1. Florida State hosts Notre Dame on Saturday night– We’ve been waiting on this one for a very long time. Notre Dame has been so dominant on the defensive side of the ball. Almost similar to the year when they went to the National Championship. Having Golson in the line up has given this team the spark it has needed. Florida State isn’t that powerhouse like they were last season. They’re still a good football team and one of the best in the country but I see Jameis making more mistakes as far as turning the ball over and the defense has given up some big plays. Two great coaches, two good quarterbacks, two unbeaten teams. This should be a good one.
2. Peyton aims to make history Sunday night against San Francisco– Another record will be set for one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time. Peyton is two touchdown passes away from tying Brett Favre in touchdowns passes at 508 and he needs one to become the all-time leader in touchdown passes. The 49ers are starting to find their rhythm and many have stated that this is a potential Super Bowl preview. The big question will be can the 49ers secondary keep up with the Broncos prolific receiving core?
3. Cowboys look to keep winning against Giants– The Cowboys are coming off their biggest win of the season. They didn’t just win up there, they smacked Seattle in the mouth. They should feel very confident after a win like that and they feel they can beat just about anybody anywhere. The Giants are looking to bounce back after being embarrassed on Sunday night and they will look to begin life after losing Victor Cruz for the rest of the season after injuring his knee. Dallas swept the Giants last season.
4. Chargers host Chiefs– The Chargers are rolling right now. You aren’t hearing much about them because of the division they play in and a certain guy named Peyton Manning. Branden Oliver has come in and become that player similar to Danny Woodhead. Rivers is having one of the best seasons of his career. The Chiefs aren’t the team they were last season but they can still be competitive in the division.
5. Colts host Bengals– After an 0-2 start, the Colts have won four games in a row and Andrew Luck has simply been the reason. Their defense hasn’t been too bad either even without Robert Mathis. The Bengals didn’t win or lose the other day, they tied and they will be without Marvin Jones for the rest of the season and A.J. Green will more than likely be out for this one with that toe injury.
