New England Patriots at Arizona Cardinals
Week 1: Sunday, September 11
Interconference matchups are always interesting, because teams like the Patriots and Cardinals only play each other once every four years. Perhaps the most interesting aspect to this matchup, other than the fact that both teams lost in their respective conference championship games last season, is that it pits arguably the two most respected head coaches in the league against one another. Bill Belichick has only faced a Bruce Arians-coached team once, when the latter was the interim coach for the Colts in 2012. That day was a blowout in favor of New England, although ironically, the Patriots blew a home game earlier that season to Arians’ predecessor in Arizona, Ken Whisenhunt. This will be a tough road assignment for Tom Brady (if he is not suspended) and a reshuffled Patriots offensive line.
Houston Texans at Denver Broncos
Week 7: Monday, October 24
Selecting Denver and Houston for the list premier games for NFL betting online of the 2016 schedule is no-brainer. Who doesn’t want to see if Broncos general manager John Elway made a huge mistake allowing Brock Osweiler to leave to the Texas as a free agent? There is speculation that Osweiler wanted to get out from under the shadow of Elway and Peyton Manning, the disgustingly successful quarterback legacy that serves as a huge hurdle for any young player looking to establish his own identity. Throw in the fact that the Broncos are trying to repeat, the Texans have a good team and J.J. Watt might make Mark Sanchez recreate the butt fumble, and it’s clear this deserves its lofty status.
Seattle Seahawks at New England Patriots
Week 10: Sunday, November 13
THe premium matchup of the 2016 NFL slate pits the two combatants from arguably the best Super Bowl ever: XLIX, two seasons ago in Phoenix. Imagine the Twitter conversations if Seattle gets to the Patriots’ 1-yard line at any point during the game. Run or pass? We can only dream it happens. Seahawks-Patriots bests Texans-Broncos because these are much better teams and this game has the potential to be of a higher quality. Both the Seahawks and Patriots will most likely be playoff teams again, whereas the Broncos and Texans will have multiple challengers to their division crowns. Given where Bill Belichick and Pete Carroll are in their respective coaching tenures, and given the rarity of this interconference meeting, this might be the last we see of these two on the same field unless we get a Super Bowl rematch.
