Games to Watch this Week
Here are a few games around the sports world that you should tune in to this week:
It’s only right to start with MLB, as the chase for the coveted World Series ring continues! Tuesday, October 20th will see the key fourth game of the ALCS. The game will be between the Kansas City Royals and the Toronto Bluejays. The royals outbatted the Bluejays in game one of the series, winning 5-0. The Royals again outdid the Bkuejays by a score of 6-3, giving them a two-game advantage. Monday will see game three of the series, but game four will really give us the answer as to who may be representing the American League in the World Series as Chris Young duels with R.A. Dickey.
October 20th will be a double-header as the New York Mets travel to Wrigley Field for a key game three against the Chicago Cubs. Game one brought us a 4-2 victory for the Mets as Jon Lester and the Cubs couldn’t keep up with the Mets. It’s been a very exciting season for both teams so far; even making it this far is a surprise for the Cubs. Game three will involve a pitching matchup between Jacob deGrom and Kyle Hendricks. Tuesday will also bring us a better view of who will represent the National League in the World Series.
The NFL is finally in the swing of things with a very exciting 50th season, and here are a couple of those upcoming games:
The Seattle Seaharks will travel to the Bay Area for a match against the San Francisco 49ers. These two teams will kick off week seven of the season, and there’s no better way to start than with a divisional rivalry game. Week six saw the Seahawks fall to the Panthers, leaving Seattle at 1-5 for the season. The 49rs snapped a four-game losing streak against the Baltimore Ravens and now sit at 2-4. Thursday should be an exciting night of football!
Another rivalry game will air on Sunday, October 25th, this time between the New York Jets and the New England Patriots. These teams have had plenty of good games against each other in the past, and Sunday should be no different. The Jets now have a record of 4-1 while the Patriots are undefeated in the season (pending results against the Indianapolis Colts). This game is sure to be a hard-hitting match.
