As soon as this game came out, I thought these NFL odds were a little off. Yes, the Chiefs have Office Football Pool Manager looked great, but the Broncos did just beat the New England Patriots. In this specific matchup, it looks like we will have Kyle Allen playing under center for Washington. Washington is coming off a loss to the New York Giants, where they actually had a very good chance of winning. Washington was able to find the end-zone with 34 seconds left to be down only one point.
Given his unwillingness to adapt, we should expect another week of if it works it works if it doesnt keep grinding type of mentality from this coaching staff. For a team that has lost three straight games, that news is a huge boost and lets other offensive players slot back in their more accustomed roles. Teddy Bridgewater slung the ball pretty well in Week 6 but also made a few mistakes — three interceptions in all.
The Broncos rank No. 1 against the pass giving opposing quarterbacks just 183.9 yards per game. Carr will face a fierce pass led by Von Miller and it is highly likely that his stat line will be nowhere near what it was a week ago. While the offense hasn’t been its usual self, the Packers still have an array of weapons to attack defenses with. The injury to Eddie Lacy has hurt the running game and the Packers have tried a number of things to fix it.
The Rams rank 10th in offensive yards and 19th in points scored per game, while the Bears rank 28th in offensive yards and 27th in points scored per game. A road matchup against the Rams is not what the Bears need to get their offense working right and I expect this to be a low-scoring affair. Both of the past two matchups between informative post these teams have finished with under 24 combined points, just over half of the point total for this game. The under in this game is one of my favorite bets of the week and I don’t see the Bears generating enough points on the road to cover the spread, regardless of how their defense should test the Rams. The 49ers earned a much-needed bounce-back win over the Rams last week as Jimmy Garoppolo looked infinitely better than the week prior as he completed 23 of 33 passes for 268 yards and 3 touchdowns. George Kittle finished with 7 catches for 109 yards and a touchdown and Deebo Samuel had 6 catches for 66 yards and a touchdown.
It is the first of two meetings this season between NFC East rivals Philadelphia and Dallas as the teams meet on Sunday night in Week 11. The Eagles are the owners of the NFL’s best record at 8-1 and have won seven straight thanks to the league’s best run defense and second-best scoring offense. The Cowboys enter Sunday night coming off a loss to Atlanta and the loss of their star running back Ezekiel Elliott. The Vikings held the best offense in the NFL to just seven points last week in a 24-7 win over the Los Angeles Rams.
The Seahawks had won four of five games before dropping their last two to the Rams and Chargers (who have a combined record of 16-3). In those two games, QB Russell Wilson threw a total of five touchdown passes and rushed for over 130 yards. He will once again be called upon to make some big plays if Seattle is going to even its record at 5-5. Monday night’s game is in Houston where the Texans have had much success against Tennessee in the past. In fact, the past six times that the two teams have played in Houston, the Texans won all six.
The smallest spread is the 1.5 points the Atlanta Falcons (2-3) are favored against the Miami Dolphins (1-5) on the road. Houston gave up two touchdown passes to Carson Wentz and two TD runs to Jonathan Taylor. The Texans (1-5) were routed 31-3 by the Colts at Indianapolis, losing their fifth straight game. Houston was down just 10-3 at halftime but were outscored 21-0 over the final two quarters. The Cardinals (6-0) built a 20-0 lead in the first half and kept their perfect record intact despite not having coach Kliff Kingsbury or star edge rusher Chandler Jones.
