2:49: Miami Dolphins +7 at New England Patriots: History says Patriots crush after two straight losses but… have the real 2018 Patriots already stood up?
12:20: Cincinnati Bengals +4 at Atlanta Falcons: The Falcons defense is a mess. Live dog alert here.
16:01: Buffalo Bills +9.5/10 at Green Bay Packers: Coming off an outright win in Minnesota as a 16.5-point dog. Lookahead line here was Packers -14.5. Mixed opinions from Eric and Lou.
23:16: Detroit Lions +3 at Dallas Cowboys: A couple middling teams separated pretty reasonably separated by a field goal. Detroit off a big win.
24:33: Tampa Bay Bucs +3 at Chicago Bears: Potential mismatch in the trenches.
28:45: Cleveland Browns +2.5/3 at Oakland Raiders: Some recency bias in favor of the Browns? Oakland will be preparing for Baker Mayfield.
33:00: Houston Texans +1 at Indianapolis Colts: Do the Texans finally get off the schneid? The Colts are pretty well dinged up in a desperation situation for Houston.
37:39: New York Jets +7.5 at Jacksonville Jaguars: The Jets are embarking on a pretty difficult stretch after the Jaguars just dropped an egg.
39:11: San Francisco 49ers +10.5 at Los Angeles Chargers: Here comes “Checkdown Charlie” Beathard . Another pass.
40:35: New Orleans Saints -3 at New York Giants: Saints playing outdoors for the first time this year and Flowers has been planted on the bench. Can you hear some barking?
43:15: Baltimore Ravens +3 at Pittsburgh Steelers: As always, a three-point spread between Steelers and Ravens. But how about that total of 51 that’s moved from 48.5 to 51?
44:35: Kansas City Chiefs -4.5 at Denver Broncos: Taking the points at Mile High, at the right time.
