Washington @ Philadelphia

Washington is 5-1 in their last 6 games against Philadelphia but Philadelphia won the first meeting this year in week 1, 30-17. In that game, Kirk Cousins turned it over 3 times while Carson Wentz threw for 307 yards and a touchdown. Wentz is tied for second in the league with 13 touchdown passes. Washington has injuries in their defensive backfield with Josh Norman out and Bashaud Breeland questionable. Philadelphia 28-24

Kansas City @ Oakland

Kansas City has dominated this series, winning five straight and 7 out of the last 8 meetings with Oakland. The Kansas City defense held Oakland to just 23 points combined in the two games last year. The Oakland offense is really struggling so far this season. Andy Reid coached teams are usually good following a loss, with Kansas City going 4-0 after a loss last season. Kansas City 24-20

Tampa Bay @ Buffalo

Jameis Winston is questionable to play after suffering a shoulder injury last week. Buffalo is allowing a league-low 14.8 points per game. Tampa Bay is 0-2 on the road this year while Buffalo is 2-0 at home. Buffalo is well rested after last weeks bye. Buffalo 20-17

Tennessee @ Cleveland

Marcus Mariota returned last week and Tennessee had their best offensive game of the season. Cleveland is 0-6, are ranked 31st in points scored and Kevin Hogan threw 3 interceptions while being sacked 4 times last week. They announced that they’ll be going back to DeShone Kizer as their starting quarterback this week. Tennessee beat Cleveland 28-26 last year. Tennessee 27-16

New Orleans @ Green Bay

A couple of weeks ago this was a game featuring two of the better quarterbacks in the league but Aaron Rodgers suffered a possible season-ending injury last week so it’ll be Brett Hundley against Drew Brees. Hundley struggled in relief of Rodgers last week, as he threw 3 interceptions against a good Minnesota defense. This week he’ll face a New Orleans pass defense ranked 28th in the league. Green Bay continues to have injury concerns along their offensive line. Green Bay 23-20

Baltimore @ Minnesota

Baltimore has been inconsistent so far this season and is coming off a disappointing home loss to Chicago in overtime. Opposing running backs are having their way with their defense as they’ve allowed 166 yards to Jacksonville, 173 to Pittsburgh and 231 to Chicago. Baltimore will have a tough time moving the ball against a Minnesota defense that has held opponents to 300 yards or less in their last three games. Minnesota 19-16

Arizona @ LAR

These teams have split the season series the last two seasons with each team winning on the road. Los Angeles is a different team under Sean McVay at 4-2. Adrian Peterson had a big day last week and this week he faces a Los Angeles run defense that has allowed 150 or more yards on the ground twice this year and over 200 yards once. LAR 27-24

Carolina @ Chicago

Chicago has played well at home this year with a win over Pittsburgh and two close losses to Minnesota and Atlanta. Jordan Howard is ranked 5th in rushing this year. Carolina is 3-0 on the road including wins over Detroit and New England. Rookie Mitch Trubisky will be under pressure this week as Carolina has the 2nd most sacks in the league with 20. Carolina 23-20

Jacksonville @ Indianapolis

These teams split the season series the past two seasons with each team winning at home. That was with Andrew Luck, and this is a much better Jacksonville team, despite their loss last week. Leonard Fournette left last weeks game with an injury but he should play this week and they need him. Jacksonville is ranked 1st in team rushing with Fournette ranked 2nd behind Kareem Hunt. Jacksonville 30-23

NYJ @ Miami

This is a rematch of their week 3 matchup in which New York won 20-6. They held Miami to just 225 total yards and only 30 rushing. Miami scored 20 or more points for the first time this season last week. Maybe it was the travel and time away from home (first three games were on the road) or needing time for their new quarterback to adjust, but Miami hasn’t looked good on offense early this season. They finally got their running game going last week. New York is coming off a hard-fought loss last week at home to New England. Miami 21-19

Dallas @ San Francisco

Dallas has struggled against teams with winning records this season, going 0-3 against Denver, Green Bay and the LAR. Fortunately this week they face a San Francisco team that is 0-6. Ezekiel Elliott plays this week which is a boost for the Dallas offense. Dallas beat San Francisco 24-17 last year. Dallas 27-17

Denver @ LAC

Denver is coming off one of the biggest upset losses of the weekend last week as an undermanned NYG offense beat them 23-10. The Denver defense hasn’t allowed an opposing offense to gain 300 yards in any game so far. San Diego has won back to back games. They’ve beaten Denver just once in their last five meetings. Bounce back game for Denver. Denver 27-24

Seattle @ NYG

Seattle had a bye last week and should be rested but they have to travel cross-country for this meeting against a NYG team that just beat Denver on the road. New York got back to a good ground game and solid defense last week. Orleans Darkwa was the first running back to rush for more than 100 yards against Denver. New York has been competitive the last four weeks and I expect that to be the case again this week. NYG 20-17

Cincinnati @ Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh has won the last four meetings with Cincinnati. Both teams have top five defenses. Pittsburgh had their running game going last week in Kansas City as they rushed for 194 yards. Take the better offense at home. Pittsburgh 24-20

Atlanta @ New England

It’s a rematch of last years title game. Neither team has looked impressive so far despite their winning records. Atlanta has lost their last two games at home and have been held to under 20 points in both games. New England is ranked last against the pass and have allowed 300-yard passing games in 5 out of their first 6 games. Julio Jones doesn’t have a touchdown yet this season so this could be a good week for that. New England 30-28

Record: Last week 5-8, Season 50-39
