Ok, this author has most definitely lost it. Right? But of all
the people who might be able to successfully game plan against
Tom Brady and
it probably is Bill Belichick. Yes, he is working with a rookie
QB in Mac Jones,
but his defense is one of the best in the league, and matches
up very nicely against the Bucs offense. After looking at the
table below, how comfortable do you feel knowing that the building
will be electric on Brady’s return?

#3: GB over Pittsburgh: (2-1: buf, TB, AZ)
After scoring only three points in Week 1, Aaron Rodgers has
thrown six touchdowns and Aaron Jones has four rushing touchdowns
in the last two games. That accounts for 60 points. Pretty solid.
Meanwhile, since their opening week shocker in Western NY, the
Steelers have failed to mount much of an offense. They have a
running game, that is dead last in the NFL and is usually a basis
of their gameplan. JuJu Smith-Schuster is questionable with bruised
ribs and Ben Roethlisberger looks old and dusty.
If this game was played in Pittsburgh, Roethlisberger might be
able to find a miracle to win this. But back in Lambeau field,
the Pack wins this after film on how the Bengals and Raiders easily
handled this Mike Tomlin team that is still trying to find an
identity in 2021.

#2: New Orleans over the NY Giants : (3-0: TB, GB, DEN)
The New Orleans Saints return home for the first time since Hurricane
Ida. The good news for the Saints and the local Cajuns, is they
have the lowly NY Giants (0-3) coming to town. They lost both
Sterling Sheperd and Darius
Slayton to hamstring injuries early in week 3 and expect to
start rookie Kadarius
Toney in the slot.
After living in hotels for the last four weeks, at the Dallas
Omni, and then the Four Season in Las Colinas, returning home
with the family should help the Saints defense focus against a
Giants offense that struggles against even mediocre teams.
It will be a parte’ environment in the dome. Take the Saints as
they march easily in their return home.
#1: Buffalo over Houston: (3-0: SF, CLE, CAR)
has felt the pressure of repeating his 2020 performance and it
showed in the first two weeks. Then, he exploded for five touchdowns
(four passing and one rushing) in Week 3. This week, Allen and
company get a Houston team that has their best quarterback not
Watson), their backup Tyrod
Taylor, now on IR, and rookie Davis
Mills going up against a 4th ranked defense. Yes, he has had
a full week to prepare, but the Bills are starting to get their
2021 team on track. After an opening week “flop” against Pittsburgh,
the Buffalo should continue their domination over the NFL with
a 30+ point effort. Take the Bills, but don’t give the points.
