NFL


The 2019 NFL season continues to build in excitement and high-quality entertainment and this year could turn out to be one of the best in recent seasons because there are numerous serious challengers for the AFC six-time Super Bowl winners and reigning Champions the New England Patriots and genius coach, Bill Belichick to consider this season.

The Baltimore Ravens and brilliant rookie quarter back and MVP contender Lamar Jackson are the number one challengers so far having dished out the Patriots first loss of the season two weeks ago, Kansas City Chiefs are always a threat, especially now star quarter back Patrick Mahomes is back from injury and the surprise package of this season so far, the San Francisco 49’s, who lost for the first time this season midweek in an epic overtime clash against Super Bowl contenders the Seattle Seahawks from the NFC.

The likes of the Oakland Raiders, Pittsburgh Stealers, Houston Texans, Tennesse Titans and Indianapolis Colts from the AFC and the New Orleans Saints, Green Bay Packers, Minnesota Vikings, Philadelphia Eagles and possibly Dallas Cowboys from the NFC are also all still in the hunt to win their respective groups and championships, but more importantly qualify for the play-offs and aim for the two coveted places in Super Bowl LIV at the Hard Rock Stadium Miami, Florida in February 2020.

It’s week eleven in the NFL and the action gets underway on Sunday evening at 6pm as usual. I can’t wait to watch the Baltimore Ravens from the AFC North and star QB Lemar Jackson again, this time against the in-form Houston Texans from AFC South, and this should be a high quality and high scoring game, which should go the way of the Ravens at home if they continue to play as well as they did last week and the week before against the Patriots. Previous corresponding encounters between the Panthers at the Falcons and Bills at the Cowboys have been high scoring affairs and I expect high both games to be high scoring again and the Dallas Cowboys to beat the Buffalo Bills.

The Miami Dolphins season looked doomed a few weeks ago, however, since losing their seventh game of the season they have slowly been turning things around and will aim for a third straight win on Sunday when they welcome the Buffalo Bills, who don’t have a great record at the Hard Rock Stadium. The Carolina Panthers and MVP Running Back contender Christian McCaffrey should be to strong at home against the Atlanta Falcons in what should be a high scoring touchdown fest.

The Indianapolis Colts are marginal favourites to beat the Jacksonville Jaguars at home, the Minnesota Vikings look like a shoe in against the Denver Broncos at home, the New Orleans Saints should bounce back from a surprise home defeat last week, away at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the New York Jets look like the value pick away at fellow strugglers the Washington Redskins.

Finally, The reigning Super Bowl champions the New England Patriots from the AFC East return after their bye week and travel to Super Bowl LII winners the Philadelphia Eagles from the NFC East. The last three corresponding encounters at the Lincoln Financial Stadium were all fairly close encounters that went the way of the Patriots and I expect the Patriots will extend that winning record further on Sunday night.

After losing their first game of the season from a winning position and in such dramatic fashion last week, the San Francisco 49’ers face a test of their character and Super Bowl credentials at home against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday night and finally, the Oakland Raiders will aim to keep the pressure up on AFC West group leaders the Kansas City Chiefs with a winnable home game against the Cincinnati Bengals.
