Welcome to Week 5 of the NFL season. After that strange game between the Indianapolis Colts and New England Patriots
The San Francisco 49ers get going in the afternoon at 1:25 P.M. in a home game against the Arizona Cardinals. The afternoon time gives us a slew of A.M. games to consider and there’s a few that should look good.
The Green Bay Packers take on the Detroit Lions in a divisional matchup. While divisional games are hard to read for future opponents, I’m curious how the LIons hold up against the Packers, considering the 49ers are heading to Wisconsin next week for Monday Night Football and that they beat the Lions.
I’m also curious about the Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Kansas City Chiefs. The Chiefs pulled out a win with some Patrick Mahomes magic (and no, I’m not calling him that lame nickname ESPN was shoving down our throats Monday) but he also began to show some chinks in the armor. We’ll see what the Jaguars can build on with that defense of theirs.
The only game in the afternoon I’m sad to miss is the Los Angeles Rams vs. Seattle Seahawks. If there can just be an actual warzone, I’d be plenty thankful. I wouldn’t mind seeing the Seahawks pull of a win against the Rams, but at the same time, whenever Seattle loses in Seattle, it’s time for celebration since I live in Seattle and am surrounded by the 1-2 man.
