Cardinals vs Jaguars – The Jaguars made a major mistake giving their head coaching job to Urban Meyer, the countdown clock to his quitting and going back to his old day job of being a College head coach has started.   Cardinals for the win.

Panthers vs Texans. Sam Darnold doesn’t look so bad with some actual support and playing for an organization that’s not a dumpster fire. 

Sunday

The Panthers defense has also played very well in weeks 1, and 2. Tyrod Taylor does what he normally does, earn a starting job and then get hurt 2–3 weeks into the season.  

The Texans are left with Davis Mills from Stanford to start.  They’ll get mauled by the Panthers.  The cool cats from Carolina go 3-0!!

The Big W’s (Washington Football Team) vs Buffalo – Heinicke is real.  The kid has some moxy, but it’s going to take more than that to beat Josh Allen and the Bills.  Bills Mafia goes 2-1.

Ravens vs Lions – I have Big Trust in Big Truss. Quoth me nevermore, Ravens in a laugher.

Bears vs Browns – Justin Fields will make the Bears very competitive.   But the Browns have too much talent and will hand Da Bears, Da “L”.

Colts vs Titans  – Carson Wentz is getting beat to shreds week to week.   He’s got two bad ankles, and the Colts have a long season ahead of them.   A  big blue W for King Henry and the Titans.

Chargers vs Chiefs – Pat Mahomes gets Chiefs back on track after losing to Lamar Jackson in a barn burner on Sunday night football. But Chargers play the Chiefs tough and give them a strong scare.

Saints vs Patriots -Depends on who shows up. Good Jameis or bad Jameis. If Good Jameis shows up the Saints win, if 30 plus picks Jameis shows up, could be a long day for the Saints.   I’ll take Bill Belichick and the Alabama kid.  Patriots for the W

Giants vs Falcons – It’s a chance for the Falcons to get off the schnide, and for the Giants. I don’t know both teams are no so great.  So whoever have the ball last.   Toss up. It’s a pickem.

Bengals vs Steelers – Big Ben is banged up, and so Is Joe Burrow.  Pittsburgh has a better roster, so they’ll have an edge.

Cardinals vs Jaguars – The Jaguars made a major mistake giving their head coaching job to Urban Meyer, the countdown clock to his quitting and going back to his old day job of being a College head coach has started.   Cardinals for the win.

Jets vs Broncos – It’s the Jets. Going with the Broncos.

Dolphins vs Raiders – Give me Chucky and the guys from Vegas.

Buccaneers vs Rams – I expect Brady and Company to have a slowdown. This is one of the games the Bucs can lose, but I don’t quite expect them too. Bucs for the win.

Seahawks vs Vikings – Russ will Cook, Kirk will cook as well but not win. 

Sunday night game

Packers vs 49ers – The 49ers don’t have a great secondary.  The Eagles last weekend exposed that. So will Aaron Rodgers. Going with the PACK!

Monday Night Football

Cowboys vs Eagles – Jerry has built a better roster.  But in a division game anything can happen. Take the Boys for the win.
