This series is brought to you by T.G.I. Friday’s, where every Sunday means Food, Fun & Football! Hut, hut, hut!
Thanks to our good friends at TGI Friday’s, we are going to have a series of sponsored posts on the weekend’s best games. We’ll start with the obvious choice first.
Kansas City Chiefs (6-4) @ Seattle Seahawks (5-5)
The Kansas City Chiefs got their season back on track with a win over the hapless Arizona Cardinals last week and Sunday they will look to rectify their road woes when they travel to Seattle to take on a former division rival in the Seahawks.
Seattle will be looking to climb back above .500 after suffering an embarrassing loss to the New Orleans Saints.
If Seattle hopes to stop the Chiefs they will have to muster up some defense. They currently rank 30th in the league against that pass giving up 283.2 yards per game.
The Chiefs have struggled on the road so if Seattle can get their passing game going against a Chiefs secondary that is susceptible to the big play, the Seahawks might be able to pull out a victory. This could be a close one.
More after the jump.
If the Kansas City Chiefs are the surprise team of the AFC then the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are surely the surprise team of the NFC. The Bucs, like the Chiefs, are beneficiaries of solid coaching, talented rookies and a favorable schedule. If there are still doubters, the Bucs can prove they are for real by going to Baltimore and knocking off the Ravens.
The Ravens likely won’t be a pushover. They stand at 7-3 and are involved in a fierce battle with the Pittsburgh Steelers for the AFC North crown. The Ravens can’t afford to lose and likely won’t. I’m guessing they’ll be too much for the upstart Bucs.
Two of the top teams in the NFC will square off in what could be a battle for home field advantage throughout the playoffs. The Falcons have a league best 8-2 record and will be at home to host the high powered Packer offense lead by Aaron Rodgers.
The game is crucial for both teams as the Packers are trying to hold off the 7-3 Bears and the Falcons face the task of staying in front of both Tampa Bay and New Orleans, both 7-3.
