Division matchups are key
Sean MacCourtney | Sports writer | @seanmaccourtney
Week four of the NFL season starts off with a bang as Baltimore travels to Pittsburg for a Thursday night game between division rivals. Pittsburg will turn to veteran Michael Vick as they start their uphill battle without starting quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. The Ravens will be looking to get their first win of the season.
Minnesota at Denver will be an intriguing matchup to watch. The Vikings have played better than expected and Adrian Peterson is looking like his old self. Peyton Manning and the Broncos are unbeaten and have their best defense in recent years. Look for the Broncos to win this one at home.
St Louis at Arizona is a matchup of division rivals. The Rams looked to make some noise this year when they defeated the Seahawks in week one, but they have lost their last two. The Cardinals look like one of the best teams in the league. Their defense has been dominate and Larry Fitzgerald has dominated the last two weeks.
Another game to watch for, will be the Giants traveling to Buffalo to face the Bills. The Giants are looking to take advantage of the Tony Romo and Dez Bryant injuries and take an early lead in the NFC East. The Bills are trying to prove they belong. This matchup of New York teams should be a fun one to watch.
The last game I want to mention is the Kansas City at Cincinnati game. The Bengals are looking like one of the best teams in the league while Kansas City is trying to prove that they are worthy of a return to the playoffs. The Bengals are expected to win this one at home.
