The Washington Redskins let us down last week with a terrible outing against Atlanta, so let’s take a look at four games this Sunday.
Detroit Lions (3-5) at Chicago Bears (5-3) – The Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde Lions are at Chicago where the Bears look playoff bound. Chicago QB Mitch Trubisky has been improving every game and they’re at home. Bears by a TD. New Orleans Saints (7-1) at Cincinnati Bengals (5-3) – My buddy, Tom Mullally, has convinced me about his Saints and he’s right. New Orleans has an explosive passing attack with Drew Brees and company and they’re meeting the Bengals, which has the thirdworst pass defence in the NFL. I can see a Saints rout. Miami Dolphins (5-4) at Green Bay Packers (3-4-1) – The Fish coming North in November is not a wise bet. Packers need this game in a big way and Rodgers gets the job done. Dallas Cowboys (3-5) at Philadelphia Eagles (4-4) – The Cowboys were awful in losing to Tennessee, especially coming of a bye week, and now they meet an Eagles club that’s getting healthy. As well, the Eagles just traded for multi-purpose speed receiver Golden Tate and I expect he and QB Carson Wentz to click right off the bat. The Cowboys faithful want head coach Jason Garrett fired, and it could happen after another Dallas loss. New England, LA Rams and LA Chargers all have soft games, so no major upsets this week.
