New York Giants (2-6) vs Washington Commanders (4-6), Sunday at 1 P.M. EST
Prediction: Commanders 21, Giants 13
Both clubs remain in a rut coming into this game without many fixes in sight. The Commanders basically punted on the season after their big moves at the trade deadline. New York is just terrible and will lose far more games than they will win this season. Washington is the better team, and they will be at home. Overall, this might be an ugly matchup that comes down to the wire. The Commanders will take care of business in a low scoring afternoon.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers (4-5) vs San Francisco 49ers (6-3), Sunday at 4:05 P.M. EST
Prediction: 49ers 37, Buccaneers 23
San Francisco looked back to normal last week after a three-game slide before they finally found some oasis during their bye week. Tamp Bay is about average this season, and that seems like it could be enough to push for their division this season. Baker Mayfield will keep this game close, but the 49ers will find a way to pull away in the fourth. The Bucs lack a run game, and that is going to allow San Francisco to attack through the pass rush.
New York Jets (4-5) vs Buffalo Bills (5-5), Sunday at 4:25 P.M. EST
Prediction: Bills 22, Jets 18
Buffalo just fired their offensive coordinator, which is something the Steelers probably should have done weeks ago. Now they move forward with a new play caller and all the pressure on them to claw their way back into the AFC playoff picture, which seems almost impossible. The Jets are a tough team and have fared well against Josh Allen throughout his career. It will be a close game, but Allen finds a way to get down the field to set up a game-winning field goal.
