1. Raiders host Rival Broncos in a huge AFC West battle– For the last few years, the Broncos and Raiders haven’t been the most talked about like it was in the 90’s because the Raiders have struggled so much over the past few seasons and it was a one-sided affair. That’s all changing now and for the first time in quite some time, these two will be featured in a primetime game on Sunday night. The black hole will truly be rocking.
2. Alabama travels to Baton Rouge– It’s time for the annual showdown between Alabama and those Tigers of LSU. I remember last year’s battle like it was yesterday. Leonard Fournette was the projected Heisman Trophy winner and he was shut down by a Nick Saban-coached defense and that was the game when Derrick Henry dominated and became the favorite to win the award. They’ve played some classics over the years and I’m expecting the same thing in Baton Rouge on Saturday night.
3. Eagles look to bounce back against the Giants– The NFC East will be on display once again. The Eagles lost a tough game on Sunday night to the division leading Cowboys and the offense is struggling right now. Carson Wentz is looking like a rookie after such a fast start. The Giants, I don’t really know what to say about them because one minute, it looks as if they got it right and then the next, they struggle to keep the ball and the defense can’t get off the field. This one will be a dogfight like it always is when these two meet.
4. Ohio State welcomes Nebraska to town– Nebraska fought hard in their game with Wisconsin, but fell short. To some, this may be the sloppiest team with more than five wins in the country because they haven’t looked great at times and Saturday, their issues all caught up to them. Let’s talk Ohio State now because they had problems of their own with Northwestern as they escaped a four-point victory to get back into the winning column. On Saturday night, these two will be in a big game for both divisions in the Big Ten.
5. Ravens look to stop the struggles against the Steelers– After such a hot start and many considering them to be the best team in the AFC, the Steelers have struggled and not only have they lost their last two games, they lost Ben Roethlisberger to a knee injury. The Ravens also started 3-0 and since then, they have lost four games in a row. No matter what happens with these two, they will always hate each other and want to beat each other up on the field. There’s absolutely no love with these franchises.
