He is acquired a 97 passer ranking and a 69% completion proportion. He is an awesome residence quarterback – would not have an awesome arm however no wind inside. 

"Commanders protection allowed virtually 6.5 yards per play to the Jaguars – who've a second-year quarterback and a foul offensive line. Detroit's acquired a great O-line and loads of offensive weapons."

New England Patriots @ Pittsburgh Steelers (+2.5) - 1 p.m. ET CBS

Colin's decide, rating prediction: Patriots -2.5 (Patriots win 24-20)

Colin's ideas: "Initially, the Patriots have not began 0-2 in 21 years. Past that, Invoice Belichick has been actually sturdy towards Pittsburgh and Mike Tomlin. He holds them to about 18 factors per recreation [in the last six meetings]. Mac Jones gained six street video games final season, haven't got to fret about that. 

"What I do have to fret about is the Steelers. T.J. Watt out, Najee Harris not wholesome, and let's be sincere Mitchell Trubisky, they acquired a lead [last week] and mainly clung on to life. He averaged 5.1 yards per try with these receivers. This teaching employees would not belief him as its quarterback. I believe Belichick goes to personal him."

Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ New Orleans Saints (+2.5) - 1 p.m. ET FOX 

Colin's decide, rating prediction: Saints +2.5 (Saints win 27-24)

Colin's ideas: "Tom Brady's 0-4 towards the Saints for a motive: They have actually good defensive gamers. … Jameis Winston, for all his quirkiness, was nice within the second half [against the Falcons]. He is acquired Michael Thomas again, he had 5 catches. He is acquired Jarvis Landry now, he is a extremely good No. 2 receiver. 

"The Bucs offense has O-line points and are banged up at receiver – Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, Julio Jones, Russell Gage are all banged up this week together with their offensive line, and I get the Saints getting factors at residence? You watched Tampa final week, Dallas was dangerous. Tampa wasn't actually that good and it struggled offensively."

Chicago Bears @ Inexperienced Bay Packers (-9.5) - 8:20 p.m. ET NBC

Colin's ideas: "Pay attention, they’re 9-0 after a loss beneath [Matt] LaFleur, [Aaron] Rodgers has owned the Bears, 22-2 in his profession," Cowherd stated. "However right here’s the factor, the Bears, they acquired outgained by the Niners by 130 yards, their offensive line ranked thirty first, in keeping with PFF. They common fewer yards per play of any staff within the league and have the fewest yards. They only beat a worse offense. 

"Chicago’s not a great staff. Chicago’s acquired a foul O-line. The Packers protection, I believe it’s the most effective protection they’ve had personnel-wise perhaps in Aaron Rodgers’ profession. I believe Inexperienced Bay rolls."

Minnesota Vikings @ Philadelphia Eagles (-1.5) - 8:30 p.m. ET ABC (Monday)

Colin's decide, rating prediction: Eagles -1.5 (Eagles win 28-24)

Colin's ideas: "Love the Vikings however not Kirk Cousins on Monday night time. I am sorry, "Andy Dalton," Kirk Cousins in an enormous Monday night time recreation, I’m operating for the hills. 

"The Eagles scored 38 factors [last week]. They'd no giveaways. It’s a productive offense. They'd probably the most massive performs within the NFL final season [128], do you understand that? It’s a big-play offense, they’re simply contrarian and completely different. In opposition to the Lions in Week 1 they did it once more, passing, operating, RPOs, this can be a handful, it’s exhausting to duplicate in follow, and Kirk Cousins is 2-9 in his profession on Monday night time, and the Vikings are coming off an enormous prime-time TV divisional win."
