Still three winless teams in the NFL entering Week 6: Cleveland, San Francisco and the NY Giants. Will any of them get off the schneid this Sunday? Doubtful. Here are the opening lines from BetOnline.
This is the Thursday night game and perhaps the marquee game of the week as both clubs are 4-1 and atop their respective divisions. Cam Newton has been back in MVP form the past two weeks, and Carson Wentz is playing like a future MVP.Dolphins at Falcons (-9.5)
How much worse does Jay Cutler have to suck before replacing him with backup QB Matt Moore? The Fins do come off a win over the Titans but Cutler was just 12-for-26 for 92 yards. Atlanta is off its bye week.Packers at Vikings (TBA)
How good is Aaron Rodgers? He led a comeback from 15 points down in Dallas and won it on a last-second touchdown pass. Minnesota plays Monday night in Chicago in Week 6 and hoping for the return of QB Sam Bradford from injury.Lions at Saints (-3.5)
New Orleans comes off its bye week but has lost the past three seasons to the Lions, twice at the Superdome.Patriots at Jets (+9.5)
Raise your hand if you predicted the Jets would have the same 3-2 record as the Patriots entering Week 6. Yeah, didn’t think so. Tom Brady could set the NFL record for regular-season wins by a QB here.49ers at Redskins (-9.5)
Washington off its bye week. San Francisco might be the best of the winless teams considering it could have easily won the past four, losing each by three points or fewer.Bears at Ravens (-6.5)
Chicago hosts Minnesota on Monday night in Week 5 in the starting debut of rookie No. 2 overall pick Mitchell Trubisky under center. The Ravens took advantage of Derek Carr’s injury and won in Oakland on Sunday.Browns at Texans (-10.5)
Think Cleveland regrets trading the No. 12 overall pick in this year’s draft to Houston? The Texans took Deshaun Watson, and he looks like a star. It’s not clear who will start at QB for the Browns here as struggling rookie DeShone Kizer was yanked from Sunday’s loss vs. the Jets.Bucs at Cardinals (+1.5)
Has any team been more snake bitten when it comes to kickers since the start of last season than the Bucs? They are bringing in some guys to try out Monday after Nick Folk missed three field goals and a PAT in last Thursday’s loss to the Patriots.Rams at Jaguars (-2)
Who saw the Jaguars’ beatdown of Pittsburgh on Sunday coming? The Rams came crashing back to earth offensively in a home loss to Seattle.Steelers at Chiefs (-3)
Matchup of division leaders and rematch of last year’s Divisional Round game in Kansas City, which the Steelers won despite not scoring a touchdown. Chris Boswell kicked six field goals.Chargers at Raiders (TBA)
There won’t be a line on this game until it’s determined if Raiders QB Derek Carr will be able to return from his back injury.Giants at Broncos (-10)
Stick a fork in Big Blue (and Coach Ben McAdoo) after losing superstar receiver Odell Beckham Jr. for perhaps the season to a broken ankle suffered in Sunday’s loss to the Chargers.Colts at Titans (TBA)
The Monday night game for Week 6. Probably no line here until the status of Tennessee QB Marcus Mariota is clear. He sat out Sunday loss in Miami with a hamstring injury and Matt Cassel was awful in his place. No shock there.
