Chargers-Tampa Bay…What was once looked on as an easy game has become alot tougher. The Bucs are winning..Jameis Winston has over 2600 yards passing and running…he’s not throwing as many interceptions…Defense gets sacks and turnovers…But then again he hasn’t seen Joey Bosa nor John Pagano’s blitz packages yet.
Chiefs-Atlanta…Matt Ryan meet Justin Houston-coming off 3-sack-10 tackle performance..Falcons too much firepower…Alex Smith taking too many hits…KC run game not what it was before.
Rams-New England..Jared Goff coming off 3-TD game-but that is Bill Belicheck’s defense..and Tom Brady plays lights out at Gillette Stadium.
Eagles-Cincinnati…Bottom falling out on Philadelphia..no run game to support Carson Wentz…Bengals major disappointment-now don’t have AJ Green-WR either
Miami-Baltimore…Dolphins playing really well for Adam Gase..face very rugged Ravens defense…but Joe Flacoo faces challenge with Miami front..will be rock’em-sock’em
Denver-Jacksonville…Broncos coming off enormous loss….Are they exhausted or can they go chase down Blake Bortels….Are Broncos about to fall out of wildcard race….Gus Bradley coaching final weeks with Jaguars?
Detroit-New Orleans…Drew Brees driving Saints back into playoff race…Lions playing balanced football now that Matthew Stafford doesn’t have to wing it all the time…Can Lions slow Brees down?
49ers-Chicago…Ugly game of week..Colin Kaeperneck should get San Francisco win…Chip Kelly-John Fox combined record this year (3-19)
Houston-Green Bay…Packers badly banged up but Aaron Rodgers and Jordy Nelson continue to light it up with passing game..Texans way too conservative..Brock Oswelile not handling blitz well…Houston in danger of blowing first place lead in the division.
Buffalo-Oakland..Pretty good matchup….Rex Ryan defense to go after Derek Carr and Raiders passing game…but then again LeSean McCoy-Tyrod Taylor must contain Khalil Mack.
Washington-Arizona…Kirk Cousins lighting up defenses with passing game…Having huge contract season…Arizona just not same team as a year ago…offense not as scary…lots of issues on defense…
Giants-Steelers…Eli Manning and passing game-vs-Ben Roethlisberger and big play offense…Key match up-can Le’Veon Bell run the ball against Giants defensive front?
Carolina-Seattle….Cam Newton taking lots of shots…Panthers offensive front in state of chaos with injuries…no Luke Kuechly….Russell Wilson and Legion of Boom to have big day.
Jets-Colts…Andrew Luck posibly back from concussion…Colts trying to push back into playoff race…Jets having terrible season every way possible.
