PIT @ CLE – PIT
CLE may get more net yards per game on average, but they also allow more net yards. PIT in entering with a four-game win streak, and CLE will be looking for their second consecutive win. However, PIT has a slightly stronger defense that should hold back CLE.
NYJ @ WAS – NYJ
The Jets have not had a good season. Being 2-7 isn’t something to brag about. However, WAS is 1-8. Also, not good. The Jets are coming in after a win against the Giants. If the Jets play like the did against the Cowboys, they’re a sure-fire win against the Redskins.
JAX @ IND – IND
Minshew has thrown more yards than Brisset, Fournette has more rushing yards than Mack, and Chark has almost twice as many receiving yards than Hilton. However, Nick Foles is back and with the sudden switch in QB could effect the team. Despite this, the Colts are 5-4 and JAX is 4-5. Although IND has a higher point average per game, they have less net yards. And it could be yardage that translates to 1st downs that make the game.
BUF @ MIA – BUF
The Dolphins started the first eight weeks of the season win-less, only to come back and win their last two games. The Dolphins never had an issue scoring (they didn’t score a lot, but they could get on the board), but their defense is what could improve. They’ll need to tighten their defense to hold of the Bills.
DAL @ DET – DAL
QB Stafford is questionable for Sunday’s game due to his back. If he is playing, the Lions will have a better chance against the Cowboys. However, Dallas has one the best offenses this season, so they’ll most likely score against Detroit’s weak defense.
HOU @ BAL – BAL
BAL is the only team to have beaten NE so far this season. QB Jackson is powerhouse that’s hard to stop. He’s rushed 702 yards and passed 2,036 yards. On HOU, Watson and Hyde are a strong duo, but BAL’s rush defense is one of the best. They’ve allowed few touchdowns than HOU has all season.
ATL @ CAR – CAR
The Falcons are coming off a major upset against the Saints. But, the Panthers aren’t the Saints, and most likely the Falcons won’t be able to pull that upset-stunt again. With Devonta freeman doubtful to place and Austin Hooper questionable, they’ll be missing two of their key players, giving CAR the perfect opportunity to win.
NO @ TB – NO
After losing to the Falcons, the Saints will be looking to bounce back. And against TB, they have the perfect opportunity. TB has the #1 rushing defense, but the 32nd best passing defense. Luckily, NO is in the top ten for passing offenses. No surprise here if NO throws the ball more than runs it.
DEN @ MIN – MIN
Kirk Cousins has three times as many touchdowns as Joe Flacco, and Cook has twice the number of touchdowns. The Broncos are no longer what they were a few years ago when they won the Super Bowl. MIN has a strong offense, which shown during last week’s game. More than likely, MIN will get this W.
ARI @ SF – SF
SEA beat SF last Monday night in OT. With Kittle and Gould out, other players had to step up, and the backup kicker could not fill Gould’s shoe. He lost them the game. Luckily, ARI is one of the worst teams in the league, so no doubt, SF should be able to bounce back from their last loss.
NE @ PHI – NE
Before their bye week, NE lost to BAL. So, coming off their bye week, NE should be ready to win again. The Eagles aren’t what they were last year (the Super Bowl curse is real), and the Patriots should be able to become 9-1.
CIN @ OAK – OAK
CIN is 0-9. OAK is 5-4.
CHI @ LAR – LAR
The Bears have been unlucky this year. With a 4-5 record, the’ll play the Rams in LA, who are 5-4. Trubisky is just disappointing fans this year while Goff is staying (somewhat) on the radar. We should expect LAR is win this one.
KC @ LAC – KC
Mahomes is back! With him back, KC has a much better chance of winning agains the Chargers. The Chargers are inconsistent, full of surprises, so it’s hard to peg where they are on the threat-o-meter. However, Mahomes is consistent with his plays. So, if Mahomes back even 80%, KC will most likely win this game.
