You know the feeling.
You have to watch the team you love.
The players you adore, the players you have been wanting to see for a long time.
They’re the stars of the show.
But sometimes you just need to get out of the way and allow them to shine.
And in this case, that’s when you get to watch some of your favourite footballers in action.
Watching your favourite player in action is a big deal, but this year, the NFL is putting its money where its mouth is and putting a whole lot of emphasis on the big, flashy games.
Here are the top 10 NFL players that will be in action on Sunday.
New England Patriots: Donta Hightower (DE, Miami Dolphins) It’s hard to pick just one player to see the biggest game of the season on Sunday, but here’s the one that stands out to me the most.
Hightowers biggest contribution to this Patriots season was as a blocker.
He helped the team stay in games and not give up many big plays on the offensive line.
He also has the biggest hands in the league.
Houdon, who has already played the best football of his career in Miami, could very well be the most valuable player on Sunday night.
New Orleans Saints: Kenny Vaccaro (WR, Philadelphia Eagles) Vaccaro is arguably the best wide receiver in the NFL.
He can be a physical threat and makes the most of the opportunities in the passing game.
But he can also be dangerous in the run game.
He’s capable of taking the ball to the house on some plays and can also get into the end zone on some of his big plays.
This game could be a battle between Vaccaro and Kenny Golladay, but with the way the Saints offense is shaping up, I think it’s a matchup of the two top players in the game.
Dallas Cowboys: Michael Sam (WR/DE, Texas A&M) Michael Sam is one of the best cornerbacks in the entire league.
He is one hell of a blocker, and he’s also an incredible passer.
The Cowboys are playing with a lot of energy this year and have shown flashes of being dangerous.
Sam could be the one guy that Dallas needs to step up on Sunday if he doesn’t perform well.
Cincinnati Bengals: Khalil Mack (DT, Oakland Raiders) I was blown away by Mack last year.
I didn’t even know that Khalil was a pass rusher.
He was one of those guys that made everyone around him better and he was a fantastic player in the secondary.
Now, I don’t want to give too much away, but Mack has a ton of talent and has been a big reason why the Bengals have made a playoff run.
Tennessee Titans: Michael Vick (QB, Philadelphia 76ers) Vick has been absolutely incredible this year.
He has been the most consistent quarterback in the AFC East, and his team has been very good.
The Titans have also been dominant against the run, which is one reason why they have been able to win games.
If the Titans can’t score touchdowns on the ground, it could be an easy game for the Raiders to win.
Indianapolis Colts: D.J. Humphries (CB, Kansas City Chiefs) Humphries was the No. 1 cornerback in the draft in 2016, and this year is going to be even better for him.
He’ll be in a position to take advantage of some of the bigger plays the Chiefs can create.
Carolina Panthers: David Wilson (QB/RB, New Orleans Pelicans) This is going be a tough game for Wilson.
Carolina has played well, but they’re still young and inexperienced.
Wilson could be one of them, and it could go a long way in determining whether the Panthers are in a playoff spot or not.
Cleveland Browns: Terrance West (CB/SS, Cincinnati Bengals) West is the most exciting player in this game, and you can’t get much better than his performance against the Raiders.
He did an incredible job of keeping Tyrod Taylor off the field in the fourth quarter, and was in the right spot at the right time when he intercepted a touchdown pass.
West is just another great talent for the Browns to watch.
Seattle Seahawks: Ryan Kelly (TE, Buffalo Bills) Kelly has been an elite blocker, but his biggest contribution was his play on the field.
Kelly is a physical freak and he has a great combination of size, speed and instincts.
If he can get the ball in his hands consistently, the Seahawks could win this game.
Kelly could be among the best pass-catchers in the NFC East, but the Seahawks are going to need him to be in the endzone Sunday.10.
Atlanta Falcons: Greg Hardy (CB and LB, Carolina Panthers) Hardy is a huge difference maker for the Panthers.
Hardy has been fantastic for Carolina this
