Minnesota Vikings @ Atlanta Falcons. The Vikings are the feel-good story of the 2017 NFL Season. After going through multiple starting quarterbacks due to injury, they are sitting at a 9-2 record heading into Atlanta. This is a phenomenal Minnesota team and I expect them to pull out another win this week at Atlanta. Final score: Vikings 28, Falcons 3.
Houston Texans @ Tennessee Titans. With Watson under center, this would be a hard game for the Titans. That being said, Watson is out for the Texans, which makes this one easy. Titans win. Final score: Titans 21, Texans 17.
Kansas City Chiefs @ New York Jets. I don't believe in the Chiefs right now. This is a unit with lots of talent that has somehow turned into a one-dimensional, predictable offensive unit. I expect the Jets to win at home. Final score: Jets 24, Chiefs 22.
Denver Broncos @ Miami Dolphins. I have no idea who to pick in this matchup. Sloppy coaching, sloppy quarterback play, sloppy mistakes, sloppy teams. I'm going to roll the dice with Denver on the road. Final score: Broncos 14, Dolphins 7.
Indianapolis Colts @ Jacksonville Jaguars. This week, the Jaguars beat the Colts at home to march one step closer to a divisional title. Jaguars win. Final score: Jaguars 35, Colts 14.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ Green Bay Packers. If the Buccaneers were playing like they are capable of, this is a game they should win with a Rodgers-less Packers offense. That being said, they are not. Therefore, Packers win this one at home. Final score: Packers 24, Buccaneers 23.
Detroit Lions @ Justin Tucker's House. This week, the Lions travel to Baltimore to take on a team carried by the strong leg of Justin Tucker. Both of these teams are clinging to playoff hopes, but at home, Baltimore has the edge. Final score: Justin Tucker 38, Lions 35.
New England Patriots @ Buffalo Bills. I'm losing faith in Buffalo. I'll never lose faith in Bill Belichick and Tom Brady. Patriots win this one. Final score: Patriots 28, Bills 24.
San Francisco 49ers @ Chicago Bears. It's Jimmy Garoppolo time in San Francisco, and they head towards a winnable game on the road. I think that the 49ers pull off a victory this week as they try out their potential new franchise quarterback. Final score: 49ers 28, Bears 27.
Cleveland Browns @ LA Chargers. Josh Gordon returns this week for the Cleveland Browns. That will not be enough to help them win a game. Final score: Chargers 35, Browns 14.
New York Giants @ Oakland Raiders. By benching Eli Manning and starting Geno Smith, the Giants have shown their intent to lose out in an attempt to draft a franchise quarterback in the 2018 NFL Draft. Raiders win. Final score: Raiders 27, Giants 7.
Carolina Panthers @ New Orleans Saints. This should be one of the best games to watch this week. However, Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram should be enough to carry this Saints offense to victory at home against a solid Panthers team. Final score: Saints 35, Panthers 27.
LA Rams @ Arizona Cardinals. The Cardinals are a good football team with Carson Palmer and David Johnson. Without them, they lose to the Rams at home this week. Final score: Rams 37, Cardinals 21.
Philadelphia Eagles @ Seattle Seahawks. This week the Eagles travel to Seattle to take on Branden Jackson and the Seahawks. This is the best team the Eagles have faced this season, and Seattle is good enough to stop Philadelphia. I expect the Seahawks to win this one at home. Final score: Seahawks 28, Eagles 21.
Pittsburgh Steelers @ Cincinnati Bengals. Why is this a Monday night game? The Steelers nearly always dominate the Bengals, and the Bengals are horrid in prime time with Marvin Lewis. This looks like a potential blowout. Final score: Steelers 42, Bengals 17.--Mike B.
