1. Miami Dolphins (-9.5) vs. Cle – The Dolphins favored by nearly 10 points is difficult to fathom on most Sunday’s. But this Sunday is different. The lowly, QB challenged Browns head to South Beach and will be starting a rookie QB after RGIII and Josh McCown were injured. That doesn’t bode well for the Browns. Expect Miami to roll in their home opener and easily cover the point spread.
Pittsburgh Steelers (-3.5) vs. Phi – QB Carson Wentz has been poised, tough and accurate thus far. Everything Philadelphia hoped he would be. But that’s come against two awful teams. This week they get the Steelers, who bring a tough defense into town to match their high powered offense.
Minnesota Vikings (+7) vs. Car – Minnesota comes in banged up offensively, after losing their LT Matt Kalil and RB Adrian Peterson following Week 2. Kalil will be tough to replace, but they can soften the loss of Peterson with their backups. Minnesota is built on defense and will be in this throughout. Expect Carolina to win, but not by a TD.
Cincinnati Bengals (-3.5) vs. Den – it’s difficult seeing the Broncos getting much of anything done by way of offense this week. Cincinnati is a tough place to play. Expect a low scoring game which the Bengals win by a TD.
Rounding Things Out
Arizona Cardinals (-4) vs. Buf – The implosion of Rex Ryan and his Bills will enter its 3rd week against the Cardinals. Most West Coast teams don’t like the 1pm EST start time, but it won’t matter in this one.
New York Giants (-4.5) vs. Was – Kirk Cousins seat will be very hot after this contest.
New York Jets (+3) vs. KC – Kansas City’s defense is not what it was with Justin Houston out. Expect a pretty even game on Sunday, and for the Jets to pull it out in the end.
Den vs Cin (UNDER 41) - Both defenses will rule the day in this one.
