NFL WEEK 9 PREDICTIONS

 

 

[email protected]
The Packers and 49ers start the week off with a rematch of last year’s NFC Championship game. Green Bay’s Achilles heel – its defense – gave up over 160 yards rushing to Minnesota’s Dalvin Cook last week in an upset loss to the Vikings. The Niners lost to the Seahawks and winning the NFC West doesn’t look good for San Francisco. The 49ers are just 1-3 at home this year and both Jimmy Garoppolo and George Kittle are questionable. Green Bay needs a win to keep a lock on the NFC North… GREEN BAY 24, SAN FRANCISCO 20

The Broncos beat the Chargers last week on a last-play TD pass from Drew Lock to rookie WR K.J. Hamler. Denver has now won three of their last four games. It’s not that big of a deal though as the Chargers and Patriots have just two wins each and the Jets are winless. Those are the Broncos’ last three wins. Atlanta isn’t much better, but they are at home and are coming off a win over Carolina last week… ATLANTA 31, DENVER 24

The Chiefs are taking care of business. They pounded an outmatched Jets team last week and now look to do the same to Carolina. Will Christian McCaffrey return? That’s the million dollar question, but it won’t make much of a difference. The Chiefs are a better football team in every phase of the game. The offense averages nearly 32 points a game and the defense is in the top-5 giving up just 19 a game… KANSAS CITY 33, CAROLINA 17

With the Vikings coming off a surprising win over Green Bay, this NFC North Division matchup suddenly becomes more interesting. The Vikings, who have won the last five straight against Detroit, can crawl out of last place in the NFC North with another win over the Lions on Sunday. Minnesota relied on RB Dalvin Cook and his 163 yards and four touchdowns to beat Green Bay. At home, look for them to dominate the Lions as usual… MINNESOTA 31, DETROIT 24

The Week 9 pillow fight features the hapless Giants against the just-as-futile Washington Football Team. The Giants have one win this season. It was a one-point victory over Washington. New York has actually won the last four games in this series. Washington has just two wins and they are against Dallas (2-6) and Philadelphia (3-4-1). This could be ugly. Give the edge to the home team… WASHINGTON 20, NY GIANTS 19

Who would have thought the second Texans-Jags matchup of the year would be to get out of last place in the AFC South? The Jags beat Indianapolis in their season opener. They haven’t won since. Houston’s only win was in the first game against Jacksonville. Both teams are awful on defense ranking 30th and 31st in scoring defense. Houston has more playmakers on offense… HOUSTON 31, JACKSONVILLE 28

 

[email protected]
The Raiders came through with a big win over Cleveland last week. The Chargers lost to Denver on the final play of the game. L.A. has won just once since winning its season opener and that victory is over 1-6 Jacksonville. After that tough loss last week, the Chargers fall again… LAS VEGAS 30, L.A. CHARGERS 23

 

[email protected]
A Steelers-Cowboys matchup used to be a big deal. Not in 2020. The Steelers are the last remaining unbeaten in the NFL at 7-0. The Cowboys are simply awful and are getting worse. Pittsburgh has to be careful, but they are just better in every aspect of the game… PITTSBURGH 27, DALLAS 20

 

[email protected]
The long-awaited debut of QB Tua Tagovailoa finally took place last week. The rookie won his debut over the L.A. Rams. Now, the Dolphins head to Arizona, which features another dual-threat quarterback in last year’s Rookie of the Year Kyler Murray. The Cardinals are coming off a bye and since 2003 are exactly 9-9 in games after a week off. This is the time they go over .500… ARIZONA 38, MIAMI 30

 

[email protected]
The Bucs lead the NFC South, but the Saints still have a shot at winning the division. That makes this game huge. The Saints have won have won four straight, including each of the last three by exactly three points. New Orleans won the first matchup of the season at home. This time, Tom Brady is at home and the division title is on the line… TAMPA BAY 28, NEW ORLEANS 27

[email protected]
The Patriots have owned the Jets winning the last eight straight. Now, New England has lost four in a row for the first time in a long time. Still, the Jets just aren’t very good. They are near the bottom of every offensive statistical category and the defense gives up almost 30 points a game. Struggling or not, New England wins this Monday night battle… NEW ENGLAND 24, NY JETS 10

2018/19 week 9 predictions:

 

San Francisco 49ers @ Arizona Cardinals
The 49ers are hot. They won their seventh straight last week, 51-13 over Carolina. San Francisco can run the ball – they had 232 yards on the ground last week – and play great defense (they sacked Carolina QB Kyle Allen seven times). The Cardinals ran into the Saints last week but can’t be overlooked. QB Kyler Murray is dynamic, but not dynamic enough for the 49ers defense… San Francisco 34, Arizona 17

 

Houston Texans @ Jacksonville Jaguars
It’s a huge AFC South matchup as the 5-3 Texans take on the 4-4 Jaguars. Jacksonville battled Houston in Week 2 but lost 13-12. Home field could be an advantage especially for QB Gardner Minshew who had another strong performance last week (22-of-34, 279 yards, 3 TDs). Houston’s Deshaun Watson had a big game last week too (27-of-39, 279 yards, 3 TDs). Houston won both games last year and has won nine of the last 11 in the series. That gives them the advantage… Houston 27, Jacksonville 24

 

Washington Redskins @ Buffalo Bills
The Bills took one on the chin last week losing at home to the Eagles. Now 5-2, Buffalo faces one of the worst teams in the NFL in Washington. The Redskins can’t score – 12.4 points per game (30th) – and can’t play defense – 26th in the total defense. Buffalo will be looking for revenge and is playing at home. The Bills have won six of the last seven in the series with Washington dating back to 1993… Buffalo 23, Washington 10

 

Minnesota Vikings @ Kansas City Chiefs
Without Patrick Mahomes, the Chiefs are a different football team. They did put up a fight last week in a loss to the Packers, but Aaron Rodgers was no match for the KC defense. The Vikings Kirk Cousins has been hot and RB Dalvin Cook leads the league in rushing. Matt Moore gives the Chiefs a chance, but KC is just 1-3 at home this year… Minnesota 30, Kansas City 28

 

New York Jets @ Miami Dolphins
Get out the pillows. The 1-6 Jets take on the equally abysmal Dolphins in the Pillow Fight of the Week. The Jets and Dolphins are statistically the two worst offensive teams in the NFL. The Jets average 11.1 points per game and Miami scores 10.5. Something has to give. The Dolphins give up 35.2 points per game. That’s the difference… NY Jets 17, Miami 10

 

Chicago Bears @ Philadelphia Eagles
It’s hard to believe, but the Chicago Bears are now in last place in the NFC North. A 17-16 loss to the Chargers last week leaves Matt Nagy’s team 3-4. Now, Chicago must go to Philadelphia and beat an Eagles team that destroyed Buffalo (5-2) in Buffalo last week. It’s a tough stretch for the Eagles who play New England in two weeks and Seattle the week after. It’s a must-win at home… Philadelphia 27, Chicago 24

Tampa Bay Bucs @ Seattle Seahawks
Tampa Bay QB Jameis Winston is a turnover machine. He had four more last week as the Bucs lost 27-23 to Tennessee. The Seahawks are 6-2 after beating Atlanta last week. Playing at CenturyLink Field is difficult for anyone even though Seattle has uncharacteristically lost two home games this season. Seahawks QB Russell Wilson is having an MVP-worthy season. Tampa Bay has dropped three straight… Seattle 28, Tampa Bay 17

 

Clevelan Browns @ Denver Broncos
The Browns were back to their normal selves last week in a loss to the Patriots. In one three-play sequence, Cleveland managed to fumble the ball twice and toss an ugly interception. All the offseason hype has led to a 2-5 record, which is similar to Denver’s 2-6 mark. The Broncos just can’t seem to figure out how to score. They average just 15.6 points per game. Still, it’s hard to see them losing to the Browns… Denver 17, Cleveland 15

 

Green Bay Packers @ Los Angeles Chargers
Can anyone stop Aaron Rodgers and the Packers? Rodgers was on fire once again last week with 305 passing yards and three touchdowns in a big win over Kansas City. The Chargers managed to pull out a win last week when Chicago missed a last-second field goal. The Chargers have some issues, but DE Joey Bosa could give Rodgers some headaches. Bosa had two sacks against the Bears. Green Bay is simply better… Green Bay 33, LA Chargers 27

 

New England Patriots @ Baltimore Ravens
The Ravens had last week off to prepare for the Patriots, who just toyed with the Browns last week. The Patriots defense will have its hands full trying to slow down Lamar Jackson, but leave it to Bill Belichick to figure out how to do it. The 5-2 Ravens will be at home and will have to have success with their NFL-leading running attack. Baltimore averages 204.1 yards rushing per game. The Patriots only allow 85.3. The Ravens at home points to an upset, but somehow the Patriots find a way… New England 29, Baltimore 28

 

Dallas Cowboys @ New York Giants
The Cowboys had a week off to prepare for the second half of the season. They face NFC East rival the Giants first. New York shows flashes, but the Giants are just not consistent enough. Rookie QB Daniel Jones is still learning. RB Saquon Barkley is back and that should energize the offense, but the Cowboys defense and QB Dak Prescott are looking to put away the competition in the division. Dallas beat the Eagles 37-10 two weeks ago. The Cowboys need a win before facing Minnesota the following week… Dallas 35, NY Giants 20
