Nothing like a rash of injuries to the QB position to make things in the NFL more interesting. With the Saints, the Steelers, the Jets, the Giants and possibly the Panthers all starting brand new QB’s this week, there’s a ton of uncertainty this week. Should be interesting.
Tennessee Titans at Jacksonville Jaguars (+1.5, 39)
Denver Broncos at Green Bay Packers (-8, 42.5)
Detroit Lions at Philadelphia Eagles (-6.5, 46.5)
Baltimore Ravens at Kansas City Chiefs (-6.5, 54.5)
Cincinnati Bengals at Buffalo Bills (-6, 44)
Atlanta Falcons at Indianapolis Colts (-2, 47)
Oakland Raiders at Minnesota Vikings (-8, 43.5)
New York Jets at New England Patriots (-23, 43.5)
Miami Dolphins at Dallas Cowboys (-21.5, 47)
New York Giants at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-6.5, 48)
Carolina Panthers at Arizona Cardinals (+2.5, 46.5)
New Orleans Saints at Seattle Seahawks (-4, 44.5)
Houston Texans at Los Angeles Chargers (-3, 47.5)
Pittsburgh Steelers at San Francisco 49ers (-6.5, 43.5)
Los Angeles Rams at Cleveland Browns (+3, 49)
Chicago Bears at Washington Professional Football Team (+4, 41.5)
The Ravens v. Chiefs game looks like the most interesting to watch. The Ravens D is top 5 in points allowed, and the Chiefs’ offense is running on all cylinders, even without Tyreek Hill. Add in Lamar Jackson’s blistering start to the season, and this game should be a blast to watch.
Of the noob QBs, I’m most intrigued by Mason Rudolph, who I liked coming out of college, and Daniel Jones, who I hated coming out of college. I was hoping to get a look at Will Grier too, but it appears Kyle Allen will get the start if Cam can’t go.
The Browns Rams game might be fun too. Seeing Myles Garrett and Aaron Donald play well is always interesting, and I’m wondering if both Goff and Mayfield were prematurely hailed as part of the next great young QB group.
Finally, I’ll likely watch the Monday night game, but I doubt I’ll stick around long. It might be intriguing to see just how much Nagy will have to simplify his offense for Trubisky and just how much an awakening Case Keenum will get playing a very, very good defense. But in reality, I’ll probably fire up the PS4 and maybe buy Observer to play instead of watching the tedium of the Bears and Washington’s tepid offenses (Take the under).
What are you all looking forward to? More misery in Miami? Budding Belief in Buffalo? More eMotions for MinshewMania?
