Week 12 features five division games, two of which are part of the Thanksgiving Day triple header. NFC rivalries start Turkey Day, commencing with Minnesota at Detroit and then followed by Washington at Dallas. Sunday finishes with two AFC rivalry games that swapped places for Sunday Night Football. Originally the Patriots were scheduled to play the Jets on NBC. Thanks to Gang Green’s totaling more losses in their first ten games than they compiled in all of 2015, that game was removed from prime time. The Chiefs and Broncos both have seven victories already, tied for the most in the AFC with New England and Oakland. End result is that Kansas City at Denver will be the showcase game on Sunday night
Week 11 features three games between teams with winning records. In the early time slot on CBS 5-4 Baltimore travels to 8-1 Dallas; that is followed by 5-4 Philadelphia at 6-2-1 Seattle. NFL fans are treated to a rare quality game on Monday night as the 6-3 Texans face the 7-2 Oakland Raiders.
Week 10 is highlighted by the return of the New England Patriots to NFL action. The 7-1 Pats host the 5-2-1 Seattle Seahawks in a rematch of Super Bowl 49, arguably the best championship game in professional football history. The game kicks off at 8:30 pm eastern time at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough and will be televised on NBC.
There are only two home teams in Week 11 that are not favored. Not surprisingly these are the two worst teams in the NFL this season, San Francisco and Cleveland. The Forty Niners have the misfortune of being on New England’s schedule next week. The Patriot 2016 Vindication for Defamegate Tour travels to Santa Clara for a late afternoon game (4:25 pm ET) at Levi’s Stadium on Sunday November 20.
Best games of NFL Week 10 are Seahawks at Patriots, Cowboys at Steelers and Broncos at Saints.
The best game features the reigning Super Bowl champs versus a team that hasn’t been to the playoffs for 14 years. Denver travels to Oakland in a battle of AFC West rivals on Sunday night. Both clubs are 6-2, tied for the division lead – and one game behind the Patriots for home field in the AFC playoff race. The Raiders won the last meeting in December to snap an eight game losing streak to the Broncos.
CBS owns the NFL Week Nine doubleheader, and two games will dominate their network distribution. AN AFC North rivalry will air in most markets early, followed by a game featuring […]
Week 8 is highlighted by a chance for the New England Patriots to avenge their only loss of the 2016 season. The Pats travel to Buffalo seeking their fourth straight win while the Bills look to rebound from last week’s loss to Miami.
There are plenty of division rivalry games in Week Nine. The November schedule starts with Atlanta at Tampa Bay on Thursday 11/3. The Bucs shocked the Falcons 31-24 back in Week One at Atlanta. The Falcons rebounded to win four straight – including back-to-back victories over last season’s Super Bowl participants – but have lost their last two games.
Elsewhere Pittsburgh is at Baltimore for their biannual AFC North slugfest
The 6-1 New England Patriots and 4-3 Buffalo Bills renew their rivalry in Week 8. The AFC East clubs meet for the 114th time since the American Football League’s inception in 1960. The Patriots lead the series 69-43-1 and would love to avenge their sole loss on the 2016 season. The game kicks off at 1:00 pm eastern time at New Era Field in Orchard Park, New York.
On Monday the Patriots were listed as 6½ point road favorites.
Week 8 features a rematch between New England and Buffalo. In the first game between these two original AFL rivals at Foxboro the Bills handed the Patriots their sole loss of the season. With rookie Jacoby Brisset under center Buffalo dominated, shutting the Pats out 16-0. Even though the Patriots are on the road against a 4-2, the handicappers at the Westgate have listed the Pats as the second biggest favorite of the week.
The New England Patriots will take part in what will be the NFL’s biggest game next Sunday as the Pittsburgh Steelers host the Pats. The highly anticipated contest lost a bit of its luster with Ben Roethlisberger suffering an unfortunate knee injury. Big Ben will be out for a few weeks after undergoing surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee suffered in Sunday’s upset loss at Miami. The outcome of this game could go a long ways to determining who has home field advantage in the AFC playoffs next January.
The game kicks off at 4:25 pm eastern time Sunday. CBS will broadcast the game on every one of their affiliates in the United States with the exception (thanks to archaic NFL/FCC rules) of Atlanta and San Francisco. Jim Nantz will announce the play-by-play with Phil Simms will handling the commentary.
After an impressive 33-13 victory at Cleveland, the Patriots return to Foxboro to face the Cincinnati Bengals. Gillette Stadium will be rocking for the 2016 home debut of Tom Brady after his four game Article 46 exile. With clear skies and only a slight breeze perhaps the wine and cheese crowd might even remain in their red seats and brave the 67° forecasted temperature to view TB12 live, rather than retreating to the Putnam Club lounge.
The game kicks off at 1:00 pm eastern time with fairly extensive nationwide coverage by CBS. Ian Eagle will handle the play-by-play duties, with Dan Fouts adding in the commentary. Why these two are considered by CBS to be the number two broadcast team while the Greg Gumbel-Trent Green duo is third is baffling.
Week 7 features a highly anticipated game between two of the NFL’s best teams. The New England Patriots travel to Pittsburgh to take on the Steelers in a battle for supremacy in the AFC. Although the game is being played at Heinz Field, some Vegas handicappers have determined that the Patriots are a formidable enough team to negate the hometown advantage at Heinz Field.
The NFL Week 6 game between New England and Cincinnati will be broadcast in either all or parts of 28 states. The Pats-Bengals game will be the most highly distributed game for CBS, who will only broadcast one game next Sunday. The Patriots impressed in their 33-13 victory at Cleveland while the Bengals were ‘outphysicaled by Dallas’ and were dominated at the line of scrimmage in their 14 point loss to the Cowboys. As a result the betting line has quickly jumped up two full points; the Patriots are now favored by eight.
