San Francisco 49ers at Indianapolis Colts(-1.5)
This is a matchup between two bad football teams. When it comes down, to it I will take the home team in this one.
Prediction: Colts 12 49ers 9
Los Angeles Chargers at New York Giants(-3.5)
This is a match up between two winless teams that came into the season with playoff aspirations. The Giants offensive line is just flat out bad and the Chargers defensive line will get constant pressure on QB Eli Manning, leading to a Chargers win.
Prediction: Chargers 23 Giants 20
Buffalo Bills at Cincinnati Bengals(-3)
The Bills are looking at a trap game here. They are coming off a huge win in Atlanta and I think this will be a tough one for them. The Bengals have played much better after letting Offensive Coordinator Ken Zampese go. Since that time QB Andy Dalton has done a complete turn around and is playing well. I expect the Bengals to win a close one here.
Prediction: Bengals 24 Bills 20
New York Jets at Cleveland Browns(Even)
Neither team is very good, but the Jets play very hard and that will get them the win here.
Prediction: Jets 17 Browns 14
Jacksonville Jaguars at Pittsburgh Steelers(-8.5)
The Steelers have not played up to there capabilities this year, while the Jaguars are up and down from one week to the next.
Prediction: Steelers 27 Jaguars 17
Tennessee Titans at Miami Dolphins(No Line)
Hard to pick the Dolphins against anybody right now. They seem to be a team in turmoil. The Titans may be missing Marcus Mariota again. The running game, however, should be enough to lead the Titans to a victory.
Prediction: Titans 17 Dolphins 10
Arizona Cardinals at Philadelphia Eagles(-6.5)
The Cardinals aren’t very good and the Eagles look to be a contender. I look for the Eagles to handle business at home.
Prediction: Eagles 31 Cardinals 14
Carolina Panthers at Detroit Lions(-2.5)
The Detroit Lions are better than people realize and the Panthers are still going to struggle on offense in this game. Do not read too much into Cam Newton’s performance last week against a bad Patriots defense.
Prediction: Lions 24 Panthers 16
Seattle Seahawks at Los Angeles Rams(-1)
The Rams, lead by Aaron Donald, will harass Seahawks QB Russell Wilson all day and will take away the Seahawks ability to run the ball. The Rams will prove they are for real here.
Prediction: Rams 24 Seahawks 17
Baltimore Ravens at Oakland Raiders(-2)
The Ravens are bad and the Raiders are in disarray. Take the home team in this one.
Prediction: Raiders 16 Ravens 13
Green Bay Packers at Dallas Cowboys(-2)
Playoff rematch and the Cowboys are having a tough season so far. On the other side, the Packers are once again decimated by injuries. I like the Cowboys in a close one.
Prediction: Cowboys 34 Packers 31
Kansas City Chiefs(-1) at Houston Texans
This is a great matchup and I think it will come down to the Texans ability to slow down Kareem Hunt and force Alex Smith to beat them.
Prediction: Texans 28 Chiefs 24
Minnesota Vikings at Chicago Bears(No Line)
The Vikings defense wins them this game as the defense will own Bears rookie QB Mitchell Trubisky by the end of the game.
Prediction: Vikings 27 Bears 3
