NFLGirlUK previews week 10’s fixtures including a fascinating encounter between the 6-2 Vikings and a Redskins side coming off the back of a huge win in Seattle.
Minnesota Vikings @ Washington Redskins
The Washington Redskins performed well against Seattle last week – thanks to their Defensive line. The Redskins offense still struggles with injuries and this week has a real challenge in facing the Vikings. All in all, the two defences will have a great game and it’ll be a close game but the Vikings will sneak a late victory.
Vikings: 1-6, 7-12, Redskins: 1-6
Green Bay Packers @ Chicago Bears
Usually in a team, when the offense is struggling, defense pick up the slack but it was more than evident in the Green Bay v Lions game, that the Packers just couldn’t get it together. However, this week against the Bears they should – that said, neither has a great offense right now so I expect it to be a low scoring game, and something tells me the Bears take this one.
Packers: 1-6, Bears: 1-6, 7-12
Cincinnati Bengals @ Tennessee Titans
The Bengals are not playing great at the moment and really need to improve on their offense. The fact they are playing back-to-back road games could also be a factor in this. Whereas the Titans have improved well over the past few weeks, especially their defense in the recent game against the Baltimore Ravens. The Titans momentum will continue and they will reap the rewards in this game.
Titans: 1-6, 7-12, 13-18
New Orleans Saints @ Buffalo Bills
The Saints defense is looking incredible right now having come off six straight wins and I’m confident they will get the advantage over the Buffalo offense in this game. All indicators is it will be a seventh straight win for the Saints.
Saints: 1-6, 7-12
Dallas Cowboys @ Atlanta Falcons
The Cowboys have come off three straight wins but it’s a difficult game to call when we don’t know if Ezekiel Elliott is playing. Either way, the Falcons are at home for the first time in a month and you can see they’re playing hard to make playoffs – even if Elliott does play for the Cowboys, I know the Falcons want this more so they’ll find a way to win.
Falcons: 1-6, 7-12
New York Giants @ San Francisco 49ers
Can the Giants bounce back after their blowout loss to the Rams last week? Will the 49ers finally get their first win of the season? Both teams will get points up on the board but sorry San Fran, the opposing team will take the victory yet again.
Giants: 1-6, 7-12
New England Patriots @ Denver Broncos
This type of match would usually excite me but with this dismal performance by the Broncos as of late, it’s difficult to feel any way about it. It’s clear they are struggling with their offense but their defense has relapsed too. New England have just come off a bye so will be nicely rested. There’s no other way to put it, the Pats win this.
