Line: Packers by 7
Green Bay squeaked by the Bengals last week with a lot of injured players missing, while Chicago surprised a lot of people with a win over the Steelers. The Bears won’t have the same luck on the road at Lambeau. Take the packers to win and cover.
New Orleans Saints (1-2) vs. Miami Dolphins (1-1)
Line: Saints by 3
Miami is technically the home team in this one, but in reality they haven’t played at home yet this season. And if the same team that were horrible against the Jets last week, Drew Brees should have a big day. Take the Saints to win and cover.
Carolina Panthers (2-1) at New England Patriots (2-1)
Line: Patriots by 8.5
Despite their record Carolina, has struggled on offense so far this season while New England has defense issues. But Tom Brady will find a way to win at home in a close one. Take the Patriots to win but not cover.
Los Angeles Rams (2-1) at Dallas Cowboys (2-1)
Line: Cowboys by 7.5
Dallas looked good at Arizona on Monday night. The Rams have had troubles on defense, which isn’t good playing in Dallas. I smell blow out. Take the Cowboys to win and cover.
Detroit Lions (2-1) at Minnesota Vikings (2-1)
Line: No Line
Minnesota’s defense slowed the Bucs last week, while Detroit lost an emotional one against Atlanta. I don’t think the Lions recover. Take the Vikings.
Tennessee Titans (2-1) at Houston Texans (1-2)
Line: Titans by 1.5

Jacksonville Jaguars (2-1) at New York Jets (1-2)
Line: Jaguars by 3.5
Jacksonville looked like contenders beating up on the Ravens in London last week, and now face a Jets team who’s defense looked good against the Dolphins. I think the Jags will get over their jet lag (pun intended) and win big. Take the Jauars to win and cover.
Cincinnati Bengals (0-3) at Cleveland Browns (0-3)
Line: Bengals by 3
Somebody’s gotta win right? This one won’t be on ESPN Classics anytime soon. Take the Bengals to win and cover.
Pittsburgh Steelers (2-1) at Baltimore Ravens (2-1)
Line: Steelers by 3
Joe Flacco looked terrible last week, and the Ravens are banged up too. I think the Steelers avenge the loss in Chicago in a big way. Take the Steelers to win and cover.
Buffalo Bills (2-1) at Atlanta Falcons (3-0)
Line: Falcons by 8
Buffalo has only allowed two touchdowns all season, but they haven't seen an offense like this. Expect Matt Ryan to eat that over acheiving defense up. Take the Falcons to win and cover
New York Giants (0-3) at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (1-1)
Line: Buccaneers by 3
Tampa Bay returns home after being embarrassed in Minnesota, while the Giants have been embarrassing all year. Expect a low scoring game here. Take the Buccaneers to win but not cover.
Philadelphia Eagles (2-1) at Los Angeles Chargers (0-3)
Line: Chargers by 1
The Eagles defense will cause problems for Phillip Rivers who will be unable to get anything going in their makeshift home. Take the Eagles in an upset.
San Francisco 49ers (0-3) at Arizona Cardinals (1-2)
Line: Cardinals by 7
Arizona’s injuries are piling up, but they held up for a while in the Monday nighter. Good to stay at home and face the talentless 49ers. Take the Cardinals to win and cover.
Oakland Raiders (2-1) at Denver Broncos (2-1)
Line: Broncos by 2.5
In my mind this will be the game of the week. Both teams didn’t look good on the road last week, but Denver should be able to get back on track at home. Take the Broncos to win and cover.
Indianapolis Colts (1-2) at Seattle Seahawks (1-2)
Line: Seahawks by 13
Sure Jacoby Brissett looked good for the Colts at home against the lowly Browns…but this is in Seattle. Look for the Seahawks to get it together in a big way. Take the Seahawks to win and cover.
Washington Redskins (2-1) at Kansas City Chiefs (3-0)
Line: Chiefs by 7
The Redskins pulled off the win against a tough Raiders team last week, but the Kansas City defense is a lot better; and the fact they are at home will help them stay undefeated. Take the Chiefs to win and cover.
