The 5 Most Intriguing Matchups Of Week 2 Of The 2012-13 NFL Season

Submitted by on September 16, 2012 – 10:25 amNo Comment

How awesome was last Sunday? After more than eight months of having no football on TV on Sunday, we suddenly had more than a dozen different games to watch. And, it was exhausting. Fun…but exhausting.

When you get a long break from football, you tend to forget how tough it can be to keep up with it on Sunday. Between keeping up with fantasy football scores, watching your favorite team, and checking out which team is going to ruin your three-team parlay (for recreational purposes, of course!), Sundays can feel a little bit like work during the regular season. But, don’t worry—we’ve got you covered!

In an effort to make Week 2 of the NFL season a little less “painful,” we put together a list of The 5 Most Intriguing Matchups Of Week 2 Of The 2012-13 NFL Season. If you can only stay focused on five games today, make sure five are the ones you pay attention to. Otherwise, you’re going to be totally lost when you and your co-workers gather ’round the water cooler tomorrow morning.

1. Baltimore Ravens @ Philadelphia Eagles (1:00, Sunday)

Are the Ravens really as good as they looked on Monday night? And, are the Eagles as bad as they looked last Sunday? Both questions are still TBD. But, we should have a much better idea when this game is over. This is the game to watch on Sunday afternoon and could be a preview of a game that you’ll see in February if things go according to plan for these two squads.

2. New Orleans Saints @ Carolina Panthers (1:00, Sunday)

Both of these teams lost in somewhat shocking fashion last Sunday and neither of them want to start the season off 0-2. So, will Drew Brees lead the Saints to a much-needed victory? Or, will Cam Newton come through for the Panthers and send the Saints to the bottom of their division? The quarterback matchup alone is worth watching.

3. New York Jets @ Pittsburgh Steelers (4:25, Sunday)

The Jets completed dominated the Buffalo Bills during their win last Sunday. The Steelers, on the other hand, dominated the Denver Broncos for three quarters—but they ended up losing when Peyton Manning started acting like Peyton Manning again. So, who will dominate this one? At the end of the year, this matchup could help determine which of these two teams will go to the playoffs. So, even though it’s only Week 2, this game is definitely a must-win for both teams.

4. Washington Redskins @ St. Louis Rams (4:05, Sunday)

Okay, okay. So, no one actually wants to see the Rams play. But, they do want to see ‘Skins QB Robert Griffin III. For that alone, we’ll make this game must-see TV.

5. Detroit Lions @ San Francisco Lions (8:20, Sunday)

You saw what happened the last time these two teams met up, right? Lions coach Jim Schwartz and Niners coach John Harbaugh got into a little altercation during the post-game handshake. So, this game will be intense from the start. If you’re not ending your day by watching this one, you’re losing.
