|ESPN.com: NFC West||[Print without images]|
Posted by ESPN.com's Mike Sando
The lopsided nature of the NFC West race is forcing our hand in terms of which games to attend each week.
I'm heading to Arizona for the 49ers-Cardinals game on Monday night. Four reasons:
Week 11 features the Cardinals and Seahawks at Qwest Field. The Rams also visit the 49ers. The Arizona game appeals as the Cardinals get a chance to deliver a knockout blow in the division, or the Seahawks have a chance to make one last stand.
The chart shows how many times I've seen each NFC West team in person this season. As always, I'm interested in hearing the cases for and against attending specific games in specific weeks. If my logic is off-base, by all means, tell me where to go.
A quick look at the travel schedule so far, followed by a look at the possibilities for the remaining weeks:
Week 1: Cardinals at 49ers.
Week 2: 49ers at Seahawks.
Week 3: Rams at Seahawks.
Week 4: Cardinals at Jets.
Week 5: Patriots at 49ers.
Week 6: Cowboys at Cardinals.
Week 7: Cowboys at Rams.
Week 8: Cardinals at Panthers
Week 9: Eagles at Seahawks
Week 10: 49ers at Cardinals
Week 11 (projected): Cardinals at Seahawks
