1. Brock Osweiler returns to Denver– He did a good job filling in for Peyton Manning last year when Peyton was hurt and led them to a 5-2 record in their final seven games including a win over an unbeaten Patriots last November. When Peyton decided to call it a career in March, Brock was the heir apparent to replace a legend. He decided to take the money and signed with the Houston Texans. On Monday night, he returns as a visitor to face the team that drafted him. It’ll be quite the homecoming and I mean that in the most sarcastic way possible.
2. Undefeated teams battle in Tuscaloosa– Everybody thought Tennessee was going to play Alabama tough and they pretty much gave up and let Alabama walk all over them. I truly feel Texas A&M will give the Tide a challenge and remain with them throughout the game. Two undefeated’s to battle and A&M would want nothing more than to beat Bama at home. They’ve done it before and they feel they can do it again.
3. Eagles host Vikings– They are 5-0 and have been the talk of the NFL so far. The Minnesota Vikings are one of, if not the best team in the NFC and are proving themselves week in and week out. After the quick start by the Eagles, they’ve lost two in a row and Carson Wentz has finally looked like a rookie in his last two games. This should be a good one on Sunday when the Eagles welcome an unbeaten Vikings team to town.
4. Seahawks and Cardinals to battle on Sunday night– These two know each other really well. Arizona has always played the Seahawks tough and vice versa. On Sunday night, they’ll meet again in an early NFC West showdown. After a 1-3 start, the Cardinals have won their last two and in the beginning, Seattle struggled to get anything going offensively and now it looks as if they’ve solved their issues.
5. Steelers host Patriots– The Steelers will be without Ben for the foreseeable future after tearing his meniscus. This was one I was really looking forward too. Two of the best quarterbacks in the league with Super Bowls rings between them. Six of them to be exact. Brady and the Patriots are on a roll right now.
