The Most Interesting Games of The Upcoming NFL Season

The NHL and NBA seasons have ended while the Orioles continue to do Oriole things. So you know what that means, right?. It is time to sit back and wait for the National Football League to start up again.

Last year, the NFL experienced plenty of political turmoil. Nevertheless, the games were just as exciting as ever. The good news is that the next NFL season is right around the corner. This year will have plenty of exciting games and you’ll definitely want to watch them all. So, which games will be the most interesting?

Dallas Cowboys and Houston Texans

The game between the Dallas Cowboys and the Houston Texans is scheduled to take place on October 7th. There is a good reason that this game makes the list. After all, it is a showdown between two Texas hometown crowds. Plus, most analysts believe that both teams could very well make it to the playoffs this year. However, it will be slightly tougher for the Cowboys. Will the team be able to overcome their past struggles and beat their state rivals? Tune in on NBC on October the 7th to find out!

Los Angeles Rams and New Orleans Saints

You might believe that it is weird that this game would show up on the list. Just think about last year though. Last year’s contest between the two teams was one of the most exciting games of the entire season. The Rams ultimately took home the win, but it was a hotly contested affair from start to finish. Trying to pick a winner is going to be a coin toss. In fact, it is equivalent to playing the games at 99 Poker. Brace yourself and have fun!

Philadelphia Eagles and Los Angeles Rams

If you’re looking for one of the finest games of last season, you’d have to go back to the Philadelphia Eagles playing the Los Angeles Rams. There is a good chance that the 2018 matchup could be just as compelling. The 2017 game had it all and it featured the introduction of Nick Foles, who went on to win the Super Bowl. The Rams have made big improvements this year. For instance, they’ve improved their corner and defensive tackle. That could very well give the edge over the Eagles. Only time will tell.

Baltimore Ravens and The Atlanta Falcons

There is something special about the bird teams in the NFL. Watching the Ravens and the Falcons battle it out is almost always intense. This year is going to be a little different. The two teams will face off on December the 2nd. When that happens, it is going to be a little more special than before. Why? Well, two first-round quarterbacks from the 2008 NFL Draft will be facing off. Matt Ryan and Joe Flacco have both proven to be successful. Ryan really came into his own last year, while Flacco has a passing completion percentage of 61.7%.

Will this game put to bed the Flacco v. Ryan debate or will it only serve to intensify the decade-old argument?
