It’s mid-season in the NFL. It’s still a little early, but through the first eight weeks, we have learned a lot about what each team is bringing to the table.
The Buffalo Bills looked really strong through the first six weeks but took a hard loss to the Tennessee Titans, 31-34. Coming off that big win, the Titans had to go on the road to play the Kansas City Chiefs. In what could only be described as a shameful game for last year’s AFC champions, the Chiefs allowed Derrick Henry and the Titans to run straight through them for a huge 27-3 loss. The Titans are now 5-2, and with some notable big wins, may just have what it takes to make a deep push this year in the playoffs.
The Buccaneers, led by veteran quarterback Tom Brady, look to be even better this year despite winning the Super Bowl last year.
One more thing to keep a lookout for is the close race for the top seed in the AFC North, with both the Cincinnati Bengals and the Baltimore Ravens tied at 5-2. Both teams are led by young QB’s that guarantee an entertaining game.
Starting off Week 8, football fans were blessed with a colossal matchup between the 6-1 Green Bay Packers on the road to face the undefeated 6-0 Arizona Cardinals. With the game coming down to the wire, the Packers were able to secure the victory with a walk-off interception in the Cardinals’ end zone, ending the longest win streak for any team this year.
Since Week 1, the Packers have won six straight games, tying the Cardinals and the Buccaneers for the best record in the NFL. With tons of drama in the offseason, many wondered if the Packers would be able to figure it out this year knowing it could be the last time Aaron Rogers ever wears green and gold. Only time will tell, but from the looks of things, the Packers and Rogers both want the same thing: Super Bowl LV rings.
