Last Week Record: 3-0. Overall Record: 8-7
Seahawks @ Cincinnati CIN -2.5
I’m going back to Burrow here. He crushed us a couple weeks ago against the Titans. A disgusting loss, but I think that woke the Bengals offense up a bit. I’m not sure they’re as good as they have been the last few years, but I do believe they’re starting to put it together offensively. I’ll take the Bengals to cover in a tight one against a pretty good Seahawks team. Don’t let me down again Joe Cool.
PICK – Cincinnati
Panthers @ Dolphins MIA -13.5
Another big number for the Dolphins, but they’re home and they’re playing against a rookie QB who is struggling to get going. The Panthers pass defense has been top 10 so far this season, but their run defense is bottom of the pack. Going up against a Miami team that has world class sprinters everywhere could make this a tough game. Especially if you offense can’t stay on the field wearing down your defense even more in the Miami heat. I look for Raheem Mostert to run all over Carolina, plus if you can just get the ball to Tyreek Hill, with even the tiniest window of space, toss up the peace sign because he’s gone.
PICK – Dolphins
Eagles @ Jets PHI -7
The Eagles head 90 miles north bus up to a stadium they’re plenty familiar with. Normally they’d see it decked out in blue, but this time we’ll see some other shade of green around the stadium. The Jets have a decent defense that could keep it close a it, but they can be run on. Just like I mentioned above in the Carolina-Miami game if the Jets offense can’t stay on the field the defense is going to wear down against a ridiculously good offensive line and run game. Eagles O-line and run game wins this one for the birds as they just wear another team down. Moving on to 6-0.
Pick – Eagles
Go Birds! Go Phillies!
