Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Tennessee Titans. Jaguars win: 21-14
Honestly, no one really cares about this Thursday night football game outside of Titan and Jaguar fans. Both teams have been playing awful, and there isn’t much on the line for this game besides which coach is going to be on the hot seat and who gets closer to a top ten pick in the 2017 NFL draft. I expect the Jaguars to take this game due to having a more completed offense than the Tennessee Titans have a team. The final score score will be 21-14 with two touchdowns thrown by Blake Bortles for 250 yards and two interceptions.
New England Patriots vs. Buffalo Bills Patriots win: 17-7
This should be an interesting game as the Buffalo Bills won their first game in this year's series 16-0. But without Brady, a third string rookie with a broken thumb, and no Gronk. Brady’s vengeance tour 2.0 will shut Rex Ryan’s hopes of winning the division. Expect the Buffalo Bills to get three sacks on Brady while it is going to be a low-scoring game 17-7 New England Patriots while Gronk gets number 69 in career touchdown receptions, and Tom Brady throws for 200 yards and two touchdowns.
Arizona Cardinals vs. Carolina Panthers. Cardinals win: 28-10
The Arizona Cardinals win this game. Cam Newton is just awful this year, and their defense is horrible and outright laughable at times. Josh Norman was clearly a huge part of the team's success last year. Bruce Arians and the Arizona Cardinals are in vengeance mode for losing in embarrassing fashion in the NFC championship last year. Expect David Johnson to play his heart out and make Cam Newton cry. David Johnson will have over 100 all-purpose yards and have three touchdowns while Carson Palmer will not implode this game and throw for 200 yards and a touchdown that goes to David Johnson. Cam Newton will throw for 200 yards and a touchdown.
New York Jets vs. Cleveland Browns Browns win: 14-7
Probably the most boring game of the week, it is really going to be a Fitzmediocre experience. Watch out for Terrelle Pryor, the only football hope in Cleveland. He does everything for the Browns and is their only spotlight of greatness currently. Flip a coin to see who will win this game. Heads for the Jets. Tails for the Browns. I got Tails so that the Browns will win the game. 14-7 Pryor can be expected to get over 100 all-purpose yards.
Detroit Lions vs. Houston Texans. Lions win: 28-10
Mathew Stafford is on a hot streak this season and seems like he is going to win a couple more game until this hot streak ends. Brock “lobster” Osweiler has been mediocre this season, but better than Fitzpatrick. Not a great feat, but at least he is winning the division The Houston Texans are without JJ Watt for the season and their defense isn’t the same without him. Expect Matthew Stafford to throw for over 350 yards and four touchdowns against the Houston Texans.
Kansas City Chiefs vs. Indianapolis Colts. Chiefs win: 20-7
Kansas City wins this game; their defense is too stout for Andrew Luck to win this game. The Colts have been playing abysmally for the past two seasons. Don't expect any changes now. Alex Smith will play a boring game for Chief fans; however, he will win the game for them by not making a turnover. It will be a low scoring game. However, the Chiefs defense will force some turnovers and sacks. Andrew Luck will throw for 200 yards and one touchdown with an interception.
Seattle Seahawks vs. New Orleans Saints. Seattle wins: 28-7
Seattle’s defense will have a tough game against Drew Brees and company. Brees has been a great passer his entire career. However, he hasn’t played this amazing defense yet. I expect the Legion of Boom to shut down Drew Brees and only allow him to throw for 200 yards with a touchdown and one interception. Expect DeShawn Shead #35 on the defense to be an unspoken hero in the game. Russell Wilson will return to normal form and throw for 300 yards and four touchdowns two of which go to Jimmy Graham who has 95 yards receiving on seven receptions.
Oakland Raiders vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Raiders win: 30-17
Derek Carr is playing very well this year thanks to Michael Crabtree and Amari Cooper. They will win Sunday’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Raiders are a complete team currently and will outperform Jameis Winston and a subpar defense. Derek Carr will throw for over 400 yards for 3 three touchdowns, and the team could have nearly 500 yards of total offense. Jameis Winston will throw for over 200 yards and two touchdowns
San Diego Chargers vs. Denver Broncos. Broncos win: 30-14
I feel sorry for Phillip Rivers, I really do. For countless years as a Charger, he never got a ring and this year he won't make the playoffs. The San Diego Chargers have a curse right now on ACL season ending injuries. The Season is not looking bright at all, and this game against the Denver Broncos will not go in their favor as they will lose to the Broncos. Trevor Sieman has been playing quite well (better than Brock “Lobster” Osweiler) but expect him to play well and win against the Chargers. Trevor Sieman will throw for 300 yards and two touchdowns and an interception. The Broncos Defense will score a defensive touchdown this game and will only allow two touchdowns. One by Melvin Gordon and the other by Phillip Rivers. Joey Bosa will have seven tackles and two sacks for the Chargers.
Green Bay Packers vs. Atlanta Falcons. Falcons win: 34-20
This will be the game of the week. Two of the best teams in the league will be facing off against each other. Matt Ryan and the Atlanta Falcons have had the best offense in the league. Who is going to stop Julio Jones now? No one. That's who. Aaron Rodgers hasn’t been himself all season long, and the Packers defense isn’t the greatest this year. I expect this game to be mostly a shootout that could go either way. However, the Falcons will win the game. Matt Ryan will throw for 400 yards and three touchdowns. Two of which goto Julio Jones who has 170 yards receiving. The Packers offense could produce. But most likely will not due to the lack of having a proper halfback on the team.
Philadelphia Eagles vs. Dallas Cowboys. Cowboys win: 21-14
The rookie Qb duel will be an interesting one. Will Dak Prescott perform better against an excellent Eagles defense or will Carson Wentz play well against the marginal Cowboys defense? I think Dak will prevail. With Players like Zeke and the great wall of ‘merica (Dallas’ offensive line) Dak has a better system around him to succeed. Expect Zeke Elliot to run for at least 100 yards and two touchdowns against the Eagles defense. While Carson Wentz of the Eagles will throw for 300 yards with two touchdowns.
Washington Redskins vs. Cincinnati Bengals. Bengals win: 21-14
Kirk Cousins and Andy Dalton will ball it out. However, Josh Norman will perform highly and stop the nearly automatic 100 yards and a touchdown from AJ Green. AJ Green still may get those 100 yards. However, it will be challenging. This will be a low scoring game that will be mostly a defensive game and a low turnover game. Kirk Cousins will throw for nearly 300 yards and one touchdown. While Andy Dalton will throw for 200 yards and a touchdown, while the Bengals have 100 yards on the ground and two rushing touchdowns.
Minnesota Vikings vs. Chicago Bears. Vikings win: 28-6
Monday Night Football Massacre Bears edition. The Bears have been competing for the first overall nearly all season, and they are playing a team that is just more talented on every level than the Bears. I expect that this game puts John Fox on the hot seat and the Vikings defense to have one defensive touchdown with multiple sacks and takeaways. Anthony Barr will have seven tackles and two sacks throughout the game. While the Bears have almost 100 yards receiving from Alshon Jeffery.
