There aren’t a lot of “personal” storylines in this game, like the rest of the list, but man, this should be a good one. The best quarterback in the game going up against arguably the most underrated in the game. A dominant offensive line facing off with a front seven in New England that will be a force to be reckoned with next year. A dynasty of the past, going against the dynasty of the future.

If you like explosive offenses, this game will be for you. We have Rob Gronkowski on one side, Dez Byrant on the other, and plenty of complimentary weapons squeezed in between. I’m not saying the two defenses will have zero impact, but make no mistake about it: this contest will be a shootout between Tony Romo, and Tom Brady.

Like the Packers game last season, this game will be two heavyweights going blow for blow in a game that has less importance than most other huge clashes. When the AFC and NFC meet in the regular season, the pressure is lowered, which means we can just enjoy some good football.
