Since 17 is an odd number, the NFL has slightly nudged past the halfway marker in regular season action. Week 9 promises a few notable contests including what is now deemed as “the best rivalry in football.”
Jets at Bills: The Bills can afford a loss in this game while the Jets are hitting a critical juncture of their season. This marks the first of two consecutive division outings for the Flight Crew. If they want to reach the playoffs, a split involving their next two games (at Bills, vs. Patriots) is imperative.
Bucs at Saints: Weirdo stat of the week…Did you know Drew Brees has thrown 32 interceptions in his last 24 games?!? I find this remarkable. What happened to his marksmanship? The Bucs have a chance to at least claim a share of the NFC South lead.
Broncos at Raiders: When you mix Raiders fans with Tebowing, only good things can happen.
Bengals at Titans: Don’t look now but with a win, the Bengals will be 6-2, which will be good enough for second place in the AFC North by Sunday night’s end. The Red Rifle lurks in the shadows.
Giants at Patriots: Yeah, we know. The Helmet Catch. Woof.
Packers at Chargers: Phil Rivers is not likely to have the “worse day ever” but Sunday against Green Bay should be rather lousy.
Ravens at Steelers: While I enjoy Ravens/Steelers, it’s never made my “piss hot.” This is one of those last men standing type games. Pittsburgh will be out for blood after their embarrassing Week 1 loss.
