Go For Two: NFL games to watch week 6

Matt Prater
Lions 3rd kicker of the season

I can not believe that we are already in week 6! What?!

I’m still coming off the high that is a Green Bay win and a week of Lions and Bears losses. Ah. I really don’t want to go into next week. I want to bask in the glory of it all cause you  know it ain’t gonna be pretty like that every week. Ask the Falcons (come on guys? Why couldn’t you just beat the Giants!). The Browns want week 5 to live on forever as well, as they had the best 25 point comeback ever. What about semi-pro hair model Brady, who showed the world he wasn’t done yet. Well, that’s what week 6 is for. To take winners and make them losers, and losers and make them winners. Well, everyone except the Jaguars and the Raiders, they are just losers and I feel bad for them. Seriously. Real bad.

Here are the games that peak my interest…

Go For Two: Dolphins versus Falcons

What’s the game of the week! Hmmm. Who should I pick to highlight …. ?

Uhh …. no one?

Week 3’s games are yawn producing. Giants versus Panthers? Meh. Rams versus Cowboys? Meh. Browns versus Vikings? Double meh.

I’m trying to be a better blogger, and not just pick the Packers versus Bengals because the Packers are my team. Although, they may be one of the only competitive games between two potential playoff contenders.

However, the game of the week is the 2-0 Miami Dolphins versus the 1-1 Atlanta Falcons.

Here’s why I am picking it as the game of the week.

The first point is easy. The Dolphins are 2-0. Yes. You read that right. The Miami Dolphins are 2-0. So far they have won against the Browns (meh), but they also played the Colts. That makes it a bit more interesting.

The AFC East looks just terrible. Not to say the Patriots won’t get their act together, but the rookie wide receivers weren’t the only problem with the Pats offense. Tom Brady looked messy, inaccurate. I can’t believe more people didn’t comment about the passes he threw behind players.

So all I am saying is that it’s worth watching the Dolphins to see how they look this year. How do they compare to the Patriots? Can the Dolphins win against a great team like the Atlanta Falcons?

This is the Dolphins chance to prove they can play with the big boys. They may have a chance this year, with the Jets and Geno Smith looking awful, and the Patriots looking like they have lost their veneer.

As always, go Pack.

On a side note, I want a taunting penalty on Marshawn Lynch. What a classless display walking into the end zone like that. Just highlights how adolescent the Seahawks behavior is.
