Miami Dolphins (3-0) at New England Patriots (1-2)
Line: Patriots by 6.5
Yup…you’re not dreaming, the Dolphins are 3-0 while the Patriots are below .500. Tom Brady will turn things around this week.
Dr. Football: Take the Patriots to win and cover.
Houston Texans (0-3) at Indianapolis Colts (1-2)
Line: Colts by 1.5
Terrible start for the Texans especially with JJ Watt and DeShaun Watson healthy. Houston always struggles up north in Indy too.
Dr. Football: Take the Colts to win and cover.
Cincinnati Bengals (2-1) at Atlanta Falcons (1-2)
Line: Falcons by 5.5
Atlanta’s schedule doesn’t get any easier this week while the Bengals remain on the road. Look for Matt Ryan to figure things out at home.
Dr. Football: Take the Falcons to win and cover.
Buffalo Bills (1-2) at Green Bay Packers (1-1-1)
Line: Packers by 10
Great job, Buffalo. You ruined all those Survivor Pools. Your prize?
A crushing defeat in Green Bay.
Dr. Football: Take the Packers to win and cover.
Detroit Lions (1-2) at Dallas Cowboys (1-2)
Line: Cowboys by 3
The Cowboys got their butts handed to them last week, while the Lions shocked even their fans with a home win against the Patriots. Lions will try to build on that in a very hostile environment.
Dr. Football: Take the Lions in an upset.
New York Jets (1-2) at Jacksonville Jaguars (2-1)
Line: Jaguars by 7.5
The Jaguars will come out hard after last week’s loss against the Titans. Jets QB Sam Darnold won’t stand a chance against Jacksonville’s defense.
Dr. Football: Take the Jaguars to win and cover.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2-1) at Chicago Bears (2-1)
Line: Bears by 3
Two up and coming teams who have surprised a lot of people thus far. An even match up; so go with the home squad.
Dr. Football: Take the Bears to win and cover.
Philadelphia Eagles (2-1) at Tennessee Titans (2-1)
Line: Eagles by 4
With Carson Wentz back, it's tough to bet against Philly when they're facing a mediocre team, although the Titans played well enough last week to knock off the Jaguars.
Dr. Football: Take the Eagles to win but not cover.
Seattle Seahawks (1-2) at Arizona Cardinals (0-3)
Line: Seahawks by 3
Seattle figured it out last week, so they can basically practice that in Arizona where the Cardinals won’t put up any type of fight.
Dr. Football: Take the Seahawks to win and cover.
Cleveland Browns (1-1-1) at Oakland Raiders (0-3)
Line: Raiders by 2.5
It had to happen eventually, but don’t let the Browns fool you into thinking they’re any good. Oakland is due.
Dr. Football: Take the Raiders to win and cover.
San Francisco 49ers (1-2) at Los Angeles Chargers (1-2)
Line: Chargers by 10.5
No Jimmy Garoppolo? No chance San Fran.
Dr. Football: Take the Chargers to win and cover.
New Orleans Saints (2-1) at New York Giants (1-2)
Line: Saints by 3.5
Drew Brees should have an easy time against the Giants defense that won’t put up much of a fight.
Dr. Football: Take the Saints to win and cover.
Baltimore Ravens (2-1) at Pittsburgh Steelers (1-1-1)
Line: Steelers by 3
A few years ago, these teams really put on a show when they faced each other, now not so much. But they still hate each other. Pittsburgh has won the last three in this series, go with momentum.
Dr. Football: Take the Steelers to win and cover.
Kansas City Chiefs (3-0) at Denver Broncos (2-1)
Line: Chiefs by 5
Great Monday nighter with two teams that play hard against each other. The Chiefs will not go 16-0; Denver won’t let that happen at home.
Dr. Football: Take the Broncos in an upset.
