BE A SUR­VIVOR

Sunday Sports - - SPORTS - — Dan Bil­icki

Af­ter some big up­sets last week culled the field, we get an­other tough slate of games to choose from.

The Ea­gles are seven-point favourites against the vis­it­ing Car­di­nals and look like the top choice this week. Play­ing a cross-coun­try game with an early start rarely works out well for the visi­tors and Ari­zona needed OT to beat the 49ers last week.

In the Mon­day nighter, the vis­it­ing Vik­ings are favoured against at Bears team that is giv­ing Mitchell Tru­bisky his first ca­reer start. Min­nesota should also have Sam Brad­ford back at QB, giv­ing a needed boost to its pass­ing game af­ter strug­gling two of Case Keenum’s three starts.

If you’re a big gam­bler, you could take a risk and, shock­ingly, pick the New York Jets. A matchup with the Browns is the eas­i­est one they’ll see this sea­son and it will burn a team that you’re un­likely to save for later on. Don’t for­get the Jets have al­ready fought to two wins this sea­son, too.
