Unanimous selections

Nearly half of this week’s games saw a universal predicted winner:

None of these results come as much of a surprise. The Ravens are two-touchdown favorites over New York and it’s very hard to see them losing on Thursday night. Elsewhere, the Seahawks are seeking to bounce back after a primetime loss to the Rams. Seattle gets a good draw in Carolina, where the Panthers have lost five games in a row.

The Redskins should give the Eagles a good battle, especially considering Philadelphia’s limitations and recent struggles. However, the Eagles are desperate for a win and are the more talented team, so they should pull out a win. Same goes for the Chiefs, who are taking on Drew Lock and the Broncos at home.

New England draws the Bengals on the road, as they should be able to beat up on Cincinnati after losing three out of their last four games. The Falcons have been playing better since their bye week, but the 49ers are at home and have lost just twice all season.

“Lone Wolf”

There’s three writers going against the grain this week:

  • Frank is alone in taking the Bears over the Packers in an NFC North showdown
  • Spencer is the only writer who chose the Jaguars to defeat the Raiders
  • Jake strayed from the norm in picking the Lions over the Buccaneers

Chicago has been on the rise recently, and a rejuvenated version of QB Mitchell Trubisky is at the forefront of their success. Frank likes their chances of pulling off an upset at Lambeau Field against a Packers squad that, despite being 10-3 on the year, has some flaws.

Unlike the Bears, the Jaguars are moving in the opposite direction after losing five straight contests. Still, Spencer is rolling with them to defeat the Raiders, who are in a skid of their own. The final lonesome selection came from Jake, who went out on a limb to take the Lions over the Buccaneers.

“Coin Flip”

The following matchups were most evenly-predicted and split:
