3:05 pm CT – NY Jets (4-2) at Oakland (3-3)
The Jets nearly pulled off last week against the Patriots, and a strong showing from Derek Carr found the Raiders toppling the Chargers. What I’m trying to say is that this is actually a better matchup than many may give it credit for. Both teams are finally finding ways to put points up on the board, and this could be a quiet shootout.
3:25 pm CT – Seattle (3-4) at Dallas (2-4)
Once again, America is
wanting see Dallas on the big stage. The problem is the game itself isn’t exactly interesting. Since Tony Romo has been out of the picture, the Cowboys have lost four straight games. Matt Cassel won’t beat the Seahawks in any lifetime I know of.
Sunday Night Football: Green Bay (6-0) at Denver (6-0)
In the game of the week, two unbeaten squads face off for what promises to be a very entertaining contest. It’s Aaron Rodgers versus Peyton Manning. The only problem is that Manning isn’t exactly your quarterback of the past. He’s struggled heavily, throwing 2 touchdowns to 7 interceptions in the last three contests. However, their defense is what is keeping hope alive. Their pass rush against arguably the league’s top quarterback is always something you won’t want to miss.
Monday Night Football: Indianapolis (3-4) at Carolina (6-0)
NFL Week 8 concludes with Andrew Luck taking on the undefeated Panthers. Unfortunately, the Colts are at the low point of their season. Veterans are being called out by the Indy Star, front office personnel are having heated exchanges, and this team is completely underachieving. Facing their second straight NFC South foe won’t bring them good fortune this week, as the Panthers are really playing strong football.
