A week has gone by since Thanksgiving, the playoff picture is starting to take some serious shape and, most importantly, the show must go on. The Buffalo Bills will kick off the action on Thursday Night Football as they travel to Foxborough to play Bill Belichick’s Patriots squad in a game that could very well cause a big shake-up in the playoff picture in the AFC East division continues to shape up.
On Sunday, the first game that catches our attention is Russell Wilson’s visit with the Broncos to Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens. At the same time but in Philly, it will be the Titans’ turn to get a taste of what the city of brotherly love is all about as they pay a visit to the Eagles. Moving on to the afternoon, Tua Tagovailoa, Tyreek Hill, and the Dolphins will be heading out west to put their skills to the test in one of their toughest matchups of the season as they play the San Francisco 49ers.
Staying in the afternoon, a couple of candidates for “game of the week” matchups unfold as Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs visit Cincinnati, not for the skyline chili though, but to play Joe Burrow and the Bengals. Meanwhile, out in Vegas, the Raiders will have their hands full to the brim as they host the Los Angeles Chargers in a critical AFC West showdown.
Sunday Night Football will see Jerry Jones’ Cowboys play host to the Indianapolis Colts who will be looking to put Micah Parsons and Dallas’ defense to the test. Last but certainly not least, Tom Brady and the Buccaneers will be looking to put the NFC South on notice on Monday Night Football as they host the New Orleans Saints, their biggest threat in the division aside from the Falcons.
