I'll get us started this week. Thursday, Oct. 3 Los Angeles Rams at Seattle Seahawks 8:20 p.m. The Rams haven't played that well, despite their 3-1 record. For some reason, though, I think they will beat the Hawks in Seattle. Sunday, Oct 6 Jacksonville Jaguars at Carolina Panthers 1 p.m. I'm going with the 'stache! Arizona Cardinals at Cincinnati Bengals 1 p.m. No matter who wins, viewers will probably lose with this game. Atlanta Falcons at Houston Texans 1 p.m. Disappointing start to the season for the Falcons. Still a tough pick, as I think the Falcons will pick things up later in the year and the Texans' O line is suspect at best. Tampa Bay Buccaneers at New Orleans Saints 1 p.m. Yes, the Bucs scored 55 points last week. Yes, their defense got a bunch of turnovers and sacks. Yes, Brees is still injured. I'm taking this well-rounded Saints team at home, despite all that. Minnesota Vikings at New York Giants 1 p.m. The Giants have played above expectations while the Vikings have played below. The Vikes are still the better team. Chicago Bears at Oakland Raiders (London) 1 p.m. I feel pretty vindicated about my criticism of the Gruden signing so far. New York Jets at Philadelphia Eagles 1 p.m. It's the Eagles vs LeVeon Bell and some other guys. Eagles should win. Baltimore Ravens at Pittsburgh Steelers 1 p.m. It's in Pittsburgh, the Steelers are coming off a dominating win, while the Ravens have had a couple of disappointing losses. I don't think this Steelers team is all that good, though, while the Ravens have talent. Buffalo Bills at Tennessee Titans 1 p.m. A defensive game. After the Bills stymied the Pats last week, I'll go with them. New England Patriots at Washington Redskins 1 p.m. How easy is the Pats' road to the playoffs? Denver Broncos at Los Angeles Chargers 4:05 p.m. I don't even really know what the Broncos are looking like so far. The Chargers are looking as if they will once again be more hype than substance, but I think they squeak out a win. Green Bay Packers at Dallas Cowboys 4:25 p.m. I'd like to take the Packers, but I give the Cowboys the edge at home. Indianapolis Colts at Kansas City Chiefs 8:20 p.m. This could be a very high scoring game. The Colts don't have enough to stop the Chiefs. Monday, Oct. 7 Cleveland Browns at San Francisco 49ers 8:15 p.m. 49ers defense is looking good and they are at home. The Browns have found a bit of the mojo they were expected to show this season, so this could be a good one.
