Kansas City Chiefs (3-1) vs Minnesota Vikings (1-3), Sunday at 4:25 P.M. EST

Prediction: Chiefs 30, Vikings 24

Kansas City should be able to move the ball better this week as they go up against a Minnesota defense that has not been good this season. The Vikings struggled to move the ball well on offense last week, but those errors should be cleaned up this week. The Chiefs will be able to score a lot of points this upcoming week. Kirk Cousins will do his best to drag this team into the game, but that effort won't be enough.

Dallas Cowboys (3-1) vs San Francisco 49ers (4-0), Sunday at 8:20 P.M. EST

Prediction: 49ers 35, Cowboys 27

This is more of a test for Dallas than it is for the 49ers. The Cowboys have dominated plenty of teams leading up to this game, but they have not been able to handle quality teams in the past. That has always been Dak Prescott's and the Cowboys' concern each year. They need to win this game, but the 49ers are rolling right now and should take care of business at home. Expect a close game, but San Francisco will be able to pull ahead late.

Green Bay Packers (2-2) vs Las Vegas Raiders (1-3), Monday at 8:15 P.M. EST

Prediction: Packers 26, Raiders 16

Another disastrous Monday night football matchup here as the Packers head to Vegas to take on the Raiders. Las Vegas has become a popular road destination for most fans of outside NFL teams and that trend will continue here. Green Bay has not been perfect, but they have won most of the games that they should win. That will continue here as the Raiders are struggling to do most things right. Packers stay in playoff contention with a win here.
