The Patriots have finally knocked the Packers off of the top spot in the power rankings.
In last week’s rankings the Packers just held on to number one but New England’s 30-6 win in Dallas was enough to move them ahead of Green Bay.
The Jets dominated the dreadful Dolphins at Wembley on Sunday and that has propelled them into the top 10 of our rankings.
The Dolphins didn’t turn up in London and anyone who watched that game will understand why Joe Philbin was fired straight after it. That shouldn’t take away from how good the Jets were. Chris Ivory looked like he was going to get seven or eight yards every time he touched the ball. Brandon Marshall was great again and Fitzpatrick looked solid for most of the game. If it wasn’t for two big penalties then the score would have better reflected the Jets’ dominance.
The first Wembley game is finally here. This week the Jets and Dolphins will head to London for the first ever divisional game held outside of America in the first of three international series games.
The two teams are a combined 3-3 so far this season. Unfortunately this will probably end up being the best combined record of any of the games held in the UK this year. Both teams are coming off of a loss but have had very different starts to the season.
We have a new number one in the power rankings. The Packers take over at the top, narrowly edging out the Patriots.
The NFL season is only a few days old and there are already some big questions. Is Peyton finished? Are the Bills actually that good? Should the Bucs have taken Mariota over Winston? is it even possible to stop Gronk?
It feels like forever since that Malcolm Butler interception sent the Vince Lombardi Trophy back to New England, but the NFL is finally back tonight as the Steelers head to the Patriots for the season opener.
Russell Wilson threw an interception with 20 seconds left in the Super Bowl to hand Tom Brady and the New England Patriots their fourth Super Bowl title.
This Super Bowl, held in Arizona, will go down as one of the best of all time and one that fans will never forget thanks to the dramatic finish that saw the Patriots win 28-24 over the Seattle Seahawks and end the season as champions.
Game of the Week: New England Patriots (9-2) at Green Bay Packers (8-3)
The Patriots travel to Green Bay to take on the Packers in what could end up being a preview of this year’s Super Bowl. Both teams are the bookmaker’s favourites to win their conferences and head to Arizona to play for the Vince Lombardi Trophy.
The NFL season is starting to take shape with teams now being eliminated from playoff contention and others getting close to securing their place in the postseason.
