NFL action continues and there are some good games on the menu. Here are the games and what to possibly expect. Will your favorite team be a step closer to the top or bottom?
Cleveland Browns vs Pittsburgh Steelers (Browns-2.5)- We have a rivalry game. The Browns and Steelers are a big rivalry and earlier in the season, the Steelers beat the Browns 26-22. The Browns will depend on rookie quarterback Dorian Thompson-Robinson as they will be without Deshaun Watson for the rest of the season. The Browns and Steelers are 6-3 this season, and the Steelers have a chance to pick up a win in Cleveland, but the Browns will look to recover from their loss in Pittsburgh. It will be interesting to see how things play out.
Prediction: Browns get the win.
Miami Dolphins vs Las Vegas Raiders (Dolphins -13.5)- The Miami Dolphins are doing well this season. They are first in the AFC East with a record of 6-3. The Raiders are an even 5-5 and second in the AFC West. The Dolphins are fresh off a bye week and before that they lost to the Kansas City Chiefs. The Raiders beat the Jets last Sunday to improve to .500. The Dolphins are rested and want to come back from their loss to the Chiefs.
Prediction: Dolphins get the win.
Detroit Lions vs Chicago Bears (Lions -8)- The Detroit Lions are first in the NFC North with a record of 7-2. The Bears are having a rough season with their record being 3-7. The Lions have won their last two games with their most recent win being an impressive 41-38 win over the Chargers. The Bears won their last game, as they beat the Carolina Panthers 16-13. Justin Fields is set to return in this game, which helps Chicago, but will it be enough?
Prediction: Detroit gets the win
Jacksonville Jaguars vs Tennessee Titans (Jaguars -6.5)- The Jacksonville Jaguars are first in the AFC South with a record of 6-3. The Jaguars lost to San Francisco 34-3 last Sunday. The Titans are on a two-game losing streak. It would be interesting to see the Titans snap their losing streak and give the Jaguars their second straight loss, but chances are, Jacksonville gets the win.
Prediction: Jacksonville takes it
Green Bay Packers vs Los Angeles Chargers- (Packers +3)- Both of these teams are under .500. The Chargers are 4-5 and the Packers are 3-6. The Chargers are on a two-game losing streak. The Packers lost a close one to the Steelers last Sunday. This game could honestly go either way and the Chargers could get a win on the road. But the Packers may take this one and win in front of their home crowd.
Prediction: Green Bay takes it.
Houston Texans vs Arizona Cardinals (Texans -6)- The Texans are 5-4 and picked up two close, impressive wins recently. They beat the Bengals 30-27 last Sunday and before that they beat the Buccaneers 39-37. The Cardinals picked up a close win over the Falcons. This was a good win as the week before, they got shut out by the Browns. The Cardinals are now 2-8 and chances are, the Texans will beat them.
Prediction: Houston gets the win.
Carolina Panthers vs Dallas Cowboys (Cowboys -10.5)- The Dallas Cowboys are 6-3 and picked up a big win over the Giants in their last game. The Carolina Panthers are 1-8 and struggling. Anything can happen in sports, but it is safe to say the Cowboys are in good shape.
Prediction: Dallas wins
Washington Commanders vs New York Giants (Commanders -9)- The Washington Commanders are 4-6 this season. The Giants are 2-8 this season. The Panthers are on a two-game losing streak. The Commanders could take this game and get closer to being .500
Prediction: Washington wins
San Francisco 49ers vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers (49ers -13)- The 49ers are doing well and are on top of the NFC West. They beat the Jaguars in their last outing after a loss in a close game with the Texans. The 49ers are 6-3 and their opponent is 4-5 (one game under .500). Chances are the 49ers will take this game.
Prediction: San Francisco
Buffalo Bills vs New York Jets (Bills -7)- The Bills are .500 with a record of 5-5. The Jets are close to .500 with a record of 4-5. The Jets have been playing without Aaron Rodgers since his early season injury and recently have been on a two-game losing streak. The Bills are on a two-game losing streak themselves. But they can snap their streak with a nice win over the Jets.
Prediction: Bills win
Los Angeles Rams vs Seattle Seahawks (Seahawks +1.5)- The Los Angeles Rams are 3-6 this season. The Seahawks are 6-3. They have the same record as the 49ers while their division rival Rams are second to last. The Rams are on a three-game losing streak and the Seahawks could hand them another loss.
Prediction: Seahawks win
Denver Broncos vs Minnesota Vikings (Broncos -3)- The Broncos are trying to get on track. They are on a three-game winning streak and have a record of 4-5 (one game under .500). The Vikings are playing really well and find themselves on a five-game winning streak. This could be a good game and winning streaks are on the line. I would not be surprised if Minnesota wins but will go with the Broncos for fun.
Prediction: Denver takes it
Kansas City Chiefs vs Philadelphia Eagles (Eagles +2.5)- The Monday Night Football game is an exciting matchup. The Kansas City Chiefs are 7-2 and on top of the AFC West. The Eagles are 8-1 and on top of the NFC East. This could be a great game, can go to either team.
Prediction: Eagles win a close one
