NFL Week 14 is Full of Division Rivals and an Old Super Bowl Rematch
This should be a fun weekend for NFL fans. Eight division rivalries will be continued this weekend. There will even be a Super Bowl XXIII rematch late Sunday afternoon.
The NFC East is not becoming the runaway win for the Dallas Cowboys that it looked like earlier this season. The Cowboys are leading the division with an 8-4 record but Washington is right behind them at 6-6 and Philadelphia behind them at 6-7. Dallas has looked very vulnerable over the last few weeks while Washington has been winning some games they shouldn't be. If Dallas is to win the division, they need to tighten up because they have Washington twice with the Giants in between over the next three games followed by the Cardinals then the Eagles to close out the season.
When Dallas and Washington play, however, it's always a crapshoot. With the way Washington has played over the last few weeks and with this game being on their field, I'm giving this one to Washington by a field goal as time expires, 27-24. I really hope I'm wrong, though. Go Cowboys!
In 1989, the home of the Miami Dolphins was the host of Super Bowl XXIII between the San Francisco 49ers and Cincinnati Bengals. The 49ers won that Super Bowl 20-16. Late Sunday will feature a kind of rematch of that game with the 49ers heading to Cincy to face the Bengals. I think the Bengals will be just a little too much for the Niners to handle. Bengals win 27-18.
