Note – Expect the Bears to come out an play well. I am envisioning Forte having a monster game. Bears will take this but the Panthers will make it close at the end.
Buffalo Bills @ Cincinnati Bengals
Score: Bills 23 – Bengals 20
Spread: Bills (-2.5)
Note – At 3-0 it’s hard to imagine the Bills are only a 2.5 point favorite. I think this is a trap game for the Bills and wouldn’t be surprised if the Bengals shocked the Bills. I’m expecting a closer game than people think but the Bills coming out the winner.
Tennessee Titans @ Cleveland Browns
Score: Titans 27 – Browns 17
Spread: Titans (-1.5)
Note – The loss of Britt hurts the Titans offense big time but I expect CJ to have a breakout game. Both Running and Receiving. The Browns I think are not as good as their record. We will see on Sunday.
Detroit Lions @ Dallas Cowboys
Score: Cowboys 24 – Lions 20
Spread: Cowboys (-2.5)
Note – This could be game of the week. I think this will be a battle from start to finish. The Lions can very well win this and be a shocking 4-0. But, I expect the Cowboys to grind another win with the winning factor being turnovers.
Pittsburgh Steelers @ Houston Texans
Score: Steelers 34 – Texans 31
Spread: Steelers (+3.5)
Note – I think this one turns into a shootout but will remain close. The Texans very well can win but I’m taking the Points and the Upset win over the Texans.
New Orleans Saints @ Jacksonville Jaguars
Score: Saints 38 – Jaguars 13
Spread: Saints (-7.5)
Note – I think this game gets ugly with the Saints scoring a bunch in a lopsided win.
Minnesota Vikings @ Kansas City Chiefs
Score: Vikings 17 – Chiefs 13
Spread: Vikings (-1.5)
Note – If the Vikings can play all four quarters and not just the first two they can win this. I see this being a defensive battle as well as a offensive struggle.
San Francisco 49ers @ Philadephia Eagles
Score: Eagles 27 – 49ers 16
Spread: Eagles (-6.5)
Note – With Gore hurt, I see Alex Smith passing a lot more then he wants to which I think will turn into turnovers. I see the Eagles edging out the 49ers.
Washington Redskins @ St. Louis Rams
Score: Rams 23 – Redskins 17
Spread: Rams (-.5)
Note – I have a good feeling that the Rams win their first game of the season. The Redskins D looks solid but on offense I think they are too sloppy.
Denver Broncos @ Green Bay Packers
Score: Packers 44 – Broncos 23
Spread: Packers (-13.5)
Note – I’m not impressed by the Packers D but the offense puts up points after points. I expect an ugly blowout win.
New York Giants @ Arizona Cardinals
Score: Giants 27 – Cardinals 13
Spread: Giants (-1.5)
Note – The Giants defense will totally disrupt the Cardinals offense, I expect an easy win for the Giants.
Atlanta Falcons @ Seattle Seahawks
Score: Falcons 38 – Seahawks 17
Spread: Falcons (-4.5)
Note – Another blowout coming although Quest field is a special. I just dont think the Hawks passing game is much, which makes the running game poor too. I’m not a believer in the Falcons D but the Offense is explosive. Expect a big day from Julio Jones.
New England Patriots @ Oakland Raiders
Score: Patriots 23 – Raiders 31
Spread: Raiders (+4.5)
Note – I smell Upset here, the Patriots D is one of the worst in the league if not the worst. The Raiders are going to pound the ball with Run DMC, and the Patriots will be shocked for a second week in a row.
Miami Dolphins @ San Diego Chargers
Score: Dolphins 21 – Chargers 20
Spread: Dolphins (+7.5)
Note – I’ll admit i’m a biased Dolphins fan but I smell Upset here because the Chargers are playing hurt and we are on the road where we play best. Exclude this prediction if you must cause again i’m a Dolphins fan and can’t root against my team nor pick against it haha.
New York Jets @ Baltimore Ravens
Score: Jets 17 –Ravens 14
Spread: Jets (-3.5)
Note – A defensive game with key turnovers will decide this game. Jets squeak out a close game.
Indianapolis Colts @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Score: Bucs 30 – Colts 20
Spread: Bucs (-9.5)
Note – I think the Bucs will take this easily and will cover the spread. The Colts will score a late touchdown to make it respectable. I’m not too big into Painter so we will see how he can perform in an entire game.
