Buffalo Bills (4-2) vs New England Patriots (1-5), Sunday at 1 P.M. EST

Prediction: Bills 31, Patriots 16

New England is in a world of hurt right now and there is no safety in sight. Buffalo enters this contest with a lot of momentum. Two teams entering this game on two trajectories normally does not end well for the lesser team. Expect Mac Jones to continue to struggle against a tough Bills defense. Josh Allen might sputter some against the Patriots defense, but that won't last long.

Washington Commanders (3-3) vs New York Giants (1-5), Sunday at 1 P.M. EST

Prediction: Commanders 21, Giants 17

Washington has been up and down to start their season. Sam Howell has been good thus far but has struggled against tougher opponents. The Giants should be another opportunity for Howell to continue to have a great season as a first-year starter. New York will probably be without a starter or two in this one and that'll directly affect the outcome. Expect the Commanders to win the game in a low-scoring contest.

Atlanta Falcons (3-3) vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers (3-2), Sunday at 1 P.M. EST

Prediction: Buccaneers 26, Falcons 20

Atlanta is better than what people give them credit for even though they are bad on paper. If the Falcons can get a steady run game going then they will stay competitive this year. Tampa has a good defense and should be able to keep on that track here. Baker Mayfield is playing quality ball right now and should be able to take advantage of this Falcons team. It should be a close game but expect the Buccaneers to emerge victorious in a tough divisional game.
