1. Brady returns– The last time we saw Tom Brady on the field, it was in Denver for the chance to represent the AFC in the Super Bowl and things didn’t go as he planned. The suspension was issued to him once again and he was going to fight it but decided to just sit for the first four games of the year. The Patriots won three of the first four games without their legendary quarterback and now he returns on his second “revenge tour”. He makes his season debut against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday.
2. Broncos host Falcons– Denver is 4-0 and I think people are starting to discuss them more than what we were hearing as the season approached. Trevor Siemian is playing well and the defense has picked up where they left off. The Falcons are 3-1 and Julio Jones is coming off the game of his career. I really like how their offense has looked. The offensive line has given Matt Ryan time to throw, he’s spreading the ball around and there’s been a balance. I can’t wait to see these two teams battle.
3. Arkansas welcomes the Tide to town– Alabama is rolling once again and it’s no shocker at all. I honestly think this is the strongest they’ve ever looked and it will take a team outside the SEC to dethrone them. Arkansas has played well this year. They bounced back nicely after a tough loss to Texas A&M. Now it’s time to turn the page and get ready for Nick Saban’s Alabama Crimson Tide in a big SEC battle on Saturday night.
4. Tennessee face Texas A&M– Did you see the end of that Tennessee and Georgia game last week? It’s really not over until it’s over! Joshua Dobbs threw a Hail Mary after Georgia first struck with their own. Tennessee has looked to turn the page after a rocky start to start the season and Texas A&M has also handled their business. You have to love SEC football and these two will battle each other on Saturday afternoon.
5. Vikings to face Texans– Let’s go back once again and look at the Vikings last three victories. They’ve defeated two Super Bowl winning quarterbacks in Aaron Rodgers and Eli Manning and they completely dominated Cam Newton. The Vikings are off to their best start since 2009 when some guy named Brett was their starter. This is the best defense in the NFL not named the Denver Broncos. The Texans got by the Titans without J.J. Watt on Sunday and will look to improve to 4-1.
