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.
|New England Patriots at Los Angeles Rams – Thursday 8:20pm|
We expected the Rams to cover and they did. L.A. is just too much football team for a New England team still trying to find their way. In particular, that Rams secondary is just too tough for a New England team to try and beat.
Favorite: Los Angeles Rams by 6
Prediction: Los Angeles Rams 27 – New England Patriots 20
|Kansas City Chiefs at Miami Dolphins – Sunday 1:00pm|
We all know that Patrick Mahomes makes for a good play, he does every week, but it looks like Clyde Edwards-Helaire is the lead runner once healthy and he may be this week. Miami is going to play Kansas City tough, this will not be an easy game for Kansas City to win with good power running from Myles Gaskin.

Prediction: Kansas City Chiefs 27 – Miami Dolphins 24
|Dallas Cowboys at Cincinnati Bengals – Sunday 1:00pm|
Expect Cincinnati to surprise here; it is not outside the realm of possibilities that they win this game outright with a solid rushing performance from Giovani Bernard. Andy Dalton will be fine here too, as will Ezekiel Elliott, it’s a merry-go-round circus trying to predict which Dallas receiver will be the focal point though. Dallas can’t stop the run, yet have way too many quality wide receivers, they really should have traded for some defensive help when they could have.

|Tennessee Titans at Jacksonville Jaguars – Sunday 1:00pm|
You have to like what Mike Glennon has brought to Jacksonville, it’s gone unnoticed, he’s available in something like 98% of fantasy leagues; there are a lot worse quarterbacks in a lot worse situations that are on fantasy rosters. Expect another solid performance from Glennon but it won’t be enough against Tennessee and their suddenly potent offense. There is literally no one on Jacksonville that has the desire to suffer a possible career ending injury trying to bring down Derrick Henry. Do not neglect Corey Davis in this one either, he’s looked sharp this year.

Prediction: Tennessee Titans 30 – Jacksonville Jaguars 23
|Arizona Cardinals at New York Giants – Sunday 1:00pm|
Arizona could really use a win and they’ll get one here against a Giants team that isn’t all that good. Expect Wayne Gallman to run well but for the rest to be a problem. Arizona will feature their ground game and Kenyan Drake while they keep the passing light for Kyler Murray as he continues to rehab from a shoulder injury.

Prediction: Arizona Cardinals 24 – New York Giants 21
