While hardly marked for the NFL’s basement before the season started, the Bills certainly were and are not a trendy pick to win the AFC in 2014.
The Dallas Cowboys battle the St. Louis Rams in 2014, who have a backup quarterback leading them. Here is a look at the Rams heading into the big week three game.
The first NFL regular season game played at Levi Stadium has the San Francisco 49ers hosting the Chicago Bears. On paper, Chicago is very similar to San Francisco’s week 1 opponent the Dallas Cowboys. The Bears have an offense that can score points at will, an inconsistent passer and a less than spectacular defense.
The Dallas Cowboys struggled in their Week 1 loss, and in Week 2 they face a very hot Tennessee Titans team. Here is a look at the Titans heading into this big game.
Week Two looks tougher for the Oakland Raiders now that the Houston Texans posted their first win in almost a year. Can the Raiders win their home opener? Sure, they can, if both the offense and the defense play better than they did in Week One against the New York Jets on the road.
The Oakland Raiders, projected to finish last in the AFC West division this year by pretty much everyone, open the 2014 regular season next Sunday against the New York Jets on the road, and it could be the beginning of a long season for the Silver & Black.
The 49ers and Cowboys meet in Week 1, and the winner will be the team whose defense steps up. While the 49ers defense is top tier, they will be without some key players and going against an elite offense.
Both Patriots Nation and Broncos Country are looking forward to Brady/Manning XV. The rest of the planet will probably enjoy the game, too.
Week five of the NFL season is here and so are my picks…it pretty much just seems like I’m going blind here, now.
There is a lot of focus on players trying to purposely take out opposing players after the New Orleans Saints were severely punished for an organized bounty system. Baltimore Ravens safety Bernard Pollard doesn’t seem to be thinking of that as he issues a warning.
