The Bears vs Vikings

This could be the game for the Vikings

Minnesota comes into this game at home against the Bears knowing that with the record they have and a win over Chicago they could very well push themselves into the post season. In order for that to happen however this Vikings teams needs to do a much better offensive job, they have not run the ball well nor have they made the right decisions in blitz situations. Chicago has not had the year they expected but they have been pushing on both sides of the ball, I just don’t see that this Bears team has the necessary players to make a run, they are average at best and unless they make some big moves this offseason I don’t see that changing.

Rams vs Buccaneers

The Rams really need a win in this one…

This should actually be a much better game than what most people think, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers travel to Saint Louis on Thursday night to play the Rams, both teams are coming off a loss and they are looking to get back on the right side. For the Rams this will be their first nationally televised game of the season so they will really look to make this one count. Tampa on the other hand knows that playing the Rams at home compared to playing them on the road are two very different things, Saint Louis plays much more aggressively at home as their fans really stand behind them.

Magic vs Hornets

The Magic are looking to get back on track

This will be one of those types of games that most won’t care too much about because they are smaller market teams that don’t have that big named superstar. If you ask me this is one of the better games of the evening based on basketball skills alone. Both teams have actually been playing at a high level even if that has not translated well into wins. The Hornets are traveling to Orlando to take on the Magic in what I expect to be a great offensive game.

Jets vs Cowboys

Center stage for the first Saturday game of the year

The New York Jets travel to Dallas to take on America’s team, the Cowboys know that they are in a losing position and chances of making the post season are simply just not there. The Jets on the other hand have an actual chance of working the table and possibly making the post season this year. Winning out the year would really set them up but the Cowboys have really come alive on defense and if it’s just to get some wins to close of the season on a high note, they will play as hard as they can.

Celtics vs Pistons

This will be a great game all around.

The Celtics took the undefeated Warriors to double overtime a week ago, the Pistons have really pushed the pace being in most of the games they have played including pushing the Spurs to their breaking point. Even though both teams lost those games it says a lot about how they play and the drive they have on the court. Both are very technical, they thrive on defense and set plays. Offensively they both like to attack the rim with their backcourt or attracting the double team to look for the open shooter around the perimeter.

Pacers vs Mavericks

Indiana is trying to stay a top contender

Things in the Eastern conference seem to be a little more competitive this season than last year, the Pacers are coming off a hard season that took a lot out of them, they have actually made some very good head way this season as they find themselves in the top 5. The Mavericks are traveling to Indianapolis to try and keep their recent rise intact. These are two teams that love to attack the rim, both depend highly on their backcourt to drive the ball and get the big men open but recently they have both been settling for jump shots.

The Suns vs The Grizzlies

Big test for the Knicks in this one…

The Suns are going to try to accomplish something only one other team in this league has done, walk into FedEx Forum and come out with a win. The Grizzlies are not only the second best team in the NBA but they are the best home team in the League having only lost once in front of their home crowd it’s not something they expect to happen, especially from a struggling Suns team that cannot really seem to get it going unless they are the Saturday afternoon national TV game.

Cavaliers vs Pistons

Dallas has a chance to extend their lead overall

After making the big trade a few weeks ago, the Cavs sent Andrew Bynum off in exchange for the Bulls forward Luol Dang who has already seen extended minutes while making his presence felt with his new team. He brings a defensive mindset that this team was lacking as well as the ability to score off the dribble and spot up to shoot. The Pistons are a great home team and they move the ball well up the court with their 8 second offense… get the ball up as fast as possible get off a good shoot and then run back to set up the defense.

Kings vs Thunder

This could really give the Kings a push!

The Kings are coming into this game on their home floor and looking for a little redemption after their first outing against the Thunder earlier this season. Sacramento was crushed by the fast moving, sniper like shooting of Oklahoma City, losing by 21 points in Oklahoma. This time around I expect to see much more of a fight from the Kings who have looked impressive over their last five games, rotating the ball well and defending the perimeter shooting, something the Thunder pride themselves on.

Seattle Seahawks at Minnesota Vikings

What this game could have been…

When I saw this game at the beginning of the season I was hopping both teams were relevant by this time because it would showcase two of the best running backs going head to head as the Seahawks’ Marshawn Lynch goes but against Adrian Peterson. Now Lynch is out for the season and Peterson really has not been the force we expect him to be so mu excitement has drizzled down to debating between watching this game or paint dry…
