NFL Game of the Week: Chiefs at Rams
This is a no brainer for the NFL game of the week. The Chiefs are the best team in the AFC, stringing together win after win behind breakout star Patrick Mahomes at QB. They currently sit at 9-1. The Rams are currently the best team in the NFC, putting up tons of points each week, and led by the best running back in the NFL, Todd Gurley. They currently sit at 9-1. These two teams are the two highest scoring offenses in the NFL, so you can expect a ton of points in this game, and, if you play fantasy, you can expect anyone you have in these games to pick up major points as well. This game is actually on Monday at 8:15. I know that the games of the week usually are only in the scope of Monday-Sunday, but since I’m doing this one a day late, and this game is technically in the same Week as the other NFL games this week, I’m including this blockbuster of a game in this week’s article. Deal with it.
NBA Game of the Week: Sixers at Magic.
This may not feature the top two teams in the NBA or anything of that nature, but what it does feature is the debut of Jimmy Butler for his new NBA team, the Philadelphia 76ers. Sixers fans who have been trusting the process could not have seen this signing coming. The new trio of Jimmy Butler, Joel Embiid, and Ben Simmons all of a sudden makes this team a favorite in the Eastern conference. This stems from the belief that Jimmy will be able to gel with his new teammates, something he struggled with in Minnesota. Wednesday we get to see him in action for the first time in a Philly uniform, and I’m excited to see what he brings to the team. Tune in at 7 on Wednesday, November 14th.
NHL Game of the Week: Lightning at Penguins
These two teams have been at the top of the Eastern Conference for years now, and have produced some incredible contests over the years. While Pittsburgh hasn’t started the season off as hot as they’ve liked, any time Sidney Crosby is on the ice you are bound to witness some exciting hockey. Meanwhile, the Tampa Bay Lightning have once again started the season at the top of the Eastern Conference, and are the highest scoring team in the NHL. I’m expecting a high scoring game here, as both teams are going to want to make a statement against the other. Tune in Thursday at 7 pm.
Movie Recommendation of the Week: Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald
If you’re a Harry Potter fan, every time a new movie comes out you get that excited feeling of a new magical experience. Now, from this critic’s point of view, the first fantastic beasts was, we’ll call it, underwhelming at best. That being said, I expect The Crimes of Grindelwald to be a much better film, mainly due to the excellent cast additions. Johnny Depp will go from a brief cameo to a central role, and you can always count on a great performance from him. Also, young Albus Dumbledore will be played by Jude Law. It will be interesting to see how Law takes on this role and portrays Dumbledore as a young man. I’m excited, and you should be too. Get out there and see it and tell me what you think!
