Week 18 is loaded with division rivalry action. Back that goes back to the question of if these games will matter. Those teams playing for keeps will provide fans and gamblers with thrilling action and betting opportunities.
The Miami Dolphins will host the Buffalo Bills in an AFC East matchup. Last year the Dolphins rallied to make the playoffs and gave Buffalo a scare in the wild card round. Will China Doll QB Tua Tagovailoa be able to answer the bell for Miami? And will Buffalo have any incentive for the game, or have the top seed clinched?
The NFL’s oldest rivalry will renew when the Green Bay Packers host the Chicago Bears on the Frozen Tundra of Lambeau Field. By the time this game starts, Green Bay will know if the Jordan Love era is off to a promising start or if it is time to panic.
At the same time, Justin Fields will be wrapping up his second season as the Bears' starter.
Speaking of rivalries, the Washington Commanders will host the Dallas Cowboys in the NFC East. Washington faces a season of doubt and lacks a credible starting QB. Sam Howell is currently slated to be the starter, with Browns castoff Jacoby Brissett as the backup.
Everyone knows Dak Prescott is the Cowboys' starter. They don’t know if his production will increase with head coach Mike McCarthy calling the plays.
Four teams that have shared the same division since the 1960 founding of the American Football League will meet in games that could determine playoff fates. The Las Vegas Raiders will host the Denver Broncos, and the Los Angeles Chargers will host the Kansas City Chiefs. AFC Wild West rivalry shootout football at its best!
The Battle of Ohio could have AFC North Playoff implications when the Cincinnati Bengals host the Cleveland Browns. Cincinnati is a top pick to win the AFC North. While the Browns and controversial QB DeShaun Watson will be winding down what looks to be a mysterious season.
The Los Angeles Rams and San Francisco 49ers have a rivalry that goes back to the 1950s. The Rams and Niners had an epic NFC Championship Game in 2022. That day the Rams rallied with a comeback win that was the springboard to a Super Bowl championship.
One game that fans hope has meaning is the Pittsburgh Steelers at the Baltimore Ravens. A decade ago, this was the hottest rivalry in football. It could be again!
