Sunday Night Football Notable Games – 2021
Sunday Night Football often has some of the best games of the week. Here are some of the notable games to look forward to for the 2021 season.
Week 2: Ravens vs. Chiefs
The first of two premier SNF games for the Chiefs in three weeks is the Ravens, with Lamar Jackson vs. Patrick Mahomes again. Who will win this bout?
Week 4: Patriots vs. Bucs
This game is circled on everyones calendar, especially Tom Brady’s. This is his first game in Foxboro after winning a Super Bowl with Tampa, and it is the game he could pass Drew Brees for the most passing yards in NFL history. Mark your calendars.
Week 5: Chiefs vs. Bills
Chiefs vs. Bills is a game that every fan in the NFL will watch as two of the best quarterbacks in football are on display. This could very well be a AFC Championship game preview.
Week 15: Bucs vs. Saints
It is not Drew Brees vs. Tom Brady anymore, but this game could help decide the winner of the NFC South.
