Anthony Fiuza – Staff Writer
Philadelphia Eagles at Green Bay Packers: Philly is in disarray right now and the running game just isn’t cutting it. Aaron Rodgers should have another good day against that Eagles’ secondary.
Pack remains unbeaten.
I’ll roll with New England.
Tennessee Titans at Atlanta Falcons: At this point, Atlanta should look into firing head coach Dan Quinn after losing to Indy last week. However, I’ll take Matty Ice to win at home and he should get plenty of chances since the Titans don’t have much on offense.
Give me the Falcons.
Kansas City Chiefs at Detroit Lions: This looks like a potential upset, but I don’t trust the Detriot ‘D’ to contain Patrick Mahomes.
KC wins this game.
Colts win again.
Los Angeles Chargers vs Miami Dolphins: Bolts should be on upset alert, but I’ll go with Philip Rivers and the Bolts’ offense.
Baltimore Ravens vs Cleveland Browns: Cleveland will have a hard time against the Baltimore defense and the Ravens are trying to get over a tough loss in KC. Baker Mayfield will get hit a ton.
Ravens rebound at home.
Skins get their first W of the year.
Seattle Seahawks vs Arizona Cardinals: Seattle suffered a tough loss vs New Orleans and will take their anger out on the Cards. Kyler Murray will get hit a few times.
Hawks win on the road.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs Los Angeles Rams: Eventually LA is going to lose a game, however Jameis Winston will turn the ball over and the Bucs should consider replacing him.
Rams win big.
I’ll take the Bears to win this matchup.
Jacksonville Jaguars vs Denver Broncos: Gardner Minshew looks good, but Denver is hungry for a win.
Broncos take the W behind stellar defense and clutch Joe Flacco.
Dallas Cowboys vs New Orleans Saints: I know the Saints played well last week, but Teddy Bridgewater will make a few mistakes against the Dallas ‘D’.
Boys win again

Philadelphia at Green Bay
Green Bay beats up on the Philadelphia Eagles sending them to 1-3 on the
year. It should be a close match but one the Eagles drop just like last
Giants vs Washington
Daniel Jones continues to impress as the Giants defeat the dysfunctional
Kansas City vs Detroit
The Chiefs continue playing great football, defeating the Lions in a
high scoring affair.
Atlanta Falcons vs Tennessee Titans
Matt Ryan and the Falcons offense impresses, while the Atlanta defense
holds a struggling Titans offensive unit to single digits. Look for
Julio Jones to score multiple times.
Browns vs Ravens
The overhyped Browns fall again. This time Lamar Jackson and company
come away with the victory after a close loss last week to the Chiefs.
Raiders vs Colts
Indy comes away with another win, while John Gruden’s squad is left
shaking its head yet again.
Bills vs Pats
Buffalo’s undefeated season comes to an end. New England shows their
divisional rival who the real deal is.
Houston vs Carolina
Deshaun Watson shows up big in this game. Carolina drops another game in
a key divisional game.
LA Chargers vs Dolphins
It’s the Chargers turn to embarrass Miami, who will remain winless after
4 weeks of play.
Tampa Bay vs LA Rams
The Rams get past the Buccaneers in a high scoring game. This game will
either be a blow out early or the Rams pulling away in the second half.
Seattle vs Arizona
The Seahawks rebound with a win against the lowly Cardinals.
Vikings vs Bears
This matchup is one of the better games of the week. Chicago should win
this one though behind an intimidating defensive unit.
Jags vs Broncos
The Broncos continue to be a dumpster fire as the Jags win behind their
backup quarterback for another week.
Cowboys vs Saints
The Cowboys find a way to win again by exposing the Saints’ secondary
unit. This game should also be one of the better matchups to watch this week.
Cincinnati at Pittsburgh
Pittsburgh earns a key divisional win against Cincy. Once again a backup
QB impresses in an NFL game this season.

Philadelphia at Green Bay
> Green Bay – I have been impressed with the Packers defense this month. Both teams had a short week to prepare. For this reason, I fancy the home team. The Green Bay offense starts to take shape, keeping their quarterback and head coach happy.
New England at Buffalo
> New England – It’s been a good start for Buffalo, but they need to be able to score a lot. I could see Tom Brady throwing an interception, but even in Orchard Park, the Patriots pull away in the second half.
Cleveland at Baltimore
> Baltimore – Cleveland is desperate for a win to get their season back on track with the tough schedule. They will play better offensively, but I think Baltimore gets the fast start, winning a tight game.
Oakland at Indianapolis
> Indianapolis – The Colts got a nice win last week against the Falcons. They know that the Texans are their competition needing to keep pace with them. Indianapolis beats Oakland with ease.
Tennessee at Atlanta
> Atlanta – Tennessee had a little extra time to prepare for this one, but Atlanta bounces back to get back to .500. The Titans have not looked very good since Week 1.
Los Angeles Chargers at Miami
> Los Angeles Chargers – The Dolphins continue to inch closer to the number one pick in April. Los Angeles takes out their frustration from Sunday by winning handily.
Kansas City at Detroit
> Detroit – I enjoy watching Darius Slay play defense. He will have a big impact in this game and the Lions are the ones to hand the Chiefs their first loss of the season.
Washington at New York Giants
> New York Giants – Daniel Jones will continue for the sports talk radio world. The Giants were fortunate to escape, but Washington will have to wait for their first win of 2019.
Carolina at Houston
> Houston – Carolina quarterback Kyle Allen will find the Texans defense a major step up in class after scoring 38 in Glendale. J.J. Watt might be double-teamed, but that will leave chances for other defenders to sack the newcomer.
Tampa Bay at Los Angeles Rams
> Los Angeles Rams – The Rams did not play a great game last time out. Todd Gurley wears down the Buccaneers defense this Sunday for a big day rushing. Los Angeles should be playing their backups in the second half this week, finishing with an unblemished record in September.
Seattle at Arizona
> Seattle – The Seahawks get back on track offensively, taking better care of the ball. They also will be pooch kicking on special teams this week after allowing a score in their Week 3 loss versus the New Orleans Saints.
Minnesota at Chicago
> Minnesota – the Vikings got swept last year by the Bears. Minnesota knows in order to compete in the NFC North they need divisional wins on the road. I think they walk out of Soldier Field with a 3-1 record.
Jacksonville at Denver
> Jacksonville – Gardner Minshew II outplays the former Super Bowl winner Joe Flacco in his second road start. The Jaguars defense creates three turnovers to keep Denver without a win.
Dallas at New Orleans
Cincinnati at Pittsburgh
Pittsburgh – both teams seek their first win. This will not be an easy watch, but the Steelers defense will have their way, creating turnovers to make Mason Rudolph’s task easier.

Eagles at Packers
The Eagles are slowly falling apart. Meanwhile, the Packers are one of the stronger teams in the NFL this season.
Redskins at Giants
Daniel Jones had a quality start against the Bucs. He could see similar success against the ‘Skins. The Redskins have question marks on offense. This could be a shootout with two bad defenses/
Chiefs at Lions
The Chiefs played their toughest opponent to date and held them off. The Lions will have a tough time stopping Patrick Mahomes and company.
Titans at Falcons
If the Titans offense starts to click that could spell trouble for the Falcons. Especially since the Titans def is the strong side of the ball.
Browns at Ravens
Lamar Jackson is as strong as they come right now. The Browns are not living up to the hype.
Patriots at Bills
New Era field is going to be rocking for this early season NFL matchup. This Bills defense could give Brady fits. Upset Special!!
Raiders at Colts
The Raiders are struggling after a strong week one showing. However, the Colts are surprising the NFL. I like the Colts at home.
Panthers at Texans
Panthers received a great NFL game from Kyle Allen. Just not sure he can do that against a JJ Watt run defense.
Chargers at Dolphins
Dolphins stay close early and fold late. That is the story all year.
Bucs at Rams
This one should have the biggest margin of victory on the weekend. Rams should score at will.
Seahawks at Cardinals
Russell Wilson should fair well against a Cardinals defense that allowed 38 points last week. Seattle’s offense is better than Carolina’s.
Vikings at Bears
Low scoring affair. Classic NFC North NFL matchup.
Jaguars at Broncos
Broncos are in need of their first win. This is the week. The Broncos defense is tough at home.
Cowboys at Saints
Saints got all-around production last week. They will need it again against the high-flying NFL team known as the Redskins.
Bengals at Steelers
One team will get their first win on Monday Night Football. Hard to go against the home team in a divisional matchup.
