Baltimore Ravens -6
Historically Arrowhead stadium is one of the loudest venues in the
NFL, but this year that hasn't helped the Chiefs. The Chiefs are 1-3 on the
season and 0-2 at home and the boo-birds have been chirping Cassel. I like the
Ravens because if the defense can get to Cassel early, which they will, the
game could snowball in favor of Baltimore. For an organization known for their
defense, the Ravens offense has been very impressive. The
perfect storm for Baltimore fans.
Atlanta Falcons -3
When are teams going to start taking the Falcons seriously? Want
to hear something scary... 11-2. That's 11 tds and 2 interceptions for Matt
Ryan. He's led Atlanta to a 4-0 start and, if you ask me, are the strongest
team in the NFC. I know, people always resort to "well what about Green
Bay, Chicago, San Fran, etc" News-flash all you traditionalists, the
Falcons are the most complete team in the NFC and possibly the NFL right now.
And because off all the skeptics out there, they are going to continue to prove
it on Sunday.
Falcons vs. Redskins Over 50.5
Each team has averaged 30 points or more each game this season.
And jump on the RGIII bandwagon gentlemen! He has rejuvenated the Redskins
offense and Mike Shanahan realizes that. The Skins are starting to play a lot
more like Baylor did last year and are putting the ball in RG's hands. And on
the other side, Ryan, Jones, Gonzalez, White and Turner. Plus, how can you not
love these two teams. Should be a fun game to watch! Atlanta's great passing attack going against the Skins terrible Pass Defense and then You've got the Skins who lead the league in rushing yards against Atlanta who has a terrible run defense... enough said.
Chicago Bears -6
The Bears are off to a 3-1 start while the Jaguars, well... yeah.
Blaine Gabbert has yet to evolve into a starting qb and the Jaguars offense is,
well... poor Jacksonville. The Jaguars are averaging 15 points a game and now
face the Bears defense. Meanwhile, the Bears offense have looked stronger than
ever and no longer rely on their defense to win games. The two teams are just
polar opposites. One team is one of the best teams in the league while the
other team is Jacksonville.
