The Buffalo News - - NFL SUNDAY -

Pitts­burgh Steel­ers. Tougher than it should have been vs. Browns. (1)

Green Bay Pack­ers. Can make a mas­sive state­ment against Fal­cons. (2)

At­lanta Fal­cons. Can make a mas­sive state­ment against Pack­ers. (3)

Kansas City Chiefs. Andy Reid had ex­tra time to pre­pare. Watch out, Ea­gles. (4)

New Eng­land Pa­tri­ots. Will show that open­ing-night flop isn’t a trend. (6)

Dal­las Cow­boys. Dak Prescott al­ready look­ing like he’ll sur­pass his rookie great­ness. (12)

Min­nesota Vik­ings. One big de­fen­sive test passed. Can the Vik­ings make it two? (13)

Detroit Lions. Can prove their de­fense is for real vs. N.Y. Gi­ants. (15)

Tampa Bay Buc­ca­neers. Af­ter Hur­ri­cane Irma caused a bye, Bucs will try to show they’re not rusty. (11)

New York Gi­ants. Take Odell away and there’s not much left for Eli to work with. (10)

Den­ver Bron­cos. Pass-pro­tec­tion is­sues could spell trou­ble vs. Cow­boys. (18)

Hous­ton Tex­ans. De­shaun Wat­son has rough edges, but also a lot of tal­ent. (16) (20)

Seat­tle Sea­hawks. Should get a bounce-back win vs. 49ers. (5)

Oakland Raiders. Should have no trou­ble vs. sorry Jets. (8)

Mi­ami Dol­phins. How fo­cused will they be on foot­ball? (14)

Carolina Pan­thers. Cam New­ton has some rust to shake.

Ten­nessee Titans. Keep­ing Mar­cus Mar­i­ota up­right a chore in #Sack­sonville. (7) Bal­ti­more Ravens.

Philadel­phia Ea­gles. It’s stu­dent vs. teacher when Doug Ped­er­son faces Andy Reid. (22)

New Or­leans Saints. Maybe Adrian Peter­son “didn’t sign up for nine snaps,” but Saints have other ideas. (23)

Buf falo Bills. Much-an­tic­i­pated Sean McDer­mott-Bran­don Beane home­com­ing ar­rives. (24)

Jack­sonville Jaguars. Jaguars look to prove their de­fense is le­git. (28) Cincinnati Ben­gals.

Ari­zona Car­di­nals. Los­ing David John­son un­til Thanks­giv­ing or Christ­mas is a crush­ing blow. (17)

Los An­ge­les Rams.

With Aaron Don­ald back, a solid de­fense gets even stronger. (26)

Los An­ge­les Charg­ers. Look­ing to take ad­van­tage of the Dol­phins’ po­ten­tial rust. (25)

San Fran­cisco 49ers. Brian Hoyer fig­ures to be in for a long day vs. Sea­hawks’ D-line. (27)
