The Bills are so bad, one of their players quit ... at halftime

Premium Picks

Houston Texans at Jacksonville Jaguars, 1 p. Let me remind you what happened the first time these two teams met: Tom Savage was sacked six times in the first half, as the Houston offensive line allowed 10 sacks for the game.

Miami Dolphins at Buffalo Bills, 1 p. The Jets lost last week and will be starting Bryce Petty on Sunday. It took nearly an entire season, but the Jets finally are who we thought they were. The Jets produced just yards of total offense last week. The Saints will win the game, but the Jets are decent defensively. Plus, the Giants are a mess.

The Giants are in their last 10 against the Eagles, but six of those losses were by one possession. This being a divisional road game for the Eagles with their backup quarterback, I foresee the Giants keeping this close. Los Angeles Rams at -2 Seattle Seahawks, 4: The Rams are getting healthy with Robert Woods and Connor Barwin expected back, while Seattle is already banged up and could be without leading tackler Bobby Wagner.

That could open the door for a big day from Todd Gurley after Jacksonville gashed Seattle for rushing yards in its win last week. The Rams are when Gurley gets 20 or fewer touches and when he exceeds that mark. How valuable has Russell Wilson been for the Seahawks this season?

The Rams turned the ball over five times to the Seahawks in their last meeting and still only lost by six. Since , the Patriots are ATS following a loss. That 74 percent cover rate is by far the best mark in the NFL — the Saints are second at The Pats simply are too banged up on defense.

Also, Ben Roethlisberger is this season when throwing the ball 40 or more times. The rest of the league is Tennessee Titans at -2 San Francisco 49ers, 4: So far, so good. The Titans are regressing to the mean.

They have a minus-7 turnover differential in their last four games and Marcus Mariota has looked like trash against some bad opponents, like Arizona, Houston and Indy. The 49ers, on the other hand, seem revitalized under Jimmy Garoppolo. The Falcons are, and Atlanta should be able to exploit a Bucs pass defense allowing 7. Well the Oakland Raiders have shocked a few people so far and we could look up and see them sitting at early in this season.

They are playing a depleted Bears team who sits at and has a chance to go for the first time since It also must be stated that the Bears have seemingly decided to begin their rebuild.

Most notably they traded away DE Jared Allen to Carolina this week, and they also moved a few other players , in order to get draft picks and prepare for the future. I think they will be able to score.

The Bears are giving up a league-high 35 points per game. Also, the Raiders rookie WR Amari Cooper is showing that he will be a force to deal with in this league. He leads all rookies in receptions 20 and is developing a dynamic chemistry with Carr. This could be the next big duo in football. Cincinnati is looking for their first start since and playing at home against the Chiefs, I think they can get it done.
