NFL Week Six Bold Predictions

Week six is officially underway. Check out our NFL analysts’ bold predictions for this weeks slate of games:

Daryan Martin:

Eno Benjamin will have over 100 total yards

The Seattle Seahawks defense have given up 30.8 points per game to opposing offenses and that trend is going to continue this week. Benjamin will be playing as the lead running back for the Arizona Cardinals this week. He will have opportunities to gain yards in both the pass and run game. The Cardinals running back has good hands and elite vision to accelerate through open holes. Arizona’s head coach Kliff Kingsbury has high expectations this season, so it’s important to take advantage of playing against one of the worst defenses in the NFL. Fantasy owners should buy on Benjamin this week as he is primed to have a big day on Sunday.

New York Jets will upset the Green Bay Packers on Sunday

This will be the first time in many years that the Green Bay Packers will lose to both NFL New York teams. The Jets are coming off a 23 point win against the Miami Dolphins and will look to extend their winning streak to three games. Jets quarterback Zach Wilson hasn’t played great since returning from injury, but is managing the game well enough to produce wins. This will be the week Wilson picks his play up to be the deciding factor on the outcome of the game. Running the football and playing decent defense isn’t going to beat Aaron Rodgers, so Wilson will be forced to take more risks. The Robert Saleh era will be one Jets fans remember as New York will match their win total from last year in just six weeks.

Elie Gaffen:

The Carolina Panthers Will Beat the Los Angeles Rams

The Carolina Panthers are in for a huge game against the Los Angeles Rams in the first game following the firing of their head coach Matt Rhule. The firing could put a spark in the Panthers to implement change in their play calling and lead them to their second win of the season. Like the Panthers, the Rams have also been struggling so far this season and especially in the last of recent as they lost their last two games with a total point differential of 27. Call it a hunch but I think the Panthers stir something up in their second road game of the season on Sunday and take a win over the Rams and get the fans hyped up for the new era of Carolina football.

The Denver Broncos Will Beat the Los Angeles Chargers

On top of the Rams going down, I think another Los Angeles team can go down this week and that is the Los Angeles Chargers. The Chargers are slowly heating up after winning their last two games for a combined total of 64 points. Now they face a team that has only given up 16 points per game so far this season. The only caveat would be that we are seeing yet another prime time game for the Broncos who have struggled immensely under the big lights. I think the Broncos will get their offense in shape this game and even score three or four touchdowns on Monday night. I think this could be a get-right game for Russell Wilson to get his team on the right track and carry them over the Chargers.

Isabelle McCarthy:

Bills and Chiefs Combine For Over 80 Points

Last year in the AFC Divisional Game the nation witnessed the best back and forth game that season. We learned Patrick Mahomes only needs 13 seconds to put his team in scoring position. We also learned that Josh Allen can be as clutch as it gets, but Patrick Mahomes will always have Mahomes magic. With two defenses plagued with injuries, I firmly believe this game will be a shootout of two offenses led by elite quarterbacks. A game that should have been on Sunday Night Football, with the Buffalo Bills allowing on average 281.8 yards per game, with the Kansas City Chiefs allowing on average 361 yards per game. Both teams score on average around 30 points per game, which is why I believe the final total will be over 80 points due to injured defenses, especially with Tre’Davious White being out for the Bills. 

Colts Upset Jaguars

The last time these two teams faced off, the Jacksonville Jaguars shut out the Indianapolis Colts 24-0. Even though the Jaguars have won four of the past six series, they have lost each of the past two seasons in Indianapolis. The last time the Colts played, it was an extremely sloppy game against the Denver Broncos, but with injuries on both teams, I think the Colts have the upper hand because the game will be in Indy. If the Colts can get pressure and force Trevor Lawrence to feel uncomfortable like the Philadelphia Eagles did then it’s the Colts game to lose. Matt Ryan and the Colts offense will need to get the ball moving to keep Trevor Lawrence off the field to win this game.
