Top 5 NFL Games to Watch in Week 1
Can't Miss Games of NFL Week 1
How in the world did we get so lucky to see so many records and career milestones met in the first game of the year? Peyton Manning had arguably the greatest performance of his career, and that's a big statement. The man set to many records and career marks that it's hard to imagine what he'll do next. One thing is for sure: the Broncos will be just fine this year without Von Miller for the first six games.
Of course, we saw tons of points and lots of passing in that first game, which is typical for any contest involving Manning, but we're likely to see more games just like it on Sunday and those are likely to have closer final scores.
Here are five games you don't want to miss this Sunday:
Bengals at Bears
The Bengals at the Bears is an interesting inter-conference matchup that features a team that is a popular dark horse Super Bowl pick and another that has disappointed its fans over the past two years with a talented squad plagued by injuries. Watch out for some wacky plays and a bizarre final score in this one.
Patriots at Bills
The Patriots at the Bills normally wouldn't jump off the page, but New England a little shaky these days with all the personnel changes and Buffalo looks confident with a healthy CJ Spiller and new signal-caller EJ Manuel under center. Watch out for a high-scoring affair that goes down to the wire.
Falcons at Saints
The Falcons at the Saints is always a great matchup because there are typically 60-70 points scored each time these two NFC South rivals butt heads. That should be the case again on Sunday afternoon, but Sean Payton's return provides an interesting twist.
Giants at Cowboys
The Giants at the Cowboys is a fun one because no matter the records or circumstances, these two NFC East rivals always put on a show. Watch out for Dez Bryant's anticipated breakout game for 2013 while Eli Manning tries to stay unbeaten at AT&T Stadium.
Packers at 49ers
The Packers at the 49ers is a great matchup of two NFC powerhouses that don't care for each other and that mutual dislike is growing by the day. The trash talk between Clay Matthews and Jim Harbaugh is sure to provide plenty of sparks early in this divisional playoff rematch.
