Still, a winning week is a winning week, and well take any we can get. Lets assembled another one today.

1. Broncos at Falcons
The Broncos had a not likely return win against the Chargers last week. Of all, this game is in Atlanta, and second of all, Matt Ryan isnt Justin Herbert. Whats extraordinary to me and one of the reasons Im huge on Atlanta is that the Broncos have actually covered five of their very first 7 games regardless of turning the ball over on 17.6% of their offending possessions.
What took place was the worst outcome possible. Not just did Santos drill the kick to eliminate my under, however the Bears went and lost by three in overtime. The very same deficit they d have lost by had Santos just missed out on the kick in the very first location.

2. Bears at Titans
As the Bears have dealt with injuries up front in the last 4 weeks, theyve balanced 19 points per game. Tackle Bobby Massie was recently put on IR, and this week the Bears put best guard Germain Ifedi, as well as Jason Spriggs– who changed Massie at best tackle– on the reserve/COVID -19 list. Its hard to envision a Bears offense that has already been having a hard time to move the ball regularly will have a much easier time doing so this week with so many injuries up front.
3. Dolphins at Cardinals
I had a great bounceback recently after a couple of down weeks, going 2-1 in my three picks and very almost going 3-0 if it hadnt been for overtime in between the Bears and Saints. I discovered myself because unenvious position plenty of wagerers have discovered themselves in when wagering on video games with a group they appreciate.
The Bears routed 23-20 in the last minutes, and I was on the Under 43.5. Either Santos made the kick, requiring overtime and giving the Bears a chance to win the game, or he misses out on the kick, the Bears lose, and I win my bet.
Miami won Tua Tagovailoas debut against the Rams, 28-17, in an unexpected upset. What that result eclipsed is that the Dolphins won due to the fact that their defense forced four Rams turnovers. The Rams ran 92 plays to Miamis 48. When Miamis offense was on the field, it balanced just 3.0 backyards per play, and Tagovailoa completed only 12 of his 22 passes for 4.2 yards per effort. Oh, and now the Dolphins will lack Myles Gaskin. Oh, and while the Dolphins defense has been fantastic against the pass (it ranked 3rd in DVOA), its the worst rush defense in the NFL (32nd in DVOA). Now a Dolphins group that cant stop the run and has a rookie QB making his first career road start will be facing an Arizona offense that ranks 4th in the NFL in rushing DVOA. Its likewise an Arizona team coming off a bye. Tua might be the future, but Kyler Murray is now. Im backing Kyler and the Cards. The Pick: Cardinals -4.5
The Broncos had an unlikely resurgence win against the Chargers last week. As the Bears have dealt with injuries up front in the last four weeks, theyve averaged 19 points per game. Left tackle Charles Leno is the only initial starter on the Bears OL most likely to start this week. Deal with Bobby Massie was recently put on IR, and this week the Bears put right guard Germain Ifedi, as well as Jason Spriggs– who changed Massie at ideal take on– on the reserve/COVID -19 list. Its difficult to think of a Bears offense that has already been struggling to move the ball consistently will have a much easier time doing so this week with so numerous injuries up front.
