Good evening, everyone! Today I want to discuss which picks I got correct and which ones I got wrong. So, let’s get started! I predicted that the Dolphins would beat the Bills in a close game 27-24, but the final score was 21-19 Dolphins over the Bills. I predicted that the Bengals would beat the Jets to get revenge 25-16, but the final score was 27-12 Bengals over the Jets. I predicted that the Titans would beat the Raiders 31-28 in a close game, but the final score was 24-22 Titans over the Raiders. I predicted that the Vikings would beat the Lions 26-23 in a close game, but the final score was 28-24 Vikings over the Lions. I predicted that the Eagles would beat the Commanders 31-21, but the final score was 24-8 Eagles over the Commanders. I predicted that the Panthers would beat the Saints 23-20, but the final score was 22-14 Panthers over the Saints. I predicted that the Ravens would beat the Patriots 37-26 and guess what was the final score?! It was 37-26 Ravens over the Patriots. My prediction was right on the dot!!!!! I’m surprised that I got that prediction right!! I predicted that the Cowboys would beat the Giants 29-26, but the final score was 23-16 Cowboys over the Giants.
I predicted that the Chiefs would beat the Colts 38-22, but the final score was 20-17 Colts over the Chiefs. I predicted that the Chargers would beat the Jags 30-20, but the final score was 38-10 Jags over the Chargers. Wow! How did the Chargers play so bad against the Jaguars? Or maybe the Jags just got better this season. I predicted that the Cardinals would beat the Rams 27-20, but the final score was 20-12 Rams over the Cardinals. The Cardinals offense did not score a single touchdown as they are the only team to not score any points in the first quarter so far this season. Slow starts and playing form behind will not help you win games. The Cardinals offense had kept the Rams defense on the field for a long time and yet they did not score a touchdown and they had just 4 rushing yards in the first half. I wonder if Kyler Murray needs to be under center more often instead of trying to do the shotgun every play. I predicted that the Buccaneers would beat the Packers 35-27, but the final score was 14-12 Packers over the Bucs. The Packers defense really stepped up to stop Tom Brady even though he scored a last-minute touchdown. He failed to score a two-point conversion to tie the game at 14. I predicted that the 49ers would beat the Broncos 29-17, but the final score was 11-10 in a really close ugly game. The Broncos offense finally managed to score a touchdown late in the 4th quarter after they were being booed again by their fans for not moving the ball. Their defense stepped up in a critical situation and the 49ers offense made some big mistakes especially the one when Jimmy Garoppolo stepped out of his own end zone for a safety.
So overall, I have gotten 9 out of 14 picks correct! Now, let’s get to the week 4 NFL picks, shall we?! The first game I will predict is the Vikings @Saints game in London. I think the Vikings will actually beat the Saints 26-20. The next game I will predict is the Bills @Ravens game. This will be a very good game to watch. I think the Bills will beat the Ravens 28-24. The next game I will predict is the Titans @Colts game, the divisional rivalries. Both of these teams are coming off with the wins last week. I think the Colts will beat the Titans in a close game 23-20. The next game I will predict is the Jags @Eagles game. Both of these teams are coming off with the wins last week. The Jags surprisingly pulled an upset over the Chargers in a blowout. Can they do it again? Well, I don’t think that it will happen this time and I do think the Eagles will win this game over the Jags 27-19. The next game I will predict is the Commanders @Cowboys game, the divisional rivalries. I think the Cowboys will beat the Commanders 34-21. The Dallas Cowboys against the divisional rivalries so far is 7-0!! They play really good against their rivals. The next game I will predict is the Chargers @Texans game, the rematch of last season. The Chargers lost a game that they needed to win to have a better shot of making the playoffs. Had they won that game, they would have been in the playoffs and not having to worry about beating the Raiders that they ended up losing to as well. This is the game that the Chargers need to win. So, I do think that the Chargers will beat the Texans in a rematch 37-20. The next game I will predict is the Browns @Falcons game. I think the Browns will beat the Falcons 34-13.
The next game I will predict is the Cardinals @Panthers game. The weather is going to be cold and it could be raining there. The Cardinals have to get the run game going by going under center. The Panther’s defense has been pretty decent. The Cardinals have lost 5 straight games against the Panthers and have not beaten them since the 2008 playoffs and 2013 in Glendale, Arizona. They are also 0-2 against Matt Ruhl. Kyler Murray and Baker Mayfield will be playing each other again. So, who will win the game tomorrow? Well, I actually think the Panthers will beat the Cardinals in a close game 31-24. I’m not sure that the Cardinals can do enough to beat the Panthers. What if the offense struggles to score touchdowns again, get off to slow starts, and get too many penalties? I hope that they will prove me wrong, but right now I just don’t see it. The next game I will predict is the Seahawks @Lions game. I think the Lions will beat the Seahawks 27-24. The next game I will predict is the Broncos @Raiders game, the divisional rivalries. I think the Raiders will beat the Broncos 29-17. The Broncos so far on offense have struggled in back-to-back weeks even though they won back-to-back games which they almost lost winnable games even. The Raiders came close to beating the Titans and they need to get their first win of the season in fast otherwise, they won’t make the playoffs. The next game I will predict is the Patriots @Packers game. I think the Packers will beat the Patriots 34-18. The next game I will predict is the Super Bowl rematch teams, the Chiefs @Buccaneers game on Sunday Night Football. I think that the Chiefs will get revenge by beating the Bucs 27-20. The last game I will predict is the Rams @49ers game, the divisional rivalries on Monday Night Football. The 49ers have had the Rams number for 2-3 years, but the Rams have stopped that streak last postseason game in the NFC Championship game. I think that we will see the 49ers try to start up that winning streak again by beating the Rams in a close game 24-21.
So, what do you guys think about the NFL week 4 picks?! I would love to hear lots of comments, thoughts, opinions, questions, or concerns down below!
Stay tuned for NFL updates.
