Green Bay Packers (PK) @ San Francisco 49ers Thursday, November 5, 8:20 PM ET
Both the Packers and 49ers will be looking to bounce back after losing on Sunday to division rivals. Green Bay will also look to avenge the 2019 losses to the 49ers after being outscored 74-28 in the regular season and playoffs. The Packers' luck started to run out on Sunday as Dalvin Cook ran all over the Green Bay defense. Despite playing better in recent weeks, San Francisco had no answer for Russell Wilson as the quarterback threw four touchdown passes on Sunday. The 49ers have been better running the football this season, which they will want to do after seeing what the Vikings did to the Packers on Sunday.
Chicago Bears @ Tennessee Titans (-6.5) Sunday, November 8, 1:00 PM ET
Chicago heads to Tennessee for their Sunday matchup, as it will feature another game with two teams coming off losses. The Bears lost twice last week with the Rams on Monday night and then the Saints on Sunday. After starting 5-1 this season, they are quickly sputtering as they are now 5-3. The Titans were embarrassed in Cincinnati this week and have also lost two in a row. Both teams will be looking to stop the bleeding in what should be an important matchup for playoff seeding this season. Derrick Henry should be able to run effectively against a Bears defense that has struggled against the run.
Detroit Lions @ Minnesota Vikings (-1.5) Sunday, November 8, 1:00 PM ET
Detroit and Minnesota square off in an NFC North showdown. The Vikings picked up a huge win over Green Bay on Sunday while the Lions fell big to the Colts. Minnesota essentially kept its season alive with their win over the Packers as they now sit at 2-5 on the season. Detroit will do everything possible this Sunday to remain out of last place in the NFC North. Dalvin Cook went off against the Packers run defense and should do so again this Sunday against Detroit. The Lions run defense is on a similar talent level as the Packers, so this could be another big week with the Vikings star running back finally healthy. Sunday, November 8, 1:00 PM ET
Two weeks ago, we saw the Giants and Football Team square off in New York with the Giants taking Game 1. Now, two weeks later, Washington gets to host and, for a chance, the knock off New York in its second meeting. They will also have a slight edge with the Giants playing on Monday night. The limited rest, along with traveling the following week, could affect the Giants for this matchup. This could be a defensive matchup with both defenses in the top-20 of efficiency. Whichever defense makes the most plays could be the one that comes out on top this Sunday.
Seattle Seahawks (-2) @ Buffalo Bills Sunday, November 8, 1:00 PM ET
After the Seahawks and Bills knocked off division rival, they will be taking on each other in Buffalo this week. Seattle continues to dominate teams with its offense thanks to Russell Wilson looking for his first MVP. However, the Bills have their own MVP with Josh Allen at quarterback. This should be a high scoring affair in Buffalo as the Seahawks and Bills have two high flying offenses while both defenses rank outside the top-20. If you like offense, this might be a game where you sprinkle some on the over that currently sits at 53.5 points.
Baltimore Ravens (-4) @ Indianapolis Colts Sunday, November 8, 1:00 PM ET
Baltimore couldn't complete the comeback against the Steelers this week while the Colts dominated Detroit on the road. Despite the Ravens taking over their games against Pittsburgh, they still could not do enough to win. Now, they have to go to Indianapolis to face a Colts team looking to stay neck and neck with the Titans on top of the AFC South. They will also have to do it without All-Pro left tackle Ronnie Stanley who is now out for the year. The Colts defense has been one of the best in the NFL and should give Baltimore a hard time on Sunday.
Carolina Panthers @ Kansas City Chiefs (-10) Sunday, November 8, 1:00 PM ET
After facing the Falcons on Thursday night, the Carolina Panthers will head to Kansas City to take on the 7-1 Chiefs. Kansas City has been firing on all cylinders this season and will be looking to keep things going again this week with the Panthers in town. This could be a high scoring affair with both teams having offense ranks in the top-10 in offensive efficiency. This year, the Chiefs defense has been pretty good, and Carolina has struggled to stop teams as what we saw on Thursday against Atlanta.
Houston Texans (-6.5) @ Jacksonville Jaguars Sunday, November 8, 1:00 PM ET
After having the week off, the Texans and Jaguars will square off in Jacksonville for an AFC South showdown. Both teams are currently sitting at 1-6 on the season and tied for last place in the division. Someone will get out of the basement this Sunday. There is not much hope for either team to make the playoffs in 2020. Even with a win on Sunday, they will most likely have to win out or win seven of their last eight games to have a shot at the playoffs. It could be beneficial for both sides to play younger players to see what they have from a talent perspective and get ready for 2021.
Denver Broncos @ Atlanta Falcons (-3.5) Sunday, November 8, 1:00 PM ET
Denver will head to Atlanta this Sunday to take on the Falcons. The Broncos are coming off an incredible come from behind win against the Chargers while the Falcons beat Carolina last Thursday. Now, Atlanta will be hosting a Broncos team feeling high and mighty after a huge win. The Falcons have also been known to blow late-game leads this season, and Denver could find themselves down in the fourth quarter, despite not being out of it. Maybe this Sunday, we see more Drew Lock action take place.
Las Vegas Raiders @ Las Angeles Chargers (-2.5) Sunday, November 8, 4:05 PM ET
Las Vegas head to Las Angeles this Sunday for a matchup at SoFi Stadium. The Raiders went into Cleveland and won an impressive matchup over the Browns. Las Vegas and Cleveland had to suffer in 30-mph winds as weather dictated how the game played out. The weather wasn't a problem in Denver on Sunday, but the Chargers could have used some help with the late-game heroics Drew Lock pulled off. After the Chargers' live spread was -20.5, Denver came roaring back to beat Los Angeles outright. Something about Anthony Lynn blowing leads late in the game gives the Chargers a very Falcons-like vibe to them.
Pittsburgh Steelers @ Dallas Cowboys (No Line) Sunday, November 8, 4:25 PM ET
America's Game of the Week has a matchup between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Dallas Cowboys. Although the matchup is not as exciting as expected a few weeks ago, this could be an interesting spot for both teams. Pittsburgh will continue with its undefeated season while the Cowboys season hangs with Ben DiNucci at quarterback. The Steelers are coming off a huge win over the Ravens while the Cowboys fell to the Eagles on the road. Dallas will need to figure out how to move the football with DiNucci at quarterback as the team did not score a touchdown in their Sunday night matchup. Now, they face a Steelers defense that is much better than the Eagles.
Miami Dolphins @ Arizona Cardinals (-5) Sunday, November 8, 4:25 PM ET
After Tua Tagovailoa picked up his first career win, the Dolphins will now head to Arizona to take on the Cardinals Sunday afternoon. Arizona sits at 5-2 on the season and will look to stay on pace with the Seahawks. Despite Miami's win, they were outgained in yards against the Rams. A few costly turnovers made the difference in their matchup. This could be a good buy-low spot on the Cardinals as the line is dropping from the open after everyone saw what the Dolphins did on Sunday. After having the week off, the Cardinals should be rested and ready to go this week.
New Orleans Saints @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-4) Sunday, November 8, 8:20 PM ET
After squaring off the first game of the season, the Saints and Buccaneers will face each other on Sunday night. This will be a great matchup as both teams compete for first place in the NFC South. New Orleans took the first game at home but will have to win on the road to take full control of the division. However, Tom Brady does not look to be slowing down this season and will most likely have one of his best performances on Sunday night. New Orleans has also won four in a row, and Tampa Bay will try to make it three in a row after playing the Giants on Monday night.
New England Patriots (-7) @ New York Jets Monday, November 9, 8:015 PM ET
The Monday night matchup will have two sub-.500 teams squaring off. The Jets are now 0-8 on the season after losing to Kansas City, and the Patriots are...2-5? Yes, New England has lost four in a row and cannot get anything going this season. Both sides of the ball are struggling, and Bill Belichick does not know how he will turn this team around. The Patriots will need a miracle, but maybe facing the Jets on Sunday night is what the doctor ordered for the Patriots to get its swagger back.
