With most eyes on the London game and several high profile teams on bye weeks this is not the most enthrauling of weeks in this years NFL calender, however there are a few interesting match ups and the game of the night liiks to be the Chargers at the Jets, both probably playoff teams at least. The Jets bounced back from 3 consecutive losses with a good win over Miami and with home advantage they should move to 4-3 against a somewhat injury hit Chargers.
The other big game sees the Lions entertain the Falcons, who have gambled big this year in the draft. Detroit lost their first game of the seasn last week against the Surprise team of the NFC San Fransisco but should bounce back here.
Other intriguing games include Washingtons trip to Cam Newton – sorry we mean Carolina and if as we expect the Panthers win this one then the NFC East will be wide open again.
Finally what can you say about the Packers – reigning Superbowl Champions and currently 6-0 and looking hungry for the first back to back since the Patriots did it in the early 2000s. With the Vikings looking like a team under reconstruction its hard to see anything else but a Green Bay win.
