New England Patriots (1-4) vs Las Vegas Raiders (2-3), Sunday at 4:05 P.M. EST
Prediction: Patriots 20, Raiders 19
A lot of different "revenge" scenarios here for the Raiders going up against the New England Patriots. Right now, things are not looking good for New England, but Bill Belichick has an unbelievable record going up against his former proteges when they take a top job elsewhere. That could stop here with how bad the Patriots are playing, but it's hard to pick against Belichick's trend.
Detroit Lions (4-1) vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers (3-1), Sunday at 4:25 P.M. EST
Prediction: Lions 28, Buccaneers 20
Not many expect Tampa Bay to be in the conversation to win their division, but now they seem to be the favorite. They are coming off a bye week and should be well-prepared and rested for this game. The Lions are playing great football and should be able to handle the test that the Bucs will bring with them. It is close, but the Lions get a late touchdown to pull ahead.
Arizona Cardinals (1-4) vs LA Rams (2-3), Sunday at 4:25 P.M. EST
Prediction: Rams 24, Cardinals 15
The Rams are an average team that can make a game tough for a competitive team but also struggle against a lesser opponent at times. In this game against the Cardinals, LA has too many quality targets on offense for Arizona to handle. Expect the Rams to pull ahead early and coast into a victory at home against a division rival.
Philadelphia Eagles (5-0) vs New York Jets (2-3), Sunday at 4:25 P.M. EST
Prediction: Eagles 33, Jets 23
New York is coming off a big win on the road against the Broncos, and good for them. That trend of happiness will be decimated this week when they go up against the Eagles. Philadelphia is still firing on all cylinders and should be able to wipe the Jets out of this game early. A late touchdown by Zach Wilson will make this final score seem closer than it ever was.
