(Lines are according to Scoresandodds.com)
Detroit Lions +2.5 @ Dallas Cowboys
The Lions offense will have to play fast against the Cowboys front
seven, but overall this is a mismatch. Matthew Stafford shouldn't
have an issue
passing against the Cowboys secondary. Calvin Johnson should have
another big day to already solidify his ProBowl selection. Tony Romo
keep his guys in it for as long as they can keep up, but with the
ferocious pressure coming from Detroits D-Line, led by Suh, Romo will
issues having success. Take the points and savor the 4-0 start Lions fans.
Danny's Prediction: Lions 35 - Cowboys 24
New Orleans Saints -7.5 @ Jacksonville Jaguars
Drew Brees should have a big day against the Jaguars, and I am sure
Sean Payton will have his defense fired up to go against rookie
Blaine Gabbert. Expect the Saints to win the turnover battle and turn
them into points. I expect a double digit win for the road team.
Danny's Prediction: Saints 31 - Jaguars 13
San Francisco 49ers @ Philadelphia Eagles -9
The Eagles have to win this game and they must make a statement to all
of the teams in the league that they are a team to be reckoned with.
Michael Vick is 100% playing and I expect him to put up some big
numbers against a very poor 49ers secondary. The Eagles defense has
job to do and that is to shutdown Frank Gore and the 49ers running
game. Big Eagles victory on Sunday.
Danny's Prediction: Eagles 38 - 49ers 17
Washington Redskins -2.5 @ St. Louis Rams
I really wanted to go with the Rams here, but they have nothing to
offer on offense and I expect Bradford to struggle against the
and pass rush. Turnovers will win this game and I expect the Redskins
to win that battle.
Danny's Prediction: Washington 20 - St. Louis 17
Tennessee Titans @ Cleveland Browns +1
Home team is getting points after a terrific 4th quarter comeback in
the final minute last week against Miami. Colt McCoy is emerging as a
talent behind center and I expect him to have another positive day on
Sunday against the Titans. The Browns will utilize a healthy Peyton
set up some play action passes for McCoy to take shots down the field.
The Browns should be okay keeping Chris Brown in check (as he has
all season), and I think the injury to Kenny Britt will really hurt
the Titans passing game.
Danny's Prediction: Browns 24 - Titans 17
Buffalo Bills @ Cincinnati Bengals +3.5
The Bills are coming off two big time come back wins; first against
the Raiders putting up 35 points in the 2nd half, and second against
the Patriots last
week where they caused Brady to throw 4 interceptions. The emotion
and energy spent in those two games will allow this trap game to come
Not only that, but the Bills have the Eagles coming into town next
week and I bet they are looking past the Bengals. Expect some
trickery and alot of
Cedric Benson from the Bengals offense.
Danny's Prediction: Bengals 24 - Bills 20
Minnesota Vikings -3 @ Kansas City Chiefs
I am going with the public, the Vikings will use the hell out of
Adrian Peterson to get a win on the road in Kansas City. Jared Allen
returns to his old team
and lights it up with 3 sacks. Vikings win their first.
Danny's Prediction: Vikings 27 - Chiefs 17
Carolina Panthers @ Chicago Bears -6.5
Must win game for the Bears, especially at home. The Bears defense
has too much speed and the safeties are too talents to let a very good
quarterback come into Soldier Field and upset the home team. Bears
get a big win and Cutler goes off on the Panthers secondary.
Danny's Prediction: Bears 27 - Panthers 16
Pittsburgh Steelers +3.5 @ Houston Texans
I think Houston wins this game, but I think the Steelers defense will
keep it close enough for Big Ben to bring in some late drama. Overall
are the better team, but the way the Steelers O-Line is playing and
the fire power the Texans have, I see Houston getting a very nice home
front of a packed house. Arian Foster is full go for this game so
expect him to get plenty of touches.
Danny's Prediction: Texans 24 - Steelers 23
Atlanta Falcons -4.5 @ Seattle Seahawks
The Seahawks got a nice win against Arizona last week, and by nice I
only mean that it is a good thing to get it on paper. The Seahawks
Jackson is a backup quarterback and will be exposed this week against
the Falcons defense that is fast and very hungry for a big win. The
Falcons MUST win this game, and Matt Ryan will use Roddy White and
Julio Jones for big plays. Michael "Burner" Turner will be able to
success against the Seahawks run defense since the linebackers and
safeties will have their hands full covering Tony Gonzalez. I think
this is a blowout
Danny's Prediction: Falcons 34 - Seahawks 13
New York Giants -1.5 @ Arizona Cardinals
The Cardinals can win this game, but I expect the Giants pass rush to
put the pressure on Kolb and the secondary to double cover Larry
all game. If the Giants can control the time of possession by using
Jacobs and Bradshaw on the ground, and if the defense puts constant
on Kolb, I think this is a no brainer.
Danny's Prediction: Giants 17 - Cardinals 13
Miami Dolphins @ San Diego Chargers -7
Chad Henne has been playing well, while Philip Rivers has been shaky.
The Chargers need a big home win to boost up their team moral and get
going for the month of October. Rivers and Jackson will hook up for a
big play early and that'll be the game. Henne will have a set back
Tony Sparano's seat will be getting very hot following this game.
Chargers need this more in my opinion.
Danny's Pick: Chargers 27 - Dolphins 16
Denver Broncos @ Green Bay Packers -12.5
That is a lot of points to lay, but the Packers are that good. The
Broncos won't get it done against the Packers defense that I am sure
will want to impress
their home town fans. Rodgers is poised to take his squad back to the
SuperBowl and he shows up big Sunday. Finley and Jennings will have
while Starks will have success on the ground against a bad defense.
Packers big win at home.
Danny's Prediction: Green Bay 41 - Denver 17
New England Patriots -5.5 @ Oakland Raiders
Don't read the papers Oakland players, it will get to your head. The
Patriots could have played last night and I would take them big here.
Let down game for
Oakland and Brady has a big day against a very slim secondary in Oakland.
Danny's Prediction: Patriots 37 - Raiders 24
New York Jets +3.5 @ Baltimore Ravens
The Ravens will win this game, but I think both defenses show up big
and make it a low scoring game. Flacco will out perform Mark Sanchez
and the Ravens
will keep their momentum going.
Danny's Prediction: Ravens 20 - Jets 17
Indianapolis Colts @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers -10
Curtis Painter making the start for the Colts. Enough said. He will
be eaten up by the Bucs defense. Expect Freeman and Blount to have
Danny's Prediction: Buccaneers 24 - Colts 10
