Season To Date: 5-7


Atlanta Falcons (3-1) at Denver Broncos (4-0): Atlanta’s offense is explosive, but Denver’s defense is a totally different animal.  The combination of the Broncos’ pass rush and terrific secondary will quiet the Matt Ryan to Julio Jones connection. Denver will be able to run the ball on a suspect Atlanta defense and set-up play-action strikes downfield.  The defending champs continue their impressive early season play.  Broncos 27- Falcons 17.


Cincinnati Bengals (2-2) at Dallas Cowboys (3-1): The Cowboys have beaten suspect teams, but are better than many thought once Tony Romo went down.  The Bengals need this game and should be able to run the ball against a mediocre Dallas defense.  Cincinnati wins on the road as Andy Dalton outplays Dak Prescott.  Bengals 23- Cowboys 17.


New York Giants (2-2) at Green Bay Packers (2-1): The Packers are getting healthy on defense.  Green Bay is rested and must win at home to keep close to the streaking Vikings.  New York is improved on defense, but still do not force turnovers.  Green Bay 24- Giants 20.
