Continuing Growth With NFL Frankfurt Games – November 12

Updated:

Indianapolis and New England meet in the last of the Frankfurt games in NFL Week 10 action today. In fact, as you’re reading this, the game will be taking place. It’s a 9:30 a.m. start for the Colts and Patriots, who are playing at Deutsche Bank Park located in the city of Frankfurt in Germany. The soccer stadium is converted to a regulation NFL football field and will seat roughly 50,000 rabid German fans who crave these Frankfurt games.

Colts-Patriots play today in Frankfurt

Last week, Kansas City and Miami played in the first of the Frankfurt games in front of 50,023. The Chiefs defense shut down the highly explosive Dolphins offense and claimed a 21-14 victory. The win moved the Chiefs to 7-2 while the Dolphins dropped to 6-3. Both teams still lead their respective divisions and many believe the game could be a preview of the AFC championship later this season.

NFL Frankfurt Games

The Frankfurt games are part of the much larger NFL International Series, which was developed to promote American football outside of the U.S. Long before the Frankfurt games, the NFL had a stake in NFL Europe, which was born out of the old World League of American Football. NFL Europe lasted until 2005. At that point, the league began playing preseason games around the world.

Franfurt games are part of the NFL International Series

In 2007, the NFL began playing games in London and have been playing in England’s capital city ever since (except 2020 due to COVID). Beginning in 2016, the International Series was expanded to Mexico and just last year, the Frankfurt games were started. The NFL continues to look for expansion opportunities and has considered Brazil, China, Spain, and possibly even Australia. For now, we’ll have to make do with the London, Mexico, and Frankfurt games.

Frankfurt Games Begin Big Day in NFL

The Frankfurt games kick off today’s NFL action. As mentioned it’s Indy against New England. Once that game concludes, it’s right back to the normal 1:00 p.m. and late-afternoon kickoffs. The Jets and Raiders will end the day’s action on Sunday Night Football. 

The NFL and its Frankfurt games are not the only game in town today. It is a Sunday and that means there are plenty of other sports playing games today. Of course, that means a lot of betting opportunities are available. Get a headstart on all the action with our Week 10 NFL picks page. Read on in my next section about our expert handicappers, who are already loading picks into our database for games today.

What will you be betting on today?

  1. NFL Frankfurt games: There are almost 100 NFL picks in our database already and the Colts-Patriots haven’t even kicked off yet. It should be an interesting game. The Patriots are 2-7 and have one of the most boring and terrible offenses in the league. Indy lost rookie QB Anthony Richardson, but Gardner Minshew has his moments. 
  2. 1:00 p.m. games: Cleveland plays at Baltimore in the best of the early games. These two teams have the NFL’s best defenses. The Ravens have won 12 of the last 16 against the Browns, including the first meeting this season. Baltimore won 28-3.
  3. Late games: The surprising Lions are coming off a bye and playing the Chargers in LA. The NFC East Giants-Cowboys matchup will probably be a blowout. The Cowboys are the only NFL team favored by double digits this week. They are a 17-point favorite!
  1. Sunday hoops: The NBA has 11 games on today’s schedule. With all of the props and other betting markets, that opens up a wealth of opportunity for bettors. 
  2. Sunday on ice: The NHL usually has a lighter schedule on Sunday’s. That is true today with only five games on tap. The surprising Vancouver Canucks (10-3-1) are in Montreal today to face the Canadiens (7-5-2).
  3. Another huge soccer day: All of the world’s top leagues have multiple matches. Some have already started. The English Premier League has four matches in progress already, for example. The MLS playoffs continue with the Columbus Crew and Atlanta United playing a deciding Game 3 in their first-round series.
  4. NCAA hoops: The first full week of the college basketball season continues today with a number of games on the schedule. Most of these early season games pit mid-majors or even lower division teams taking on Power conference teams. One such game today is Lehigh at No. 19 North Carolina. Check the members’ area for CBB picks for today’s games.
  5. Final rounds: The ANNIKA driven by Gainbridge has teed off Round 4 already. Emily Kristine Pedersen continues to lead the event. On the PGA Tour, the final round of the Butterfield Bermuda Championship is today. Alex Noren has a one-shot lead over Camilo Villegas.
  6. New tennis tournaments start: On the ATP Tour, the men begin competition in the Nitto ATP Finals in Italy. The women will begin the LP Open by IND, which is taking place in Chile.

Frankfurt Games, Jimbo, and Big Numbers

The NFL’s Frankfurt games are among today’s trending sports news. The game should be in progress as you finish reading this. Jimbo Fisher is also in the news today. Check out what’s going on with him below. There were some big numbers put up yesterday too.

Here’s what’s trending.

  • Frankfurt games: German fans love American football. Despite a game between 2-7 New England and 4-5 Indianapolis, expect Germany to embrace today’s game. On Monday, it’s back to the Bundesliga.
  • Jimbo about to be fired: Texas A&M is expected to fire head football coach Jimbo Fisher today. The Aggies beat Mississippi State 51-10 yesterday to move to 6-4 this season. Overall, Fisher is 45-25 in six seasons at Texas A&M. The Aggies brass gave Fisher a ridiculous 10-year contract that included $95 million guaranteed. He has a huge buyout, but Texas A&M is expected to pull the trigger and look for someone new.
  • Jayden Daniels: The LSU quarterback put up video game numbers yesterday as the Tigers beat Florida 52-35. Daniels threw for 372 yards and ran for 234 more. He totals 606 yards and five touchdowns.
  • Bo Nix: Daniels was the only quarterback with some big numbers on Saturday. Oregon’s Nix completed 74 percent of his passes for 412 yards and four touchdowns as the sixth-ranked Ducks beat USC 36-27.
  • Big Ten: Even with Jim Harbaugh suspended, No. 3 Michigan still beat Penn State yesterday in Big Ten action. Iowa beat Rutgers 22-0. The game was significant because it has the lowest closing game total ever for a college football game – 27.5 – and it still went Under!

That’s it for today. Keep an eye on those trends and check out our members’ area for NFL picks all day long. Let’s meet here tomorrow and see how we all did.
