10/5 8:30 ET At Seattle -9.5 Detroit

Jeremy’s Picks:

Falcons (-6.5) vs Texans: How can I go against the mighty Falcon offense that just keeps getting better each week. Matty Ice to Julio Jones is deadly and Devonta Freeman is a beast so far. The Texans might have Arian Foster back, but that won’t be enough this week.

Panthers (-3) at Bucs: The 3-0 Panthers have beaten 3 teams with a combined 2 wins, but up next is the 1-2 Bucs who only beat the lowly Saints. We might not find out if the Panthers are actually decent until week 5 in Seattle, but I’m pretty confident Superman Cam will get it done in Tampa.

Bengals (-4) vs Chiefs: The Red Rocket has started the year on fire and the Bungles have taken over the AFC North. The Chiefs looked lost on defense against the Packers, so AJ Green and company should have a field day on sunday. Alex Smith used to be the “safe” QB, but looks to be regressing in KC this year. Jamaal Charles is the only one keeping them in games (Travis Kelce is hot, but not a star).

Packers (-8.5) at 49ers: I didn’t even blink with the big spread for a team on the road and playing on the west coast. Aaron Rodgers and Randle Cobb are unstoppable, and hopefully Lacy will be a little healthier this week. The 49ers are a mess on both sides of the ball and fooled people week 1 by beating the Vikings (everyone’s Cinderella playoff pick, not mine), they will be in the basement of the NFC West for a few years.

Cardinals (-6.5) vs Rams: I’ll say it right now, the Cardinals will be in the NFC Championship game if Carson Palmer stays healthy (big if). They have a monster defense, one of the best special teams in the NFL, and a high powered offense. What else do you need to know? Can you tell I’m on the bandwagon much?? The Rams are tough on D, but I don’t trust their mediocre at best offense to score enough points. Does anyone really scare you there? Cards roll on…

Jose’s Picks:

Indianapolis (-9.5) vs. Jacksonville: Alright, huge spread + me at the bottom of the standings = taking Mr. Caveman himself for the win and cover! I don’t see anyone from JAX secondary making any picks, and that includes both TY Hilton and Andre Johnson making plays!

Carolina (-3) at Tampa Bay: The Buc’s are still figuring it out, but i do see glimpse of what could be a good team. But my money is on Carolina D and bringing the pressure which would make Winston throw just like Kaepernick!

Oakland (-3) at Chicago: I’m on this bandwagon and i’m not coming off… Give me a young receiver with a veteran (who’s apparently making a comeback) and i see TD’s stacked on TD’s. Chicago is hurting, and giving Forte 83 attempts can only do but so much. Grab a Deep Dish slice and sit back CHI-Town, it’s going to be a long game.

Cleveland (+7.5) at San Diego: *UPSET ALERT* – I see this being a RB throw down, and even though SD has the three headed monster i can see them making a couple of turnover that would ultimately make it a closer game than what the spread is leaving to believe…

Minnesota (+6.5) at Denver: Sure the Broncos have amazing players especially on the defensive end. But don’t sleep on a hungry team with arguably the best RB (when healthy) on any field. This match up was originally going to make it to my #UpsetAlert, but fell back the the Orange is the new Brown.

Zac’s Picks:

Carolina (-3) at Tampa Bay: Divisional games on the road are not easy to predict, especially when you have an up and down rookie QB for the Bucs who has found success early on. The Panthers are 3-0 and have played well to start the season.  Don’t take for granted the loss of Luke Kuechly again this week as he sits out another game recovering from an early season concussion.  However Ron Rivera’s defense will be ready to take advantage of their divisional foe.

Oakland (-3) vs Chicago:  This game has “Trap Game” written all over it for Oakland: the Bears are struggling at 0-3, Jay Cutler is questionable with the hamstring, and recent roster shakeups took place this week with trades of Jared Allen and Jon Bostic.  However Oakland is playing confidently after coming off a road win to Cleveland and the maturation of Derek Carr is moving along as expected.  Oakland is favored by Vegas to win a game for the first time in 27 games.  The last time they were favored was in 2013, and they were blown out 49-20 by the Eagles. However this is a different silver and black and one that will come away with the W on Sunday.

New York (+5.5) vs Buffalo: Tyrod Taylor is having an incredible start to not only the season, but to a rejuvenated career after spending time behind Joe Flacco in Baltimore.  However with injuries to LeSean McCoy and Sammy Watkins, Steve Spagnuolo’s defense can focus on continuing the Giants impressive run stuffing abilities as they have demonstrated these first 3 weeks, by stopping Karlos Williams.  The Giants will be without Victor Cruz again this week, however the Giants will keep this closer than 5.5 points.

San Diego (-7.5) vs Cleveland:  Despite the 1-2 start, the Chargers are flying high on offense, averaging over 400 yards a game.  However they have not found a way to effectively score many touchdowns the last two games on the road while visting Cincinnati (19 points) and Minnesota (14 points).  The Browns have not looked good though and Josh McCown is not the long (or short term) answer at QB, which is why I think this game starts close but San Diego eventually runs away with it.

Jacksonville (+9.5) vs Indianapolis: I feel like I’ve picked the Colts to win each week in various pools and they have disappointed and hurt me in every pool.  They have still not impressed me enough to take them to win by 10 points over the Jags.  Don’t let last week’s loss to New England scare you Jags fans- the Colts are NOT the Patriots.  The Colts do not have the secondary and defense to stop teams from scoring and although Jacksonville may not come away with the W, they will keep this closer than most think.
