1. Cowboys and Giants battle on Sunday night– When the 2016 season started up in September, these two met up and Terrence Williams made a rookie mistake by staying bounds when his team had no timeouts left. That was the one loss the Cowboys were handed this season. Ever since then, they’ve won 11 games in a row. The Giants had a winning streak of their own going before it was snapped in Pittsburgh. This is by far the biggest game of the year for both teams as the NFC East has come down to these two rivals. Sunday night will definitely be a grand ole time in East Rutherford.
2. Chiefs host Raiders in a huge showdown– It’s been the best division in football this year, the AFC West. Oakland is 10-2 and they’ve clinched their first winning season since 2002 and they keep winning. Kansas City has bounced back nicely after a tough loss at home to the Buccaneers a few weeks back. They’ve won two big road games over Denver and Atlanta and sit at 9-3. A rivalry renewed has never looked so good. Thursday night football will be a big one for these AFC West rivals.
3. Packers host Seattle– When we last saw these two play last season, it was after a heartbreaking NFC title game loss for the Packers and Rodgers had his way with the Seahawks. They’ve now won two in a row after that four-game skid. Seattle handled its business against the Panthers on Sunday night, but they lost a key guy on defense in Earl Thomas who broke his leg and will be done for the rest of the season. It’s always fun when these two meet up.
4. Ravens travel to Foxboro on Monday night– This has become a rivalry over the last couple of years. The Ravens have gone into Foxborough twice during the playoffs and have eliminated Brady and the Patriots. The Ravens aren’t afraid of New England and Dean Pees knows this New England offense very well. The Pats are 10-2 and are closing in on another division title once again.
5. Heisman Trophy Presentation set for Saturday– Another young man will join a very prestigious club on Saturday night. Lamar Jackson, Deshaun Watson, Baker Mayfield, Jabrill Peppers and Dede Westbrook are the finalists.
