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.

New England Patriots vs Buffalo Bills: Buffalo can make it tough on Tom Brady, but ultimately Josh Allen won’t find much success against the Pats’ defense.

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.

Oakland Raiders at Indianapolis Colts: Indy looks solid with Jacoby Brissett at quarterback and I expect Marlon Mack to play some good football.

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.

Chargers win.

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.

Washington Redskins vs New York Giants: I was going to take the G-Men, but with Saquon Barkley out for a few weeks, Washington should be able to make plays against Daniel Jones.

Skins get their first W of the year.

Carolina Panthers vs Houston Texans: I know the Panthers looked good last week with Kyle Allen, but Houston, at home, should create turnovers and give Deshaun Watson extra possessions.

Texans win.

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.

Minnesota Vikings vs Chicago Bears: Tough divisional game on the road, which means Kirk Cousins won’t show up. Mitchell Trubisky played well last week, is this a sign of things to come?

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

Thursday:

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

week.

Sunday:

Giants vs Washington

Daniel Jones continues to impress as the Giants defeat the dysfunctional

Washington Redskins.

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.

Monday:

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 BayI 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 EnglandIt’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

> BaltimoreCleveland 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

> IndianapolisThe 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

> AtlantaTennessee 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 ChargersThe 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

> DetroitI 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 GiantsDaniel 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

> HoustonCarolina 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 RamsThe 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

> SeattleThe 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

> Minnesotathe 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

> JacksonvilleGardner 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

> Dallasin last year’s game, the Cowboys defense found a way to slow down Drew Brees and Alvin Kamara. The Saints scored an impressive win in Seattle, but I think Dallas gets their fourth win.

Cincinnati at Pittsburgh

Pittsburghboth 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.

Packers Win

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/

Redskins Win

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.

Chiefs Win

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.

Titans Win

Browns at Ravens

Lamar Jackson is as strong as they come right now. The Browns are not living up to the hype.

Ravens Win

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!!

Bills Win

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.

Colts Win

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.

Texans Win

Chargers at Dolphins

Dolphins stay close early and fold late. That is the story all year.

Chargers WIn

Bucs at Rams

This one should have the biggest margin of victory on the weekend. Rams should score at will.

Rams Win

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.

Seahawks Win

Vikings at Bears

Low scoring affair. Classic NFC North NFL matchup.

Bears Win

Jaguars at Broncos

Broncos are in need of their first win. This is the week. The Broncos defense is tough at home.

Broncos Win

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.

Cowboys Win

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.

Steelers Win
