NYG @ NE – NE
This shouldn’t be a surprise. New England is bound to win this game. They are 5-0 whereas New York is 2-3. NYG allows 321.8 passing and rushing yards per game on average. The Patriots allow 238.4 passing and rushing yards per game on average. Plus, the Giants have four key players out with injuries. We shouldn’t see any surprises tonight.
CAR @ TB – CAR
TB may get more points and yards on average per game than CAR, but they’re defense doesn’t measure up to the Panthers’s defense. TB allows an average of 323.6 passing yards alone compared to 197 passing yards allowed by CAR.
WAS @ MIA – WAS
Both WAS and MIA are due for a win this season. Despite being 0-5, WAS gets more yards and allows fewer yards than MIA. MIA has already allowed 19 TD’s this season, but WAS has allowed a close 17 TD’s.
NO @ JAX – NO
Jackson tends to get more yards than New Orleans does per game, but their weak defense outweighs their offensive yards. A promising Bridgewater for the Saints has a 70.2% accuracy whereas Minshew is only at 66.7% completion rate.
CIN @ BAL – BAL
BAL has a solid rushing game, and that put together with CIN defense, BAL is the clear winner. But most likely, it won’t be a shut out. CIN passing game matched with BAL low-ranked passing defense means we’ll be seeing CIN scoring, too.
SEA @ CLE – SEA
CLE shouldn’t be taken lightly, but they aren’t exactly a high ranking team. CLE is entering the game with a 2-3 record whereas the Seahawks will enter with a 4-1 record. We expect the Browns to stir up some action on the field.
PHI @ MIN – MIN
Both teams are 3-2. The Eagles allow more points per game than the Vikings, but the Eagles score more points compared to the Vikings. Odds are this will be another good game.
HOU @ KC – HOU
While these teams have fairly equal offensive games, we can expect KC to defend their home turf. With the Chiefs pushing out a an average of 29.6 points a game and the Texans producing 26.2 points per game, this should be high scoring. However, we should watch out for KC’s defense. It’s not the strongest and could lose them the game.
ATL @ ARI – ARI
Another good match-up. Both teams have won 1 game, and ARI tied in their opening game. That tie is the game changer for ARI. However, we should see both teams get on the scoreboard.
SF @ LAR – SF
SF may get LAR without Gurley. That alone will impact the Rams significantly. Both teams comfortably have strong offenses. LAR averages 29.2 points per game, and SF is a 31.8 average points a game. This game most likely will come down to the defenses.
TEN @ DEN – DEN
Denver had a rocky start to this season, which means they’re looking to secure another W. Overall, the Broncos have a stronger offense than the Titans, and with the game at Mile High, DEN will be looking to protect their home turf.
DAL @ NYJ – DAL
McCaffrey of CAR has more yards than the Jets do this season. ‘Nuff said.
PIT @ LAC – PIT
The Chargers’s passing game is on top so far this season. However, the Steelers have a better defense. Even though the Steelers don’t have the best record, they have played quite a few more challenging teams. The Chargers will have a tough time against the Steelers.
DET @ GB – GB
DET has one of the worst passing defenses allowing 280.8 yards on average per game. Interestingly, DET gains more yards. However, DET allows an average 23.8 points per game. And next to GB’s allowed 18.6 points per game, the Lions will have a harder time scoring and fending off GB.
