Week three showed us a lot of the good, a lot of the bad, and a lot of the ugly but this week should be even more interesting. So lets get down to business shall we.
Detroit Lions (3-0) at Dallas Cowboys (2-1)
The Lions have beaten up on two teams and have made a huge comeback. The Cowboys are struggling each week to win games and with Tony Romo not 100 percent I don’t think this is going to be good for the Cowboys. The Detroit defense knows how to shut teams down and if Suh or Vandenbosh gets a hold of Romo, well you can kiss his season goodbye. I am going with Detroit and predicting that someone is going to get hurt.
Pittsburgh Steelers (2-1) at Houston Texans (2-1)
Both teams are looking to start building a lead in their division this week but with the way the Steelers have been struggling I think the Houston offense is going to run all over them on the field. The Steelers are getting old while the Texans are young which makes a huge difference in the NFL. The older teams like Pittsburgh and Baltimore are starting to show because they are getting beat by the younger teams like Tennessee and Houston. This game will not be an exception to that rule.
New England Patriots (2-1) at Oakland Raiders (2-1)
This game wouldn’t have been mentioned within the last five years because of how poorly the Raiders have been in the last decade but the Raiders are young and putting up an insane amount of points right along with Buffalo. They say defense wins championships and for New England that’s not good because they don’t have much of a defense anymore. They have allowed 21 or more points in their three games this season. At this point, they lost momentum in the lost to Buffalo and believe Oakland will keep on trucking like they have been.
New York Jets (2-1) at Baltimore Ravens (2-1)
This was one of the best games in recent memory last year when they played each other and this year will be no different. Both teams are on equal ground at this point. They both have won big games but lost ridiculously to teams they shouldn’t have lost to. Both QB’s are struggling but I have to go with the Jets because Sanchez has more weapons behind him then Flacco does, and I think New York’s defense is younger and much better then the Baltimore defense has been this season.
That’s it for week four. As always come on back for my recap next week and predictions for each week. It’s going to be a fun week to watch.
