With this past Monday’s disappointing 18-17 loss at Arizona in the rearview mirror, the San Diego Chargers hope their home opener provides them with win number one of the season.
The defending Super Bowl champions looked in 2013 form when they took apart the Packers last week, something many around the NFL (especially the San Francisco 49ers can’t be happy about).
In the preseason finale last Thursday evening in San Diego, the Bolts kicked their way to a 12-9 win over the NFC West Cardinals – yes, the same team they will face come Monday in Glendale.
The 49ers’ acquisition of wide receiver Stevie Johnson is a win for both the team and player. San Francisco gets what they hope is the final missing piece to their passing game, while Johnson gets the chance to return home and not only play for a contender, but play in a market where his talents will not go un-noticed.
Ask Aaron Donald and he’ll tell you without a doubt, that he believes he couldn’t have landed in a better spot when he was selected by the St. Louis Rams in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft with the No. 13 overall pick.
Stevie Johnson had produced three straight 1,000-yard seasons with 23 touchdown catches as Buffalo’s most dynamic player in the passing game when that streak ended in frustrating fashion last year.
Six weeks ago, the New Orleans Saints suffered their worst loss of the season in a game where they were absolutely demolished by the Seattle Seahawks. Immediately afterward, head coach Sean Payton told his players to put the game behind them because they would get another shot. Payton was right as the Saints are meeting the Seahawks again, and there are four big things they need to do, in order to win.
The Green Bay Packers have had trouble stopping the 49ers in their last two meetings. Now they have to try and beat them in the playoffs while facing injury issues on defense.
The Green Bay Packers pulled off a huge win to make the playoffs, but now they have to face off with the San Francisco 49ers. They will have to work to prevent a repeat of what happened when these two met last season.
The San Francisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks are on a roll as they begin the season’s stretch run with each vying for the NFC West title.
Ever since high school, Marshawn Lynch has been compared to another running back. Lynch has been covered by the glory of someone else, will this be the year that he ultimately radiates his dominance on the gridiron?
Anybody who watched the Cardinals last year saw that they needed help at the quarterback position. Considering their options, Arizona has to be happy with their off-season addition of Carson Palmer.
