The NFL regular season is drawing to a close, and it is fascinating to watch. The final two weeks hold the promise of drama and fantastic finishes. In case you missed it there were several fantastic finishes last week, the 49ers great game vs. the Patriots and the Cowboys over the Steelers. Expect the unexpected.
Several playoff spots and division titles will be decided in the next two weeks.
The do or die scenarios are what make the NFL so intoxicating and addictive.
My top five games this weekend are:
Forty Niners vs. Seahawks
The NFC West title and securing the second seed hang in the balance for the 49ers.
The Seahawks can secure a playoff berth and could win the NFC West if they can defeat the 49ers on Sunday. Huge game for both teams. Kap has silenced the naysayers with his play. In my opinion Kap is a rising star and the future of the SF Forty Niners. This week’s game is another test of his talent and his growth. The Seahawks match up very well with the 49ers. Their rookie quarterback, Russell Wilson is in the running for rookie of the year and is undefeated in Seatlle where the 12th man is always a problem for visiting teams. This will be a great game.
Bengals vs. Steelers
Both teams need to win this game in order to make it to the playoffs.
Giants vs. Ravens
With the NFC East all ties up the Super Bowl Champs have their backs against the wall.
Cowboys vs. Saints
The Cowboys season is on the line. The Saints would like nothing better than to be spoilers.
Redskins vs. Eagles
The Redskins look ready to claim the NFC East, but the Eagles stand in their way.
