Apologies for the delay. I blame procrastination.
Bills over Jets
As my fellow bloggers can prove, I unfortunately picked the Bills. I also dropped Robby Anderson in fantasy.
Saints over Bucs
New Orleans sits atop the NFC South, and that won’t change against the Bucs.
Falcons over Panthers
The defending NFC champions need a win, and will get one here in a close contest. Matt Ryan should get back on track against a banged-up Panthers defense.
Rams over Giants
The Giants will struggle to reach 10 points against this vaunted defense, but Los Angeles will have no such problems.
Titans over Ravens (lock)
Marcus Mariota must love playing in the AFC. This week’s victim is the hapless Ravens defense, who seemed surprisingly competent against a quarterback-less Dolphins team. Don’t expect that to continue.
Jaguars over Bengals
Cincinnati will lose to the AFC’s most intriguing team. Jacksonville will reach 150 yards rushing, and A.J. Green will be bottled up by Jalen Ramsey. Blowout alert.
Eagles over Broncos
No debate here.
Texans over Colts
Seahawks over Redskins
What is it with all these easy games?
49ers over Cardinals (upset)
Surprised? Jimmy Garoppolo will provide a spark to this offense, and the Cardinals look destined for a top-10 pick.
Chiefs over Cowboys (marquee matchup)
Dark Prescott will struggle against Kansas City’s shutdown secondary, and Dallas’s defense won’t be able to contain Kareem Hunt.
Dolphins over Raiders
Miami will not lose 40-0 again. Oakland should consider tanking.
Lions over Packers
Green Bay is 0-2 since Aaron Rodgers went down, and it could be a long year for the Packers. Detroit will further its case for a wild card.
