The week 10 NFL schedule is going to be an interesting one, especially with Thursday night football returning with the Baltimore vs. Atlanta game on Nov. 11. Right now, the Baltimore Ravens lead the AFC North and the Atlanta Falcons lead the NFC South, so this game is a pretty important one for both teams to win. Getting a national audience will certainly make these teams more recognizable to the everyday NFL fans as well, even if the game is just being broadcast on the NFL Network. Hopefully they have good commentators bringing us the action this year.
That Baltimore vs. Atlanta game gets things started with an exciting Thursday night game, and it begins an extended weekend of great games. Sunday starts off with a Tennessee vs. Miami game that puts Randy Moss on the field as a member of the Tennessee Titans for the first time. The Miami Dolphins will key in on him when it comes to their defensive schemes, especially knowing that their backs are now against the wall in the AFC East. The Titans are in an equally precarious position, as they have to win some games quickly if they want to stay near the top of the extremely tough AFC South.
Sunday afternoon finds an interesting Seattle vs. Arizona game that could decide which team leads the NFC West by the end of the weekend, and they will be playing at the same time as the St. Louis vs. San Francisco game. Right now, Seattle and St. Louis are tied for the division lead at 4-4, with the Arizona Cardinals right behind them at a 3-5 record. Even with their horrid start, the 2-6 San Francisco 49ers aren’t out of things. Many NFL fans are calling this the weakest division in football, but someone is going to get to host an NFL Playoff game by winning it.
The Sunday night football game this week is New England vs. Pittsburgh, putting two of the teams tied with the best record in the NFL (6-2) on the field at the same time. This should be considered the game of the week, mostly because it will decide whether the Pittsburgh Steelers or New England Patriots deserve to be called the best team in the NFL. The game will be on NBC Sunday night, and could end up grabbing some very nice ratings for the network.
That will be followed by a Monday night game of Philadelphia vs. Washington, pitting Donovan McNabb against the Eagles and Michael Vick for the second time since he left.
