The city of Seattle is riding high after a big Seahawks win on Thursday night and a full day of NFL football is on the slate for Sunday. In the four games the region will have televised, fans can expect to see an undefeated team, a young and upcoming quarterback that has gathered the praise and criticism of the entire nation, an old rivalry fueled with hatred, and a game where the first team to score 40 will probably win.â†µ
In early action on CBS, the Steelers and Bengals will kickoff at 10:00 a.m. These two franchises have a genuine hate for the other and both are in the thick of a playoff race. Expect a defensive battle in this AFC North showdown.â†µ
In early action on FOX, Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos will head to Minnesota to face the Vikings. Denver is 5-1 since making the switch at quarterback, while the Vikings will likely continue to struggle, especially with Adrian Peterson not playing.â†µ
In late action on FOX at 1:15 p.m., the city of Seattle will see the undefeated Green Bay Packers face the New York Giants. Many believe the Packers have the best chance since the 2008 Colts to go undefeated in the regular season and the Giants are more than capable of pulling the upset if they step up defensively.â†µ
Finally, the Saints and Lions will be featured in primetime on NBC. Both teams score a lot of points and fans should be in for a lot of fireworks once kickoff takes place at 5:20 p.m.
