14. November 27: Houston Texans at Baltimore Ravens
This has the makings of a 9-6 game. Both teams possess tremendous defenses and underwhelming offensive schemes. At some point, Baltimore will have to unleash Joe Flacco’s arm strength — particularly from a vertical standpoint downfield.
Houston will initially have Tom Savage manning the quarterback position — though there will be plenty of clamoring to see 2017 first-round pick Deshaun Watson. While you’ll see some production on the defensive side of the ball, this won’t exactly be the most entertaining contest you’ve ever seen.
13. November 13: Miami Dolphins at Carolina Panthers
Carolina is attempting to bounce back from a horrific 2016 season. Duly, Miami hopes for yet another playoff season.
These are two teams with plenty of talent — though general inconsistency has plagued each franchise. This could be a battle of two teams on the cusp of a potential playoff berth. If anything, the fans will get to see a Cam Newton-Ndamukong Suh match-up.
