NFL Germany Games Begin Today – November 5

Updated:

Yes, NFL Germany games are a thing. If you haven’t paid much attention lately, the NFL has a whole international series that is played each year. The idea is to create interest in the game of American football in other areas of the world. It’s even possible that the NFL could, at some point, expand into areas like Europe.

Today is the first NFL Germany game and it should be a good one. The Kansas City Chiefs and Miami Dolphins, both 6-2, will face each other in what could be a preview of the AFC Championship game. You’ll have to get an early start if you plan on watching. The game starts at 9:30 a.m. ET and is being played at Frankfurt Stadium in Frankfurt, Germany.

NFL Germany Part of International Series

Before 2005, the NFL played a series of preseason games around the world, long before NFL Germany was a thing. The league also had its own developmental league called NFL Europe, which went through a number of different looks. The league ended in 2005 with teams in England, Germany, Scotland, Netherlands, and Spain. 

After NFL Europe folded, the NFL initially began playing games only in London. These games started in 2007 with the New York Giants playing the Dolphins. Every year since (except for 2020 because of COVID), there has been at least one game in London. This year, there were three.

NFL Germany games are part of the International Series

Beginning last season, the NFL International Series now consists of three sub-series. There are the London Games, of course, but there are also the NFL Germany games and the NFL Mexico games. Last year was the first edition of NFL Germany. Tampa Bay beat Seattle 21-16 at Allianz Arena in Munich. 

The Chiefs have only played two international games and they are 2-0. Kansas City was set to play the LA Rams in Mexico in 2018, but the field conditions forced the game to remain in the US. Miami has played five international games. This will be the team’s first NFL Germany game. The Dolphins are 1-4 in the international series. The other NFL Germany game is set for next week. Indianapolis will take on New England, also in Frankfurt.

What Will the CFP Poll Look Like Now?

What a day in college football yesterday, especially in the Pac-12. Washington and USC did not disappoint. More on that in a moment. Then, there was Clemson’s upset of Notre Dame. Bedlam was exactly that. In what could be the final meeting of Oklahoma and Oklahoma State, the Cowboys upset the Sooners 27-24. 

Ohio State struggled with Rutgers early on before pulling away. Georgia got Missouri’s best shot. Wonder if those performances will affect this week’s CFP poll? We’ll find out Tuesday.

Here’s what’s trending today.

  1. $85 million not to coach: The Raiders are now paying Jon Gruden and Josh McDaniels a total of $85 million not to coach their team. NFL coaches negotiate these payments into their contracts if they are fired for simply sucking as a coach. Now, the Raiders need to find a new guy. That means even more millions!
  2. Offenses rule: The total for the Washington-USC game closed at 75.5. The two teams passed that before the third quarter was over. The No. 5 Huskies won 52-42 and the offenses combined for 1,087 yards of total offense. Washington RB Dillon Johnson had 256 yards rushing and four touchdowns.
  1. MLB’s top free agent: Shohei Ohtani won’t be able to pitch in 2024. He had surgery to repair a torn UCL in his elbow. However, he will be able to swing the bat and, because of that, Ohtani should command a pretty high price in free agency this offseason. The bidding war is about to start.
