The Dallas Cowboys and Green Bay Packers are two of the NFL’s most iconic franchises and they battle in the divisional round of the NFL playoffs. Here is a look at the Packers heading into the big game.
The Dallas Cowboys and Detroit Lions prepare to play in the NFC wild card game. Here is a look at the Lions as they take on Dallas in the Cowboys first playoff berth in five years.
The Pittsburgh Steelers finalized their regular season with a win over the Cincinnati Bengals to host the Baltimore Ravens during wild card week of the 2014 NFL Playoffs.
The Detroit Lions have to face the Dallas Cowboys and their excellent offense, perhaps without Ndamukong Suh.
The 49ers travel to Oakland this week to take on the Oakland Raiders. This game means everything to the 49ers and nothing to the Raiders who will only look to ruin San Francisco’s season as well.
First up for the 49ers after their bye is the St. Louis Rams. After beating them less than a month ago, San Francisco should have no problems doing it again in front of their own home crowd.
The 49ers will look to keep their winning streak alive when they go on the road this Sunday to take on the St. Louis Rams. San Francisco is the better team, but is playing a team that is familiar with them, and should give the 49ers all they can handle.
The Oakland Raiders have a new head coach, for now, and they’ve just had their bye week. How will they fare against the 4-1 San Diego Chargers at home this week? Well, the Bolts are on a roll, and they look very good. The exact opposite can be said of Silver & Black, so don’t expect things to suddenly get better for Oakland now that Dennis Allen has been fired.
Week Two looks tougher for the Oakland Raiders now that the Houston Texans posted their first win in almost a year. Can the Raiders win their home opener? Sure, they can, if both the offense and the defense play better than they did in Week One against the New York Jets on the road.
The first NFL regular season game played at Levi Stadium has the San Francisco 49ers hosting the Chicago Bears. On paper, Chicago is very similar to San Francisco’s week 1 opponent the Dallas Cowboys. The Bears have an offense that can score points at will, an inconsistent passer and a less than spectacular defense.
The 49ers and Cowboys meet in Week 1, and the winner will be the team whose defense steps up. While the 49ers defense is top tier, they will be without some key players and going against an elite offense.
The Oakland Raiders, projected to finish last in the AFC West division this year by pretty much everyone, open the 2014 regular season next Sunday against the New York Jets on the road, and it could be the beginning of a long season for the Silver & Black.
