Week 4 is here and there are only 2 undefeated teams left standing. The NFL has been crazy this year and through 3 weeks we are 28-19 and hope to put up a better performance than our 9 of 16 right in week 3.
Miami Dolphins at Cincinnati Bengals
The Miami Dolphins continue their remarkable season 4-0 in the toughest patch of their whole season knocking off 3 playoff teams from 2021. The Dolphins come to Cincinnati after just knocking off Josh Allen for the first time in Allen’s career. The Dolphins offense is explosive and we already know Tyreek Hill is on a mission to perform after the Chiefs lost to the Bengals in the AFC Championship game. This is going to be one of the best Thursday night games of the year and we’re excited to watch the Dolphins start 4-0.
Winner: Miami Dolphins
Minnesota Vikings at New Orleans Saints (Played in London)
In the annual trip to London, the Minnesota Vikings & New Orleans are the two teams that get to play across the pond. Both teams are coming off disappointing losses to division rivals with each entering this matchup 1-2. Both of them could use a win here to get back on track and stay in a stronger spot for the playoffs. After an incredible week 1 performance, Justin Jefferson has been silent the last 2 weeks, but with a matchup on neutral territory, we expect a high bounce back game for him. There have been rumors about benching Jameis after he continues to throw interceptions. The Saints backup option is Andy Dalton who wouldn’t fare much better against Minnesota in this scenario.
Winner: Minnesota Vikings
Cleveland Browns at Atlanta Falcons
The Browns are fighting to keep their team in playoff contention with Deshaun Watson suspended for a good chunk of the year. The Browns haven’t looked great despite their 2-1 record. The Browns have the chance to go to 3-1 and stay atop the AFC North with a bottom dweller in the Atlanta Falcons. The Falcons just knocked off the Seahawks, but that wasn’t something to pride themselves on. The Browns have played pretty ugly this year and play yet another one in another game that shouldn’t be as close as it ends up much closer than it should be.
Winner: Cleveland Browns
Buffalo Bills at Baltimore Ravens
Josh Allen lost to the Miami Dolphins for the first time in his career. At least for Josh Allen’s sake, the team he’s playing also lost to Miami the week prior in the same fashion with Miami coming from behind to knock the favorite off. After this game, the Ravens will have faced the entirety of the AFC East in their first 4 games of the season. Through those 4 games, Ravens will end up 2-2 having lost to the 2 teams from that division that will make the playoffs. The Ravens have a good chance to make it in their own right, but the Bills are Super Bowl favorites and need this win to get back on track. It should be a high scoring affair as both secondaries are seriously hurting right now.
Winner: Buffalo Bills
Washington Commanders at Dallas Cowboys
Cooper Rush remained undefeated as he’s won in both starts this year since Dak Prescott went down. Cooper Rush is going to continue to do so in week 4 against another division rival in Washington. Thankfully for Cooper Rush and the Cowboys, it wasn’t Philadelphia they had to play yet and get a couple weeks before that matchup. Washington is just not a good team and the Cowboys keep Dak Prescott’s playoff aspirations alive.
Winner: Dallas Cowboys
Seattle Seahawks at Detroit Lions
The Lions are currently the 2nd highest scoring team in the NFL. This is quite a turnaround from last season where they were a bottom 10 unit. The offense has looked impressive this season but with injuries to D’Andre Swift who is expected to miss some time and Amon-Ra St.Brown, we don’t know how long they’ll be able to keep up their efforts. Thankfully for them, they let Swift get some rest and still come out with a victory as they face one of the worst overall teams in the Seattle Seahawks.
Winner: Detroit Lions
Los Angeles Chargers at Houston Texans
Both the Chargers and Texans are coming off of tough losses. The Chargers quite frankly got demolished by Jacksonville on their own turf and the Texans choked against the Bears. It can’t get much worse for either team and this game should be progress for both teams. The Chargers injury problems haven’t gotten any better as they are now without RaShawn Slater for the season and Joey Bosa will be missing time as well. Herbert’s playing through an injury and should have star received Keenan Allen back from his injury. Despite all the medical uncertainties and issues for LA, they prevail against the weaker opponent in what’s a much needed bounce back game.
Winner: Los Angeles Chargers
Tennessee Titans at Indianapolis Colts
Both AFC South teams came out of week 3 with a much needed victory to break their winless starts. The Titans survived the Raiders and the Colts barely made it by the Chiefs on their home turf. Indianapolis stays at home as Tennessee comes to town as they hope to reclaim their title as the best team in the division. The offenses on these teams just don’t look great and we expect this to be another low scoring defensive brawl. The Colts have the better defense and come out on top in this one.
Winner: Indianapolis Colts
Chicago Bears at New York Giants
Somehow both of these teams enter this game 2-1. Whether or not they deserve to be 2-1 or are as good as their record says is a whole different story. Yet somehow one of these 2 teams has to come out of here with a win and we’re giving the edge to the home team as the Giants are 3-1 and in contention for NFC East Title will remain 1 game behind Philly after this week concludes.
Winner: New York Giants
Jacksonville Jaguars at Philadelphia Eagles
In what is surprisingly going to be one of the best games of the week, the Jacksonville Jaguars and Philadelphia Eagles are 2 of the better teams in the league. Jacksonville has won by a combined 52 points in their last 2 weeks including against Indianapolis and playing the Chargers on the road. Philadelphia has put up 24 or more points in each game they’ve played this year, so we’re in store for a shootout. Jacksonville has the better defense, but the Eagles offense with Jalen Hurts playing at a MVP level is unmatched. The Eagles narrowly edge out Jacksonville to stay undefeated.
Winner: Philadelphia Eagles
New York Jets at Pittsburgh Steelers
Reports are that Zach Wilson might be ready to go for this game. If not, Joe Flacco suits up against a long time foe. Regardless of who is playing, the Jets just aren’t very good. Their lone win was a miraculous comeback against a tough Cleveland team. Mitch lives another day as the starter as the banged up Steelers defense carries him to victory.
Winner: Pittsburgh Steelers
Arizona Cardinals at Carolina Panthers
The Arizona Cardinals at Carolina Panthers matchup is two teams who have been overwhelmingly disappointing this year, especially on the offensive side of the ball. Baker has somehow made the Panthers offense worse despite having both DJ Moore and CMC healthy. Kyler is pretty much doing everything on his own with little help in Arizona. One of these teams has to look good eventually, right? This matchup isn’t going to be pretty, but Kyler goes video game mode again to pull out an ugly victory.
Winner: Arizona Cardinals
New England Patriots at Green Bay Packers
The Green Bay Packers just went and knocked down the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Tampa Bay who have Tom Brady as their quarterback. The New England Patriots travel to Green Bay after losing to Baltimore and will most likely be without 2nd year quarterback Mac Jones. With or without Jones, the odds are not in the Pats favor and Green Bay gets a big victory at home.
Winner: Green Bay Packers
Denver Broncos at Las Vegas Raiders
In a surprise to all of us, the Broncos and Raiders both are having significant struggles on offense. The Broncos can’t move the ball down the field and the Raiders have struggled in capitalizing on opportunities, especially with their late game collapses they had against Arizona and the Titans. For Davante Adams wanting to be paired with Derek Carr so badly, Carr hasn’t been giving Adams the targets someone of his caliber deserves and it’s what’s been holding them back. In a division matchup with a lot on the line for the confidence of the season, Derek Carr is going to help Davante Adams cook for a monster performance on their way to victory.
Winner: Las Vegas Raiders
Kansas City Chiefs at Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The Bucs continue their home stand with another team seeking revenge on the former Super Bowl champs. This time in Kansas City who they defeated on their way to winning. This Bucs team doesn’t look the same as practically half the receiving corps is injured and other player from that team moved on from the Bucs. The Chiefs have remained mostly intact outside of Pro Bowl receiver who was traded to Miami for a plethora of draft picks. The Chiefs don’t seem to miss Tyreek that much as Mahomes is spreading the ball more and still targeting old reliable Travis Kelce. The Chiefs are the better team this go around and win on the road.
Winner: Kansas City Chiefs
Los Angeles Rams at San Francisco 49ers
NFL fans are excited as we’re back to a MNF matchup that we can actually look forward to with 2 playoff teams. The defending Super Bowl Champions and a division rival that can’t seem to get past them when it matters most. Both teams are not playing nearly as well as they did last year on offenses, but both of their defenses are still elite. This is going to come down to which defense can perform better, especially with how scrappy both offenses have been playing. San Fran holds on at home in a tight matchup.
