Buccaneers vs. Seahawks: Best battle of the high seas this season (until next week’s Bucs vs. Dolphins match-up). Both mascots have their sea legs, or in the Bucs’ case, their sea leg. Both also have sharp tools for battle – cutlasses and canons vs. talons and beaks. This isn’t a Noah’s Arc welcoming committee of birds though; I imagine they have to be pretty powerful to survive the waves and winds of the ocean.
This picture is just confused about who is fighting, but the winner of this battle is the Seahawks.
Falcons vs. Panthers. What a dark, dangerous match-up. I only want this battle to occur at midnight, and we can have night-vision goggles to view it. Both animals have the element of stealth working for them. But while the falcons have the advantage from above, the panthers have a definite weight advantage.
Anyone who has a cat will give this battle to the Panthers.
The scrappiest battle of the week is Ravens vs. Browns . We’ll allow the Browns to be in their bulldog persona for this one, because no one wants to watch a raven battle some brown dirt. Plus, this battle might even be more vicious than falcons vs. panthers, or at least more interesting.
Oh who am I kidding, this is the cutest battle ever! Advantage…Browns?
The worst battle of the week goes to Chiefs vs. Bills. These guys lived in harmony for years and years. No need to add senseless violence with a battle now!
The spirits tell me the Chiefs win this one.
