Most Intriguing Non-Prime Time NFL Match-Ups of 2015

     The NFL has released its schedule for the 2015 season and there are plenty of eye-catching match-ups to look at. Here are some of the non-prime time match-ups to watch.

  1. Packers vs. Bears (Week 1): The oldest rivalry in the NFL and perhaps all of sports gets another go right from the start as the Packers head to Soldier Field to take on DA Bears. This will be John Fox's first game as the head coach of the Chicago Bears.
  2. Patriots vs. Bills (Week 2): Bill Belichick and Rex Ryan face off again. Only this time, Ryan's coaching the Bills. Rex looks to establish a winning identity in Buffalo and winning this game will help that cause. 
  3. 49ers vs. Cardinals (Week 3): This could be an good game. The Cardinals were fantastic last year with Carson Palmer under center and look to capitalize on last year's success. As for the 49ers, they're looking to rebuild for the future.
  4. Patriots vs. Cowboys (Week 5): Tom Brady vs. Tony Romo will be going down at JerryWorld as the defending Super Bowl champs will be heading to Arlington. This could be a shootout similar to when Peyton and the Broncos played at AT&T stadium a couple of years ago.
  5. Texans vs. Colts (Week 5): Another noteworthy player takes on his former team: Andre Johnson will play against his former club for the first time in his career. Indianapolis has high hopes for the Super Bowl this year and are hoping that Johnson will come through for them.
  6. Panthers vs. Seahawks (Week 6): A rematch from last year's playoff. Jimmy Graham is a new weapon for Russell Wilson as Seattle looks to take back the Lombardi trophy this season. Carolina hopes to continue their stranglehold on the NFC South. 
  7. Broncos vs. Colts (Week 9): Andrew Luck vs. his predecessor as the Colts quarterback makes for an intriguing match-up.
  8. Bills vs. Eagles (Week 14): LeSean McCoy makes his return to Philly as Buffalo visits Lincoln Financial Field. Will Eagles fans be welcoming to McCoy or will they do what Philly fans do best?
  9. Cowboys vs. Packers (Week 14): A rematch of last year's exciting playoff game, the Cowboys are looking to exact revenge on the Packers at Lambeau. This won't be easy, though: They kept themselves in the game last year with DeMarco Murray. However, he's gone to Philadelphia.
