Cincinnati Bengals (1-3) vs Arizona Cardinals (1-3), Sunday at 4:05 P.M. EST

Prediction: Bengals 23, Cardinals 19

Things seem bleak right now in Cincinnati as the Bengals are struggling to find answers to correct their course. It should start moving in the right direction here against a lesser opponent in the Arizona Cardinals. The Bengals need a win, and they should get one here despite a close score in the desert. If they fail to win this one, then they might be done for the year. It'll be ugly but they will find a way on the road to win the game.

Philadelphia Eagles (4-0) vs LA Rams (2-2), Sunday at 4:05 P.M. EST

Prediction: Eagles 24, Rams 21

The Eagles have gotten off to a slow start even though they have yet to lose a game heading into week five. They have flirted with losses so far, but Jalen Hurts is starting to return to last season’s form. That should help Philadelphia stay on their winning path. LA has surprised many and will be in most of their games this season. Their offense will keep up for a while, but their defense will not be able to do enough to hold the Eagles to a loss.

New York Jets (1-3) vs Denver Broncos (1-3), Sunday at 4:25 P.M. EST

Prediction: Jets 21, Broncos 10

Someone will have to win this game, and neither of these two probably deserves to. The New York Jets seemed to round a corner with Zach Wilson as their starter last week even though they did end up losing the game in a close contest with the Chiefs. Denver could very well win this game, but they have struggled against quality defenses. The Jets' offense should be able to attack parts of the Broncos' defense and slug their way to the finish line.
