Two future Hall of Famers from the University of Michigan, Tom Brady and Charles Woodson, will meet at Gillette Stadium Sunday.
The New York Football Giants are stumbling through the early season again in 2014. Their inferior play thus far has become a reminder of the shortcomings that plagued the team last season. As if righting a sinking ship was not enough for Big Blue to handle, in come the undefeated Houston Texans and their $100 million man, J.J. Watt.
When he was drafted by the Houston Oilers in 1985, no-one expected Steve Tasker to last very long in the NFL. He may not have lasted more than one season in Houston, but the minute wide receiver and special teams ace last 12 more with the Buffalo Bills. He knows what it takes overcome adversity, but when it comes to this week’s game on Thursday Night Football, Tasker isn’t sure the Tampa Bay Buccaneers can overcome the strong Atlanta Falcons.
While Jay Cutler lacks consistency, he is capable of taking over any game and carrying the Bears with his strong arm when he gets on a roll.
The Steelers are a veteran team that should understand how to play in a big game, but they appeared unprepared for their Week Two game with the Baltimore Ravens.
The Chiefs picked it up quite a bit in losing a 24-17 decision at Denver, and that should be encouraging to Andy Reid and quarterback Alex Smith.
A brilliant season ended in disastrous fashion for the Broncos last year when they were hammered unmercifully by the Seahawks in Super Bowl XLVIII.
The 49ers let a 17-0 lead against the Chicago Bears slip away, and while it was not all Colin Kaepernick’s fault, it was clear that he bore quite a bit of responsibility from the look on his face while standing on the sidelines and from a statistical point of view.
The Vikings made the decision to let veteran Matt Cassel handle their quarterback duties, and he led them to a surprisingly easy win in Week One against the Rams.
The Raiders face a huge disadvantage at the quarterback spot, where rookie Derek Carr is getting the start and must face a New England defense that stepped up in its second game of the season.
