In last week’s rivalry weekend we saw some great games, and all of a sudden plenty of teams now have their eyes on a play-off spot.
With the season now really hotting up, we preview some of the best fixtures from this weekend’s NFL action, alongside our ambassador Jason Bell.
Seattle Seahawks @ Buffalo Bills
The NFC West-topping Seattle Seahawks travel the width of the country to take on the AFC East-leading Buffalo Bills on Sunday. The Bills have been highly impressive this year and look a shoo-in to top their division for the first time in a generation. However, they face a difficult proposition this week in Seattle, who have remained explosive throughout the season so far, scoring 240 points through seven games.
Miami Dolphins @ Arizona Cardinals
Tua Tagovailoa steered the Miami Dolphins to an impressive win over the Los Angeles Rams in his first start, while last year’s first overall pick, Kyler Murray, continues to go from strength to strength for the 5-2 Arizona Cardinals. While some expected the Cardinals to have improved, very few expected Miami to be sitting second in the AFC East.
Sunday’s clash will be a real test for the Dolphins as they look to take another step towards stamping their post-season credentials, with Arizona looking to keep the pressure on Seattle for the NFC West title. The Dolphins are 9/5, with the Cardinals 10/21, with a handicap of 4.5 points. There is a real element of unknown here centred around Tagovailoa, as if he performs to the level expected, then Miami have a real chance – but there’s always a danger of inconsistency with rookie QBs.
New Orleans Saints @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers
An NFC South match-up featuring two Hall of Fame QBs. Tom Brady v Drew Brees is normally a rare treat, and despite Father Time catching up on both, it should be a fantastic Sunday night fixture. Brady looks to have found his groove at Tampa Bay Buccaneers after a slow start, while New Orleans Saints have rattled off four straight wins to sit just a game behind in the division.
With Brady rekindling his connection with star tight end Rob Gronkowski, the Buccaneers are 5/11 favourites, with the Saints 19/10 to head back to New Orleans with a win. The handicap sits at 4, but with the manner of the Bucs’ win against the New York Giants last time out, New Orleans +4 is priced at 10/11.
