Jacksonville Jaguars (2-5) at Tennessee Titans (4-4) | Titans win 36 – 22. With the running game going well for the Titans, it seems to be opening up more opportunities for Marcus Mariota. The Titans have a good young team, let’s see if they can build on their youth. | My pick, the Titans.
Washington Redskins (4-3-1) at Cincinnati Bengals (3-4-1) | Tie game 27 – 27. This makes the 2nd tie game within the last two weeks. | My pick, the Redskins.
Arizona Cardinals (3-4-1) at Carolina Panthers (2-5) | Panthers win 30 – 20. A rare win this year for the Panthers which puts them at 2 for the season. Let’s see if they can get a streak going next week against the Rams. | My pick, the Cardinals.
New England Patriots (7-1) at Buffalo Bills (4-4) | Patriots win 41 – 25. The Pats are playing lights out football since the return of Tom Brady. Not only is the offense on key, but the defense is more relentless as well. The Bills had one of the better defenses in the league coming into this game, but we’re talking about the Pats here. | My pick, the Patriots.
New York Jets (3-5) at Cleveland Browns (0-8) | Jets win 31 – 28. From the looks of it, the Browns actually tried to pull out a win in this game keeping it close, but the Jets just gave a bit more. I’m not sure if the Browns are fighting for the #1 draft pick next year, or fighting for their 1st win of the season. | My pick, the Jets.
Detroit Lions (4-4) at Houston Texans (5-3) | Texans win 20 – 13. The Texans are quietly winning, and much credit should be given to their defense. | My pick, the Lions.
Seattle Seahawks (4-2-1) at New Orleans Saints (3-4) | Saints win 25 – 20. I don’t feel the Seahawks will win in a shootout with any high powered offense, but they will play some good defense. It wasn’t enough this week as the Saints pull in their 3rd win of the season upsetting Russell Wilson and company. | My pick, the Seahawks.
Oakland Raiders (6-2) at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (3-4) | Raiders win 30 – 24. If someone give you a win on a silver platter, it’s best that you take the win. The Bucs had every opportunity in this game to win easily, from the Raiders compiling over 200 yards in penalties to the botches field goals from Sebastian Janikowski. A win against the Raiders would have put the Bucs one game above .500. Scary win for the Raiders. | My pick, the Raiders.
Kansas City Chiefs (5-2) at Indianapolis Colts (3-5) | Chiefs win 30 – 14. The Chiefs are in an interesting division, where three teams are above a 71% winning percentage. | My pick, the Chiefs.
San Diego Chargers at Denver Broncos | Broncos win 27 – 19. I have a lot of hope for this Chargers team, who seems to have a good defense with the addition of Joey Bosa. The Broncos pulled out a win despite making a lot of changes this past with due to injuries. But those injuries didn’t damper the Broncos defense. | My pick, the Chargers.
Green Bay Packers (4-3) at Atlanta Falcons (5-3) | Falcons win 33 – 32. The Falcons were starting to look like last year’s team, and they started off strong and ending the season poorly. With this win against the Packers, it keeps them in the #1 spot in their division. The Falcons last three games have been decided by 4 points or less, let’s see if they can get a streak going against the Bucs next week. | My pick, the Packers.
Philadelphia Eagles (4-3) at Dallas Cowboys (6-1) | Cowboys win 29 – 23. This was easily the game of the week, and by far the most anticipated. The Cowboys extend their winning streak now to six games, with a great performance once again from the rookie duo Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott. Both of these teams are in a division where everyone is currently above .500. Something has to give. | My pick, the Cowboys.
Minnesota Vikings (5-2) at Chicago Bears (2-6) | Bears win 20 – 10. Good win for the Bears, and a horrible loss for the Vikings. The offensive line played poorly this game for the Vikings, overall the team is lucky to remain #1 in the NFC North due to the Packers loss. | My pick, the Vikings.
