The return of McCarthy. Dallas head coach Mike McCarthy returned to Green Bay this weekend to get a street named after him as a Super Bowl winner and was fired after the 2018 season. Although struggling, this still feels like a big game because of the teams involved and the reunion of McCarthy and quarterback Aaron Rodgers. You’ll have time to find a hamburger from one cow.
dream field. Is this the start of a takeoff for second-year Chicago quarterback Justin Fields? At least, offensive coordinator Luke Getzie says the Bears’ best chance right now is to give Fields many rushing attempts. His 178 yards last week were part of a stunning ground performance in a 35-32 loss to Miami. With his passing ability, watch out.
Best Coast? Outside of Seattle, no one in the NFC West has played particularly well. That includes the reigning Super Bowl champion Rams, who hope quarterback Matthew Stafford will clear concussion protocol in time to play on Sunday. I was. The 3-5 Rams will play against the 3-6 Arizona He Team. The loser will be far away from the playoff picture. Both teams are also on Denver’s schedule this year. Arizona he will be held on December 18th and Los Angeles on Christmas Day.
Sunday to Saturday. Almost any story that might have made up a surprise in the NFL this year takes a backseat to Indianapolis hiring Jeff Saturday as interim head coach straight from ESPN studios after firing Frank Reich. What if you lead Indy to victory over Josh McDaniels’ Raiders? Colts owner Jim Irsay said he liked the fact that Saturday had no coaching experience. I don’t think he was aware my Twitter DM of him was open.
Kels again. don’t look now But Kansas City tight end Travis Kelce is putting together another monster season. Will join. His current 17-his-game pace is 121 catches for 1,400 yards and 15 touchdowns. After catching his four touchdowns on October 10 against the Raiders, he averaged 103 yards over his last three games.
First round picks released. It’s always interesting to see who gets released after the trade deadline. This year, two first-rounders are on the list. Green Bay acquired him after Raiders former safety he Jonathan Abram was waived. Meanwhile, the Chargers defensively released his lineman Jerry Tillery.
game of the week
Minnesota at Buffalo
This season, everything so far has come close to the Vikings. The 7-1 group, led by first-year head coach Kevin O’Connell, has to go to Buffalo, but could miss MVP candidate Josh Allen, who is suffering from an elbow injury.Bills is no easy task to defeat, but it certainly becomes manageable once Case Keenum is started. Meanwhile, Minnesota has already gained Vice his grip on his NFC North, and could take an upset victory as a 3.5-point underdog to further cement its status as a No. 1 seed contender.
Bills 24, Vikings 21
rock of the week
Washington in Philadelphia
Meanwhile, the Eagles currently occupy the top spot in the NFC as the only team to remain undefeated in the NFL. This week they host a Washington team with organizational issues. Coach Ron Rivera may be able to keep the group focused on the field, but Philadelphia is the 11-point favorite Monday night, and every week the quarterback suspects Jalen Hurts and the group why. It’s getting smaller. There’s no reason to think he can’t win at least his next three games in Washington, Indianapolis and Green Bay before visiting the Giants against Tennessee.
Eagles 31, Commanders 13
upset of the week
Seattle vs Tampa Bay
Germany’s first NFL game. Hopefully the Broncos make it to Munich at some point. It sounds like the best adventure. For some reason, betting on Tom Brady on the international stage seems foolhardy. The league made sure to bring the Marquee quarterback to the International Series this year. This fall, Aaron Rodgers lost to the Giants and Russell Wilson defeated the Jaguars. They are his 2.5-point underdogs, but they seem to have gotten a special sauce this year.
Seahawks 27, Buccaneers 24
