Matchup rating: 70.5 | Spread:: TB -5.5 (50.5)
What to look out for: Keep an eye on the protection for Carolina quarterback Teddy Bridgewater. He was sacked five times and pressured 15 times when he lost to the Bucs in Week 2. He threw two interceptions, and the panthers' offense never got into a rhythm. But when Bridgewater was kept relatively clean, he played well. – David Newton
Courageous prediction: After Tom Brady and the Bucs were kept out of the end zone for the first time this season with a 38-3 loss to the Saints last Sunday evening, they rebounded with a performance of five touchdowns. After the two previous losses earlier this season (Saints in Week 1 and Bears in Week 5), the Bucs recorded a combined 69 points (nine touchdowns) in Week 2 and Week 6. One of those games was against the Panthers, who are still fighting to get off the field in third rather than getting to the quarterback. – Jenna Laine
Stat of knowing: The Buccaneers only allow 77.9 rushing yards per game and 3.3 yards per rush this season, both the best in the NFL. And the panthers will likely run back without Christian McCaffrey.
Injuries: Privateer | Panther
What you should know for the imagination: Brady fought all night in week 9 on his way to 2.4 Fantasy Points. But in the game immediately after his last four single-digit appearances, the future Hall of Famer averaged 21.3 Fantasy Points. See rankings week 10.
Betting nugget: Brady is 19-6 against the Spread (ATS) in his career after losing, with 17 covers in his last 20 such games. And he lost more than 20 points with 7: 1 ATS. However, Bridgewater is 21-4 ATS in his underdog career, including five underdog straight covers this season. Continue reading.
Laine's choice: Buccaneer 30, Panther 21
Newton's choice: Buccaneer 24, Panther 20

Sunday, 1 p.m. ET | Fox
Matchup rating: 47.1 | Spread:: GB-13 (49.5)
What to look out for: The Packers don't often lose to such teams. You're 14-3 in games against teams winning 0.125 or worse with Aaron Rodgers as quarterback, according to ESPN Stats & Information Research. And Rodgers is 15-2 in his career as at least a 12-point favorite. The only two defeats came in 2018 to Arizona as a 13.5-point favorite and in 2011 to Kansas City as a 13-point favorite. – Rob Demovsky
Courageous prediction: Jacksonville QB Jake Luton will be laid off at least four times on Sunday. The Packers don't shine a lot – they rank 25th in this category – but what better time to break trends than when facing a rookie QB just making his second start? Luton completed only four of 13 passes and threw an interception when under pressure on his debut against Houston. While the Packers flashed 69 times this season, they picked up five of their 17 bags. – Mike DiRocco
Stat of knowing: According to data from the Elias Sports Bureau, Green Bay recipient Davante Adams Calvin Johnson (2012) became the only player in NFL history to join three games with at least 10 receptions, 150 receiving yards, and a receiving TD in one season – and Adams has only played six games that year.
Injuries: Jaguars | packer
What you should know for the imagination: Jaguars Running Back James Robinson has played six games with more than 14.5 fantasy points this season. The only setbacks with more games like this this season are two guys you've probably heard of: Alvin Kamara, eight, and Dalvin Cook, seven. See rankings week 10.
Betting nugget: Jacksonville is 1-5 ATS in games following a loss this season. And Green Bay is 5-1 ATS against teams with record losses. Continue reading.
DiRocco's choice: Packer 31, Jaguars 17
Demovsky's choice: Packer 33, Jaguars 13
FPI prediction: GB, 90.7% (average 17.7 points)

Sunday, 1 p.m. ET | Fox
Matchup rating: 38.4 | Spread:: CLE -3.5 (48)
What to look out for: Cleveland runs back Nick Chubb, who has been out with a knee injury since Week 4, is expected to return on Sunday. The Browns led the NFL in a rush when Chubb was healthy and they will try to roll back to the ground. – Jake Trotter
• Game selection from our NFL experts »
• PickCenter »| ESPN chalk »
More NFL coverage »
Courageous prediction: Regardless of who starts running back for the Browns, the team will run more than 175 yards. Before Chubb injured his knee on October 4th, Cleveland led the league in rushing, but has since rushed to 24th place with 96 rushing yards per game. Chubb could be activated from the injured reserve in time to play the Texans on Sunday, and a date against the final rapid defense (Houston allows an average of 159.5 rushing yards per game) could be the ticket to the Browns' running game back on track . – Sarah Barshop
Stat of knowing: Houston quarterback Deshaun Watson has six straight games with multiple touchdowns, the second-longest active streak in the NFL after Seattle's Russell Wilson (nine).
Injuries: Texans | Browns
What you should know for the imagination: The Texan recipient Will Fuller Vs 2.43 Fantasy Points per target ranks second among qualified recipients, just after DK Metcalf's 2.46. See rankings week 10.
Betting nugget: Houston is 0-5 ATS underdog and 0-4 ATS this season. Overall, the Texans 1-7 ATS brand is associated with the Jets for the second worst ATS brand. Continue reading.
Barshop & # 39; s selection: Browns 27, Texans 20
Trotter's choice: Browns 31, Texans 27
FPI prediction: CLE 61.7% (average 4.1 points)
Matchup must be read: Watson: Hell would have been if Texans had acted Fuller … Chubb's return will fuel Browns … Is Baker better without an OBJ?
Sunday, 1 p.m. ET | Fox
Matchup rating: 29.1 | Spread:: PHI -3.5 (44.5)
What to look out for: The Giants should have won the first matchup, but this could be another Eagles' offense that they face a few weeks later. Middle linebacker Blake Martinez even admitted that. The Eagles could really attack Lane Johnson, security guard Isaac Seumalo, Miles Sanders, Dallas Goedert, and wide angle receivers Alshon Jeffery and Jalen Reagor playing this time around, and that should make a noticeable difference. – Jordan Raanan
Courageous prediction: Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz will be responsible for four touchdowns. After the Eagles said goodbye, he had the opportunity to step back and recalibrate himself after a rocky first half. He'll calm the voices calling for Jalen Hurts as well as the voices calling for Nick Foles (hello Brett Favre) by taking them to the Giants defense, who is 25th against the pass. – Tim McManus
Stat of knowing: Giants QB Daniel Jones has lost 16 games in a row to all non-Washington opponents. Part of the problem is obviously sales. Jones has 36 since the start of last season, the most in the NFL, and has played at least one of 20 out of 22 career games. But Wentz is also in the midst of eight consecutive games on sales, the longest active streak in the NFL. Both QBs are among the top three in interceptions this season (Wentz is number 1 at 12, Jones is third at nine).
Injuries: Eagle | Giants
What you should know for the imagination: The Eagles' Travis Fulgham have been a top 15 fantasy receivers in three of their last four games, and the Giants are the 10th most vulnerable defense in terms of WR hits this season. See rankings week 10.
Betting nugget: The over is 23-10-2 in Philadelphia Road Games since the start of the 2016 season.
McManus' choice: Eagles 31, Giants 22
Raanan's choice: Eagles 32, Giants 20
FPI prediction: PHI 64.8% (average 5.1 points)
Matchup must be read: Pederson supports QB Wentz after Favre's comments … Upgrading the Giants 'defense is no longer a pushover for opposing offenses … Graham, the Eagles' mighty power and source of energy

Sunday, 1 p.m. ET | Fox
Matchup rating: 18.4 | Spread:: DET -3.5 (46.5)
What to look out for: Alex Smith is an NFL quarterback again. He is expected to make his first start to Washington on Sunday since breaking his right leg on Nov. 18, 2018. Smith's journey is one that Lions players have greatly respected. Linebacker Reggie Ragland, Smith's former Kansas City teammate, said he'll hug Smith despite COVID-19 logs, while Kerryon Johnson described Smith's return as "absolutely great." It is admirable. – Michael Rothstein
Courageous prediction: Washington's Antonio Gibson is set to crack 100 yards for the second time this season, but it won't be enough. Detroit QB Matthew Stafford will throw two touchdown passes and bring Washington down to 4-0 against quarterbacks, who are in the top 18 for Total QBR this season. – John Keim
Stat of knowing: Washington has lost five games on the road since 2019, averaging 17 points per game in those five defeats. But the Lions have been at home at 2-9 since the start of the 2019 season, the worst record in the NFL at that time. They are one of two teams still aiming for their first home win this season (Jets).
Injuries: Washington | Lions
What you should know for the imagination: Washington runs back J.D. McKissic was in the top 27 in three of his last four games, accounting for a third of Smith's deals in Week 9. See rankings for week 10.
Betting nugget: Detroit has been 2-9 ATS since last season started in November or later and hasn't covered (0-3 ATS) at home this season. Continue reading.
Germ choice: Lions 23, Washington 21
Rothstein's choice: Lions 27, Washington 24
FPI prediction: DET 53.0% (average 1.1 points)

Sunday, 4:05 p.m. ET | CBS
Matchup rating: 66.6 | Spread:: ARI -2.5 (56)
What to look out for: How will the bills handle the eligibility of Cardinal quarterback Kyler Murray? Buffalo allows an average of 4.6 yards per carry and Murray an average of 7.1. He's had the first 100-yard rushing game of his career and if he can play Buffalo where he left off last week, the Bills will have to figure out who to focus on defensively: Murray or something like DeAndre Hopkins, Larry Fitzgerald and Christian Kirk in the passing game. How the Bills decide to attack Arizona's offense determines how the matchup goes. – Josh Weinfuss
• Tua vs. Herbert: Next big QB rivalry?
• Diggs, Hopkins trades have really paid off
• Rookies affect Steelers, Bengals
• Seahawks OL prepares for archenemy Aaron Donald
• Mid-season reports 2020 for all 32 teams
Courageous prediction: Arizona will have less than 350 yards of attack for the second time this season as the healing bills defense continues to transition into 2019 form. – Marcel Louis-Jacques
Stat of knowing: The Cardinals rank second on Pass Block Win Rate this season, while the Bills rank fourth on Pass Rush Win Rate (via ESPN metrics provided by NFL Next Gen Stats).
Injuries: Invoices | Cardinals
What you should know for the imagination: Murray is one of three players in the past four weeks with 225 rushing yards and three rushing scores. Dalvin Cook and Derrick Henry are the other. See rankings week 10.
Betting nugget: Buffalo is 1-4 ATS for both their last five games overall and their last five street games. Continue reading.
Louis-Jacques & # 39; choice: Bills 31, Cardinals 24
Weinfuss' choice: Bills 34, Cardinals 31
FPI prediction: ARI 58.4% (average 2.9 points)

Sunday, 4:05 p.m. ET | CBS
Matchup rating: 39.4 | Spread:: LV -4 (50.5)
What to look out for: Get ready for the first head-to-head matchup between the first two wideouts – and former college teammates in Alabama – in the historically deep 2020 NFL Draft Receiver Class. Henry Rauggs III of the Raiders, twelfth overall , was hot and cold for Las Vegas with only 10 catches but an average of 22.0 yards per catch. And Jerry Jeudy, number 15 in the overall standings, leads Denver with 484 seats at 30 receptions with two points. – Paul Gutierrez
Courageous prediction: The Broncos will have two quick touchdowns. Why? Because almost everyone has had two quick touchdowns against the Raiders this season. Six of their eight opponents, including their two previous home opponents, had exactly two quick touchdowns. The Broncos have only seven rushed TDs in their first eight games, only one of which is from RB Phillip Lindsay. – Jeff Legwold
Stat of knowing: Raiders quarterback Derek Carr has the third best TD-to-INT ratio this season (8.0). He has thrown 16 touchdowns on two interceptions.
Injuries: Broncos | Raiders
What you should know for the imagination: Jeudy scored more points last week than his last three games combined and now he's facing a Raiders defense that has allowed not one, not two, not three, but four receivers to score north of 22 points. See rankings week 10.
Betting nugget: The ending is 7-1 in Las Vegas games this season, tied with New Orleans for the highest over percentage this season. Continue reading.
Legwold's choice: Broncos 24, Raiders 21
Gutierrez 'choice: Raiders 26, Broncos 24
FPI prediction: LV, 60.6% (average 3.7 points)
Matchup must be read: Unlock the lock: key to unlock the Broncos quarterback … More than just silver and black smoke and mirrors, raiders simply stack winnings … Broncos rookie receiver Jeudy takes his step … Gruden: Raiders & # 39; Johnson & # 39; baptized & # 39; with game-saving games … Broncos can show progress in the second half
Sunday, 4:05 p.m. ET | CBS
Matchup rating: 38.9 | Spread:: MIA -1 (48.5)
What to look out for: It's Tua Tagovailoa (# 5 in the 2020 draft) versus Justin Herbert (# 6), and while both players may be saying the right things this week, it is in the nature of a competitor to overtake any of the other top QBs in wanting his class. Herbert had a head start, started his career in Week 2 and threw only five interceptions for 17 TDs. But Tagovailoa starts with the advantage of wins (2-0 vs.16) in its third start and shows a tempting performance against Kyler Murrays Cardinals. Quite a duel. – Cameron Wolfe

More about the NFL draft »| Complete ranking »
Courageous prediction: Joey Bosa, the charger's edge rusher, will return and have six presses against Tagovailoa. He missed last week's game on the concussion log. – Shelley Smith
Stat of knowing: All of the Chargers' six losses that season were in one-score games, which, according to the Elias Sports Bureau (1944 Brooklyn Tigers, 1983 Buccaneers, and 2015 Ravens), accounted for most of those losses in a team's first eight games in the NFL history were responsible.
Injuries: Chargers | Dolphins
What you should know for the imagination: Since his debut in Week 2, Herbert has been QB4 per game (3/24). He is in the top 10 at the position in Rushing Yards, Passing Yards, and Fantasy Points per pass attempt. See rankings week 10.
Betting nugget: Miami has played four consecutive games, has been the home favorite with 4-1 ATS since the start of the 2018 season and since week 5 with 15-5 ATS last season – the best mark in the league. Continue reading.
Smith's choice: Chargers 27, Dolphins 23

Sunday, 4:25 p.m. ET | Fox
Matchup rating: 79.7 | Spread:: LAR -2 (54.5)
What to look out for: The Seahawks' offensive is one of the best in the league, leading the NFL with an average of 34.3 points per game. The Rams' defense, however, is strong under the first year coordinator Brandon Staley, averaging 19 points per game, the second best in the league. The Seahawks offensive will be the biggest test for the Rams since they fell to the Bills in Week 3, who also defeated the Seahawks in Week 9. Watch out for the Aaron Donald defensive tackle to try and disrupt QB Russell Wilson, whom he has sacked 12 times in his career, more than any other quarterback. – Lindsey Thiry
Courageous prediction: Donald and Seahawks Safety Jamal Adams will combine for a minimum of four sacks. The Seahawks have been the lightning-heavy team in the NFL for the past two weeks as they attempted to aid a pass guard that was injured at historic speeds. And Donald is tied in sacks for the NFL leadership at nine and could be in front of a backup center on Sunday if Ethan Pocic's concussion stops him from playing. – Brady Henderson
Stat of knowing: The Rams have allowed the fewest deals in throws over 20 yards (5 out of 23) this season and are the only team that has not yet allowed a passing TD for such a game. But Wilson has seven touchdowns on those throws this season (second in the NFL).
Injuries: Seahawks | Aries
What you should know for the imagination: For the past two seasons, Rams QB Jared Goff has left an average of 331.8 meters in his four meetings with the Seahawks, and Seattle is not stopping anyone right now. Week 9 marked the third time this season a QB scored over 34 fantasy points against them. See rankings week 10.
Betting nugget: Since Wilson was drafted in 2012, Seattle is 23-10-2 ATS as an underdog, the top grade in the NFL during that period. Continue reading.
Henderson's choice: Rams 28, Seahawks 26
Thiry's choice: Rams 28, Seahawks 26

Sunday, 4:25 p.m. ET | Fox
Matchup rating: 79.5 | Spread:: NO-10 (49)
What to look out for: The Saints have proven to be one of the hottest teams in the NFL. But they need to avoid disappointment against a 49ers team that has been decimated by injuries. San Francisco's exciting 48:46 victory in the Superdome last season should provide additional motivation. – Mike Triplet

Courageous prediction: Saints' recipient Michael Thomas will be playing his first major game of the season with more than 110 yards and at least one touchdown. In last year's meeting with San Francisco, he made 11 catches for 134 yards and a touchdown. Opposing offenses have put their top receivers in motion to play them off against Niner's cornerback Emmanuel Moseley, who allows a 109.9 pass rating if he's the next defender. If Moseley starts this week, it would be no surprise if Saint's coach Sean Payton does the same with Thomas. – Nick Wagoner
Stat of knowing: The 49ers are trying to avoid their first loss in three games since weeks 10-13 of 2018. They've had a 22-8 record with Jimmy Garoppolo (IR, ankle) as the starting QB since 2017, but they're only 5-22 with someone else in that time span.
Injuries: 49ers | Saints
What you should know for the imagination: As of week 5, the 49ers have been a bottom 10 defense on the opponent's degree of completion (67.9%). And Saints QB Drew Brees has completed 78.9% of his passes in the last three games. See rankings week 10.
Betting nugget: Since the beginning of last season, San Francisco has been on the way with 9: 3 ATS, the third-best brand in the NFL in this period, and 6: 1 ATS as the underdog (second best). Continue reading.

Sunday, 4:25 p.m. ET | Fox
Matchup rating: 53.5 | Spread:: PIT -7.5 (47.5)
What to look out for: All eyes are on Steeler's QB Ben Roethlisberger this weekend. He can be removed from the reserve / COVID-19 list on Saturday and the Steelers are preparing like he's playing. If he actually does take to the field on Sunday, he will do so with just one team pass and on two knees that were sore after a hit against the Cowboys. He should feel comforted that the Bengals only have 11 sacks this season and have swapped one of their biggest defensive anchors for Carlos Dunlap. Without Roethlisberger, the Steelers could start either Mason Rudolph or Joshua Dobbs. – Brooke Pryor
Courageous prediction: The Bengals will be less than 225 meters in total. Cincinnati recently rolled behind rookie quarterback Joe Burrow, but against a good defense he could have one of the toughest games of his young career. – Ben baby
Stat of knowing: The Steelers lead the NFL with 32 sacks and are second in the Pass Rush win rate this season, while the Bengals have allowed in 28 sacks – the second highest in the NFL – and 27th in the Pass Block Win rate (win rates over) ESPN metrics and NFL next gen stats).
Injuries: Bengals | Steelers
What you should know for the imagination: Big Ben failed to get 15.5 Fantasy points in each of its last three division games. See rankings week 10.
Betting nugget: For the past 10 seasons, Cincinnati has been 31-16-2 ATS as an underdog on the road, the second highest percentage of coverage in the NFL for that situation over that period. Underdogs in general have been ATS 15-6-2 in AFC North games since 2018. Read more.

Matchup rating: 74.7 | Spread:: BAL -7 (43.5)
What to look out for: Can the Patriots play their second wager-free game in a row? This is your best chance to spark the excitement. The Patriots have a sales difference of minus 1 in the season (tied for the 18th) while the Ravens are plus 4 (tied for the sixth). – Mike Reiss
Courageous prediction: The Ravens will score over 40 for the first time this season. During Baltimore's 10-game winning streak, quarterback Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore offense averaged more points (32.3) than anyone else away from home. New England, which dropped 37 points to the Ravens last season, have a battered defense working on a short week. – Jamison Hensley
Stat of knowing: The Patriots failed to score a temporary touchdown in four consecutive games. A fifth game in a row would represent the second-longest series in franchise history (1983 and 1988), and the franchise record of six games was set in 1972. One goal to watch out for the Pats to break the series is the broad receiver Jakobi Meyers, the career highs in receiving shipyards (169), receptions (12), goals (14) and first losses (8) in the victory of the Patriots had against the Jets on Monday.
Injuries: Ravens | Patriots
What you should know for the imagination: Jackson has scored 40.7% of his fantasy points with his legs this season, a rate not much different from last season (40%). The deep ball was the imagination problem as its points per deep try have dropped 36.3% this season. See rankings week 10.
Betting nugget: The Patriots have only been underdogs three times in the last 15 seasons and have won every game immediately. Continue reading.
Hensley's choice: Ravens 41, Patriots 24

Matchup rating: 49.6 | Spread:: MIN -2.5 (43)
What to look out for: Bears manager Matt Nagy is under tremendous pressure to fix the league's worst offense but he's been 4-0 against the Vikings since taking over in 2018 and 2-1 on Monday night football. In order for Nagy's steak against Minnesota to continue, the Chicago offense must be awakened. The Bears averaged a miserable 19.8 points and 82.6 rushing yards per game, ranking 31st in converting down (32.3%) and yards per game (4.81). On the other hand, the Vikings allowed opponents to score more than 30 points three times in 2020. – Jeff Dickerson

Courageous prediction: Vikings running back Dalvin Cook will face a ton of loaded boxes, so it is possible that the Vikings will have to get into a dropback game with quarterback Kirk Cousins to win this one. The Bears defenses know how to exploit Minnesota's weaknesses and will do so by firing cousins five times and not allowing him to make a pass more than 6 yards behind the field. – Courtney Cronin
Stat of knowing: Cousins ist 0-9 in seiner Karriere am Montagabend Fußball, die meisten Niederlagen in Folge durch einen Start-QB, um eine Karriere bei MNF zu beginnen, und die längste Pechsträhne durch einen Start-QB in der Geschichte von MNF.
Verletzungen: Wikinger | Bears
Was Sie für die Fantasie wissen sollten: Die Drew Brees und Alvin Kamara der Heiligen waren großartig, oder? In den letzten zwei Wochen haben sie 83,5 Punkte gesammelt. Nun, über diese Strecke hat Cook 87,8 Punkte – allein. Siehe Rangliste Woche 10.
Wettnugget: Alle fünf NFC North-Divisionsspiele haben in dieser Saison die Gesamtsumme überschritten, nachdem sie in der letzten Saison mit 9: 3 unterlegen waren. Weiterlesen.
Cronins Wahl: Bären 20, Wikinger 17
Dickersons Wahl: Wikinger 21, Bären 16
