NFL Schedule Week 4: What To Expect

We are now into Week 4 of the NFL season and there have been some surprises along the way.  One surprise is that the New Orleans Saints are undefeated and they have done it by using their defense.

There is a good selection of games that are worth watching this week. One of the games that has the potential of being great is where the Saints will go against a Miami Dolphins team that is undefeated.

Another interesting game is the Chicago Bears taking on the Detroit Lions. The Bears have not lost a game this season, but they might have a challenge in trying to control a very good Lions team on offense.

The next game to keep an eye on is the New York Giants facing the Kansas City Chiefs. The Giants have still not won a game this season and it will require a complete team effort for them to knock off the Chiefs. Kansas City has looked good in the early part of the season and this is because their defense has only allowed 34 points in three games.

One match up to look forward to how the New England Patriots defense will handle Matt Ryan and his group of talented receivers. The defense for New England has not been tested up to this point and it will intriguing to see how they handle an offense like Atlanta.

Another match up that looks great is how the Philadelphia Eagles defense will handle Peyton Manning and the offense for Denver. Philadelphia has looked gassed on defense the past two weeks and they will be in for a long day trying to cover the weapons that Peyton has at his disposal.

The other match up to look forward to is the Seattle Seahawks going on the road against the Houston Texans. We all know how good Seattle is at home, but can they be that successful on the road. If they win this game it will be because of their defense. They have allowed the fewest points of any team this season at just 27.

The top performers of the week will begin with Jimmy Graham as he leads the Saints in receptions, yards and TDs. He will be Drew Brees favorite target and he could have at least eight receptions for 115 yards with two receiving touchdowns.

Another player that will have a big game is Wes Welker for Denver. He leads the team in TDs with four on the season and Philadelphia will not be able to stop him. Welker could easily catch 12 passes for over 100 yards with three TDs.

The other top performer for this week will be Julio Jones for the Falcons. Jones leads the NFL in receiving yards with 373 and will have no problem increasing that total. He could have over 150 receiving yards and score at least one TD.
