How to read the table: The table shows how a team will do Passing and Rushing in the upcoming week of the NFL. Red is HOT, Yellow is WARM, White is NORMAL, Light Blue is COLD and Dark Blue is FREEZING COLD. Play players from teams that are Red and Yellow, avoid players from teams that are Light or Dark Blue and expect average days from teams that are White.

All times are Eastern

Los Angeles Rams at Green Bay Packers – Saturday 4:35pm
 This is a very dangerous game for Green Bay as the Rams defensively shine against the pass. If the Rams can score well in this game on offense, it becomes a very challenging game for Green Bay to win. However, the NFL is geared around offense and one of the best offenses in football this year has been Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers.

Baltimore Ravens at Buffalo Bills – Saturday 8:15pm
Baltimore will play hard in this game. They have a glaring advantage when they run the ball but if they need to throw with Lamar Jackson, that will be a problem. This game comes down to simply, how much damage Baltimore can do on the ground contrasted with how much damage Buffalo can do in the air and in the NFL, it’s the passing game that can put up points in a hurry if needed.

Cleveland Browns at Kansas City Chiefs – Sunday 3:05pm
Cleveland will keep this game close. The lines makers don’t think so, but we all know that the Browns are running well right now, in particular with their terrific rushing game. It’s what will help to keep the score a bit closer as Cleveland will be able to keep Patrick Mahomes on the sideline where he can’t hurt them. In the end though, when Kansas City needs a final drive to go ahead, they’ll be able to deliver in the closing minutes of the game.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers at New Orleans Saints – Sunday 6:40pm
This will be a slug-fest between two heavy weights. Tom Brady will shine and while Drew Brees won’t be quite as effective, he’ll still have plenty of juice to keep the Saints offense moving. Where this game is won and lost will be in one simple area, when Tampa Bay tries to run the ball as the New Orleans run stop defense is going to be at their best and that one fact will be the biggest difference maker in the final outcome of this game.
