This is a pivotal time for some teams as there's a handful of injuries that can affect the start of the outcome of some important games. Let's take a look of where the value lies & some NFL picks.

Philadelphia Eagles vs. New York Jets: Who Would've Expected This?
The Jets look like a key contender as they possess one if not the best defense in the NFL and Ryan Fitzpatrick is fitting right in with the offense as he's connected with Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker several times. Decker's status is always a question mark (he will be out for this game), but this Jets defense looks unstoppable behind first year coach, Todd Bowles.

The Jets must face a desperate Eagles team that is staring 0-3 in the face. Not only that, DeMarco Murray, who ran for over 1800 yards last season has just 11 carries and 9 yards.

Murray is very upset about this and he's also dealing with hamstring injuries and those can be nagging. Philly doesn't appear to be a great fit for Murray as Chip Kelly is a coach that looks to pass the football. The Eagles have a problem here and this is a huge game for them. New York is favorite by just 2.5 points as the line is moving at this very moment. The Jets are the only NFL pick as Philadelphia has looked awful except for wide receiver Jordan Matthews, but Matthews can't do it by himself.

NFL Pick- New York Jets -2.5 -110 at 5Dimes.

Denver Broncos vs. Detroit Lions
Another running back who has grossly underperformed has been C.J. Anderson. So much, that the Broncos have went back to Ronnie Hillman. The Broncos have been lucky to be 2-0 as their offensive line is terrible!

Peyton Manning, who has lost some zip on the ball, has gotten rid of the football before he's wanted to and the numbers tell the story. Thankfully for Peyton, he's had Emmanuel Sanders and Demaryius Thomas to throw the football to.

It's gone public that Peyton and head coach, Gary Kubiak, have had a disagreement. Peyton wants to go to the shotgun and we know why, but Kubiak is the boss. Therefore, expect more trouble with the Denver offense. As for the Detroit offense, look for the Lions to target Calvin Johnson, who has been underused thus far. He was once the best player in the game.

NFL Pick- Detroit +3 -102

Chicago Bears vs. Seattle Seahawks: Kam Chancellor Is Back
Kam Chancellor has finally stopped being petty as he's seen his team fall to 0-2 and the Legion of Boom will be back at full force. Seattle is a major favorite in this game and it's easy to see why. Jay Cutler and Alshon Jeffery are both out this week with injuries.Chicago will sorely miss Jeffery while Cutler is an average NFL quarterback at best.

For Seattle, Marshawn Lynch is battling injuries, but we all know that he's a warrior and he plays his best football when at home. One major concern for the Seahawks is the play of Jimmy Graham. Graham is the 2nd best tight end in this league and isn't being utilized properly and has openly experessed that he's not happy about.

I expect for Graham to see a ton of footballs come his way, but inevitably, he's a great player that's simply not a great fit on a team that has seen the Super Bowl the last two seasons. Seattle is more than a two touchdown favorite in this game and should crush Chicago quite easily.

NFL Pick- Seattle Seahawks -14.5 -108 at 5 Dimes (Don't be scared by the NFL odds. Chicago is decimated by injuries and an awful football team)
