Minnesota Vikings (5-2) vs. Cleveland Browns (0-7)
Line: Vikings by 9.5
It's tough to imagine the Browns being able to score more than 10 or 13 points against a strong Minnesota defense with Deshone Kizer at QB. Take the Vikings to win and cover.
Chicago Bears (3-4) at New Orleans Saints (4-2)
Line: Saints by 9
Chicago surprised most last week by beating the Panthers, but the Dome is a tough place to win. New Orleans has won the last three times these teams have met, Sunday will make it four. Take the Saints to win and cover.
Atlanta Falcons (3-3) at New York Jets (3-4)
Line: Falcons by 4.5
Atlanta is playing consecutive road games and they didn’t looked good at all on offense last week in New England. But I think they’ll bounce back nicely here. Take the Falcons to win and cover.
|The Sports Doctor|
Line: Buccaneers by 2
Carolina is playing consecutive road games and Tampa Bay is home for the first time in three weeks. Both teams are struggling offensively, but go with the home team. Take the Buccaneers to win and cover.
San Francisco 49ers (0-7) at Philadelphia Eagles (6-1)
Line: Eagles by 13
Carson Wentz vs. the third-worst defense in the NFL? San Fran’s winless streak will continue. Take the Eagles to win and cover.
Oakland Raiders (3-3) at Buffalo Bills (4-2)
Line: Bills by 3
The Raiders offense woke up last Thursday, but their defense is awful. Look for Buffalo’s LeSean McCoy to have a big day. Take the Bills to win and cover.
Indianapolis Colts (2-5) at Cincinnati Bengals (2-4)
Line: Bengals by 10
Indy is terrible; they couldn't score last week at home against Jacksonville, and they won’t score on the road against the Bengals defense. Take the Bengals to win and cover.
Los Angeles Chargers (3-4) at New England Patriots (5-2)
Line: Patriots by 7
Even though the Chargers shut down the Broncos last week, they’ll be in tough against Tom Brady and company who returned to form last week. They’ll keep it up. Take the Patriots to win and cover.
Houston Texans (3-3) at Seattle Seahawks (4-2)
Line: Seahawks by 5.5
Houston’s rookie QB Deshaun Watson will get his official welcome to the NFL moment in Seattle, only there won’t be a red carpet. Take the Seahawks to win and cover.
Dallas Cowboys (3-3) at Washington Redskins (3-3)
Line: Cowboys by 2
Dallas looked like the Cowboys we expected to see last week blasting the 49ers. They love these NFC match ups too. Take the Cowboys to win and cover.
Pittsburgh Steelers (5-2) at Detroit Lions (3-3)
Line: Steelers by 2.5
Pittsburgh manhandled the Bengals last week and the momentum should continue in Detroit despite the Lions coming off their bye. Take the Steelers to win and cover.
Denver Broncos (3-3) at Kansas City Chiefs (5-2)
Line: Chiefs by 7
The Chiefs went from being the unanimous No. 1 in the league to losing two games in five days. Facing the listless Broncos at home should fix things. Take the Chiefs to win and cover.
