Default 32 Team Best Game Challenge

So as near as dammit we're 7 weeks from NFL kickoff.

I want to watch maybe a couple or three games a week from the 2016 season. And I want them all to be really good games - not necessarily high scoring, not necessarily important in playoff terms. Just really good football games.

And to make things slightly more complicated I want to see all 32 teams represented.

So that's 16-21 games, featuring all 32 teams at least once. With no dross.

Start giving me some game recommendations, guys

*edit* Here's the list of games so far without duplicating any teams:

Raiders @ Saints Week 1
Jets @ Bills Week 2
Browns @ Ravens Week 2
Texans @ Pats Week 3
Redskins @ Bengals Week 8
Colts @ Packers Week 9
49ers @ Dolphins Week 12
Cowboys @ Giants Week 14

Well, if you really have to see a Jets game, I'd go for the Week 2 game against Buffalo. Opening week against Cincinnati wasn't a bad game either...

Can only recommend Pats games, although did go to Bengals v redskins, which was a cracker!

For a coaching masterclass on a short week with an untested QB out game week 3 against the Texans is the one for you.

The game v Baltimore week 15? Was probably the next best.

Of course there is always the Super bowl!

Raiders games would be the Saints week 1 for Del Rio's brass balls call or the Panthers, listen for the roar of the crowd when Derek Carr comes back in after the finger break.

Colts at Packers, starts off with a kick return for a touchdown and never really let up.

A victory at Lambeau clearly the highlight of the Colts season, so I'm bias as hell, but I think when any team shocks the Packers on their territory it's always worth a watch. Also, Luck v Rodgers only happens once every 4 seasons, so well worth relishing it.

And if you would like an utter obliteration at any point, Colts v Jets should do.

Lions v Colts in week 1 was a superb game for high-scoring, offensive driven entertainment.

But any of these would be reasonably entertaining to re-watch I think:

Week 1 - Lions 39 35 Colts
Week 3 - Chargers 22 26 Colts
Week 6 - Colts 23 26 Texans (After OT)
Week 7 - Colts 34 26 Titans
Week 9 - Colts 31 26 Packers
Week 16 - Colts 25 33 Raiders
Week 17 - Jaguars 20 24 Colts

I think Packers v Cowboys in the play offs was probably the best game I saw in terms of spectacle and entertainment. It was probably the Superbowl for everyone else, but I had an early morning in London, so had to go to sleep at half time that night...

From a 49ers perspective not many good games to pick from. The games we won weren't great spectacles.

Probably the best game we lost was a 31-24 loss to the Dolphins.

I recall the Cleveland loss to Baltimore 25-20 was a hummdinger back Week 2, I'd be nominating that on behalf of Cleveland perhaps.

Week 16. Houston Texans @ Jacksonville Jaguars

The Wembley game against the Colts was probably the best, assuming you've seen that one, the game against the Texans is the next best for a Jaguars performance/good watch.

Ok so far (without duplicating any teams) I have:

Jets @ Bills
Redskins @ Bengals
Raiders @ Saints
Texans @ Pats
Colts @ Packers
49ers @ Dolphins
Browns @ Ravens

And I'm torn between Bucs @ Chiefs and Seahawks @ Bucs for the buccaneer representative, so I'll see how the other games appear. Both of those are fine games, for very different reasons, if you're playing along with me


Texans/Jags, Colts/Jags, Packers/Cowboys and Lions/Colts are all on the backup list as they all feature teams already in my 'main' list
