It was a rough slate of games to choose from this week but Josh and I are going to power through this week of unstellar match-ups.
1. Dallas at Detroit- Both teams are 4-3 and are in tight division races. Both have explosive offenses and secondaries that give up huge plays. I think Detroit takes this one because they are healthier. No DeMarco Murray or DeMarcus Ware for the Cowboys today.
- Lions 30-24
2. Miami at New England- The Dolphins have gone as cold as it has been in Green Bay lately after a scorching 3-0 start. The Patriots losing last week made the AFC East surprisingly close. However Brady will finally have Gronk and Danny Amendola together for the first time all year. Brady could please his fantasy owners this week.
- Patriots- 27-20
3. NY Jets at Cincinnati- The Jets have to be the surprise team of the season with a 4-3 record and being led by rookie QB Geno Smith. The Bengals have looked like one of the tops teams in the AFC the last few weeks and Andy Dalton is playing some of the best football of his young career. He might not look so good today because of the Jets front seven but I think he is able to hit stud wide receiver A.J. Green for a couple big plays today.
- Bengals- 20-17
4. Washington at Denver- The Broncos lost to the top pick in the 2012 draft in Andew Luck last week and will see the second overall pick in RG3 today. Griffin looked better last week and Denver has one of the worst pass defenses in the NFL. Denver is coming off its first loss of the year after Indy got after Manning who now has two sprained ankles. I don’t give Washington much of a chance to win this game but if they put pressure on Manning it could get interesting.
- Broncos- 31-23
5. Packers at Minnesota- The Packers have won three straight while the Vikings have used three different starting quarterbacks this year. They are going back to Christian Ponder who gives the Vikings’ offense the ability to stretch plays with his athleticism. His passing has looked rough this year but Adrian Peterson 100% healthy or not I will not take them lightly. Aaron Rodgers is still putting up good numbers even without 3 of his top 4 play-makers. The Packs running game is the difference tonight.
- Green Bay- 30-20
