Raiders vs 49ers: Raiders 38-37
I’m trying to be optimistic here. While this game only has value in terms of draft positioning, both teams are dealing with having bad defenses and mediocre offenses. Oakland has a better offense in my opinion, so they will win a shootout. Hopefully.
Lions vs Vikings: Vikings 37-28
The Vikings offense cost them the game last week, and this week I believe they will take care of the ball, leading to a big time win against a Lions team that has just traded away their best receiver.
Steelers vs Ravens: Steelers 27-24
This should be a very good game, and I believe the Steelers will be out for revenge after the Ravens beat them badly last time. The Steelers offense seems to be clicking better, so I give them the edge.\
Jets vs Dolphins: Dolphins 34-27
The Jets haven’t looked good in back-to-back games. The dolphins haven’t looked good since their win streak ended. I think the Dolphins can do enough to beat the young Jets.
Chiefs vs Browns: Chiefs 47-28
I think this one could get ugly, fast. The Browns defense has been great at times this year, but also really bad too. The Browns are still a dumpster fire, but slightly less of one than last year. Chiefs win.
Bears vs Bills: Bears 28-13
The Bears have come down to Earth since their impressive start, and that could be blamed on Khalil Mack’s health. The Bears should still handle their business against a bad Bills team though.
Buccaneers vs Panthers: Panthers 37-27
FitzMagic won’t happen again. The Panthers look almost as good as they did when they lost the Super Bowl.
Falcons vs Redskins: Redskins 30-24
The Redskins should hold the Falcons’ offense to limited amounts of points, while the Redskins’ offense should move the ball at will.
Texans vs Broncos: Texans 37-21
The Texans look like one of the best teams in football. The Broncos over payed for Case Keenum and proved the Vikings right.
Chargers vs Seahawks: Chargers 27-24
This game should be close. The Chargers are a very hot team right now and could end up playing a game in February. The Seahawks don’t look as bad as people thought they would, but I don’t buy into their hype yet.
Rams vs Saints: Saints 31-28
This is the game of the week. The Saints will win because of the veteran leadership of Brees, and Goff will throw a crucial pick.
Packers vs Patriots: Patriots 24-18
The Pats are just too good. Plus, the motivation of Rodgers getting so much praise will push Brady over the top.
Titans vs Cowboys: Cowboys 24-14
The Titans will keep it close, but the Cowboys new offense will do enough to help out their defense.
