Fearless NFL predictions for week four

Published Add your comment

Last week 10-5 (yes, I forgot to pick the New Orleans/Minnesota game)

Bye week: Cardinals, Bengals, Browns, Broncos, Seahawks, Rams

Giants (1-2) at Redskins (1-2) Last week, I successfully picked the Giants to win their first game of the season. They don’t get my vote, however, against Kirk Cousins and the Redskins. Eli Manning is just too erratic as he struggles to settle into his new offensive system. I’ll take Washington at home in a division game. Pick: Redskins

Packers (1-2) at Bears (2-1) The Bears secondary is ravished by injuries and are coming off a short week. Aaron Rodgers didn’t fair too well against a depleted Lions defense last week, passing for only 162 yards. Look for Rodgers to bounce back and exploit their weaknesses. Oh, and the Packers haven’t lost in Chicago the last three seasons. Pick: Packers

Bills (2-1) at Texans (2-1) Who would’ve thought these two teams would be leading their respective divisions after three weeks? And these divisions include the Patriots and Colts. This one could go either way, but I like J.J. Watt playing at home. Pick: Texans

Titans (1-2) at Colts (1-2) It took a few weeks, but Andrew Luck is just beginning to hit his stride. Pick: Colts

Panthers (2-1) at Ravens (2-1) The Steelers had two 100-yard rushers last week as they ran all over the Panthers. Don’t look for the Ray Rice-less Ravens to have the same kind of impact. Pick: Panthers

Lions (2-1) at Jets (1-2) The Jets have a strong front seven, but look for Matthew Stafford and Calvin Johnson to take advantage of their inexperienced secondary. Pick: Lions

Buccaneers (0-3) at Steelers (2-1) The Bucs are bad. Really bad. With QB Josh McCown probably sidelined, look for Mike Glennon to take over the reigns. Glennon started 13 games for the Bucs last season as a rookie, but won’t have much success on the road against the Steelers. Pick: Steelers

Dolphins (1-2) at Raiders (0-3) The Raiders defense played tough last week against the Patriots and frustrated Tom Brady all day. Coach Philbin has refused to name his starting quarterback this week, leading to speculation that Ryan Tannehill could be seeing the bench. Too much uncertainty makes for a tough day at Wembley Stadium. Pick: Raiders

Jaguars (0-3) at Chargers (2-1) Rookie Blake Bortles gets the call. Enough said. Pick: Chargers

Eagles (3-0) at 49ers (1-2) Aren’t the 49ers supposed to be a Super Bowl contender this year? This is the week they finally start playing like one. Pick: 49ers

Falcons (2-1) at Vikings (1-2) Matt Ryan is on fire with almost 1,000 yards passing after just three games. Add Devin Hester to the mix and it’s a recipe for disaster in Minnesota, who will be led by rookie QB Teddy Bridgewater in his first NFL start. Pick: Falcons

Saints (1-2) at Cowboys (2-1) I may have underestimated the Cowboys last week. Both their offense and defense were clicking as they overcame a 21-point deficit to defeat the Rams. However, that was the Rams and this is the Saints. Pick: Saints

Patriots (2-1) at Chiefs (1-2) The Patriots offense is struggling and they almost gave one away last week against the winless Raiders. Arrowhead is a tough place to play, but the Pats squeak by in a nail-biter. Pick: Patriots
