Season To Date: 8-4

 

Seattle Seahawks (2-2) at Cincinnati Bengals (4-0): Seattle only scored 13 points against the Lions at home.  Their offense is struggling with an ineffective offensive line.  Russell Wilson looks like a magician at times, but the pressure he faces every week is troublesome.  The Bengals are at home, more rested than Seattle and likely view this game as a chance to make a statement.  Seattle’s terrific defense is on the field too much to shutdown Cincinnati’s balanced offense.  Bengals 17- Seahawks 10.

 

Denver Broncos (4-0) at Oakland Raiders (2-2): The Silver & Black are improved, but Derek Carr faces a really good Denver defense.  The Broncos have one of the better pass rushes in the NFL.  Wade Phillips excels at putting together creative blitz packages and Carr should have a long day.  Peyton Manning is diminished, but the Raiders surrender a bunch of yards through the air.  Denver 30- Oakland 13.

 

St. Louis Rams (2-2) at Green Bay Packers (4-0): The Rams have the defensive line, secondary and talented young back to make this game interesting.  Aaron Rodgers is playing almost perfect football at home.  The Packers can be run on and in Todd Gurley the Rams have a horse that they can ride.  St. Louis can shorten the game and limit Green Bay’s touches on offense.  However, in the end Rodgers will make enough plays to keep the Pack perfect.  Packers 24- Rams 17.
