So what can we do? Well, we can talk about what teams you need to be a fan of today. Luckily, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have gotten their loss out of the way early this week. Boom, one less team to worry about in the NFC South.
Lets roll through the games.
Buffalo Bills vs. Cincinnati Bengals: you need to root for a different game on your local channels. This is pretty deep in the AFC, so I’ll go with Buffalo if only to force the Patriots into a wild card spot into the playoffs.
New York Jets vs. Cleveland Browns: this game is completely inconsequential to the Falcons, the playoffs, and the NFL. If this is your only option at 1 PM, then this would be a great time to clean your bathroom.
Baltimore Raiders vs. Oakland Raiders: I can’t muster up an opinion about either of these terrible teams.
Green Bay Packers vs. Dallas Cowboys: both teams were supposed to be powerhouses this year. Dallas is 2-2 and the Falcons already handily beat Green Bay. I’d rather Dallas makes the playoffs, even if that lets in the Minnesota Vikings.
Minnesota Vikings vs. Chicago Bears: the Vikings could pressure the Packers for a playoff spot, and I’d he happy with not seeing Rodgers again this year. Go Case Keenum and/or Sam Bradford!
