teams similar to Peyton Manning’s Colts and Tom Brady’s Patriots? We shall see how things will shake up for their careers, but in this contest I am going with the Dolphins. With the Dolphins stout defense and solid running game it will be too much to overcome for Luck and the Colts.
Pittsburgh Steelers @ New York Giants, 4:25PM, ET
Both quarterbacks were drafted in the 2004 draft, and both Eli Manning and Ben Roethlisberger have two super bowl rings. The Steelers are hot, and look to continue the trend by beating the Giants. The Giants have been playing great football, but with so many distractions due to Hurricane Sandy I think they will fall short against the Steelers in a defensive game.
Dallas Cowboys @ Atlanta Falcons, 8:20PM, ET (Sunday Night Football)
The Falcons are flying high, and the Cowboys are playing their usual brand of inconsistent football. This game is crucial for the Cowboys. If the Cowboys fall to 3-5 they will be on their way out of playoff contention after a few more losses. It’s hard to trust Tony Romo to win this ball game, but it may be a trap game for the Falcons. Somehow Tony Romo will mess the game up and hand it to the dirty birds. Falcons win a close one.
Philadelphia Eagles @ New Orleans Saints, 8:30PM, ET, (Monday Night Football)
Michael Vick needs to save his job, season, and Andy Reid’s job, and Drew Brees needs to save the Saints Season. Both defenses are not that great, but something tells me Andy Reid will finally use LeSean McCoy the way he is supposed to be used. By running McCoy it will keep Brees off the field which means that he won’t have too many chances attacking Nnamdi Asomugha & Co. I know it’s close to impossible to win playing against the Saints while they are at home, but the defense is so bad I don’t see them winning. Eagles win, and are finally headed in the right direction.
