Ranking the 75 Best Games of the 2018 NFL Season

The NFL schedule release is upon us on Thursday. As a thought exercise, we decided to hold a draft of the 75 games that were most intriguing to us, taking into account the following factors: 1) How exciting the teams are to watch play, 2) Quarterbacks, 3) The extent to which the game is likely to matter for playoff potential, and 4) Television viewership of the teams. It will be interesting to see how these games get spliced up for the prime or standalone viewing windows of Sunday afternoon, Sunday night, Thursday Night, and Monday night between Fox, CBS, NBC, and ESPN.

Because these criteria are pretty straightforward, we’re not going to explain why the games are ranked where they are. Some teams like the Colts and Texans will depend on the health of stars like Andrew Luck and Deshaun Watson. Where rookies like Josh Rosen, Sam Darnold, Josh Allen, Lamar Jackson, and Saquon Barkley wind up — and how they perform — could also have some impact. Here was the result of our Draft.
