The 2010 NFL schedule action begins on Thursday, September 9th as the defending Super Bowl champion New Orleans Saints host the Minnesota Vikings in a rematch of last year’s NFC title game. That is just one of the many great games this season on the 2010 NFL schedule.
A game that is going to get great ratings in the 2010 NFL football schedule is in Week 2 in the second-ever meeting between the Manning brothers. NBC will televise Eli and the Giants against Peyton and the Colts. Another couple of very big games for the NFL 2010 schedule are the return of Donovan McNabb to Philadelphia as the Redskins visit the Eagles on October 3rd and Monday, October 11th when Brett Favre faces his old team the New York Jets as Minnesota travels to New York. Two weeks later Favre goes into Green Bay again and that should be fun to watch on NBC.
Super Bowl Favorites – The Green Bay Packers are one of the favorites to win Super Bowl XLV. With Aaron Rodgers and a potent offense, many people are comparing them to last year’s New Orleans Saints. The Saints are also one of the contenders again this year along with the Indianapolis Colts, Dallas Cowboys, Baltimore Ravens and New England Patriots, San Diego Chargers and New York Jets.
The latter part of the NFL football schedule is always great since there are even more games on television. The NFL network picks up coverage on Thursday, November 11th and they have a great first game with the Baltimore Ravens visiting the Atlanta Falcons.
This season the Thanksgiving Day games are very good with the Patriots visiting the Lions on CBS, the Saints at the Cowboys on Fox and the Bengals at the New York Jets on the NFL Network. The NFL Network will be doing a Christmas night game as the Dallas Cowboys visit the Arizona Cardinals.
The 2010 NFL regular season finishes with games on Sunday, January 2nd. This season all of those games are divisional games as the NFL is hoping to prevent teams from resting key players in the final week of the season.
