|Cincinnati Bengals at Cleveland Browns – Thursday 8:20pm|
Decent call here, though we expected more out of Joe Mixon.

Prediction: Cleveland Browns 27 – Cincinnati Bengals 20
|Minnesota Vikings at Indianapolis Colts – Sunday 1:00pm|
The way to beat the Colts is by throwing the ball to Adam Thielen relentlessly.. we’ll see if Minnesota listens. Indianapolis on the flip-side, would be well served getting Jonathan Taylor and Nyheim Hines involved early in this one.

|Buffalo Bills at Miami Dolphins – Sunday 1:00pm|
Look, Miami looked horrible against New England but they have a lot of new pieces and it will take time for them to come together. They were also sorely missing DeVante Parker last week, Miami needs a receiver that defenses have to respect to help open up other parts of their offense. Buffalo will be fine here, they’ll run the ball well but Miami can surprise, and they will here.

Prediction: Miami Dolphins 27 – Buffalo Bills 20
|San Francisco 49ers at New York Jets – Sunday 1:00pm|
It’s just hard to see how the Jets have a chance in this one, particularly with all their injuries to their front line players. Expect New York to throw it a ton, because they have to, and for Breshad Perriman to see a lot of targets since he’s.. well.. the only guy left. San Francisco knows that running the ball, keeping it on the ground and reducing the chance of turnovers is their key to this game – so run it they will.

|Jacksonville Jaguars at Tennessee Titans – Sunday 1:00pm|
Tennessee is a really good football team that is on their way up. It will show in this one as they dominate Jacksonville from start to finish. Expect total annihilation by the Tennessee offense and for Ryan Tannehill to put in a shockingly good fantasy performance. Jacksonville will be OK in the air, mainly because they will be forced to it early and will be trying to play catchup the entire game.

Prediction: Tennessee Titans 33 – Jacksonville Jaguars 14
