Cleveland Browns vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Cleveland aren’t one of the greatest teams, but they are undoubtedly better than Tampa Bay who are probably one of, if not, the worst team in the league. Cleveland’s record sits at 4-3 and Tampa’s at 1-6. It’s slightly disconcerting that they only beat the Raiders by 10 points a week ago, but the Raiders are improving, despite also being terrible and winless. The loss of tight end Jordan Cameron is a slight worry, but the quarterback, Hoyer, has started to step up in recent games and I expect the Browns’s running game to help them beat the line on offer with the bookmakers.

Kansas City Chiefs vs New York Jets

Okay, so another contender for worst team of the year has to be the Jets. Despite bringing in Michael Vick to replace the abysmal Geno Smith, with the latter making some okay plays in his ten minute introduction last week, I still don’t think they will trouble a Kansas team that is red hot on form and playing some great football. The Jets were quite easily dismantled at home against a Buffalo team whose record at the Jets hadn’t read to well prior to last week. Kansas have a solid passing game and Jamaal Charles is starting to run the ball really well after an indifferent start due to injuries, so all these things point to a KCC victory by 10 points.

New York Giants vs Indianapolis Colts

I feel a little bit stupid backing the Colts after their dismal performance last week. The Colts have been one of the better teams this year and Andrew Luck is still maturing into a fine quarterback. I feel his precision will be able to pick some holes in the Giants and they will get some points on the board. The Giants have been unpredictable, and they will likely try to replicate what the Steelers did last week but fail to do so. They are missing Rashad Jennings who would help them mix up the running and passing game, but without him they will be relying on Manning to throw a lot of touchdowns against a defence that has been solid for the vast majority of the year. There are some closely matched games this week, making it hard to pick between Broncos/Patriots and Eagles/Texans. All the lines are close and evenly matched, but I expect Colts to bounce back with a win here and cover the line on offer.
