Miami Dolphins @ Pittsburgh Steelers preview

Mark Ross (@markr1991) thinks that the Pittsburgh Steelers offence finally get going this week against a poor Miami Dolphins team and run out big winners.

Through seven weeks of the 2019 NFL season the Miami Dolphins have a record of 0-6 and in every game they have given up at least two passing touchdowns. A welcoming stat for the Pittsburgh Steelers who are going into this game with either a quarterback who was knocked out harder than Sonny Liston and subsequently missed a week, or a quarterback who got his nickname from duck calling competitions that he still competes in. After a torrid start for the quarterbacks of the Steel City this game should give whoever starts a chance to perform. read more

Cincinnati Bengals @Los Angeles Rams preview

Mark Ross @markr1991 thinks that the Bengals continue in the race for the Number one draft pick and getblown away by the Los Angeles Rams.

In the third instalment of the London series the winless Cincinnati Bengals make the trip toWembley to take on the NFC Champions Los Angeles Rams.

Cincinnati have not been 0-7 since 2008 and in that season they ended up with only four wins and didn’t get their first one until week nine. The same fate awaits the Bengals on their outing to Wembley. By the time they are on their flight back to the states they are like to have suffered their eighth loss and I fear the worst. read more

Cleveland Browns @ New England Patriots Preview

Josh Capps (@JCapps_) believes the Patriots can make it eight wins from eight as they host the Browns on Sunday night

The New England Patriots welcome another second year QB to Foxborough on Sunday, looking to make the half way point of the season undefeated. The Browns are coming in to this one on a bye week after suffering back-to-back defeats at the hands of Seattle and San Francisco. A well rested Browns team may still find it a huge challenge against Brady and that number one defence in football. read more

Washington Redskins @ Minnesota Vikings Preview

Mark Chance (@mark_chance01) believes the Vikings can continue their strong form and beat a struggling Redskins team

As a Scottish NFL Fan every time I hear the Gjallarhorn and the #SKOL clap it always fills me with pride knowing that we as a nation have made our mark on the National Football League. If you believe everything you read on the internet, sources say the mighty Icelandic clap was brought into the Sporting World by a Scottish Premiership football team from North Lanarkshire, Motherwell FC. There will no doubt be some who disagree with the origins of that fable but as my mother in law always tells me why let the truth get in the way of a good story! read more

International Series review – NFL in the UK has found it’s home

Steve Ovenden (@happyhappysteve) looked back at last weekend’s game in London and reviews the new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium

The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium saw its second game arrive in the form of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Carolina Panthers.  After my preview of this game last week, I was expecting a tight game from the divisional rivals but in the in end it saw a score line which flattered the home team somewhat.  This however didn’t take anything away from the match day experience and the game was still the spectacle to watch. read more

New Orleans Saints @ Chicago Bears preview

Mark @markr1991 thinks that after a substandard showing against his former employers the Oakland Raiders, Khalil Mack gets Soldier Field bouncing and drives the Chicago Bears defence to a win over the New Orleans Saints.

Is there a better story in the NFL right now than Teddy Bridgewater. After tearing his ACL and causing structural damage to his knee in August 2016 he was told it would be at least 19 months until he could even attempt to play again. Now look at him; he has taken over from the all time passing yardage leader Drew Brees (due to injury) and has not looked out of place. He has kept the Saints not only ticking over but playing well and won four straight games. This week though he has the defence wrecker Khalil Mack to contend with.  read more

Houston Texans @ Indianapolis Colts preview

Mark @markr1991 thinks that the Houston Texans will continue their impressive run and take control of the AFC South by beating their closest rivals the Indianapolis Colts.

Finally the Houston Texans have a solid running game to go with their passing attack. Houston have rushed for 839 yards through six games, averaging at 139.8 a game. A lot of this is down to that offensive line improving week in and week out, giving the Texans a chance to establish the run and not relying on Deshaun Watson creating plays. Between Carlos Hyde and Duke Johnson they are averaging 4.9 yards per carry for the sixth best record in the league. With these two in the backfield teams would be ill-advised to neglect their running attack.  read more
