SUNDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL WEEKLY PREVIEW

Green Bay Packers vs. New Orleans Saints (9/27/20)
We’ve got a great SNF game this week. The Saints suffered a tough loss to the Las Vegas Raiders on Monday and are currently 1-1. The Packers are one of the few undefeated teams in the league sitting at 2-0 after defeating the Vikings in week one, and the Lions in week two. Aaron Rodgers had a huge game week one passing for 364 yards and four touchdowns. He currently has six touchdowns and 604 passing yards going into week three. Green Bay’s RB Aaron Jones currently leads the league in rushing yards with 234, and is tied for second place in most rushing touchdowns with three. In the Saints week two loss to the Raiders, Alvin Kamara led the team in both rushing and passing yards. He rushed for 79 yards and two touchdowns, and had nine receptions for 95 yards. On 38 pass attempts, Brees completed 26 of those passes and threw for 312 yards and two touchdowns. He had a QB rating of (99.8). This matchup is for sure going to be a fun one and will go down to the wire. If Michael Thomas can bounce back this week and have a big game, I think the Saints will come out on top. If he is still in a bit of a slump, I’m taking the Packers.
New England Patriots vs. Seattle Seahawks (9/20/20)
This week we’ve got a Super Bowl 49 rematch between the New England Patriots and the Seattle Seahawks. This is going to be one fun game. Both teams are 1-0 and had fantastic week one games. Cam Newton made his debut for the Patriots and man oh man did he have quite the debut. 75 rushing yards, two rushing touchdowns, and 155 passing yards completing nearly 80 percent of his passes. New England’s defense suffocated Ryan Fitzpatrick and the rest of the Dolphins offense. They finished the game with three interceptions and held Fitzpatrick to only 191 passing yard on 20 attempts. They were great at stopping the run game as well only allowing 87 yard on 27 carries. Almost everyone had very low expectations for this Patriots team, but they looked good in week one. Yes they faced off against the Dolphins, but I have seen a lot of “experts” and fans alike picking Miami to win the AFC East division. This week will be a much different matchup for New England. They are facing off against a stacked Seattle team who put up 38 points on the Atlanta Falcons in week one. Russell Wilson threw for 322 yards and four touchdowns with this being one of the best games of his career. New England’s offense will be facing off against a very good defense led by safety Jamaal Adams and linebacker Bobby Wagner. I’m honestly really liking the Patriots in this matchup. On sheets Seattle certainly has the better team all around roster wise, but the Patriots have some lowkey dogs on their squad. They’ve got something to prove this season and I think they are going to make a statement this week against the Seahawks.
