10. San Francisco 49ers (+7)
Alright, deep breath. It looks like the 49ers are ready to be buried yet despite all of those injuries.
The 49ers did what they should have done this week and they beat up on a bad Giants team while getting their new starters some real reps. It looks like Jimmy G is going to be out for a little bit, but not as long as Nick Bosa and Solomon Thomas which is good news for the 49ers.
Going forward the 49ers have two more easy weeks in front of them before they have to take on any serious challenges, so if they make it through unscathed then it will give them a nice cushion as they try to get healthy and make a big for the playoffs down the line.
9. Buffalo Bills (+2)
The Buffalo Bills are for real and they look like the clear favorites in the AFC East.
Offensively, Josh Allen has always had a rocket arm, but now he is dicing people up using other options too like Tyler Kroft and Cole Beasley. Combine that with a decent ground game (that didn’t even feature Allen’s legs today) and you have a potent team.
Defensively, the Bills are usually very solid but now the pressure isn’t all on them so they can get a little bit more lax. It isn’t ideal to give up so many points, but as long as you finish strong and don’t make a habit of it then it is fine to see this team win some 35-30 games every now and then.
