This is going to be a tough assignment for the Titans. After playing on Monday night against the Steelers, they have to go on the road against a strong Eagles team that is coming off a humiliating defeat against the Packers.
The Jaguars realize they have a difficult assignment when they look across the field and see the explosive Colts with the No. 1 offense in the league.
The Packers are peaking right now, and head coach Mike McCarthy is hoping they can keep it up throughout the rest of the season. When Aaron Rodgers is healthy, no quarterback in the league is better.
The Jets went into the bye week with a small burden lifted off their shoulders, as they beat the Steelers and ended their eight-game losing streak.
The Browns are one of the top stories of the year as they try to stay on top in the AFC North. One of the key reasons for their success is the leadership and competency of quarterback Brian Hoyer.
The Lions are a maturing team that is no longer its own worst enemy. Instead of committing mindless penalties or turning the ball over at crucial moments, they are playing the game under control.
Josh McCown gets an opportunity to compete against the team he excelled for last year and helped him get a huge contract. McCown filled in for Jay Cutler last season and kept the Bears on track during his absence.
The Chiefs have full confidence that Alex Smith is a championship-level quarterback who is going to take advantage of defensive mistakes every time he steps onto the field.
With that in mind, are the Chargers possibly going to embark another losing streak, this after just snapping a three-game slide that saw them slip to third place in the AFC West?
With not a cloud in the sky and dry conditions on the ground, you would think both offenses would have been able to move the ball up and down the field and put points on the board. Think again.
Sunday’s game for the San Diego Chargers against hated AFC West rival Oakland is essentially a “must-win” game if the Bolts are to remain in the hunt for the division crown or a wild card spot come the end of December.
After dropping their season-opener 18-17 to the now 8-1 Arizona Cardinals, the Bolts reeled off five straight victories, even holding the lead in the AFC West for a time. Now, however, the Chargers (5-4) sit in third place in the division, with a pair of hot teams in front of them, respectively Denver (7-2) and Kansas City (6-3).
The Denver Broncos and St. Louis Rams are two teams heading in completely opposite directions, but sometimes that’s just the way the schedule falls. The Broncos don’t need a win this week, but want one. The Rams desperately need a win to try and save their season. CBS Sports’ Ian Eagle spoke about their upcoming game and looked at both sides of the spectrum.
The Buffalo Bills and Miami Dolphins are tied for second place in the AFC East with identical 5-4 records, and this Thursday night game is going to say a lot for what their postseason future may hold. Ian Eagle of CBS Sports took some time to talk about the big game and how it could affect the rest of the season for both teams. Let’s just say, this is a must-win for both the Bills and Dolphins.
The Steelers came up flat in Week 10 against the desperate New York Jets, but they are an explosive team capable of lighting up the scoreboard any time they take the field.
