Giants vs 49ers

New York Giants Official LogoSan Francisco 49ers Official LogoThe Giants bounced back to get a much-needed win against the Cardinals last week. While their 31-points second half was impressive, it came against one of the worst teams in the league. They took advantage of a bad defense to rally late, but now they’ll be up against the elite 49ers. Expect their offense to be stifled while their defense buckles under the relentless offensive attack of the Niners.

San Francisco has looked like one of the best teams in the league so far. They were able to hold off a vastly improved Rams team last weekend, thanks to Christian McCaffrey’s dominance as well as their talented defense. Brock Purdy has also looked sharp, dismissing beliefs that 2022 was merely a fluke. The odds show how much better they are than the Giants, and we think they easily cover it tonight.

Titans vs Browns

Tennessee Titans Official LogoCleveland Browns Official LogoWe have some big concerns about the Titans offense, but they looked much better in week two. Ryan Tannehill is no longer the quarterback he once was, but he did complete 20 of his 24 pass attempts on Sunday. While the Titans have struggled to use new receive DeAndre Hopkins, the rest of their pass catchers have been able to carry the load early on. The Browns defense is great, but we see the Titans griding them down.

The Browns have one of the top three defenses in football, but their offense has some major problems that need to be addressed. Deshaun Watson looks bad, and now Nick Chubb is out for the remainder of the season after a brutal knee injury. Backup running back Jerome Ford will not fare well against an elite Titans run defense, forcing Watson to throw the ball, which he has not done well the last two seasons.

Saints vs Packers

New Orleans Saints Official LogoGreen Bay Packers Official LogoWhile it is early, the addition of Derek Carr has been paying off in a big way. He has been able to boost their offense just enough, giving their elite defense some breathing room. However, they have been up against two subpar offenses in the Titans and Panthers. While the Packers are far from great, they have played well. The Saints should be able to run the ball on Sunday but look for Carr to struggle on the road against a good Packers secondary.

The Packers have exceeded expectations through their first two week, despite their loss last weekend. They have not only played well on the road but have also been without several key offensive players. While we aren’t sure if Aaron Jones will be ready to play, it looks like Christian Watson will. He was very hard to stop at the end of last season, and his speed will cause problems for the talented Saints defense.

Broncos vs Dolphins

Denver Broncos Official LogoMiami Dolphins Official LogoThe Broncos hoped this would be the year they bounce back, but they instead find themselves sitting at 0-2. They looked awful in Week 1, though their offense bounced back against the Commanders last week. However, their defense continues to underperform. Most notably, they allowed first-year starter Sam Howell to throw for 299 yards and two touchdowns. They also allowed 5.3 yards per carry on the ground. Miami will expose both of those problems, leading to a lopsided loss for Denver.

Miami has been as good as advertised in 2023. Tua continues to play at an elite level, while defenses continue to struggle against Tyreek Hill and Jalen Waddle. On top of that, they got a monster game from Raheem Mostert, who went for 121 yards and two touchdowns against a good Pats defense. We see Miami dominating through the air and on the ground, leading to an easy cover of the spread.

Cowboys vs Cardinals

Dallas Cowboys Official LogoArizona Cardinals Official LogoThis isn’t going to be a close game. The Cowboys have looked like the best team in football, outscoring their first two opponents 70-10. While they didn’t face great offenses in the Giant and Jets, we did see them shred both of their talented defenses. The Dallas defense is filled with playmakers, and CeDee Lamb looks like he is ready to put up a monster season on offense. The Cardinals don’t have the talent to stop Dallas on either side of the ball, and it will lead to a lopsided win for America’s Team.

The Cardinals looked better than expected for the first six quarters of the season. Unfortunately, they showed their true colors after that, allowing the Giants to score 31 points in the second half in their Week 2 loss. The fact is they just don’t have a lot of talent, and they will have no answers for this suffocating Dallas defense. Look for the Cardinals to add another ugly loss in their journey for the first pick in the 2024 NFL Draft.

Steelers vs Raiders

Pittsburgh Steelers Official LogoLas Vegas Raiders Official LogoThe Steelers have not looked like the team many expected them to be, but they did get a crucial win against the Browns last week. Kenny Pickett hasn’t looked great in their first two games, though that isn’t surprising given he faced two of the top five defenses in the league. He and the Steelers offense will have a much easier challenge Sunday with the Raiders, and we think they respond by putting up a big number in Vegas.

This is not a good Raiders team. While they managed to beat the Broncos in Week 1, they were destroyed by the Bills last weekend. We see another big loss coming again this weekend due to Jimmy Garoppolo. He has 385 passing yards, three touchdown, and three interceptions so far this season, and looked totally lost against Buffalo last week. Now he’ll be dealing with TJ Watt in the backfield, and it is going to lead to another bad showing.

Eagles vs Buccaneers

Philadelphia Eagles Official LogoTampa Bay Buccaneers Official LogoWhile the Eagles have started 2-0, they have not looked like the same team that dominated the NFC a year ago. They beat the Vikings and Pats (who are a combined 0-4 on the season) by less than seven points. Their pass game hasn’t been overly impressive, with Hurts throwing for a combined 363 yards and two touchdowns. While we think their defense helps them win this game, it is going to be very close.

The Bucs are 2-0 and have looked fantastic through their first two games. Their defense has shut down the Vikings and Bears, while Baker Mayfield is beginning to look like the quarterback he once was. The Bucs still aren’t great, but the Eagles have looked beatable to begin the season. We think their defense contains the Eagles while Baker finds success against a Philly secondary that has struggled in their first two games.

Rams vs Bengals

Los Angeles Rams Official LogoCincinnati Bengals Official LogoSpeaking of surprise teams, few have impressed more than the Rams. They blew out Seattle in Week 1 and came close to beating the Niners last week. Their defense is vastly improved, and their pass attack looks like it did when they won the Super Bowl. On top of that, running back Kyren Willliams seems to be breaking out, giving them another major weapon. We see the Rams taking advantage of a hobbled Joe Burrow, dropping the Bengals to 0-3. 

The Bengals have started out 0-2 for the second season in a row, but this time is different. Joe Burrow’s calf injury has had a major impact and could ultimately force the Bengals to place him on the IR. His struggles have led to their elite receiving duo to also struggle, leaving an aging Joe Mixon to carry the load. The Bengals defense has also not impressed, and we think they get embarrassed at home versus a greatly improved Rams team on Monday night.
