Los Angeles Rams @ Houston Texans (1 p.m. ET Sunday, FOX)

The return of Houston QB Tyrod Taylor muddies this handicap as a result of the drop-off from the veteran to rookie Davis Mills is price at the least a area purpose. Taylor beat Jacksonville in the opener and left the Week 2 recreation towards Cleveland tied at 14. If he’s a go — and it appears to be like like he’s — the Texans ought to have success transferring the ball towards a shaky protection that simply gave up 415 yards to the winless Lions.

That mentioned, Houston’s protection was abysmal for the remaining three quarters towards the Cardinals, letting 4 completely different pass-catchers accumulate 50-plus yards receiving. The Rams have nearly as good of a fleet of receivers, led by Cooper Kupp, who paces the NFL in receptions and yards. The Texans have the fewest blitzes (30!) in the NFL to this point, and I don’t count on them to all of a sudden dial up strain towards Matt Stafford per week after he torched the Lions when blitzed (10-of-11, 142 yards, three touchdowns). 

If you’re questioning if that is perhaps a letdown spot, the Rams have an enormous nonconference recreation towards the Titans subsequent week, which is a possible Super Bowl preview. Pick: Rams to win by 8-12 factors

San Francisco 49ers @ Chicago Bears (1 p.m. ET Sunday, FOX)

The 49ers are a multitude, with Kyle Shanahan not sounding assured about Jimmy Garoppolo after a two-interception catastrophe in the center of a bomb cyclone on Sunday night time. The 49ers’ offense is atrocious with out tight finish George Kittle, as Deebo Samuel is the solely playmaker on the outdoors. If the run recreation is bottled up and the Bears deal with Samuel, the 49ers will actually wrestle to maneuver the ball, which is why this whole has been guess down by 3.5 factors already (from 43 to 39.5). 

Chicago’s head coach, Matt Nagy, examined constructive for COVID, however Bears followers nearly universally say this may assist jump-start a conservative offense. QB Justin Fields has understandably struggled badly versus aggressive defensive fronts resembling Cleveland and Tampa (sacked 13 occasions mixed, zero touchdowns). But towards lesser defenses, he’s rather more assured, at the same time as a recreation supervisor. He beat the Raiders on the highway regardless of throwing for simply 111 yards.

The 49ers’ run protection statistically is a top-10 unit, but it surely struggled to include Jonathan Taylor (18 rushes for 107 yards and a landing) on Sunday. Nobody runs on Tampa, however rookie Khalil Herbert did handle 100 yards on 18 carries, an indication that the offensive line has improved run-blocking. PICK: 49ers to win by 1-3 factors

Pittsburgh Steelers @ Cleveland Browns (1 p.m. ET Sunday, CBS)

How wholesome are the Browns? It’s powerful to know midweek, however even when Case Keenum begins rather than Baker Mayfield, they’re the proper aspect right here. 

Just as a result of they’d a bye week, keep in mind: The Steelers’ offense is just not good. The season-opening win over Buffalo is wanting an increasing number of fluky. Still, their three losses are to division leaders (Raiders, Bengals, Packers) with a mixed file of 16-5. Mike Tomlin final misplaced a recreation off a bye week in 2016, and traditionally he has thrived in the position of underdog, by which he’s 2-1 this season with a tricky non-cover in Green Bay. If the Steelers’ run protection wins at the line of scrimmage, the place will the Browns’ offense come from? 

You may in all probability say this each week, however Odell Beckham is price watching, provided that his final landing catch was 55 weeks in the past. With Beckham commerce discuss swirling, this week has a boom-bust really feel for the one-time star. PICK: Browns to win by 4-7 factors

Philadelphia Eagles @ Detroit Lions (1 p.m. ET Sunday, FOX)

For a winless workforce, the Lions positive do strive laborious. And this may lastly be the week they break by. After a dispiriting highway loss to the Rams by which they coated the unfold and pulled off an onside kick and transformed two faux punts, the Lions step down in school to face a woeful Eagles workforce that may’t do something proper.

Philadelphia took a 7-0 lead on the Raiders final week, then the protection gave up 30 straight factors on 5 consecutive possessions. The Eagles’ protection foolishly sat in a zone and didn’t blitz Derek Carr; he accomplished 90% of his passes — together with 16 straight throughout one stretch — and is now on tempo to interrupt Peyton Manning’s single-season file for passing yards. 

The Eagles blitz at the lowest fee in the NFL. Let’s see if they alter issues up, provided that Jared Goff’s largest weak point all through his profession is towards strain. D’Andre Swift ought to be capable of put collectively one other 150 yards from scrimmage towards a weak linebacker group from the Eagles, all of whom have been graded outdoors the prime 55 (!) at the place. 

But Jalen Hurts does stack fantasy rubbish factors with the better of them! PICK: Lions to win by 1-3 factors

Carolina Panthers @ Atlanta Falcons (1 p.m. ET Sunday, FOX)

SUN 1:00 PMNFLSPREADTO WINTOTALCAROLINA PANTHERS+3.0+135o47.0ATLANTA FALCONS-3.0-154u47.

Atlanta is a very completely different offense with rookie tight finish Kyle Pitts concerned. The Falcons went to London down their prime two receivers, and Pitts caught 9 passes for 119 yards. Even when the receivers returned, Pitts went for seven catches and 163 yards towards Miami final week — the largest receiving recreation for a rookie tight finish in additional than 30 years. 

Carolina has been league-average defending tight ends, however when dealing with Dallas, Dalton Schultz and Blake Jarwin mixed for 76 yards and two touchdowns on seven catches. If Shaq Thompson isn’t again from damage, Pitts may have one other monster recreation.

The Falcons have received three of 4, victories that got here towards the Giants, Jets and Dolphins (mixed file: 4-16). But are the Panthers good? They’ve misplaced 4 straight, have a QB controversy and are nonetheless lacking Christian McCaffrey, and Robby Anderson leads the NFL in drops. I hate laying factors with the Falcons as a result of that is the kind of recreation they traditionally lose, however Atlanta appears like the proper aspect. PICK: Falcons to win by 4-7 factors

Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ New Orleans Saints (4:25 p.m. ET Sunday, FOX)

Sunday incorporates a rematch of an exhilarating NFC playoff recreation by which the now-retired Drew Brees and the Saints turned the ball over 4 occasions and misplaced at dwelling after beating the Bucs soundly twice throughout the common season. 

Tom Brady performed poorly in all three video games, finishing lower than 60% of his passes in every, throwing 5 interceptions and getting sacked seven occasions. If he doesn’t get Antonio Brown and Rob Gronkowski again, this may very well be a tricky one for him as a result of Mike Evans has struggled in recent times towards Saints star CB Marshon Lattimore

Just as the Saints had been getting more healthy off the bye, although, they misplaced star guard Andrus Peat to a pec damage, and that’s suboptimal when dealing with one in all the finest defensive fronts in the NFL. Todd Bowles and the Bucs’ protection know Jameis Winston properly from his time in Tampa, so count on them to blitz him closely. 

Winston, to his credit score, has performed higher (13 TDs, 3 INTs) than anticipated and has solely 4 turnovers this season. But the Bucs are by far the workforce that blitzes the most in the NFL, and the Saints don’t have receivers who can win one-on-one. PICK: Buccaneers to win by 8-12 factors
