Jacksonville Jaguars (2-2) vs Buffalo Bills (3-1), Sunday at 9:30 A.M. EST

Prediction: Bills 26, Jaguars 24

Another game in London and that marks back-to-back contests across the pond for the Jaguars. That should help them as they will be better acclimated to the time zone compared to the Buffalo Bills. Josh Allen is playing well for the Bills right now and he should be able to continue that trend here. It is going to be close but expect the Bills to get their feet under them enough.

Houston Texans (2-2) vs Atlanta Falcons (2-2), Sunday at 1 P.M. EST

Prediction: Texans 27, Falcons 23

Houston seems like the real deal after C.J. Stroud has led a terrific start to his rookie campaign. Expect that passing game to continue here even though their offensive line continues to deal with plenty of injuries. Atlanta is starting to fall off as the Texans are starting to rise. Expect a close game, but Stroud does enough to pull Houston to another win.

Carolina Panthers (0-4) vs Detroit Lions (3-1), Sunday at ! P.M. EST

Prediction: Lions 34, Panthers 21

Carolina is a disaster, and their team has not given the top pick in this past year's draft a chance to make plays. Detroit is now playing the part of the potential NFC North division winner if everything keeps going to plan. The Lions are a team that does have some flaws, but the Panthers are just too bad of a team to win many games this year.

Tennessee Titans (2-2) vs Indianapolis Colts (2-2), Sunday at 1 P.M. EST

Prediction: Titans 29, Colts 28

Which version of the Tennessee Titans will come out to play this week? Will it be the one that struggles to produce points or the one that dominates a game like they did against the Bengals last week? They need to be more consistent and that should happen this week against the Colts no matter if Jonathan Taylor is back in the lineup or not.
