Jeremy Sneed & Xavier Cantrell
Thursday Night Football
7:25 Dolphins (3-3) @ Patriots (6-0)
Jeremy & Xavier: The Dolphins have been rejuvenated since Joe Philbin getting fired and Dan Campbell getting hired. But, the Patriots have been unstoppable this season and haven’t really come close to losing yet. This week will be no different and we think the Patriots will remain undefeated and take down the Dolphins 34-21.
Sunday Morning in London
8:30 Lions (1-6) @ Chiefs (2-5)
Xavier: The Lions are coming off of a tough lose against divisional opponent Minnesota. Despite the Chiefs getting their first win of the season, I think Matthew Stafford and the Lions offense will get a much needed win in Kansas City. Final score: 27-18
Jeremy: The Chiefs offense looked rejuvenated against the Steelers last week. The Chiefs may have lucked out last week facing youngster Landry Jones, but I think the Chiefs will continue their momentum and pick up their second straight victory with a final score of 19-13.
12:00 Chargers (2-5) @ Ravens (1-6)
Jeremy: I have picked the Ravens a lot this season and it hasn’t worked out for me too much, but I am confident in them once again this week against the Chargers. The Chargers defense has been catastrophic throughout this season and I think Flacco and the Ravens will exploit that defense this week. I think the Ravens improve to 2-6 this week with 35-17 victory in Baltimore.
Xavier: The Chargers has been playing very well with the help of Danny Woodhead, Ladarius Green and Keenan Allen. I think the Ravens, having lost three straight games, will not have enough momentum to take down the Chargers. I believe the Chargers will win this game on the road with a 35-21 victory.
12:00 Cardinals (5-2) @ Browns (2-5)
Jeremy & Xavier: The Cleveland Browns are struggling with injured Josh McCown and trouble maker Johnny Manziel. Despite this, the Cardinals have been very impressive this season and have proved that they can win through the running game and the passing game. Even though the Browns are home this week, we think the Cardinals offense will be too strong for the Browns. Final score: 31-17
12:00 Vikings (4-2) @ Bears (2-4)
Jeremy & Xavier: The Bears are coming off of a bye week, but they lost a tough game before that losing to the Lions. The Bears defense has not been doing too well this year and isn’t even close to resembling the Bears defense we were used to seeing under Lovie Smith. The Vikings offense is finding a good rhythm after a 28-19 win over the Lions. We think the Vikings get their 5th win of the season riding an amazing performance from Adrian Peterson. Final score: 28-17
12:00 Bengals (6-0) @ Steelers (4-3)
Jeremy & Xavier: The Steelers are in trouble either way this week. If Big Ben comes back he will probably be rusty against a solid Bengals defense and if Landry Jones starts again he will struggle against their defense. Andy Dalton is playing at an MVP level this season and we think he will have another huge performance and help the Bengals beat the Steelers and improve to 7-0. Final score: 41-21
12:00 Titans (1-5) @ Texans (2-5)
Jeremy: The Texans released QB Ryan Mallett after missing the team flight last week. With that distraction gone, I think the Texans luck out this weekend in playing the Titans who aren’t sure yet if Mariota will be starting or not. I think whether or not Mariota or Mettenberger start that the Texans defense wins the game for Houston creating at least three turnovers. I think the Texans win this game 17-3.
Xavier: Zack Mettenberger played decent in last week’s game just throwing an untimely interception late in that ball game. I think the Texans are not a very good offensive team and I think the Titans offense does what it takes to win this game, with or without Mariota. Final score: 21-14.
12:00 Giants (4-3) @ Saints (3-4)
Jeremy & Xavier: The Giants offense has looked really inconsistent this season and now Odell Beckham Jr. is becoming a liability on offense. The Giant defense won them the game last week against the Cowboys. The Saints are riding a two game winning streak and their offense is really starting to click on all cylinders. We think the Saints take down the Giants and win their third straight game with a final score of 20-17.
12:00 49ers (2-5) @ Rams (3-3)
Xavier: The 49ers are coming off of a rough 20-3 loss to Seattle in week 7. I think San Francisco will bounce back this week and upset the Rams in St. Louis. Final score: 23-17
Jeremy: Todd Gurley is proving himself to be an elite running back in this league (yes, I said elite). The Rams have been riding the success of Gurley and I think this week will be no different against a struggling 49ers defense. I think Gurley runs for another 125+ yard game and the Rams easily beat the niners 24-6.
12:00 Buccaneers (2-4) @ Falcons (6-1)
Jeremy & Xavier: The Buccaneers offense has not been as strong as Lovie Smith and Jameis Winston were hoping for coming into this season. With that being said, the Falcons offense has been much better than anyone though with the emergence of Devonta Freeman at running back. We think the Falcons offense will roll all over the Buccaneers this week and improve to 7-1 with a final score of 42-20.
3:05 Jets (4-2) @ Raiders (3-3)
Jeremy & Xavier: The Jets had opportunities to take down the powerhouse Patriots during week 7 but failed to do so. The Raiders are coming off of a huge win against the Chargers last week. But, we think that the Jets defense is too strong for the Raiders and the Jets will win this game easily 31-13.
3:25 Seahawks (3-4) @ Cowboys (2-4)
Jeremy & Xavier: The Cowboys should be getting Dez Bryant back this week which is great news. Bu, with Matt Cassell at QB and going against that Seattle defense, the Seahawks are going to beat the Cowboys this week. We think that Russell Wilson will have a big game and lead the Seahawks offense to the victory. Final score: 29-18
Sunday Night Football
7:30 Packers (6-0) @ Broncos (6-0)
Jeremy & Xavier: The Broncos have relied heavily on their defense so far this season and we think that their offense will not be strong enough to take down the Packers. Aaron Rodgers is performing at an MVP level with a mix-match of weapons. We think the Packers will blow out the Broncos with a 42-21 victory in Denver.
Monday Night Football
7:30 Colts (3-4) @ Panthers (6-0)
Jeremy & Xavier: The Colts have been inconsistent throughout the first half of this NFL season, but the Panthers have pretty consistent and proven their worth this season. Even though Cam Newton struggled last week the Panthers still beat the Eagles 27-16. We think that Cam and the Panthers improve to 7-0 with a victory over the Colts this week. Final score: 31-21
