CIN @ BUF:
After the defense put on a solid showing against an undefeated Tom Brady last week, it’s hard not view them as a near lock against Thad Lewis.
DET @ CLE
This game isn’t quite as clear-cut as we might to think and a lot of this will hinge on whether or not Calvin Johnson (game-time decision) is good to go. But with Weeden back under center, we can expect a turnover or two.
OAK @ KC
Expect the Chiefs defense to show up in a big way at home on their way to 6-0.
CAR @ MIN
This team will rally around AP at home. Be sure to keep him in your prayers.
PIT @ NYJ
You have no idea how badly I want the Steelers to win this game after Geno humiliated the Falcons defense last week. But Pittsburgh’s offense is lethargic and the Jets front seven won’t do Roethlisberger any favors.
PHI @ TB
This match up isn’t Nick Foles vs. Mike Glennon as much as it is Chip Kelly vs. Greg Schiano for me. If the Eagles can’t put up points early, the Bucs could stick around in this one.
GB @ BAL
Aaron Rodgers vs. Joe Flacco. Point made.
STL @ HOU
Matt Schaub needs a softball game as much as anyone in professional sports has needed it in recent memory. This should be it. But don’t overlook this Rams defense, they’re better than their numbers show.
JAC @ DEN
Take the points on an absurd 28-point spread, but c’mon man.
TEN @ SEA
NO @ NE
Sean Payton, Drew Brees, Jimmy Graham, Marquis Colston, Darren Sproles … and so on. If Gronk doesn’t go, Brady just doesn’t have the weapons. -Sigh-
ARI @ SF
I think this game is going to be a lot closer than most people think. I was this close to picking Arizona. But home field wins out.
WSH @ DAL
I hope you’re not playing against Dez Bryant in fantasy football this week.
IND @ SD
Andrew Luck vs. Philip Rivers. This could very well wind up being the most entertaining game of the weekend, complete with at least three camera cuts to a pouting San Diego quarterback.
