San Francisco at St. Louis Pick: 49ers
The 49ers snap a two-game skid against an under-matched Rams team. QB Colin Kaepernick has a bounce-back game and silences the senseless 49ers fans who are calling for his head after two bad games.
Baltimore at Buffalo Pick: Ravens
The Ravens have gotten better each week, and another lesser opponent helps them move to 3-1. Look for a big game from Torrey Smith.
Cincinnati at Cleveland Pick: Bengals
The Browns aren’t able to re-create the new found energy they found last week against the Vikings. While the Bengals continue to look like one of the better teams in the AFC.
Chicago at Detroit Pick: Lions
The Bears lose a close one on the road. Calvin Johnson continues his dominance, while the Bears offensive line shows some kinks in their armor against the Lions defensive line.
NY Giants at Kansas City Pick: Chiefs
The Chiefs defense continues to cause opposing offenses fits, as the Giants move to a dismal 4-0, even after a valiant Eli Manning effort.
Arizona at Tampa Bay Pick: Buccaneers
The Bucs are finally able to win their first game of the season, after a huge performance from Doug Martin.
Indianapolis at Jacksonville Pick: Colts
The Jaguars don’t look like they will win a game this year and the Cots are coming off a huge win at San Fran.
Seattle at Houston Pick: Seahawks
Houston loses two in a row, after the Legion of Boom is able to dominate against Matt Schaub and the Texans passing offense.
Pittsburgh at Minnesota Pick: Steelers
Two big days from Ben Roethlisberger and Adrian Peterson. The Steelers prevail.
NY Jets at Tennessee Pick: Titans
The Titans defense makes Geno Smith look like a rookie, while the offense continues to improve. The Titans cut back on the turnovers and have their first lopsided victory of the season.
Washington at Oakland Pick: Redskins
A lock if the Raiders are without Terrelle Pryor, but Robert Griffin III and the Skins are able to pick up their first win of the season on a day where the Skins offense shows a glimpse of last seasons fireworks.
Philadelphia at Denver Pick: Broncos
Michael Vick and the Eagles are able to produce on offense, but Peyton Manning continues is absolute dominance against a weak Eagle secondary.
Dallas at San Diego Pick: Chargers
Philip Rivers has a big day and Tony Romo a sloppy one.
New England at Atlanta Pick: Falcons
The Falcons continue to miss an effective Roddy White; while the Pats are finally able to establish a rushing game against the weak Falcon defense.
Miami at New Orleans Pick: Saints
The Saints continue to roll against the surprise Miami Dolphins at home on Monday Night. The hype train for the Dolphins calms down after Ryan Tannehill struggles on the road.
