There is a good selection of NFL games to watch this weekend. It starts with the New England Patriots playing host to the Miami Dolphins. New England suffered a crushing loss to the New York Jets last week and they had issues moving the ball on offense .

They should have success in this game with the Dolphins giving up 372.2 yards on offense per game this season.

Another game that looks great is the Jets on road going up against the Cincinnati Bengals. The Bengals are a good defensive team that’s 7th in league with them only allowing 19.3 points a game.

New York will need to run the ball effectively to have success and this game will be a good test for the team.

The other game that will be good to watch involves the Washington Redskins and the Denver Broncos. Denver lost their first game of the season last week and it will be interesting to see how they respond.

The defense for the team has to play better, especially with them giving up 319.9 passing yards per game.

One good match up this week is Drew Brees leading the New Orleans Saints against a horrible Buffalo Bills team on defense. The Bills are giving up more than 380 yards per game and the Saints are averaging around more than 390 yards a game on offense.

Another good match up is can the Cleveland Browns have success on offense facing a great Kansas City Chiefs team on defense. The Chiefs are only giving up 11.6 points a game and the Browns are not great at moving the ball.

The other good match up has two teams in the Detroit Lions and Dallas Cowboys that can score points in a hurry. This game will also feature two of the better receivers in the NFL with Calvin Johnson for Detroit and Dez Bryant for Dallas.

The top performers of the week will begin with Atlanta Falcons receiver Harry Douglas catching eight passes for more than 120 yards with two TDs.

The next player that will have a solid game is Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch where he have at least 110 yards on the ground with a pair of rushing touchdowns.

The other top performer is Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers having a superb game with more than 350 passing yards and four passing TDs.
