We had another solid outing in Week 3! We went 10-4-1 in our Week 3 picks and we will look to carry that momentum into this week with our NFL Week 4 picks! For those keeping track at home, we sit 20-5-1.
Colts at Bears
Matt Nagy’s Bears were down 16 in the third quarter on the road against the Falcons, and his offense couldn’t do anything. He had seen this time and time again; however, this time was different; Nagy had a reliable backup at Quarterback. Nick Foles stepped in and saved the day by throwing three fourth-quarter touchdowns passes in four minutes.
The Colts are coming in as the favorite, and I don’t know why. Indianapolis is 2-1, having lost to the Jaguars, and both of their wins came against winless teams. Their offense is without Michael Pittman and Parris Campbell. I think the Bears will key in on Jonathan Taylor and make Phillip Rivers try and beat them. I expect the offense to be more competent with Nick Foles under center. Watching Quenton Nelson vs. Akiem Hicks will be a treat this weekend as well.
Jaguars at Bengals
The Bengals have been fighting close in all games this year and nearly pulled off an upset in Philadelphia last weekend. I think this is the week they finally get their first win. The Jaguars were favored to beat the Dolphins but got defeated handily. I think we see Joe Burrow notch his first win with help from Tyler Boyd and his young weapons.
Browns at Cowboys
The Dallas Cowboys sit at 1-2, tied with the Washington Football Team for the NFC East Lead. The Dallas Offense is lighting up defenses, but similarly, other offenses are torching their secondary. I expect another high scoring game, but I see the Cowboys being on the winning end of this shootout.
