The NFL Week has already begun with Denver beating San Diego on Thursday, but I’ll offer my predictions for the remaining games this week:


Detroit Lions (5-2) @ Atlanta Falcons (2-5) (London): Detroit continues its upswing and decisively defeats a struggling Falcons team behind another big day from Golden Tate.

Pick: Lions


Buffalo Bills (4-3) @ New York Jets (1-6): The Kyle Orton-led Bills have no trouble taking care of Rex Ryan’s lost team that’s only managed to beat the winless Raiders.

Pick: Bills


Baltimore Ravens (5-2) @ Cincinnati Bengals (3-3-1): The Ravens avenge their Week 1 loss and smother Cincy’s lifeless offense.

Pick: Ravens


Seattle Seahawks (3-3) @ Carolina Panthers (3-3-1): The game goes to the wire, but Russell Wilson leads Seattle to a late victory in a matchup of 2 underachieving teams.

Pick: Seahawks


Chicago Bears (3-4) @ New England Patriots (5-2): The Bears’ offense has a bounce-back game, but their defense can’t contain a balanced New England offense on the road.

Pick: Patriots


Houston Texans (3-4) @ Tennessee Titans (2-5): J.J. Watt and Houston’s defense have a sack-fest on Titans rookie signal-caller Zach Mettenberger , while their offense has an efficient outing, following Arian Foster to a W.

Pick: Texans


Miami Dolphins (3-3) @ Jacksonville Jaguars (1-6): It’s hard to believe Miami head coach Joe Philbin considered benching Ryan Tannehill, who goes off on the Jags and their depleted defense en route to an easy victory.

Pick: Dolphins


St. Louis Rams (2-4) @ Kansas City Chiefs (3-3): Coming off an exciting win over the defending champion Seahawks, the Rams can’t repeat their magic on the road and fall to Chiefs.

Pick: Chiefs


Minnesota Vikings (2-5) @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers (1-5): The Vikings ride their halfback duo of Jerick McKinnon and Matt Asiata to a 3-5 record, while the Bucs once again fail to compete.

Pick: Vikings


Philadelphia Eagles (5-1) @ Arizona Cardinals (5-1): In the most important game of the week, Philadelphia’s offense realizes its potential and proves to be too much for the Cards to handle.

Pick: Eagles


Oakland Raiders (0-6) @ Cleveland Browns (3-3): The Browns get back on track, denying Oakland its first win behind solid play from Brian Hoyer.

Pick: Browns


Indianapolis Colts (5-2) @ Pittsburgh Steelers (4-3): Indy continues its win streak thanks to an offensive explosion from Andrew Luck.

Pick: Colts


Green Bay Packers (5-2) @ New Orleans Saints (2-5): Green Bay survives a thriller in the Superdome and improve to 6-2.

Pick: Packers


Washington Redskins (2-5) @ Dallas Cowboys (6-1): Dallas continues its brilliant season, but this time they rely not on DeMarco Murray’s legs, but on the strength of Tony Romo’s arm.

Pick: Cowboys
