Not only will the Bears have to deal with Brady and the passing game, the Patriots have shown they can run the ball with the rookie Michel. The check here Patriots defense will be tested by Rodgers and the Green Bay offense. The Packers’ passing game averages 308.1 yards per game, fifth-best in the NFL.
Green Bay @ Washington
If not for the Browns they’d likely be the worst team in the league. San Francisco entered the season with high hopes on new head coach Rich Kelly, but expectations died a long time ago. With no quarterback and an inconsistent running game combined with a stout division in the NFC West, the 49ers had the cards stacked against them this year.
Carolina Panthers At New York Giants 1 P M Et, Caesars
Miami are 5-1 in their last six games at home, and even after a week off, Detroit will have a fight on their hands if they are to stop the Dolphins on the ground. It just so happens Detroit are also one of the worst teams when it comes to stopping the run, allowing the third most rushing yards-per-game this year. If last week’s narrow win over the Bears was anything to go by, we should expect more of the same from the Dolphins this week. Surprisingly enough though, the Vikings haven’t enjoyed playing the Jets. Minnesota are 1-6 in their last seven games against New York, and are a less than impressive on the road. Fortunately, history suggests the Eagles are favourites in this for a reason – they are 4-2 straight up vs. Carolina at home.
Cincinnati Bengals At Baltimore Ravens
Kyler Murray has thrown for 1,741 yards while completing 73.8% of his passes (144-for-195), with 14 touchdowns and four interceptions (290.2 yards per game). He’s also run the ball 37 times for 116 yards and three touchdowns. Justin Fields has thrown for 632 yards while completing 53.5% of his passes, with two touchdowns and three interceptions (105.3 yards per game).
Geno Smith did nearly lead the Seahawks back against Pittsburgh last week but Seattle fell in overtime. What makes this pick even more dangerous is that New Orleans might see a player return to the lineup. Kicker Will Lutz may be returning and Michael Thomas is a couple of weeks away.
Mark Ingram is averaging 18.0 touches per game over his last two games and is worth a contrarian dart-throw in GPPs. The Cardinals DST is in a prime spot against rookie third-round pick Davis Mills, who has thrown six picks and been sacked 12 times in four starts. Brandin Cooks is still worth a look in GPPs based on usage alone, as he has run a route on 95% of Texans dropbacks this season and is averaging 6.7 catches for 80.2 yards on 9.5 targets per game. The Chiefs stymied Heinicke and McLaurin last week, so this doesn’t bode well for Ryan Tannehill, A.J. Brown and Julio Jones — especially with left tackle Taylor Lewan out.
Before getting blown out by the Bengals, four of the Lions’ five losses came by 10 points or fewer. In Week 15 of last season, the Rams lost outright as 17-point home favorites against the Jets. During Carolina’s three-game losing streak, Sam Darnold has thrown four touchdown passes, six interceptions and completed just 54.7% of his passes.
