Week 1 NFL Prime Time Games:

Season Kick-Off: Dallas Cowboys at Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 8:20 p.m. ET

The Cowboys have a stacked offense, but their O-Line is suspicious. As we've seen, the Bucs can stop the offense by pressuring the QB at full gear. That's how they won the Super Bowl. With the Cowboys' QB returning from a season-ending injury, Dak Prescott will run for his life trying to reach his weapons. As for Tampa, Brady and his bunch will do their thing against an average defense. It will be very entertaining.

SNF, Sep 12: Chicago Bears at Los Angeles Rams, 8:20 p.m. ET

Two huge football markets face off in the first Sunday Night Football. The Bears and their big-time defense will try to spoil QB Matthew Stafford's Rams debut. Both have lots of competition in their division, so this game is crucial to start with the right foot and get a high-profile win in Week 1.

MNF, Sep 13: Baltimore Ravens at Las Vegas Raiders, 8:15 p.m. ET

The Allegiant Stadium is the NFL's newest stadium and, located in Sin City, and there's no better place to close Week 1 than the 'Death Star.' Better yet, as we have one of the Super Bowl contenders coming to steal the show. Lamar and the Ravens' rushing offense will encounter the Raiders in a tough matchup.

Week 2 NFL Prime Time Games:

TNF, Sep 16: New York Giants at Washington Football Team, 8:20 p.m. ET

The NFC East might not be the highest-caliber football in the world, but they sure present one of the fiercest rivalries in the NFL. The Giants have a plethora of offensive weapons but a turnover machine as QB. Daniel Jones has 51 turnovers in his two years in the league, top of the NFL. As for Washington, they can make Jones' life miserable with their top-end defensive line. It's going to be crazy.

SNF, Sep 19: Kansas City Chiefs at Baltimore Ravens, 8:20 p.m. ET

Lamar Jackson is 0-3 against Patrick Mahomes since they both are starting QBs. They lead two AFC contenders, and at the M&T Bank Stadium, Jackson will hope to get the first victory over the Chiefs. It's a battle between the league's best passing offense in KC against the best running offense in the Ravens.

MNF, Sep 20: Detroit Lions at Green Bay Packers, 8:15 p.m. ET

The NFC North presents a Monday Night Football with the longest-continuous rivalry in the NFL. While the Lions enter a new era, it doesn't seem bright for them, they still lack talent. The Packers have a combined record of 26-6 in the last two years and got Aaron Rodgers back under center, meaning they are a contender. NFC North action on display.

Week 3 NFL Prime Time Games:

TNF, Sep 23: Carolina Panthers at Houston Texans, 8:20 p.m. ET

Ok, not going to lie. This is a lackluster game, but it is what it is, and there are some silver linings to point out. The Panthers will cruise to a victory on national television. Carolina has talent but is not yet a playoff team. They are more of a sleeper team, but here's their chance to showcase their talent to the world. Houston is the worst team in the NFL, so it's a potential blowout.

SNF, Sep 26: Green Bay Packers at San Francisco 49ers, 8:20 p.m. ET

These two faced each other in the NFC 2019 Championship Game. San Fran rolled through Green Bay. Last year, on a regular season, the Packers got revenge by pummeling the Niners. So in a recent-year rivalry, this is another great game between two top teams to watch on Sunday Night. This is a must-watch.

MNF, Sep 27: Philadelphia Eagles at Dallas Cowboys, 8:15 p.m. ET

Once again, the NFC East will not offer the best level but the most disdain. And, quite frankly, it's the NFL; sometimes disdain and bad blood are better than a football masterclass. The Eagles and the Cowboys are one of the biggest rivalries in the NFL. You can't be bored when these two are trying to rip their head off.

Week 4 NFL Prime Time Games

TNF, Sep 30: Jacksonville Jaguars at Cincinnati Bengals, 8:20 p.m. ET

This is not a great game on paper, but the QB duel sells it on its own. You have the last two first overall picks facing off in a must-win for both. Will Trevor Lawrence win, or can Joe Burrow come out victorious?

SNF, Oct 3: Tampa Bay Buccaneers at New England Patriots, 8:20 p.m. ET

The game of the season, plain and simple. Tom Brady is back at Foxborough. He returns as a Super Bowl champion with his core intact to face Bill Belichick and the free-spending 2021 Patriots. This is the game the world needs, and we have it on primetime. What's not to love?

MNF, Oct 4: Las Vegas Raiders at Los Angeles Chargers, 8:15 p.m. ET

The AFC West is a massive division in terms of quality, and this game is a potential shootout. It is a big-boy game as Justin Herbert, and the Chargers aim to lit the Raiders up. Meanwhile, Las Vegas wants to pull a big upset.

Week 5 NFL Prime Time Games

TNF, Oct 7: Los Angeles Rams at Seattle Seahawks, 5:20 p.m. ET

Oh, man! Week 5 may have the best primetime games of them all. We start on TNF with a fire-filled NFC West divisional game between the LA Rams and the Seattle Seahawks. Two playoff teams in warfare, this is insane. 

SNF, Oct 10: Buffalo Bills at Kansas City Chiefs, 8:20 p.m. ET

An AFC Championship game rematch. Two Super Bowl contenders will be in a collision course as the Bills visit Arrowhead City in what can be another AFC Championship game again. It can be a rematch and a preview.

MNF, Oct 11: Indianapolis Colts at Baltimore Ravens, 8:15 p.m. ET

The AFC North favorites, the Ravens, against one of the dark horses of the conference in the Colts. By this time, the Colts will already know if the Carson Wentz experiment worked or not. This can be a fantastic game all-around.

Week 6 NFL Prime Time Games

TNF, Oct 14: Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Philadelphia Eagles, 8:20 p.m. ET

The Bucs should be able to blow the Eagles out of the water. The distance between both rosters is just insane. One is the Super Bowl champion, and the other is poised to end at the bottom of football's worst division.

SNF, Oct 17: Seattle Seahawks at Pittsburgh Steelers, 8:20 p.m. ET

The elusive Russell Wilson will be running for his life as the Steelers' defense is aiming to bring him to the ground. A dynamic offense faces the most fearful defense in the league.

MNF, Oct 18: Buffalo Bills at Tennessee Titans, 8:15 p.m. ET

Oh, this matchup can be one of the games of the season. Two of the most explosive offensive teams in the NFL trading blows. This could easily have more than 60 points combined. No matter what, bet the over.

Week 7 NFL Prime Time Games

TNF, Oct 21: Denver Broncos at Cleveland Browns, 8:20 p.m. ET

This is an intriguing matchup. The Broncos' offense is volatile, but the thing is, they have one of the best defenses in the league, talent-wise. The Browns has one of the most loaded rosters, so it's a great test for them.

SNF, Oct 24: Indianapolis Colts at San Francisco 49ers, 8:20 p.m. ET

Two historic franchises with a good present face-off for bragging rights will always be attractive. The Colts' top-tier offensive line will collide in the trenches with an elite defensive line like the Niners.

MNF, Oct 25: New Orleans Saints at Seattle Seahawks, 8:15 p.m. ET

By this point, we'll know who the Saints' QB1 is. Whoever it is, he has to be ready for a shootout against the Seahawks, and if NOLA is good, this game will be a great one to end Week 7.

Week 8 NFL Prime Time Games

TNF, Oct 28: Green Bay Packers at Arizona Cardinals, 8:20 p.m. ET

This is the Cardinals' big test. They have the talent, they have the offense and defense to put a fight. They should be a playoff team, but can they beat the two-time consecutive NFC runners up?

SNF, Oct 31: Dallas Cowboys at Minnesota Vikings, 8:20 p.m. ET

Two teams that will be fighting for a playoff berth clash at the gridiron in a crucial game. Both teams need a win in this game because a loss here could cost them heavily in the seedings.

MNF, Nov 1: New York Giants at Kansas City Chiefs, 8:15 p.m. ET

Man, poor Giants... They will get embarrassed on national television against the Chiefs. Hopefully, the Giants' offense will show up and make it entertaining.

Week 9 NFL Prime Time Games

TNF, Nov 4: New York Jets at Indianapolis Colts, 8:20 p.m. ET

This is the only primetime game where we can watch no.2 overall pick, Zach Wilson. Unfortunately for him, they face a solid team in the Indianapolis Colts.

SNF, Nov 7: Tennessee Titans at Los Angeles Rams, 8:20 p.m. ET

This is a far-fetched thought, but would it be crazy to see these two in the Super Bowl? They certainly have the talent. The Titans' offense is unstoppable, but the Rams had the best defense in the league last year. It's a heavyweight offense against a dominant defense. It's incredible.

MNF, Nov 8: Chicago Bears at Pittsburgh Steelers, 8:15 p.m. ET

Bears and Steelers are on primetime with one thing clear, this is not for the offense lovers. These are two great defenses fighting to see who's more dominant.
