PIT Pittsburgh Steelers versus PHI Philadelphia Eagles

The Pittsburgh Steelers lost their last game to the Detroit Lions, while the Philadelphia Eagles won their last game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Both of these teams played fairly well last game despite one of them winning and one of them losing. My player to watch for on the Eagles is Sam Bradford. He played very well and, in my opinion, is one of the best quarterbacks they Eagles have had since Michael Vick. My player to watch for on the Steelers is Antonio Brown. He’s one of the best wide receivers in the entire league and in my opinion he could leave the Steelers to a championship.

CIN Cincinnati Bengals versus DET Detroit Lions
Like I said earlier the, Lions are off to a 1-0  start. On the other hand, the Bengals lost their first game to the Minnesota Vikings. It was a close game, but in the end, the Bengals ended up losing 17–16. My player to watch for on the Lions is Matthew Stanford. This quarterback is very talented and athletic. He is still very good even though he’s getting older. I’m expecting much out of him the season.  My player to watch for on the Bengals is Giovani Bernard. He is a younger running back who is about to hit his prime. He was a great rusher last year, and I feel like this season will be one of his best.

OAK Oakland Raiders versus GB Green Bay Packers

Both of these teams won their last games. The Raiders beat the Arizona Cardinals by a score of 31-10, and the Packers beat the Cleveland Browns by a score of 17-11. My player to watch for on the Raiders is Amari Cooper. He is a young wide receiver out of Alabama. In my opinion, he is one of the best players on the team, and is the best wide receiver on the team. My player to watch for on the Packers is Jordy Nelson. He is a top wide receiver in the league. Even though he is older, I feel like this will be a good season for him. He is a reliable target and will be one of the leaders on the Packers.

CHI Chicago Bears versus NE New England Patriots

These two teams had a very different records last season. The Patriots went 12-4, while the Bears went 6-10. The Patriots played their last game against the New Orleans Saints and won by a score of 34-22, while the Bears lost their last game to the Denver Broncos by a score of 22-0. My player to watch for on the Bears is Eddie Royal. He is a decent wide receiver for the Bears, but I feel like he could make a difference for this team this season. He may be 30 years old,but I feel like he will have a good season. My player to watch for on the Patriots is Rob Gronkowski. He is usually the best tight end in the league, and I don’t think that will be any different this season.

ATL Atlanta Falcons versus CLE Cleveland Browns

The Falcons won their first game, but the Browns did not. The Browns lost to the Green Bay Packers by a score of 17-11, and the Falcons beat the Washington Redskins by a score of player to watch for on the Falcons is Julio Jones. He is a small and quick wide receiver who, in my opinion, was one of the best wideouts in the game last season. My player to watch for on the Browns is wide receiver Corey Coleman. He was drafted 15th overall in the 2016 NFL draft. In my opinion, if you are a first round selection, you should do and are expected to do very well in the NFL. I think Corey Coleman will be a good wide receiver in the NFL.

MIN Minnesota Vikings versus SEA Seattle Seahawks

The Vikings and Seahawks both won their first game. The Vikings beat the Cincinnati Bengals by a score of 17-16 and the Seahawks beat the Kansas City Chiefs by a score of 17–16. My player to watch for on the Seahawks is Russell Wilson. He is one of the top quarterbacks in the league, and he has consistently put together good seasons. I feel like he could lead his team to the Super Bowl. My player to watch for on the Vikings is Adrian Peterson. He is one of the all-time great running backs, and even as he grows older, I feel like he will still continue to play very well.
