Philadelphia at Jacksonville, 9:30a, NFLN (Jaguars +4, O/U: 44)
The Jaguars are benching their former number 1 pick and settling with Cody Kessler. Their defense will still be tough but Wentz doesn’t turnover the ball (10 touchdowns to 1 pick). Take the Eagles to cover in the under, Eagles 24-14.
Baltimore at Carolina, 1:00p, CBS (Panthers +2.5, O/U: 44)
The Ravens haven’t impressed much on offense but their defense is one of the top 3 in the league. The Panthers are usually pretty good at home and steal wins Sunday good teams at home when they’re the underdogs. Cam has had a solid year and Run CMC has been a beast in his second year. Take the Panthers to cover in the win, in the over, Panthers 24-21.
Cleveland at Pittsburgh, 1:00p, CBS (Steelers -8, O/U:48.5)
There’s a mess brewing in Cleveland (surprise) and Haley is being questioned. Baker is having trouble getting the offense I into the end zone. Steelers are great in front of their fans. Big Ben has turned the ball over a bunch this year and the Browns have caused a bunch of turnovers but can’t capitalize on those with points. Take the Steelers to cover in the under, Steelers 24-14.
