Adrian Peterson a while back provided not-so-subtle hints that if he couldn’t finish his career with the Vikings, he wouldn’t mind doing so with the Giants.
Now that Peterson will actually get to pick his second NFL team as an unrestricted free agent, don’t expect him to end up there.
The matchups include a rematch of January is NFC Championship, a perfect-world, Derek-Carr-stays-healthy clash between the Raiders and Patriots, and somehow, more Philip Rivers. As the quest to crown the league is most exciting offense continues, players like Odell Beckham Jr., David Johnson, Cam Newton, Jameis Winston, and Tyreek Hill have no recourse but to wait and hope the difference between a good and elite playmaking squad can be found in the 2017 NFL draft.
Blitz is simplistic technology means the power to make Alex Smith ignore a wide open Tyreek Hill is now in your hands. The Chiefs have some solid pieces in place, but they are never going to win an offense-only shootout by pitting Smith up against Drew Brees.
Chargers-Giants is the toughest matchup of the Blitz Bracket is second round. Los Angeles at full strength gets solid advantages at tailback and tight end, but New York is dynamic receiving corps nets a big win at WR1 and a more even matchup at WR2. (Allen vs. Marshall is a debate that could arc in several different directions given the questions surrounding each talented wideout.) In the end, a coin flip gives this one to LA.
