This time, the slack is being managed by RB Dion Lewis who has totaled 366 yards and five touchdowns in the Patriots last three games. He has 896 yards on the season and gives New England a strong running game that Tennessee must defend. The Titans are pretty good against the run – fourth in the NFL – as they showed in the win over Kansas City.
One of the lessons we learned killer deal this season is don’t back the underdog early. The market and, more specifically, the public has a tendency to back the better team causing the favorite to be inflated. When you are bucking that trend, it can be more prudent to wait and let the fandom and fervor do its thing. This was never more true than our aforementioned Patriots ticket.
The problem for Washington is that they need those types of wins over the next three weeks to keep their postseason chances alive. With the Giants’ win over Dallas and Tampa Bay on a five-game win streak, the ‘Skins cannot afford a loss in the season’s final three weeks. Washington’s success will lie directly on quarterback Kirk Cousins. The Redskins QB is in the Top 5 in most statistical categories and led Washington in the win over Eagles with two passing touchdowns to give him 23 on the season. The Chiefs blew an opportunity to at least clinch a playoff spot when they fell at home to Tennessee on a last-second field goal. Kansas City led 17-7 before the Titans scored the game’s final 12 points including a Ryan Succop 53-yard game-winning field goal into the wind as time expired.

The points have swelled from 10 to 13.5 in this matchup after the Chicago Bears’ offense continued to struggle in Week 6. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are arguably the best team in the league, but this is a ton of points. The question is whether Justin Fields and the Bears’ offense will produce enough against the Bucs’ beat-up defense to cover even if they’re theoretically not almost two touchdowns worse talent-wise. The premier matchup of the week is an unexpected one in the AFC North. The breakout Cincinnati Bengals are in Baltimore fighting for control of the division. The problem is, the Ravens are back on top with an elite passing game and talented defense.
The Jags held the Texans to just 52 total first-half yards and sacked QB Tom Savage six times forcing him from the game. For the game, the Jacksonville defense gave up just 203 yards and the unit produced four takeaways. The Cardinals are going to have to find a running game if they are to beat the Cowboys. If Arizona can have that kind of success, it will make things much easier for Palmer. The Cardinals were missing four offensive starters in Indianapolis including two offensive linemen, guard Mike Iupati and OT D.J. Humphries.
I’ll post it once props are available for SGPs (held up by Nick Chubb’s questionable tag). Given the Chiefs ceiling, we’re going to lean into this newfound momentum and believe K.C. You name it and best believe The LEGEND is getting it from his connections. The LEGEND operates under the radar like all the old school wiseguys.
