NFL Game of the Week: Eagles at Saints
Nick Foles, enough said. But I’ll say more. Foles is at the helm once again for the Eagles in the playoffs and has the chance to do the unthinkable for the second time in a row. The man just cannot seem to lose. The Saints are the best team in the NFL, however, so this will truly be the biggest test for the Eagles in this playoff run. Another cool fact is that this is the first time two former Super Bowl MVPs will meet in the playoffs that went to the same high school. Can the Eagles miraculous run continue or will Drew Brees and the Saints do what they’re expected to do and take care of business at home in New Orleans. Tune in at 4:40 Sunday, January 13th to find out.
NBA Game of the Week: Thunder at Spurs
With Golden State looking very vulnerable this year, the West seems up for grabs for the first time in 3 years. The Thunder currently sit in 3rd place in the West, but are separated from the 6th place Spurs by only a game and a half. The Spurs have been playing some of their best basketball of the year, having won 5 straight and 8 of their last 10 games. Demar Derozan has been a solid replacement for Kawhi Leonard thus far, and has looked more comfortable in the San Antonio offense as the year has progressed. I’m looking at this as an early statement game, as each team will look to show that they are ready to compete for the West title this year. Tune in to TNT at 9:30 on Thursday, January 10th.
NHL Game of the Week: Predators at Blackhawks
Nashville has been consistently one of the best teams in the NHL this year. The Blackhawks, on the other hand, have been exceedingly disappointing. However, the latter has been playing some of their best hockey as of late, with Patrick Kane revitalized and scoring at will once again. I’m looking for both of these teams to bring high energy and a lot of offense to this game. Tune in to NBC Sports at 8:00 pm on Wednesday, January 9th.
Premier League Game of the Week: Manchester United at Tottenham
Manchester United have looked very solid since finally relieving themselves from Jose Mourinho. However, this Tottenham team will surely be a big test to see if Man U really are the real deal moving forward towards the rest of the season. Tottenham are 3rd in the Premier League right now, and cannot afford to drop points this week with Liverpool and Manchester City above them. Both will be looking to nab a win at Wembley this week, so tune in to NBC Sports Sunday, November 13th at 11:30 am.
Weekly Movie Recommendation: The Upside
This will be an interesting movie. You’re taking two unbelievable dramatic actors in Brian Cranston and Nicole Kidman, and throwing in one of the funniest people on the planet in Kevin Hart. This comedic drama covers the friendship between a quadriplegic wealthy man and an unemployed former criminal hired to assist him. I’m not sure what to expect in this one but there’s a lot of star power in this film, which more often than not leads to a solid viewing. Check out The Upside this weekend, opening in theaters Friday, January 11th.
