The Seattle Seahawks have a chance to make a statement in the division when they travel to San Francisco on Thursday night. The two teams are locked in a three-way tie at 4-2 with the Arizona Cardinals for the NFC West lead. The Seahawks will be looking to avoid an 0-3 start against division foes, after dropping road games in St. Louis and Arizona earlier this season.
There is a good chance that the winner of the Seahawks and 49ers emerges as the outright NFC West leader. The Cardinals travel to Minnesota to take on a good Vikings squad on Sunday morning. Arizona has lost two in a row, and this will be a tough game.
Houston hosts Baltimore on Sunday in a game that may have major implications for home field advantage in the AFC down the road. The night game features the Steelers visiting the Bengals in an AFC North battle. Monday sees the Lions at the Bears, as Detroit tries to gain ground in the NFC North race.
