Pittsburgh Steelers at Kansas City Chiefs

Pittsburgh Steelers at Kansas City ChiefsAFC clash coming on Sunday as Pittsburgh Steelers visit Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium

The Pittsburgh Steelers had some early-season struggles but don’t count out them out in this one. The Steelers have some of the most potent weapons in the league. Pittsburgh would restore a great deal of confidence if it can pull the upset. The Chiefs will remain undefeated on the season with a win in this one. This NFL football game in Week 6 is scheduled take place on Sunday, October 15, 2017, at 4:25 p.m. ET at Arrowhead Stadium.

The Kansas City Chiefs has taken on some tough injurys. The Chiefs All-Pro tight end Travis Kelce suffered a concussion in Sunday’s win over the Texans. Also, Kansas City’s  wide receiver Chris Conley will miss the rest of the season with a ruptured Achilles. The Chiefs defense isn’t what it was earlier in the year.  Quarterback Alex Smith is playing at a high level and will fight hard  in this one.

The Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger had a bad day last time out. Big Ben threw for 312 yards against the Jaguars but threw five interceptions in a blowout loss. The Steelers has one of the best wide receivers in Antonio Brown in the NFL. Wide receiver Martavis Bryant and running back Le’Veon Bell are also big weapons. The Steelers need to get their  passing game in better form. The Steelers have become a dependable defensive team this season, ranking fourth in yards allowed and first against the pass.  If Ben has a good day Sportsbooks Games thinks the Steelers will announce themselves back among the best teams in the AFC.

Carolina Panthers at Detroit Lions

Carolina Panthers at Detroit LionsDetroit Lions and Carolina Panthers both bring 3-1 record into Ford Field on Sunday

The Detroit Lions knocked off the Minnesota Vikings on the road last weekend. The Carolina Panthers handed the New England Patriots their second home loss of the season. The Panthers offense got rolling last time out and will need it in this game as a road underdog. The Lions defense has been playing in good form so far. Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford has been playing well and Detroit has the look of a playoff contender. This regular season Week 5 NFL game is scheduled for Sunday, October 8, 2017, at 1 p.m. ET at Ford Field.

The Carolina Panthers (3-1) has won five of the seven all-time meetings with Detroit. The last time the Panthers visited Ford Field, in 2011, the Lions won 49-35. The Panthers are a hard team to figure out right now. One minute they look good and the next they look poor. In their 33-30 win against New England, Cam Newton completed 22 of 29 passes for 316 yards with 3 touchdowns and one interception. The Panthers offense are averaging 19.5 points and 318.5 total yards per game. The defense are giving up 17.5 points and 282.0 total yards per game.

The Detroit Lions (3-1) are tied atop the NFC North after their 14-7 win over the Minnesota Vikings. The Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford completed 19 of 31 passes for 209 yards. The Lions offense are averaging 24.8 points and 299.8 total yards per game. The defense are giving up 17.5 points and 322.5 total yards per game. The Lions defensive lineman Antony Zettel has been a huge contributor thus far with four sacks in four games. If the defensive line can put together a nice group effort they could keep Cam Newton contained. The Lions have the home field advantage, and Sportsbooks Games picks them for another win in this one.

Carolina Panthers at New England Patriots

The Carolina Panthers are 2-1 on the season but are coming off a 34-13 loss to the New Orleans Saints. The New England Patriots are sitting at 2-1 this year as well. New England lost the opener against the Chiefs, then got wins over New Orleans 36-20 and Houston 36-33. The NFL game will kickoff on Sunday, October 1, 2017, at 1 p.m. ET at Gillette Stadium.

The New England Patriots isn’t running on all cylinders quite yet and the defense has had some issues.  New England escaped in that Texans game and now remains in a comfortable spot in the standings. So far this season, Brady has 1092 yards and eight touchdowns. Running back Mike Gillislee is the Patriots top rusher with 145 yards, four scores and 45 attempts. Cooks is New England’s leading receiver with 256 yards, two touchdowns and 10 receptions on 18 targets. New England does have some problems on defense, giving up a total of 95 points in three games.

The Carolina Panthers offense has not been very good to start the year and that could be trouble for the team. In the first three games so far, Cam Newton has 566 yards, two touchdowns and four interceptions. Running back Jonathan Stewart leads the rushers with 45 attempts and 162 yards. McCaffrey is tops on the Panthers with 23 targets, 18 receptions and 173 yards. The Panthers need more out of Newton to make this a competitive game. The defense allowed only six combined points in wins over the 49ers and the Bills, but the Saints dominated through the air and the Patriots aren’t going to be slowed down either. Sportsbooks Games thinks this is a bad matchup for Carolina. Take the Patriots to cruise to the victory in this one.

Atlanta Falcons at Detroit Lions

The Detroit Lions started the season with a comeback win over the Arizona Cardinals. They played their second game of the season with a 24-10 win against the New York Giants on Monday night. The Atlanta Falcons are playing well again this year and are building momentum. The Falcons are 2-0 after defeating Green Bay 34-23 last weekend. This NFL game in Week 3 is scheduled for Sunday, September 24, 2017, at 1 p.m. ET at Ford Field.

The Detroit Lions could turn heads with an upset victory but it will be tough against the Falcons. Quarterback Matthew Stafford didn’t have a great day against New York on Monday night. Stafford threw for just 122 yards and lost a fumble. However, the Lions never trailed in their 24-10 win. The difference in this game was Detroit’s swarming defense. The defense is continuing to get better. If the Lions have any chance of slowing down the Falcons, they must keep Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones in check. That responsibility could fall on Darius Slay, the Lions top cornerback. Slay and the rest of the Lions need to force the other wideouts to beat them in this one.

Atlanta Falcons and quarterback Matt Ryan had a dominating victory against the Green Bay Packers Sunday night. Ryan threw for 252 yards and a touchdown. Julio Jones finished with five catches for 108 yards. Freeman rushed for 84 yards, and Tevin Coleman had 42 yards on the ground plus a touchdown catch. Trufant  scored a defensive touchdown and a crucial interception near the end of the first half. The Atlanta Falcons have a lot of weapons on offense that can still put up a lot of points even without Jones. However, if Jones cannot be contained  Atlanta will light up the scoreboard.  The scoring total should be high with a ton of passes. Sportsbooks Games take the Falcons to win this game.

Philadelphia Eagles at Kansas City Chiefs – NFL

Philadelphia Eagles at Kansas City ChiefsPhiladelphia Eagles take on Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium, Kansas City, Missouri

The Kansas City Chiefs opened the season with an impressive win over the defending champion New England. The Chiefs scored 42 points on defending Super Bowl champions, registering an eye-opening upset. They will try to keep that momentum when they match up with the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 2. The Eagles were impressive in their season opening road win over the Redskins. This football game is scheduled for Sunday, September 17, 2017, at 1 p.m. ET at Arrowhead Stadium.

The Kansas City Chiefs has a solid defense. If the Chiefs offense take the next step and be explosive, this team will be tough to handle. During the season opener speedy wideout Tyreek Hill and rookie Kareem Hunt made a pair of 75-plus-yard TD receptions. Keep in mind the upset of New England was only one game. Quarterback Alex Smith has the reputation of being a conservative game manager.

The Philadelphia Eagles should be able to make this one a grind out tough affair. The Eagles has a very talented defense which did not allow the Washington running game to get going last week.  The Philadelphia Eagles offense seems to coming along also. Quarterback Carson Wentz started his second year by completing 26 of 39 passes for 307 yards with two touchdowns and one interception. The new running back  LeGarrette Blount and new wide receiver Alshon Jeffery made great contributions duing the game. Also, wide receiver Nelson Agholor made six receptions for 86 yards and a 58-yard TD catch. Sportsbooks Games believes this game should to be low-scoring because both defenses are very talented and gives an edge to the Chiefs at home.

New England Patriots vs. Kansas City Chiefs

New England Patriots vs Kansas City ChiefsNew England Patriots take on Kansas City Chiefs, September 7th

The New England Patriots will kick off the 2017 NFL season with a primetime game against the Kansas City Chiefs. The New England Patriots are favorites to continue there winning streak in Week 1 against the Kansas City Chiefs. This is not a sure thing as there are several matchups across the field that could end up deciding this game. This duel will take place on Thursday, September 7, 2017 at 8:30 p.m. ET from Gillette Stadium. The game  will be broadcast on NBC.

The New England Patriots are among the top teams in the NFL in sacks allowed. a New England quarterbacks were sacked just 27 times last season, tied for fifth-best in the NFL. The tackles, Nate Soldier and Marcus Cannon deserve the credit for that. However the Chiefs have one of the most intimidating pass rushes in the NFL. The Kansas City Chiefs should be able to send Tamba Hali, Justin Houston and Dee Ford after Brady. These players combined for 17.5 sacks last season.

The Patriots will have to play without its top wide receiver Julian Edelman. He suffered an ACL tear during last week’s preseason contest in Detroit. Also, the Chiefs running back Spencer Ware suffered a torn PCL in the team’s third preseason game. The injury will likely require surgery and might keep Kansas City’s number one running back out for the entire 2017 campaign. Ware was the top offensive weapon last year for the Chiefs with 1,368 yards from scrimmage. With Ware being out Sportsbooks Games undoubtedly will give the Patriots an edge in this one.
