Every week, I stare at the schedule and try to make sense of what we’re about to see. I try to judge what’s the game I’m looking forward to most, then go from there. Tough one this week, though.
On the field, I literally can’t wait for Seahawks-49ers. Two hard-nosed, tough-as-nails defenses against hard-core running attacks. I’ll be happy if Seattle RB Marshawn Lunchpail and San Fran LB Patrick Willis just run into each other 50 times. However… it just doesn’t have hold the gravity of the other two top games.
Patriots-Jets is always intense, both off the field and on. There is some serious AFC East supremacy at stake, still. And how can you go wrong with Texans-Ravens (the game I’m covering), featuring the only two AFC teams over .500? Really. So, what did I choose?
