While the NBA and NHL playoffs seem to be moving along, MLB seems to be in a rhythm. It’s an excellent moment to talk about…the NFL.
The NFL schedule release day is highly anticipated for reasons that aren’t known to all.
The new season begins on Thursday, September 8, when the Buffalo Bills travel west to face the Los Angeles Rams, who are currently the Super Bowl champs.
Week 2: You can expect plenty of Justin Herbert versus Patrick Mahomes talk from Jake, State Farm.
There are many divisional games featured in Week 3: The Steelers will visit the Cleveland Browns before heading to Pittsburgh Steelers. Baker Mayfield won’t likely be their quarterback.
In Week 4, the Dallas Cowboys will face off against the Washington Commanders. This week’s schedule features the Seahawks against Lions and Eagles against Jaguars as well as Cardinals versus Packers.
Week 5: has some thrilling matchups with the Cowboys hosting the Rams and the Cincinnati Bengals traveling down to Baltimore to face the Ravens.
Week 6: isn’t quite as exciting. It’s not possible to win them all.
Let’s look at Week 7: Kansas City travels west to the San Francisco 49ers. Red-clad persons should be present in the stands.
Week 8: will see Baltimore travel down I-5 from Tampa Bay to face Tom Brady and his Buccaneers. There will be many trick-or-treat jokes.
Week 9: features replays from last year’s Rams-Buccaneers playoff match.
Week 10: The Dallas Cowboys visit the frozen tundra at Lambeau Field to face Aaron Rodgers (Green Bay Packers). The tundra should not be frozen, as it will be November.
Week 11: features some interesting division matchups (Raiders at Broncos Chiefs at Chargers, Bengals @ Steelers).
Week 12: starts with a Thanksgiving tripleheader. On Sunday, the Chiefs will host the Rams.
Week 13: Buffalo. New England. Kansas City.
Week 14: Las Vegas Raiders @ Rams While there won’t be much excitement in the stands, there will be plenty of action on the field.
Week 15: Has a Monday night bout between the Rams and Packers in Green Bay, with both teams petitioning to move the game to Los Angeles.
Week 16: features a unique schedule as Christmas falls on Sunday. The Packers will play the Dolphins to their relief. Then, the Broncos will take over and the Rams will take over. Finally, the Cardinals and Buccaneers will be relieved of their indifference to the weather conditions.
Week 17: is going to be chaotic, especially in Las Vegas where the 49ers face off against the Raiders. We offer our condolences to the Allegiant Stadium security personnel.
The regular season will end with Week 18. Let’s make 1969 our best year!
We can finally resume our springtime sports viewing.
