THURSDAY

Philadephia Eagles at Green Bay Packers

Asti: Packers
Hurley: Eagles, they are healthier than the past two weeks
Lippock: Packers
Saunders: Eagles, just because weird stuff happens on Thursdays.

SUNDAY EARLY

Washington Redskins at New York Giants

Asti: Giants, although I wouldn’t be shocked if Danny Dimes gets humbled.
Hurley: Giants, Danny Dimes rolls
Lippock: Redskins
Saunders: Giants? I guess.

San Diego Chargers at Miami Dolphins

Asti: Chargers. There’s no reason for anyone to ever pick the Dolphins.
Hurley: Chargers
Lippock: Chargers
Saunders: Chargers. Why would anyone pick the Dolphins?

Oakland Raiders at Indianapolis Colts

Asti: Colts
Hurley: Colts in a close one
Lippock:Colts
Saunders: Raiders, but I could see this going either way. Not a believer of either team.

Carolina Panthers at Houston Texans

Asti: Texans, granted Kyle Allen is actually a nice boost for Carolina.
Hurley: Panthers, that offense looked better with Kyle Allen
Lippock: Texans
Saunders: Texans

Kansas City Chiefs at Detroit Lions

Asti: Chiefs
Hurley: Chiefs
Lippock: Chiefs
Saunders: Chiefs

Cleveland Browns at Baltimore Ravens

Asti: Ravens
Hurley: Ravens roll as the Browns still try to find themselves
Lippock:  The Browns will play the Ravens tough and this will be closer than some expect. The Ravens have one of the best run offenses and defenses, while the Browns are middle of the pack on both. The Ravens ability to establish the run game and make the Browns’ offense one-dimensional should create turnovers by Baker Mayfield that will be the difference in this game.

Baltimore 30, Cleveland 16
Saunders: Ravens

New England Patriots at Buffalo Bills

Asti:Patriots. Death, taxes and the Patriots beating the Bills.
Hurley: Patriots defense is too much for a young QB
Lippock: Patriots
Saunders: Patriots

SUNDAY AFTERNOON

Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Los Angeles Rams

Asti: Rams
Hurley: Rams
Lippock: Rams
Saunders: Rams

Seattle Seahawks at Arizona Cardinals

Asti: Seahawks
Hurley: Seahawks
Lippock: Seahawks
Saunders: Seahawks

Draft Kings Sign Up Bonus!

Minnesota Vikings at Chicago Bears

Asti: Vikings
Hurley: Vikings, they have a better offense in a game with two great defenses.
Lippock: Vikings
Saunders:  Vikings, in a game that might not reach double digits. Both strong defenses, good running games, miserable quarterbacks.

Jacksonville Jaguars at Denver Broncos

Asti: Broncos. Will Uncle Rico be at this game to cheer on Garnder Minshew?
Hurley: Broncos, Vic Fangio is coaching for his job four games in. He gets one at home.
Lippock: Jaguars
Saunders: Jaguars. This is now a Garnder Minshew fan account.

SUNDAY NIGHT

Dallas Cowboys at New Orleans Saints

Asti: Cowboys
Hurley: Cowboys, The Kellen Moore offense in the Super Dome will be fun to watch
Lippock: Cowboys
Saunders: Saints. Seriously underrated them last week. Won’t make that mistake again.

MONDAY NIGHT

Cincinnati Bengals at Pittsburgh Steelers

Asti: Steelers. As bad as it’s been for the Steelers, it’s been even worse for the Bengals. Pittsburgh has more talent and Rudolph appeared more comfortable as the game went on in San Francisco.

Steelers 26, Bengals 13

Hurley: This is a game the defense needs to win. With a poor offensive line and a new offensive scheme, if this young up-and-coming group cannot step up on a national stage at home against a division rival that they have typically owned, it is time to start questioning who is running the defense. The offense finds enough life in a sloppy Monday Night win highlighted by a rejuvenated defense.

Steelers 20, Bengals 17

Lippock:  In this battle of the basement, the Steelers and Bengals represent 2 of the bottom 6 defenses in terms of points allowed and yards allowed per game. Not to be outdone, both offenses are in the bottom 8 in points per game as well. The difference? I see more upside in Pittsburgh – with the arrival of Minkah Fitzpatrick and the development of the young QB and WR’s on offense, there’s a hope and expectation of bigger and better things. I see just enough of that potential breaking through to give the Steelers their first win of the season.

Steelers 24, Bengals 16

Saunders: A week on film will help get Randy Fichtner and Mason Rudolph in sync. The defense has yet to put together a complete game, but keeps getting closer. Finally, the Steelers just don’t lose to the Bengals at home on Monday night football.

Steelers 23, Bengals 10
