CANTON, Ohio- I’m taking a break from the camera for one week because I’m a bit under the weather. Along with that, I won’t be doing the review aspect of my picks from week three. I can tell you in short, that I had a horrible week last week when it came to my predictions. We’ll leave it at that. Time to make my week four predictions.
THURSDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL-
Bears at Packers- Two storied franchises and a series tied at 94 wins a piece and six ties. Green Bay will host Chicago. Both teams are coming off wins. The Bears beat Pittsburgh in OT and the Packers did the same against the Bengals. I think this game will be closer than even I expect it to be, but in the end, I expect Green Bay to come out on top. Packers over Da Bears!
Saints at Dolphins- I’ll take Miami.
Titans at Texans- I wonder if Houston read my prediction for the AFC South. I told Houston not to waste their time with Tom savage at QB. It took less than one game and out goes Savage, in comes Watson. I’ll take the Texans to get a big win over a division rival in Tennessee.
Jaguars at Jets- The London…….I mean Jacksonville Jaguars head to MetLife to battle the Jets. I think the Jaguars have more fans over in London, than they do back here in the states. I’ll take Jacksonville over New York.
Panthers at Patriots- Give me New England.
Lions at Vikings- This is tough one for me. I think overall, Detroit is the better team, but Minnesota has Dalvin Cook at RB and he is doing great so far. I’ll go with Minnesota since they’re at home.
Bills at Falcons- Here is probably my upset off the week. Atlanta is a better team overall, but on this Sunday, Buffalo goes down to Atlanta and shocks the Falcons.
Steelers at Ravens- Baltimore got manhandled by the London Jaguars last week and the Steelers lost in OT in Chicago last week. The winner takes over sole possession of first place in the AFC North, while the loser drops to second place but still has nothing to worry considering both Cincinnati and Cleveland are 0-3 and play each other this week as well. I’ll give the Ravens the edge at home. I think Baltimore bounces back.
Rams at Cowboys- Dallas keeps rolling with a big win over the Rams.
Eagles at Chargers- I’m a bit shocked at how poorly the Chargers have started out. With that said, I think the Los Angeles Chargers get their first win in LA with a win over Philly.
Giants at Buccaneers- New York is in trouble already and its only week 4. But, in the NFC East, you can’t afford to fall behind like they have. Tampa Bay gets the win.
49ers at Cardinals- Arizona gets back to .500 with a win.
Raiders at Broncos- Oakland was humbled last week in Washington. I think they bounce back and get a huge win on the road in Denver.
Colts at Seahawks- Seattle in a blowout at home.
MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL-
Redskins at Chiefs- It’s very difficult to pick against Kansas City at Arrowhead. I think the Chiefs stay hot and win.
Bengals at Browns- It’s the battle for Ohio and a battle to stay out of last place. Cincinnati couldn’t hang on last week in Green Bay and the Browns looked terrible on the road in Indy last week. The Bengals will get back a stud/ dirty player in Burfict at linebacker, while the Browns might have to go another week without Jamie Collins at LB and Myles Garrett. Until Cleveland proves me wrong, I’ll continue to pick against them. Cincinnati gets their first win of the season on the road.
