The battle for top spot in the AFC West headlines Week Eight NFL action on ESPN as the Pittsburgh Steelers clash with the Baltimore Ravens.
ESPN Australia New Zealand will bring another five live NFL matches this week, starting Friday October 30.
Friday’s matchup sees the Carolina Panthers host the Atlanta Falcons at 11.15am AEDT on ESPN.
Carolina (3-4) have been a mixed bag in 2020, and must win against the Falcons to keep their slender playoff hopes alive. The Falcons (1-6) are only playing for pride for the remainder of the season, and a win over their NFC South rivals, will go a long way to restoring some of that.
Monday sees ESPN Australia New Zealand bring three huge games, all with major playoff ramifications.
The headliner is at 5am AEDT on Monday, as the Pittsburgh Steelers clash with the Baltimore Ravens.
Top spot in the AFC West is on the line in this clash between the undefeated Steelers (6-0) and impressive Ravens (5-1).
Pittsburgh just emerged past the Titans with their winning record intact, courtesy of a 27-24 victory. They will face another stern test in Baltimore, who will be fresh, coming off a bye.
At 8.25am AEDT, it is another huge matchup between the San Francisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks.
Again, a battle of conference rivals, that currently sit at opposite ends of the NFC West standings.
Seattle lead the conference, however must keep winning, as the Seahawks sit just a game in front of the rest of the NFC West.
Monday’s action concludes with the traditional rivalry between the Dallas Cowboys (2-5) and Philadelphia Eagles (2-4).
Both sides are not enjoying much success this season, but amazingly, this matchup is a battle for top spot in the NFC East.
The conference remains wide open, and Monday’s winner will not only take bragging rights but potentially a playoff spot.
The Week Eight lineup concludes on Tuesday at 12.15pm AEDT as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers meet the New York Giants.
Tom Brady has proven he is evergreen in the last fortnight, putting up numbers unheard of for a 43-year-old quarter back. The Buccs’ are also benefiting from a renewed Rob Gronkowski, and the Brady-Gronk combo is firing again.
Throw into that mix the expected return of Antonio Brown in Week Nine, and suddenly the Buccaneers look unstoppable in 2020.
