Top Three Games of the Week

Packers @ Cardinals: 

The Packers vs the Cardinals could be the game of the year. This matchup has two of the best records in the NFC facing off the Packer at 6-1 and the Cardinals at 7-0. The Packers didn’t start off the year the best, they got blown out in week 1 against the Saints 38-3, but since then they’ve won six in a row. Aaron Rodgers has been red hot since then, he’s thrown 15 touchdowns to 1 interception. Everybody’s eyes have been on the Cardinals this year, the Cardinals have shown that they aren’t 7-0 for no reason. The Cardinals have blown out teams such as the Rams and the Titans. Kyler Murray has shown out this year, he is in first place in the MVP race for the season. Everybody’s excited to watch Aaron Rodgers and Kyler Murray duel it out on Thursday night football. The Packers are +6 underdogs in the spread.

Buccaneers @ Saints: 

Tom Brady’s first game as a Buc didn’t go as planned last year when they lost 34-24 against the Saints. The Bucs were 0-2 against the Saints last season until they faced the Saints in the playoffs and beat them 30-20 on their incredible Super Bowl run. The Bucs since then have been near unstoppable, having three of their receivers being possible number one receivers in other offenses. The Saints on the other hand have had some struggles with their number one receiver ever since Michael Thomas has been injured throughout this and last season. The Saints have been able to make do with it though posting up a 4-2 record after they just beat the Seahawks 13-10 on Monday night football. If the defense for the Saints can step up and make plays, then this game should be a good one. The Saints are a +4.5 point underdog against the Bucs this week. 

Cowboys @ Vikings: 

This Cowboys vs Vikings matchup will mark the third consecutive year these two teams will face off. The series is tied up at 1-1 with the Cowboys taking the last matchup in a shootout victory 31-28. The Cowboys are red hot this year as they just came off of a bye week after they won five games in a row, putting them at 5-1. The Vikings have been up and down this year, they just came off of their bye week as well after winning two in a row. Kirk Cousins has been playing lights out this year by throwing for 13 touchdowns and just 2 interceptions. The defense has not played like how people have seen them play in recent years, it doesn’t help that they’re going against one of the best offenses in football. All eyes will be on this matchup as they play on Sunday night under the lights. The Vikings are +2.5 underdogs at home against the spread.
