Welcome to Week 4 of the NFL season, it’s been a fantastic one so far. Green Bay and Philadelphia are on a Bye this week, otherwise I might have to pick the Eagles to keep it going on their surprising start. Let’s get to the predictions.
Jacksonville gets in the win column: I have to get this pick right soon, right? The Jags played very well against the Ravens last week but late mistakes sealed their fate. Seeing Robinson finally get involved with the offense was a beautiful thing though. I expect The young Jags to pull out their first W with Bortles only finding Robinson for a couple touchdowns again this week.
The Lions keep the Bears from the win column: Detroit is a frustrating team to watch. Last week they were down 31-3 at one point in the first half and it looked as if all hope was lost. Then in the second half Stafford and the defense both turned it on. Only losing by one score. With the Bears seemingly on their way to a top 3 pick in the draft I am visioning the Lions winning this Sunday. Another BIG game for Stafford and Jones could be in store.
Christine Michael gets shut down, big time: One of the biggest sleepers last week, Michael had a great game against a bad 49ers team. Welcome back to reality, the Jets rush defense is one of the better groups in the league and with a banged up Wilson, the Jets will look to shut down the Seahawks offense. I don’t see him going for any more than 50 yards.
Drew Brees has himself a game: Heading to the team that drafted him, Brees is going to want to put up points in bunches on the Chargers. If Snead is back and healthy than this has a better chance but if he isn’t Thomas, Cooks and company can more than put on a show. Brees will go over 400 yards and score a trio of touchdowns. Give me the Saints to pull out a victory as well.
Vikings defense does it again: This defense is one of the more impressive ones that we have seen in recent history. It seems like every game they are going to get at the quarterback at least 7 times and score a touchdown. Minnesota will hold the Giants to 16 points at most and take another victory. On a side note, Diggs will outperform Beckham and as usual Odell will be a distraction for his teammates.
