While you won’t seen many matchups between playoff contenders this week, there are some intriguing games to watch as the mid-point of the 2013 NFL season approaches.
It’s hard to argue that the most intriguing game this week isn’t the New Orleans Saints hitting the road to face the New England Patriots. Not only is this a matchup of Super Bowl winners from the past decade, but also the two greatest head coach/quarterback tandems in Sean Payton/Drew Brees vs Bill Belichck/Tom Brady.
Oh, and the return of All-Pro tight end Rob Gronkowski in front of a roaring New England crowd will also be a site to see. We’ll get a chance to see the two greatest tight ends currently in the NFL in Gronkowski and Jimmy Graham face each other for the first time in their careers.
Given the to teams area a combined 9-1, this could be a preview of this year’s Super Bowl.
