Atlanta Falcons to beat Carolina Panthers – 4/5
Despite a miserable 2-5 record, the Falcons are still in the top tier of the league in net yards per play.
On paper, they outmatch Carolina in a lot of facets of the game.
The Falcons have the weapons on offence to scheme everything away from the Panthers’ Luke Kuechly and with no Kelvin Benjamin now for Carolina, Atlanta should be able to load the box and take away the run to come out with the ‘W’.
Dallas Cowboys to score a win against Kansas City Chiefs – 8/11
Ezekiel Elliott is now available this week for the Cowboys, but Alfred Morris and Rod Smith would have picked up the slack if his was suspended anyway, behind that star offensive line.
Denver averaged 5+ yards a carry against this KC defence, who now have Justin Houston and Dee Ford on limited practice this week.
We expect the Cowboys to have a lot of success on the ground and use a strong play action gameplan to take the win in Jerry World.
Arizona Cardinals (-2.5) points v San Francisco 49ers – 11/10
CJ Beathard has looked horribly out of his depth at the beginning of his NFL career. His arm strength is very poor and his O line has not helped him one bit.
Now he has Jimmy Garoppolo breathing down his neck for his place on the team, it’s a really tough spot to be in and honestly feels like a no-win scenario for the rookie.
San Fran are in the bottom five in rush defence and will really struggle in this matchup. Adrian Peterson should thrive coming off the bye and Arizona won’t need much from Drew Stanton to get a win in an empty stadium in Santa Clara.
