There’s just nothing about this game that screams “points” to me at all. The Steelers’ defense is outstanding and should limit the Bengals to very little, while the Pittsburgh offense isn’t overly explosive so there should be plenty of Najee Harris, but that also means the clock will keep moving so the actual opportunities to score should also be limited.

The Broncos are playing in Denver for the first time in the 2021 season. In their first two games, they have outscored their opponents by a combined score of 50-26. The New York Jets, on the other hand, have lost both of the games they have played so far this season, only scoring 20 points combined in those two games. The Broncos are also averaging just under 100 more total yards per game than the Jets.

Look for a game where the Jets Zach Wilson continues his struggles of throwing the ball to the wrong team, especially while trying to get used to the thin air in Denver. Bridgewater and the Broncos will run away with this game, easily covering the 11 point spread.

LAC is coming off a brutal 3-point home loss to the Cowboys last week but there’s no way the Chiefs should be giving up a TD to a division rival with their defense. KC almost lost at home to the Browns in their opener and gave up nearly 500 yards of total offense to the Ravens last Sunday night. In two matchups with the Chiefs last year, L.A lost in OT and won by 17 in the regular-season finale.

Raiders -3.0-105-3.5-110-4.0-110-4.5-105-3.0-110-3.0-125

The Raiders are off to a 2-0 start after impressive wins against Pittsburgh and Baltimore, while the Dolphins are not in a good place after Tua was forced off with an injury in a blowout loss to the Bills.

The Miami defense is good enough to keep most games close but there’s nothing to suggest that Jacoby Brissett is going to come in and lead them to a victory in Vegas, so Jon Gruden’s men should win this one easily and progress to 3-0.

Led by an early MVP contender Kyler Murray, the Arizona Cardinals are planning to extend their winning streak to three games. That shouldn’t be that hard as they’re playing against one of the NFL’s worst teams on Sunday evening.
The team in question is the Jacksonville Jaguars, who despite having a promising QB in Trevor Lawrence are 0-2. The defense has been their Achille’s Heel thus far and I doubt they can fix it in time for the Cardinals game.
