The NFL regular season is well underway. In the first week of the month, the eighth round of games will be played as teams try to reach the playoffs season. Last season’s champs, Kansas City Chiefs, are currently ranked second in their conference. With the help of their star man, Patrick Mahomes, they’ve won six of their first seven games of the season.
But one team has done better.
Pittsburgh Steelers is the only side yet to taste defeat in the NFL this season. That’s six wins in six games this season. They’re definitely one team to look out for this month.
- Copa America
No, we won’t be seeing Brazil take on Argentina this year. However, as the World Cup qualifiers continue in South America, fans are set for more fantastic performances this season, similar to Neymar’s hattrick last month. Two rounds of games will be played this month.
Argentina and Paraguay, two of the unbeaten sides so far, will face each other this month. Chile vs. Peru and Uruguay vs. Brazil are just some of the international games to look out for this month in the region.
Cheers to an amazing month ahead and stay safe.
