If the NFL playoffs started on this day, the Miami Dolphins, like the rest of the AFC East teams, would be playing one of the first round games.
Much has been made during the regular schedule about the winning transformation NFC East organizations have undergone.but little is said about the high competitiveness that currently exists in the division that the Dolphins, Jets, Bills and Patriots.
The campaign is nowhere near over, but for now the This of the American Conference is the only one that has all its teams with a record that exceeds .500. It is true that no franchise wins the Lombardi in November, but it is also true that it is always better to look at the radar to reach our destination.
With more than 50 percent of the calendar making the stat books, the 2022 season of the National Football League continues the dominance trend of defenses. The attacks have moved away from the end zone and while you might think the lack of touchdowns ruins the show, the truth is that the league has maintained its increase in television ratings by continuing to provide large doses of drama.
The less touchdowns, the more adjusted scores. Until Week 10, the average separation on the boards is 9.29 points per game. For context, the last time the league finished a season with a margin of victory lowest average was in 1932 (9.13).
With matches that are defined almost in the last play, it is impossible to be able to separate from the television during the four periods. So far, 116 games entered the fourth quarter within six points, the most in the first 10 weeks of any NFL season.
The season progresses, but as Thanksgiving approaches, the NFL says goodbye to international travel in 2022.
GAME OF THE WEEK
49ers (-8) at Cardinals (Mexico City)
For just over two years, the coronavirus pandemic altered the lives of a large part of the population who had to undergo long confinement. The National Football League was no exception and during the 2020 and 2021 season it discarded a classic date from its calendar: The visit to Mexico City.
With the health emergency under control, the NFL moves south of the border to celebrate Monday Night at the Azteca Stadium.
For the second time in history, the San Francisco 49ers and the Arizona Cardinals will face off in a battle of the West that travels several hundred miles to land in central Mexico.
The confrontation next Monday will close the five international matches that the league has scheduled for this season.
The Azteca Stadium is one of the most emblematic sports buildings in the world. Located at 2,200 meters above sea level, the altitude will be a challenge for both organizations.
In preparation for engagement, the 49ers decided to focus on Colorado Springs to try to adjust to the altitudewhile the Cardinals opted to stay home.
The good news is that four of the last six teams to play a regular-season game in Mexico advanced to the playoffs, and each of the last two teams to win a game in Mexico went on to play in the Super Bowl (New England Patriots in 2017 and Kansas City Chiefs in 2019).
San Francisco (5-4) enters Week 11 with a two-game winning streak, having beaten both Los Angeles teams (Rams and Chargers) in their most recent outings.
Arizona Cardinals (4-6) arrive in Mexico energized from a 27-17 victory about the Rams. Quarterback Kyler Murray did not play due to a hamstring injury.
The Mexico City game will mark the first of two regular-season meetings this year between the 49ers and the Cardinals, who trail the Seattle Seahawks (6-4) in the NFC West.
Cardinals are 11-3 in their last 14 games against the 49erss, including a season sweep of their division rival in 2021.
The Cardinals have numerous injuries on offense, including to Kyler Murray.
49ers 21-17 Cardinals
Browns at Bills (-8.5):
For many weeks before the start of the season, the Buffalo Bills were considered the number one contender for the next Super Bowl.
However, with more than half the schedule down, their chances of making it to Phoenix have gone down at the same time that their loss column has increased. The Bills have lost two in a row and are desperate for a victory that will keep them in the conversation for the AFC East lead in a week where the Dolphins bye and the Jets face the Patriots.
All three losses the Bills have suffered this season have been by less than three points.
The biggest problem Buffalo’s defense has had is running. In the last three games, no team has allowed more rushing yards than the Bills, averaging 5.9 yards per play.. Now, they have to face the Browns, who rank sixth in the NFL in yards per rush at 4.9.
Buffalo has won its last 3 home games against Cleveland.
The Browns are one of four teams Sean McDermont hasn’t beateneither. Cleveland will no longer appear on that list.
Browns 14-30 Bills
Chiefs (-6.5) at Chargers:
The Los Angeles Chargers appear for the second consecutive time on Sunday Night Football.
Last week they lost in prime time against the San Francisco 49ers and for this Sunday they were rescheduled to perform under the lights of the most watched game of the entire day. The Chargers have an all-time regular season record at home against Kansas City of 31-29-1. The Bolts have played the Chiefs on Sunday Night Football once, a 20-9 home win in 2006.
Although the Chiefs have already mounted in the first position of the AFC.
The Chargers managed to attack the 49ers offense last week. If the Chargers’ offense gets Keenan Allen or Mike Williams back this week, they’ll have a great chance to break pools.
Chiefs 24-27 Chargers
TWO MINUTE DRILL
Titans at Packers (-3):
The Titans lead the rivalry 7-6, the Packers having prevailed in the last two games. Titans 17-21 Packers
Bears at Falcons (-3):
Justin Fields is running more yards than all the miles Forest Gum ran in the Oscar-nominated movie. However, the Bears won’t win any statuettes, nor will the game. Bears 24-30 Falcons
Panthers at Ravens (-12):
Lamar Jackson returns from a weekend where he took rest and lots of piña coladas. If the hangover has already left his body, not even all the power of Black Panther will be able to stop him. Panthers 17-28 Ravens
Commanders(-3) on Texans:
The Commanders are coming off their best game in many years by tearing the Eagles undefeated just like they did with the Steelers in 2020. The Texans are waiting for the next Draft to gain some prominence in a campaign in which no one remembers to tune in on television, radio, internet or follow them on Twitter. Commanders 21-10 Texans
Eagles(-6.5) at Colts:
Someone has to pick up the tab for the Eagles stumble at home on Monday Night. Beginner’s luck ran out for Jeff Saturday. Eagles 30-17 Colts
Jets at Patriots (-3):
New England has won 13 straight in this series, including a game in Week 8 where Zach Wilson threw three interceptions in a 22-point loss of the Jets. The story will be similar. Jets 17-24 Patriots
Rams at Saints (-4):
The Rams have lost more games than any other champion in recent memory. They also said goodbye to their star receiver Cooper Kupp; What does it matter if they lose another game in a lost season. Rams 17-21 Saints
Lions at Giants (-3):
I love the Lions and their gypsy walk. Suddenly they are meaner and sadder than the last day of your vacation and then they show more muscle than Zeus. However this Sunday they face a Giant God. Lions 24-28 Giants
Raiders (-2.5) at Broncos:
You know you’ve hit a low point when your quarterback sheds tears. The Raiders are still lost in their move to Las Vegas. Raiders 13-17 Broncos
Cowboys (-1) at Vikings:
The Cowboys’ loss to the Packers brought a lot of tears to Gerryland and a lot more worry to his coaching staff. The defense allowed a soulless team to come to life, so it’s no wonder Minnesota and its seven-game winning streak plunged its Viking ax into them. Cowboys 20-27 Vikings
Bengals (-4.5) at Steelers:
When they announced the 2022 calendar this match was scheduled for Sunday Night. We all know why he was demoted. Don’t expect much from Pittsburgh. Bengals 24-13 Steelers
