A London Game and A Battle Between Conferences
We love it when the NFL comes to London, and this is one of those weeks as the Jets take on the Falcons in what could be a heated showdown! Also, we have a big upcoming matchup between two 3-1 teams with a lot of talent spread across their rosters. You don’t want to miss something that could end up being a Game of the Year candidate!
NFL Sundays 6pm Fixture: Green Bay Packers @ Cincinnati Bengals
The Green Bay Packers are coming off a statement victory against the Pittsburgh Steelers, moving up to 3-1 on the year with three consecutive wins. The Cincinnati Bengals are in the same spot with a 3-1 record, recently overcoming a 14-point deficit against the Jacksonville Jaguars to win the game on Thursday Night Football.
The Packers haven’t looked back since their crushing defeat in the season opener against the New Orleans Saints. Aaron Rodgers continues to look like one of the best quarterbacks in the league, Davante Adams is simply unguardable (if that wasn’t a word, it is now!) and has received 45 targets and Aaron Jones has scored five touchdowns! Yes, their defense is a bit of a problem considering they are missing a few guys due to injuries.
Luckily, the Steelers were struggling on offense last week, but the Bengals aren’t. Cincinnati looks completely revamped with Joe Burrow back in the starting lineup. Just last week he threw for 350 yards and two touchdowns without an interception. His chemistry with former college teammate Ja’Marr Chase is also evident by Chase scoring four touchdowns in four games. Their defense also looks a lot better now that they have playmakers all over the field.
This is going to be a very tough game even though Green Bay is the obvious favourites. The Bengals have refused to quit no matter the circumstances and could very well catch the Packers off guard if they come out swinging offensively. I think the Packers are rightfully the favourites, but Burrow could turn it into a shootout quickly!
London Games: New York Jets @ Atlanta Falcons
The Jets grabbed their first win of the season in a shocking upset win over the Tennessee Titans while the Falcons choked a late fourth-quarter lead against the Washington Football Team and fell to 1-3. Neither of these teams have top 20 defenses, they are incredibly reliant upon their team’s ability to score…a lot.
I don’t have a lot of faith in either of these teams right now but what I do know is that this could end up being a shootout. With both teams being incapable of defending the other, these offenses could get going quickly and could have a thrilling finish!
Despite there not being many big names on these teams I think it is more than exciting enough to watch as this game could very well surprise you this weekend.
