Thursday, October 21

Denver Broncos at Cleveland Browns (-1 1/2, 40 1/2) 8:20 pm - Cleveland, one of the better teams in the NFL, has had a rough time of it lately, especially last Sunday when they got tossed around by the Arizona Cardinals, 37-14, the only remaining undefeated team in the league. The week prior, they played in Los Angeles, losing to the Rams, 47-42. They enter week seven at 3-3, the other loss at Kansas City in week one.

And now, QB Baker Mayfield and RBs Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt are both out. Odell Beckham Jr. is listed as questionable, putting them in another tough spot as the Broncos come to town, though they may be without the services of Teddy Bridgewater, injured late in Denver's 34-24 loss to the Raiders. Drew Lock would replace Bridgewater; Case Keenum fills in for Mayfield. It's kind of an even exchange.

Denver's lost three straight. Like the Browns they are 3-3. Lock was 4-8 as a starter last season for Denver. Keenum last started a game in 2019 for Washington. He's an experienced pro and should give the Browns a lift.

Coin Flip: Cleveland

Prediction: Browns 27 Broncos 19


Sunday, October 24

Cincinnati Bengals at Baltimore Ravens (-6, 47) 1:00 pm - The Bengals are doing great at 4-2, coming off an impressive, 34-11, victory at Detroit. However, playing at Detroit is far removed from playing at Baltimore, where the Ravens rule the roost, blasting the Chargers, 34-6, to take over sole possession of first place in the AFC North with a 5-1 mark.

The Bengals are improved over last season, but history is not on their side. Baltimore belted them twice in 2020, winning, 27-3, in Baltimore, and 38-3 in Cincinnati. This one is likely to be closer, but Baltimore looks to be hitting mid-season stride. The Ravens can be streaky. In 2019, they closed out the season on a 12-game win streak, and won five straight down the stretch last year. Currently, they've won five in a row after losing 33-27 in OT at Las Vegas in week one.

Coin Flip: Baltimore

Prediction: Ravens 31 Bengals 17


Washington Football Team at Green Bay Packers (-9 1/2, 49) 1:00 pm - The Packers were methodical on offense and made timely plays on defense in last week's 24-14 win at Chicago and are now riding a five-game winning streak.

Washington heads to Lambeau Field with a 4-2 record, their wins coming against the Giants and Falcons, two of the worst teams in the league. Kansas City dumped them 31-13 last week. Aaron Rodgers should have a field day. The addition of bruising AJ Dillon gives the Packers added options.

Coin Flip: Green Bay

Prediction: Packers 38 Football Team 10


Atlanta Falcons (-2 1/2, 47 1/2) at Miami Dolphins 1:00 pm - Miami comes back from London after losing to Jacksonville, 23-20, the Jaguars first win in 20 games, but at least they have Tua Tagovailoa back from injury and its a little surprising they're not the favorite here.

Atlanta is 2-3, and coming off a bye week, but those two wins came against the Jets and Giants, which isn't saying much. Miami went 10-6 last season and just missed making the playoffs. The talent is there. They may start putting it together in this contest.

Coin Flip: Atlanta

Prediction: Dolphins 24 Falcons 18



NY Jets at New England Patriots (-7, 42 1/2) 1:00 pm - The Patriots already beat the Jets once this season, 25-6, in week two at the Meadowlands, so they should really throttle them up in Foxboro. After playing Dallas to a standstill, losing in overtime last week, the Patriots appear to be headed for better things. Mac Jones matures with every game.

The same cannot be said of the Jets. They've had one shining moment, beating the Titans who were without both starting wide receivers and even managed to lose to Atlanta in England two weeks ago, 27-20. The bye week may help, but New England is a better team any way you slice it.

Coin Flip: NY Jets

Prediction: Patriots 26 Jets 14


Carolina Panthers (-3, 43) at NY Giants 1:00 pm - At 1-5 and with RB Saquon Barley and wideouts Kenny Golladay and Darius Slayton all questionable, the Giants seem to be going nowhere fast. Their last two games were sad: a 44-20 loss at Dallas, and last week's pulverizing by the Rams, 38-11.

While they may have some hopes against the visiting Panthers (losers in OT to the Vikings, 34-28) a win is unlikely. Even though the Panthers have lost three straight, they lost to Dallas by eight points and by a field goal to the Eagles. They can get healthy in a hurry against the likes of the Giants.

Coin Flip: NY Giants

Prediction: Panthers 28 Giants 17


Kansas City Chiefs (-5 1/2, 57) at Tennessee Titans 1:00 pm - Pretty much the game of the week pits division-leading Tennessee, fresh off a Monday night win over Buffalo, against the struggling Chiefs, whose defense looked better in the 31-13 win at Washington. The offense was getting on track as the game progressed; the Chiefs scored three touchdowns in the second half after trailing 13-10 at half time.

Tennessee's run defense was surprisingly good against Buffalo, allowing just 82 yards on 23 carries, but the secondary continue to be an issue. Josh Allen threw for 353 yards and 3 TDs in Tennessee's 34-31 home win. With Julio Jones and AJ Brown healthy again, the Titans can trade scores with the Chiefs and either cover or win outright.

Coin Flip: Kansas City

Prediction: Titans 38 Chiefs 36
