My Top 25 Games on the 2013 Schedule
 
Great quick site for you to print out a one-page, simple, clean full NFL schedule. http://printableteamschedules.com/im...hedulegrid.gif

These are my top 25 (non-divisional) games of the 2013 schedule.
Which ones are you most looking forward to?

We have Peyton Manning at Indianapolis, at Eli Manning, rematching the Ravens, @ Tom Brady, @ Houston. All delicious matchups.

I like Atlanta playing Seattle, San Fran, Green Bay, and New England.

Brees vs Brady is a great matchup.
Luck facing the Niners in week 3 is a heckuva test vs his old Stanford coach Harbaugh.

I can't wait for football.
Can we just skip the pre-season and keep everyone's stars healthy please!
  1. Denver @ Indianapolis, week 7
  2. Green Bay @ San Francisco, week 1
  3. Denver @ NY Giants, week 2
  4. New England @ Baltimore, week 16
  5. Seattle @ Indianapolis, week 5
  6. Atlanta @ San Francisco, week 16
  7. Seattle @ Atlanta, week 10

You have alot of Denver games on your list, as you should. I cant wait to see a team that is hungry, that was so close last year and they know it! Denver should make for some exciting electric games to watch this year.

If Manning stays healthy, they should be as exciting a team as it gets.

Great passing game, with Wes Welker added to Decker & Thomas.
Montee (MonTAY) Ball is an exciting RB who produced in college, he's added to the mix there.

On defense you got perhaps the best defensive player in the game (JJ Watt aside), add in a great home crowd, a game at Indy where Manning built the stadium there, and a game at Peyton's brother early, week 2..... let's get it started!

Again, that's why I said Manning healthy.... the NFL has to do all they can to keep players, especially QB's protected.

Except Broncos rivals, everybody loses if the star QBs go out.
Well unless there's a Matt Cassell situation.

No Buffalo games??!?!

You're missing out man.



No....no you're not.

There are too many games before week 10 at the top of your list.

(For example. . .) I get why a GB@SF matchup sounds amazing, but it's week 1. It won't mean much in the grand scheme.

Well, true more excitement in week 17 when playoff seeds are on the line.

But in all truthfulness, a W in week 1 is just as important as a W in week 11, or 13, 14, etc.

SF beat GB last year in week one.
Had GB won that game, in week one, what would the records have been?

Same difference had it been in week 8, 12, 14.

I rank the matchups.

If this was my list I would have Seattle at San Francisco on the list and San Francisco at Seattle as my number 1. Two best teams in the league playing in the best atmosphere in my opinion. Russell Wilson, Kaepernick, Seattle's defense, Jim Harbaugh, Greg Roman, Beastmode, you can't beat that.

Bingo.

And I would have those 2 games high on the list, as I started that SF vs Sea thread, I think this is the best current rivalry..... not longest-lasting or anything, but the best 2 teams in a bitter rivalry.

Balt-Pit always is up there.

I know this list is for non-division games, but just speaking as a football fan outside of the Bills, I can't wait to watch Seattle vs. San Fran.

I always find Green Bay and Detroit to be very interesting the last few years as well because of the shootout that can occur.

Denver - Baltimore week 1 is an interesting matchup. I am interested to see how The Ravens revamped defense looks.
