BUCCANERS 34, FALCONS 28
No Julio, no hope. Expect high scoring but Brady and the Bucs get a chance to get humming.
NINERS 23, COWBOYS 22
Dalton has proven capable as Dak’s replacement but Kyle Shanahan will create enough offence to usurp the injuries his team has copped.
TITANS 30, LIONS 14
Stafford unlikely, so the script is this… Henry runs riot, back-up QB forced to throw the Lions back into the game. That ends one way.
COLTS 30, TEXANS 24
The Deshaun factor lures me in and I’m not huge on Indy but they’ve won nine games and Houston have won four.
DOLPHINS 23, PATRIOTS 20
Belichick is a god against rookie quarterbacks. But he usually has Tom Brady aiding his cause. Not this time, Tua and Flores win.
VIKINGS 24, BEARS 20
Minnesota have been a letdown this season but the Cousins, Cook, Jefferson, Thielen quartet gets me every time.
SEAHAWKS 20, WASHINGTON 17
Is it a trap game when everyone says it’s a trap game? Plus, WFT are a playoff contender themselves.
RAVENS 33, JAGUARS 22
Minshew Mania is back. They’ll be no match for Lamar but they can keep this one fun – and watchable.
RAMS 24, JETS 10
LA should go up early, the Jets will not be able to gain any ground. Rams run out the clock, boringly.
CARDINALS 30, EAGLES 21
Cards D should be well planned for Jalen Hurts, considering their QB1 is what Hurts hopes to become.
CHIEFS 38, SAINTS 23
I like KC to make a statement here. Yep, Brees is back but he was not the Drew Brees when he was healthy.
BROWNS 28, GIANTS 20
Cleveland are just a flat out good team. Forget the uniform and what’s happened in the past.
