NFL Predictions: A Look at Every NFL Game This Season
Thursday, Oct. 27th-
Jacksonville Jaguars at Tennessee Titans:
The Jags look to get back in the win column against their divisional foe, but the Titans are looking to put to bed the claims that they are the worst team in the NFL. The Jags are still a young team, and oftentimes the young teams can overlook teams withe 1-6 records, and on this night, that is exactly what happens. The Pick: Titans 24 Jaguars 20
Sunday, Oct. 30th-
Washington Redskins at Cincinnati Bengals:
The Bengals offense is starting to look a lot like the offense we saw in 2015 before Andy Dalton got hurt. Andy Dalton throws for 322 yards and A.J. Green twice beats Josh Norman for touchdowns. The Redskins appear to be hanging within striking distance until Kirk Cousins throws the ball to Adam Jones for a pick six.
The Pick: Bengals 38 Redskins 24
Kansas City Chiefs at Indianapolis Colts:
Andrew Luck comes back down to Earth for a game as the Chiefs intercept Luck three times on the day. It’s very hard to beat the Chiefs turning the ball over in that fashion.
The Pick: Chiefs 20 Colts 13
Oakland Raiders at Tampa Bay Buccaneers:
The Bucs come out strong in this one, jumping to a 20-3 halftime lead. However, lead by two TD’s to Amari Cooper, the Raiders storm back and shut out the home team in the second half for a hard fought, comeback victory.
The Pick: Raiders 23 Buccaneers 20
Seattle Seahawks at New Orleans Saints:
The Saints haven’t lost at home yet this season, but the Seahawks aren’t happy about their first loss of the season either. An upset Seahawks team is friends to nobody, and hands the Saints their first home loss of the season.
The Pick: Seahawks 27 Saints 17
Detroit Lions at Houston Texans:
After the beatdown in Denver a week prior, and the lack of overall success over the season’s’ first seven weeks, Brock Osweiler looks like a shaken quarterback. He takes another five sacks in this game, and throws two INT’s, and it’s safe to say the Texans may be having some big time buyers remorse.
The Pick: Lions 30 Texans 13
New York Jets at Cleveland Browns:
The Browns have certainly played a pretty decent brand of football the past few weeks, but today is a down day for Robert Griffin III, as he is picked by Revis on two different occasions. It’s a strong overall effort for the J-E-T-S Jets Jets Jets who sit atop the AFC East.
The Pick: Jets 28 Browns 14
Green Bay Packers at Atlanta Falcons:
It doesn’t get any easier for the Falcons who have really struggled essentially all year. However, on this day Matt Ryan decides it’s time to throw exclusively to Julio Jones, targeting him 22 times, connecting for 17 of them. Julio has a monster day, 256 yards and 3 TD’s, and the Falcons do the unthinkable and upset the white hot Packers.
The Pick: Falcons 31 Packers 30
New England Patriots at Buffalo Bills:
The Bills bested the Jimmy Garoppolo version of the Patriots, but the Tom Brady Patriots are a bit different of an animal. This game is over, and it’s over early. May has well have not even played the game.
The Pick: Patriots 48 Bills 12
San Diego Chargers at Denver Broncos:
San Diego was shutout the last time they played the Broncos, so scoring any points would mark improvement. They do score some points, 6 of them. Rivers is still sacked another five times, and intercepted three more times. Yikes, Denver’s defense really is better than the 2015 Super Bowl version.
The Pick: Broncos 23 Chargers 6
Arizona Cardinals at Carolina Panthers:
A rematch of the NFC Title game from a year ago brings a lot of the same—another Panthers blowout. Cam Newton is absolutely incredible in this game, throwing for 312 yards and three TD’s, two to Kelvin Benjamin and one to Greg Olsen. He also rushes for two more TD’s, and finishes the game with 128 rushing yards. They don’t call him CaMVP for nothing.
The Pick: Panthers 42 Cardinals 24
Philadelphia Eagles at Dallas Cowboys:
Tony Romo finally makes his 2016 debut. This time his backup was able to keep the team afloat as he recovered from a broken back. This game ends up being a highly contested game, as the Eagles really put up a good fight. Unfortunately the combination of Elliott running the ball, Romo throwing the ball, and Bryant catching the ball becomes too much for the Eagles to handle.
The Pick: Cowboys 34 Eagles 27
Monday, Oct. 31st-
Minnesota Vikings at Chicago Bears:
The Bears have struggled this year, but there is a reason they play the games, especially division games. Jay Cutler plays his best game of the year without a doubt, and the Bears sneak in a win against the reigning NFC North champions.
The Pick: Bears 26 Vikings 16
New York Jets: 5-3
Buffalo Bills: 4-4
New England Patriots: 4-4
Miami Dolphins: 3-4
Pittsburgh Steelers: 6-1
Cincinnati Bengals: 5-3
Baltimore Ravens: 4-3
Cleveland Browns: 2-6
Indianapolis Colts: 5-3
Jacksonville Jaguars: 4-3
Houston Texans: 2-6
Tennessee Titans: 2-6
Denver Broncos: 7-1
Oakland Raiders: 5-3
Kansas City Chiefs: 4-3
San Diego Chargers: 1-7
