NFL WEEK 7: RECAP

THURSDAY NIGHT GAME

Baltimore Ravens(-1.5) @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers The Bucc’s have looked disheveled in the last 2 outings. The Ravens will control the ground game with QB Lamar Jackson and RB Gus Edwards eating up the clock. Ravens take a close one 26-25.

EARLY SUNDAY GAMES

Denver Broncos vs. Jacksonville Jaguars(-2.5) Another NFL game in the UK, home of @TheBrysh, features the Broncos against the Jag’s. Jacksonville has played 8 times in London, the Broncos only once. Give home field and the victory to the Jags 23-22.

Carolina Panthers @ Atlanta Falcons(-4.5) Atlanta is facing an injury endemic, with their star RB and up to 3 starting DB’s missing this week. Despite the Falcons injury woes, they are facing the worst offense in the NFL. Take Atlanta over Carolina 30-26.

Chicago Bears @ Dallas Cowboys(-9.5) Da Bears took New England apart last week…so what! Dallas QB Dak Prescott will continue to improve and pick up 200+ in the air. The Cowboys pass rush will plague QB Justin Fields, Dallas wins it 33-23.

Miami Dolphins(-3.5) @ Detroit Lions The Lions are averaging only 3 points in their last 2 outings! Look for Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa to turn it up against the suspect Detroit defense, which will give him all day to find targets. Take the Dolphins 26-22.

Arizona Cardinals @ Minnesota Vikings(-4) This game should be a blast as 2 of the best WR’s face one another. The Vike’s DeAndre Hopkins and Arizona’s Justin Jefferson have the potential to haul in 100+ yards, Minnesota will prevail 30-25.

Las Vegas Raiders(-2) @ New Orleans Saints If you follow @TheBrysh you already know…Las Vegas is overrated! But in this case, I have to face the reality that the bumbling Saints can’t match up with the Raiders who will take the victory 26-25.

New England Patriots(-1.5) @ NY Jets The last time these football clubs met, the Pat’s annihilated the Jets 54-31. This time it will be a different story, maybe even another DPOW from Jets CB “Sauce” Gardner, New York wins a close one 32-31.

Pittsburgh Steelers @ Philadelphia Eagles(-10.5) The best of the NFC meets the worst of the AFC, betting on this game is the “no-brainer” of the week. The Eagles have to lose at some point…right? Well it won’t be this week, take the Eagles 35-20.

LATE SUNDAY GAMES

Tennessee Titans(-2) @ Houston Texans Titans QB Ryan Tannehill continues to have problems moving the ball through the air, but look for him to have a breakthrough game against the hapless Texans. It’s still close but @TheBrysh takes Titans 27-23.

Washington Commanders @ Indianapolis Colts(-3) Is it just me or do the Washington uniforms look like a college team from the 1950’s? Although I have no confidence in the Colts offensive line, or QB options, I still pick them to win 26-21.

San Francisco 49’ers(-1.5) @ LA Rams A Super Bowl hangover can be a lingering ailment, the Rams have proved that with underperformance. A bye week will be just what the doctor ordered as a revitalized LA Rams UPSET the favored 49’ers 24-23.

NY Giants @ Seattle Seahawks(-3) Seattle QB Geno Smith is a surprise to all who doomed the ‘Hawks this season. The Giants have worn out their “lucky rabbits foot”, just in time to face one of the top NFC offenses. Look for a Seahawks victory 29-22.

Green Bay Packers @ Buffalo Bills(-11) And now, the best of the AFC meets the worst of the NFC? The Packers haven’t met expectations, maybe QB Aaron Rodgers can turn things around with a homeopathic cure? The fully vaccinated Bills win it 27-14.

MONDAY NIGHT GAME

Cincinnati Bengals(-3.5) @ Cleveland Browns The hangover has dissipated and QB Joe Burrow and the Cincy offense are firing on all cylinders. Even though the Bengals defense is banged up, the Browns won’t keep up offensively, take the Bengals 28-22.
