This week, I'm going to say the
Los Angeles Rams will beat the
Baltimore Ravens by 21 points. Is that bold enough? Well, consider this: The
Rams are averaging 24.3 points per game in 2019, while the
Ravens lead the league in scoring with 34.1 points per game. So, I'm essentially saying the
Rams will either hold
Lamar Jackson and Co. to three points OR drop a 50-burger on Baltimore. I rest my case.
Aaron Rodgers has been exceptional at times this season. He's thrown 17 touchdowns against just two picks and has Green Bay sitting at the top of the NFC North at 8-2. But you know what we haven't seen yet this season? That Rodgers magic. You know, the miraculous fourth-quarter comeback or Hail Mary that has Cheeseheads (and haters alike) shaking their heads in disbelief. Well, the wait is over. In a statement win over the
San Francisco 49ers (9-1), Rodgers once again finds the magic and successfully throws a Hail Mary in this one -- either at the end of the first half or regulation.
The No. 1 total defense hosts the No. 1 offense this weekend when the
Dallas Cowboys pay a visit to the
New England Patriots. Bill Belichick's defense has stifled opposing quarterbacks all season long -- with the exception of
Lamar Jackson in Week 9 -- and has yet to allow a 300-yard passing game. In fact, the
Patriots have only allowed 200-plus pass yards in two games (
Week 1 vs. Pittsburgh,
Week 4 vs. Buffalo). That changes when the
Dak Prescott, who's in a contract year, come to town. The young quarterback throws for 300 yards on the
Patriots' stingy defense.
First-round draft pick
Dwayne Haskins has yet to taste victory in his four appearances this season, including starts in the
Redskins' last two games. Haskins has another shot to get in the win column this weekend when Washington hosts a beat-up
Lions team. I don't want to spoil the outcome for you, but ... Haskins wins his first career game as an NFL starting quarterback. Now that's a good reason to celebrate with some pumpkin pie!
We're coming up on the one-year anniversary of when
Derrick Henry earned
a single-game franchise record 238 rushing yards against the
Jacksonville Jaguars. I'm going to double down on Henry this weekend when the
Titans host the Jags. That's right: Henry rushes for another 200 yards against Jacksonville on Sunday.
