Go see a movie. Grab dinner with a friend in a restaurant without televisions. Mow the lawn by moonlight. Anything.
Pick: Washington 20, Chicago 17
Wink Martindale against Lamar Jackson. This is going to be fascinating stuff. Baltimore better be ready for every blitz imaginable.
Pick: Baltimore 23, New York 21
The Bengals are the better team, but it’s never easy playing in the Superdome. Of course, for Joe Burrow, the building has fond memories from his LSU days.
Pick: Cincinnati 30, New Orleans 22
This division should be put out to pasture. Just brutal football all the way around. That said, somehow, the Colts might eclipse .500.
Pick: Indianapolis 18, Jacksonville 16
The Vikings are playing (pretty) good football, while the Dolphins are really beat up. Feels like a third straight loss for the Fins.
Pick: Minnesota 31, Miami 20
The Jets can absolutely win this game, largely because the Packers can absolutely find a way to lose this game. Still, it’s at Lambeau, and the Packers need it.
Pick: Green Bay 24, New York 20
This is all about whether you believe Bill Belichick does enough to stymie Jacoby Brissett. I’m riding with Belichick here.
Pick: New England 21, Cleveland 19
Atlanta could be catching the Niners on a good week. San Francisco has to fly cross-country, with a beat-up defense, with the Chiefs on deck. Look for the 49ers to win late.
Pick: San Francisco 27, Atlanta 20
Can the Steelers score a touchdown this week? If the Bucs struggle, it’s a sign of real problems.
Pick: Tampa Bay 24, Pittsburgh 12
