New York Giants (1-4) vs Buffalo Bills (3-2), Sunday at 8:20 P.M. EST
Prediction: Bills 27, Giants 14
Another failure in prime time here as this game won't even be close. Brian Daboll's "revenge" game I guess here. maybe he will have a few tricks up his sleeve to slow down Josh Allen after being his offensive coordinator in Buffalo for a while. Even if he has those tricks, the Giants offense is terrible and could be missing a couple of starters in the lineup due to injury.
Dallas Cowboys (3-2) vs LA Chargers (2-2), Monday at 8:15 P.M. EST
Prediction: Cowboys 35, Chargers 30
Now we are getting somewhere here as both of these teams can apply points to the board on offense. Dallas is coming off a humbling loss against San Francisco, but that has become a common thread for the 49ers. This should be a shootout or a blowout, but the Cowboys get the edge here as their defense is far better than LA.
Pittsburgh Steelers get to enjoy their Bye Week
No better way to strut into a bye week than sitting in first place in the AFC North. The Steelers might have taken the most unconvincing route to get there in the standings, but they found a way to win somehow. Better lucky than good some might say, and that applies to Pittsburgh's football team tenfold. They have a lot of things to work on during their week off.
Matt Canada should have never been brought back, but Mike Tomlin continues to show his weakest point as a coach, forming a legit staff around him. Canada is receiving lots of hate, but this offense has a bunch of issues besides him. The Steelers defense is not much better, but they have made enough splash plays in timely moments to forget their struggles. They need to fix things for a shot to make the playoffs.
