Oakland Raiders vs. Kansas City Chiefs
Four or five weeks ago you would say it was a no brainer to back the Chiefs to win this game. But since their amazing start, they lost to the Giants, Bills and Jets. The Raiders have won the last two on the bounce, perhaps not convincingly but got the job done. This division is crazy with three teams still able to win it. It should be a fierce match, but with the Chiefs losing four games in a row and Raiders winning their last two, I’m siding with the Raiders.
Raiders: 1-6, 7 -12
Minnesota Vikings vs. Carolina Panthers
This looks like a really exciting game. To everyone’s surprise, the Vikings are at the top of their division. This week, they are up against a Panthers team who I expected to do better last week against the Saints but New Orleans proved too much. The Vikings look like Super Bowl contenders now and see getting the win this Sunday.
Vikings: 1-6, 7-12
Dallas Cowboys vs. New York Giants
This is usually an awesome divisional rivalry but not this year. The Giants season has pretty much ended and the Cowboys are not where they want to be, especially with the Eagles taking the division by storm. It also doesn’t help that key players are out of the game – a suspended Elliot for the Cowboys and an injured Beckham Jr for the Giants. Throw in the inevitable sacking this week of Giants head coach McAdoo, the Cowboys should win this comfortably by around 14 pts.
Cowboys: 7-12, 13-18
Philadelphia Eagles vs. LA Rams
This is my ‘Game of the week’. I am expecting TD after TD here. These teams have been a joy to watch. The Eagles have been both offensively and defensively epic despite losing to the ever-consistent Seahawks. The Rams have just been amazing, scoring points for fun. With a young coach this team could be a force to reckon with over the coming seasons. This has the makings of a great game that could seriously go either way.
Eagles: 7-12, 13-18 Rams 7-12, 13-18
