Cardinals vs. Seahawks
The Cardinals have continued to be inconsistent all season long. They have had terrific success on the offensive side of the ball with Kyler Murray and DeAndre Hopkins forming a nice duo so far this season. They have also had good success in the rushing attack with the combination of Kenyan Drake and Chase Edmonds. However, their defense will need to be ready to face off against the leading MVP candidate in Russell Wilson and the Seahawks offense. Last time these two teams met it went down to the wire and this game will be no different. It is just too hard to bet against Wilson regardless of the last few games. Take the Seahawks in this game.
Final Pick: Seahawks
Bengals vs. Football Team
The Bengals have had a few great offensive games this season due to their rookie quarterback Joe Burrow being able to make plays despite their bad offensive line. He has gotten multiple receivers involved in the offense as well as getting Joe Mixon and Giovani Bernard involved in the rushing game. Their defense hasn’t been the best so far this season, but they get a far easier matchup this week against a Washington team that will be struggling to pick a starting quarterback this week. The Football Team has had a great defense all season long but will struggle if they are left out on the field too long. The Bengals offense is far better than the Washington offense which is why they should win this ball game.
Final Pick: Bengals
Steelers vs. Jaguars
The Steelers have been seemingly unbeatable so far this season despite having a few poor games. Their wide receiver trio of Juju Smit-Schuster, Chase Claypool and Diontae Johnson have been able to have a ton of success ever since Ben Roethlisberger had come back from his injury that sidelined him all of last season. It also helps that their defense is among the best in the league and should feast against a Jaguars offense that may have a rookie quarterback starting in this game. This game doesn’t need much explaining, Pittsburgh should take this one handily.
Final Pick: Jaguars
Lions vs. Panthers
The Lions have been up and down all year long but still have a ton of potential moving forward this season. They might be without their franchise quarterback Matthew Stafford this week as he got an injury a few weeks ago that may sideline him for this game. If Stafford isn’t able to suit up, look for the young and hungry Carolina defense to attack their backup early and often to force him into mistakes. They are also bound to have huge success on offense against a Lions defense that recently allowed Phillip Rivers and the Colts to score 41 points. Look for Teddy Bridgewater to have a huge day en route to a Panthers win.
Final Pick: Panthers
Dolphins vs. Broncos
The Dolphins have proven that it doesn’t matter who their starting quarterback is, they will get the job done no matter what. Rookie quarterback Tua Tagovailoa has been playing better and better as he continues to start for this young offense. He will get another chance to prove his worth again this week against a Denver defense that has been decimated by injuries all season long. However, the key point to this game will take place on the other side of the ball. As the Dolphins defense has played like a top five unit in the NFL throughout their past five games while the Broncos offense has struggled mightily in the redzone, constantly settling for field goals instead of touchdowns. Miami is just rolling at the moment and it is hard to pick against them.
Final Pick: Dolphins
Chiefs vs. Raiders
This has the potential to be the game of the week as the Chiefs get a second chance at beating the Las Vegas Raiders. The Raiders got the best of Mahomes in the first matchup, handing Kansas City their only loss of the season as well as getting the only interception against Patrick Mahomes. But the Chiefs have been rolling as of late as Mahomes is seemingly unstoppable. It also helps that they have a formidable running back duo of Clyde Edwards-Helaire and Le’Veon Bell now to go along with their talented defense. Meanwhile, the Raiders have been up and down all season long but still have postseason hopes heading into this game. Look for this game to come down to the wire again, but don’t bet against Mahomes here as he will look for revenge in this matchup.
Final Pick: Chiefs
Packers vs. Colts
The Packers have been going through some struggles as of late, but they still remain a powerhouse in the NFC. Aaron Rodgers has continued to thrive despite not having many big-name receivers outside of Davante Adams. Although, he has gotten a lot of pressure taken off of his shoulders due to their success in the run game as well as their defense making big play after big play. They now face off against the number one ranked defense in the NFL in the Colts, lead by young linebacker Darius Leonard who has played like a superstar so far in his young career. As for the other side of the ball, Philip Rivers will have his work cut out for him as he may be without a number of key offensive weapons heading into this matchup. Ultimately, this game is going to come down to the battle between Rodgers and Rivers in which Rodgers should win. Take the Packers here despite the incredible Indianapolis defense.
Final Pick: Packers
Falcons vs. Saints
Both of these teams are heading into this game with renewed confidence. The Falcons began the season choking multiple big time leads in the final minutes of the first few games but have since battled back after their head coach was fired. Meanwhile, the Saints were killed with injuries on the offensive side of the ball early on in the season but now that they are healthy, they have begun to look like Super Bowl contenders yet again. There shouldn’t be much to say about this game as the Saints should dominate this division matchup.
Final Pick: Saints
Eagles vs. Browns
Philadelphia is somehow still in the postseason race despite having a losing record on the season. Carson Wentz hasn’t been protected very well at all this year and it has caused him to make far too many mistakes. It also doesn’t help that they have been without their star running back Miles Sanders for multiple games. They now go against an inconsistent Browns team that should be getting Nick Chubb back from injury. The duo of Chubb and Kareem Hunt should wreak havoc against this Eagles defensive line and cause the passing lanes to open up as the game progresses. Take the Browns in this game due to their offensive firepower and the Eagles inability to put up consistent points.
Final Pick: Eagles
Titans vs. Ravens
This will be a battle between two AFC powerhouses with the Titans traveling to Baltimore to face the Ravens. The Titans have flourished so far this season due to the combination of Ryan Tannehill and Derrick Henry. Henry also is among the league leaders in total rushing yards heading into this game and is also one of the hardest players to tackle in the NFL. On the other hand, the Ravens have one of the best defenses in the league being Calais Campbell and Marcus Peters. They also have reigning MVP Lamar Jackson, who is bound to cause a ton of issues for a Titans defense that has struggled quite a bit so far this year. This game is a tossup, but I would take the Ravens in this matchup due to Jackson and the Ravens high flying offense.
Final Pick: Ravens
Jets vs. Chargers
Another game that will not need much explaining, as the Jets have struggled all season long and ultimately just don’t have enough talent on either side of the football. Meanwhile, the Chargers are led by their future star rookie quarterback Justin Herbert, who has been able to lead the Chargers to big offensive days. Los Angeles also has the far better defense than the Jets, who have struggled to stop anybody all season long. Take the Chargers with full confidence in this one.
Final Pick: Chargers
Cowboys vs. Vikings
Dallas put up a good fight against the undefeated Pittsburgh Steelers are few weeks ago but still remain one of the worst teams in the league. They have had quarterback issues ever since Dak Prescott went down with that gruesome ankle injury and their entire offense has struggle because of it. It also doesn’t help that their defense is arguably the worst unit in the league and will have a very hard time trying to contain superstar running back Dalvin Cook this week. If Dallas was fully healthy heading into this matchup, I would say this game will come down to the wire, but the Cowboys are bound to have no true answer for Cook as he will lead the Vikings offense to another huge win.
Final Pick: Vikings
Rams vs. Buccaneers
The Rams have been a very difficult team to predict all season long as they have just not showed their potential week to week. At some points, they look like the Super Bowl team from a few years ago and other times they don’t even look like playoff contenders. Their defense has been a top unit in the NFL this season, but their offense has made far too many mistakes which has cost them a few games already. They will now have to play better than ever now going against Tom Brady and this loaded Tampa Bay offense that features Antonio Brown now. Not to mention the fact that they have a top five defense in the NFL. It should just be too much for the Rams to handle on each side of the ball which should set up the Buccaneers for a big win here.
Final Pick: Buccaneers
Patriots vs. Texans
The Patriots have been incredibly disappointing after starting the season off with tons of potential. Cam Newton has played horrific ever since he came back from having COVID and he will have to play better if they want any chance of not only making the playoffs but winning this game. Their defense hasn’t even been up to par this year either as too many longtime players opted out of the season before the year started. They now face off against a struggling Texans team that might be without their starting running back David Johnson for this game. They also have one of the worst defenses in the league as they haven’t been able to slow down any opponent. This game will be a high scoring game and should be close all the way through, but I just don’t trust Newton and the Patriots this season. I would pick the Texans in this game due to Deshaun Watson and his excellence so far this year.
Final Pick: Patriots
