These two teams don't like each other. I'm going to go for Atlanta, seeing as they fixed their redzone woes against the Panthers last Sunday.

Also See:


It was good that they were better in the redzone, but they've still got to find a way to get Julio Jones the ball more. But it was progress at least and they've got a nasty defense.

Los Angeles Chargers @ Los Angeles Rams, NFL Sunday LIVE
Sky Sports Action (407), 9.25pm, Sunday

LOS ANGELES, CA - OCTOBER 08: Head coach Sean McVay of the Los Angeles Rams talks with Jared Goff #16 during the fourth quarter in at 16-10 Seattle Seahawk

I'm a Wade Phillips guy. That Rams defense is loaded, they shut out the Cardinals last week.


My guy Sean McVay as head coach, and Wade on the defensive side of things, I've got to go with the Rams.

New England Patriots @ Detroit Lions, NFL Sunday LIVE
Sky Sports Action (407), 1.10am, Monday

JACKSONVILLE, FL - SEPTEMBER 16: Tom Brady #12 of the New England Patriots takes the field before the Patriots game against the Jacksonville Jaguars at TIAA Bank Field on September 16, 2018 in Jacksonville, Florida.  (Photo by Scott Halleran/Getty Images)

I'm going for a New England win on the road.


Detroit are struggling! Offensively they look totally out of sync.

Pittsburgh Steelers @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Monday Night Football
Sky Sports Action (407), 1am, Tuesday

during a game  at Raymond James Stadium on September 16, 2018 in Tampa, Florida.

I think Tampa Bay's big-play offense is going to scare the living daylights out of the Steelers defense. But, desperation can do wonderful things and I think Pittsburgh gets the win.


I like the Steelers too. But, if they don't win, it could be a bad, bad year in Pittsburgh!

Watch highlights from the Browns' win over the Jets


I'm going to pick Cleveland to get their first win! I think the Browns are there or thereabouts, they've just got to find a way to finish.


Get ready! I think the Browns are at that point now, ready to get a win on the board. Plus, it was a big step back by the Jets last week, losing to the Dolphins.
