NFL Schedule Week 9: preview and predictions

We are now into Week 9 of the NFL season and we have plenty of quality games on the schedule.

One game that looks promising has the Atlanta Falcons on the road against the Carolina Panthers. Carolina has been playing the better football and they are currently riding a three-game winning streak. The Falcons have struggled for most of the season, thanks to the issues on defense where they’re allowing 26.3 points per game.

The next game to watch involves the San Diego Chargers taking on the Washington Redskins. If you like games with plenty of offense then this is a game to watch. These two teams know how to move ball when they have possession, as indicated by each team averaging close to 400 yards of total offense per game this season.

The other game to watch has the Kansas City Chiefs on the road against the Buffalo Bills. The Chiefs are the only team that has not lost a game this season. One reason is that they lead the league by just allowing 12.2 points per game. It’s also hard to lose when your defense only gives up 309 total yards on offense to opposing teams.

It will be interesting to see how the New York Jets defense responds after they were torched by Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton last week. They face a New Orleans Saints offense that averages 310 passing yards per game. If they’re not careful this game could be over before half-time.

Also keep an eye on the offense for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who take on a very good Seattle Seahawks defense.

Tampa Bay has scored just 14.3 points per game with only 297.7 total yards on offense this season. Seattle proved on Monday Night Football they don’t need to score too many points for a victory.

For the Indianapolis Colts, can Andrew Luck guide the Indianapolis Colts offense against a tough Houston Texans defense? The odd thing about the defense for the Texans is that they only give up 267.7 yards per game, but they allow 27.7 points per game.
